  • Tightened lax muscles, which eliminates jowls and improves tone
  • Removal of excess, loose skin which smooths the jawline and neck
  • Improved definition of facial features
  • Elimination of excess fat for a slimmer contour

The Steps of a Facelift


Deciding if a Facelift is Right For You

As we stated above, at our practice in Toronto, facelift surgery is an excellent option for both men and women who are bothered by the aged appearance of their face. Individuals with sagging and loose facial skin and noticeable folds and creases on their face can benefit from a facelift. Facelift surgery is an excellent option for people with:

  • Sagging cheeks
  • Loose skin around the jawline
  • Noticeable folds around the neck
  • Noticeable wrinkles around the mouth and nose

How a facelift is performed?

During a traditional facelift procedure, incisions are made around the ears in well-hidden creases and extend into the hairline. This allows us to lift, tighten, and sculpt deep tissues of the lower face to produce a younger-looking appearance with firmer and smoother skin.

The incisions for a lower facelift are made behind the ear to help conceal any post-surgical marks and provide more a natural-looking result. Any excess fat along the lower face is carefully removed. The underlying facial muscles are tightened and repositioned and the facial skin is carefully lifted and tightened to give the face a more youthful appearance.

Our experienced plastic surgeons perform facelift procedures using local and intravenous sedation, or general anesthesia. All surgeries are different and vary based on patient needs, but typically a facelift procedure takes between three and four hours to complete.

Mini Facelift

At Avenue Plastic Surgery, we also offer a lower facelift, also known as a mini-lift, for patients that have aesthetic concerns concentrated around the lower third of their face. Bothe a facelift and lower facelift can be combined with other facial rejuvenation procedures like a brow lift or neck lift.

Facelift Recovery

After your Toronto facelift surgery, you can expect your recovery time to last approximately 1-2 weeks. Following the surgical procedure, the treated areas will be dressed to protect and promote healing. We’ll provide you with a prescription for medication to help manage any discomfort that you may experience. Facelift patients typically stay overnight and ice packs can be applied for comfort within that initial 24-hour period as well. You should expect to see some swelling and bruising, which can appear dramatic but is quite expected and temporary. We recommend that patients have a couple of weeks set aside from regular work and activities so they can relax and recover in comfort at home. After this time, the majority of swelling and bruising will have resolved. You’ll see your plastic surgeon again within the first week of your recovery for a follow-up assessment.

How Much Does a Facelift Cost in Toronto?

A facelift is a highly personalized procedure. The cost of your Toronto facelift will vary based on the type of facelift performed along with other factors. The average cost of a facelift at Avenue Plastic Surgery is around $17,000. Financing options are available that can help make the payment process more manageable for our patients.

Facelift Surgery FAQs

Your Facelift Questions Answered

Can a facelift be combined with other procedures?

  • Many patients combine a facelift with a brow lift, eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty), or neck lift. The combination of the surgeries can add to your desired rejuvenated appearance.

What type of anesthesia is used in a Facelift?

  • Our expert plastic surgeons perform facelift surgeries using local and intravenous sedation, or general anesthesia.

Can I have a facelift if I’ve already had one?

The doctors are also comfortable performing a facelift on patients who failed to receive the desired expectations from their first attempt. Dr. Golger and Dr. Romy are both board-certified plastic surgeons and can help correct any errors from a first attempt or perform a second facelift if results have begun to fade.

What are the associated risks of a facelift procedure?

  • Because a facelift procedure is a surgery, like any other surgical procedure, there are associated risks to be aware of.
