The ultimate goal with any facelift is to restore a youthful appearance without leaving an operated look. Here at FACE Cosmetic Surgery Toronto, we are known for our exceptional, natural looking facelift results. Aging may be a fact of life but the good news is that its unwelcome effects simply don’t have to be.
With age comes loss of volume and elasticity in the skin and underlying tissues. This phenomenon is perhaps most noticeable in the face, where it can result in deep folds, lines and shadows that dramatically change the way we look in the mirror. Jowls along the jaw-line and sagging of the neck and chin give one the appearance of premature aging, weight-gain and overall fatigue.
Early signs of aging can often be addressed with a “liquid facelift” using injectable fillers, but for more advanced signs of aging, where long long-lasting results are desired, a facelift is often the right choice. When performed by a skilled surgeon, a facelift procedure can yield excellent, organic looking results for both men and women.
Facelift surgery procedures demand technical proficiency and an impeccable artistic sensibility on the part of the operating surgeon. Many plastic surgeons perform basic facial surgery procedures to address the exterior of the face, but when the inner workings of the face are not properly attended to the results are short-lived and unnatural.
