Facelift Surgery (Rhytidectomy)

There are many contributing factors which can take a toll on your face including sun exposure, stress and age, to name a few. These factors can leave you dealing with unwanted wrinkles, folds and loose skin. Facelift surgery, technically known as rhytidectomy, is a popular procedure that reduces these imperfections and provides you the opportunity to look several years younger.

Facelift Surgery: Are You A Candidate?

Most patients who undergo facelifts are between 40 and 60 years old. Facelift surgery addresses the following issues:

  • Deep creases along the mouth and nose
  • Wrinkles beside the eyes, or "crow's feet"
  • Loose, sagging skin in the middle of the face
  • Sagging neck and jaw skin
  • Double chin

Patients looking into a facelift procedure should be healthy, and non-smokers to prevent complications during the recovery process. Because rhytidectomy addresses the lower portions of the face and neck, individuals who want to improve the signs of aging around the eyes may be better candidates for eyelid surgery in Toronto.

Your Facelift

A mommy makeover can be made custom based on what you like, your body shape, and our surgeon's recomendations. For example, for some women a breast lift may be more suitable than breast implants.

You may find that a tummy tuck would also be suitable for you as it is used to flatten your abdomen by eliminating excess, sagging skin. We can also tighten abdominal muscles that have weakened as a result of pregnancy. Finally we may also provide liposuction to remove residual fat from the abdomen and flanks.

Every woman's body is different, so a mommy makeover can include several different combinations of these procedures. Our team will go over your options at your consultation and help determine the best plan for your individual needs.

Results and Aftercare for Mommy Makeover Surgery

Your recovery time is highly dependent on the extent of your surgery, especially for mommy makeovers, which can involve a number of surgery combinations. Body and breast procedures can both lead to some tenderness, bruising and swelling. You may need to wear a surgical bra and compression garment in the weeks following your mommy makeover to ensure the best results and help with healing. Tummy tuck patients will no longer need surgical drains left in place to help prevent fluid accumulation.

Remember that our team at ULC are both highly skilled and experienced in these procedures, and we will do everything in our power to minimize discomfort and allow you to recover as quickly as possible.
