When Is a Facelift Right for You?

For those of us lucky enough to grow old, the physical outcomes of aging can be distressing and difficult to accept. This is especially true if you generally feel healthy, vibrant, and youthful. When your external appearance doesn’t match your internal feelings, it can be difficult to watch lines set in and your features droop. Many people who consider a surgical facelift here in Montreal struggle with the question of “when.” When is the best age to undergo surgery—when will it yield the most meaningful, long-lasting results? The answer isn’t as simple as one might hope. There is no perfect age when facelift surgery becomes ideal. Instead, it’s almost entirely based on the level of facial aging that’s present. Because every person ages differently, some may be “ready” for facelift surgery by their mid-40s, while others feel comfortable delaying the surgery until their 60s. Typically, I look for the following…

What Is The Recovery For A Facelift?

Looking as young as you feel on the inside is not impossible. A facelift, clinically called a rhytidectomy, reverses the signs of aging by correcting sagging skin, wrinkles and creases. A facelift in our Montreal office can also heighten the natural beauty of your features, pulling the skin back and accentuating your contours. Undergoing a facelift procedure is an important decision. Make sure you consult with your plastic surgeon regarding all options prior to making a decision. Recovery time varies for different individuals, but generally patients must rest for at least two weeks prior to resuming normal day-to-day activities. However, your true results will not be noticeable until you are fully healed, which may take anywhere from one to four months. It can even take a full year to see the absolutely complete results. Remember to always wear sunscreen, as your post-surgery skin will be very sensitive. Four Stages of…

How to Sleep Safely After a Facelift

Sleep, after any surgery, is one of the best ways to boost your immune system and help your body heal faster. However, sleep is often difficult in the postoperative phase, especially after facelift surgery. Facelift patients are advised not to sleep on their sides and try to sleep with as little movement as possible at least for the first week after surgery in order to avoid pressure on the surgical sites which can damage sutures, cause bleeding and increase swelling. What is the ideal sleeping position post-facelift surgery? The ideal sleeping position for facelift patients is in on the back with the head raised above the heart. This sleeping position may be difficult for people who are used to sleeping on their sides, so it may be a good idea to start this practice a few months before the surgery. Sleeping on your back is a good habit to develop regardless…

Stages of Recovering from Facelift Surgery

Recovering from facelift surgery is a gradual process, and this process is best described in stages. It usually takes a full year to recover, but if done properly it will go smoothly and with minimal inconvenience. Stage One Resting is of primary importance during the first week of recovery; however, this does not mean you should be confined to bed for the entire time. You should be able to move around within 48 hours after surgery. Common symptoms are fatigue and nausea (usually due to pain medication) as well as swelling and bruising on the face (due to surgery). You may also feel stiffness and soreness in the neck, ears, and face, but if you take your medication as prescribed by the surgeon the discomfort should be minimal. Remember that even though you can move around, activities should remain light. Stage Two Bruising and swelling normally occurs on one or…

Comparison Between Brow Lift And Face Lift

Patients who are new to the cosmetic field often confuse two common cosmetic procedures: facelifts and brow lifts. Although they have similar intended effects on the body, the differences between the two procedures should be appreciated before making any decision to undergo cosmetic surgery. Face Lift Procedure The facelift procedure is designed to treat aesthetic issues in the mid to lower area of the face, such as wrinkles (a common sign of ageing). Starting with the temple, the surgeon makes an incision that extends downward from the back of the ear to the lower scalp. He/she will lift and tighten the facial muscles to improve appearance. Excess pockets of fat and skin will also be removed to minimise the appearance of ageing. Benefits of a Facelift Procedure The benefits of a facelift procedure include: reduced sagging of jowls; minimization of the double chin appearance and reduced wrinkles giving a more…
