Want to Know if A Facelift is Right For You?


How To Decide Which Type of Facelift is Right For You

There are many different types of facelift surgery available. The procedure best suited for you will depend on your individual needs and will be discussed with your plastic surgeon during your consultation.

Some things to keep in mind are:

The procedures will differ in terms of...

  • The type of incision used
  • The area of the face being treated
  • How invasive they are

The things you should consider include...

  • The specific areas you want to improve
  • How long you are willing to spend recovering from the treatment
  • What your expectations are for the surgical outcome

Prior to undergoing any surgery, it is important to schedule a consultation with a plastic surgeon. They can help you make an informed and professional decision about which facelift procedure is right for you.

Different Types of Facelifts

The facelift is one of the most performed plastic surgeries in Canada and provides a way to combat common signs of aging on the face including drooping skin and unwanted facial lines and/or wrinkles.

While most people think there is just one type of facelift, there are in fact multiple procedures that can be used, depending on the patient’s goals.

These include:

1. Full Facelift

A full facelift, also known as a traditional facelift, is the most comprehensive form of surgery and is often requested at our private hospital to fix concerns such as:

  • Bags under the eyes
  • Sagging cheeks
  • Loose skin around the chin and jowls
  • Lines around the mouth

Because a full facelift is such a comprehensive surgery, it does come with a more extensive recovery period and a bigger scar. However, your plastic surgeon will ensure that this is as discreet as possible.

2. Mid-Facelift

A mid-facelift is very popular with younger patients who simply want to rejuvenate their face rather than opting for something more extensive.

This type of facelift focuses on areas that are first affected by aging including:

  • Cheek area below the eyelids
  • Area adjacent to the nose
  • Nose to mouth lines

This procedure also allows the plastic surgeon to specifically target muscle and skin that they wouldn’t otherwise be able to do in a full facelift.

3. Mini Facelift

Mini facelifts tend to be a great alternative to cosmetic injectables such as Botox since they give longer-lasting, more dramatic results.

This procedure focuses on areas such as:

  • Slack skin on the cheeks
  • Sagging jawline
  • Loose skin on the neck

Unlike a traditional facelift, which restores contouring and tightness to the entire face, mini-facelifts target only the lower portion of the face.

Because the surgery is less invasive, the incisions can be easily concealed to minimize visible scarring.

Why Choose our Private Hospital For Your Procedure

The decision to have a facelift is one that you need to consider seriously as it can involve extensive work and a substantial recovery time. The cost is significant and you want to make sure that the procedure is as successful as possible.

Two of the most important choices involve selecting a board-certified cosmetic surgeon and a reputable private hospital.
