Face Lift

A face lift can reduce visible signs of aging and help you achieve a sleeker, more youthful appearance. Face lifts are one of the most effective ways to reduce the signs of aging and to improve your facial appearance. If you want to remove the effects of gravity, sun exposure, and daily stress, and look great at any age, a good face lift may be the answer.

As people age deep creases can form between the nose and mouth, the jaw line grows slack and jowly, and folds and fatty deposits appear around the neck. While a face lift, or rhytidectomy, can’t stop the aging process, it can work to reverse the most visible signs by removing excess fat, tightening muscles, and re-draping the skin of your face and neck.

To ensure the results you want, our plastic surgeons will assess your skin quality, hairline, hairstyle and bone structure to determine the approach that is best for you. A face lift can be done alone, or in conjunction with other procedures such as a forehead lift, neck-lift, eyelid surgery, or nose reshaping.

Face-Lift in Toronto

Our renowned cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Yasser El-Sheikh, has years of experience and excellence performing rhytidectomy procedures. Our pre and post operative care is exceptional, and combined with our patient centred philosophy will provide you with a positive and rewarding experience. We will help you regain your confidence and achieve the look you desire.

About the Face-Lift Procedure

There are several different types of face lift surgeries, each with their own unique benefits and risks. The type of facial rejuvenation surgery that is best for you depends on your objectives, and the specific features of your face and skin. Our facial plastic surgeons use a wide variety of techniques to achieve your facial rejuvenation objectives.

During your face lift surgery, bleeding spots will be cauterized to reduce bruising and swelling, making for an easier recovery.

What to expect during Face-Lift recovery

You will experience swelling and bruising during the first seven to fourteen days. However, the discomfort is minimal and easily controlled with medication. Your bandages will be removed at the Surgical Centre in a day or two after surgery. Sutures are removed, often in stages to minimize scarring, within seven days. You will be able to return to work and social activities within 2-3 weeks.

Face-Lift Results

Our goal is to help sharpen your jaw line and enhance the definition of the neck angle with improved volume and elevation of the cheeks. Our doctors will focus on delivering a result that is beautiful, natural-looking, where the middle and lower part of the face has a smoother, more youthful and natural contour – without the “wind-tunnel” look often associated with face lifts.

Final results are usually evident in six to eight weeks with continued improvement for up to six months. After that, the aging process continues. Your lifestyle choices, bone structure, skin type, sun exposure and genetics all play a role in determining the extent and longevity of your results.
