Am I a Good Candidate for a Facelift?


Are you tired of looking at your reflection seeing how drastically you aged? Is the sight of your sagging facial skin making you feel heavy and depressed? Do you feel younger than the way you look? Fortunately, at Toronto’s Elements Spa board-certified cosmetic plastic surgeon Dr. Adibfar can restore your youthful glow by performing a facelift that heals swiftly and looks incredibly natural. Let’s take a closer look at what makes an ideal candidate for a facelift.

While a facelift used to be deemed reserved for only the more mature patients (60 and up), facelifts have always been beneficial for patients starting to see signs of aging as early as their late 40s and 50s. Patients considering a facelift often notice sagging skin along the jowls and jaw as well as lines around the chin and lips. If you notice loose, excess skin in the lower two-thirds of your face and neck and are eager to tighten and contour the skin around your jaw then a facelift by Dr. Adibfar may be a great option for you.

Depending on your skin condition, age, and desired goals, your facelift can take anywhere between 2 to 4.5 hours. Dr. Adibfar’s astute and meticulously tailored techniques will assure the best placement of incisions as well as more natural-looking results. Many patients combine a facelift with other complementary procedures to address adjacent areas including the eyes, cheeks, and neck for a more seamless appearance.  

Recovery from your facelift will depend on the extent of correction made to your face and skin as well as how well you take care of your face and general health post-procedure. For the swiftest recovery, please adhere to Dr. Adibfar’s detailed post-operative instructions. Generally speaking, recovery can take anywhere up to one month while the skin continues to assimilate for up to one year. Your lifestyle, stress, and diet can also help heal and maintain more long-lasting results by promoting healthier habits to allow your body to heal more quickly. Dr. Adibfar will also recommend a quality supportive skincare routine to recover faster and best maintain your natural-looking results post-procedure.

After a full recovery, our patients are thrilled with their facelift results. They notice reduced excess sagging skin around their jowls; a tighter defined jawline; smoother, firmer, and more contoured skin; a decrease in lines around the mouth and chin; and overall healthier, younger, and more vibrant looking skin! Patients also feel more confident in their everyday life, more spontaneous, and less self-conscious in social groups.

If you feel it’s time to finally put yourself first and to do something that makes you feel better about the way you look and feel then a facelift may be the procedure for you. Women and men of all backgrounds are enjoying the benefits of naturally looking and feeling younger while correcting a few pesky concerns that have been holding them back in their everyday life.
