Are you planning a facelift in Toronto? There’s a lot you’ll need to know. We’re helping out by listing 9 of the most important questions to ask before you proceed with the exciting next steps.

Toronto facelift consultation checklist- bring these questions to your first appointment

1. Is your chosen facial plastic surgeon certified by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada? This is the only accreditation college in Canada and the one your surgeon needs to be considered highly trained and accountable as a surgeon.

2. Ask your surgeon how long they’ve been performing this procedure and if they focus on the face. Some general plastic surgeons will work on multiple body areas, but many prefer to specialize because concentrating your attention and practice makes for a higher skill level.

3. You’ll want to choose someone who performs this procedure regularly, as part of their practice specialty, not a surgeon who only does one or two of these per year.

Over time, our facial skin loses its natural elasticity, collagen and hydration capabilities. The first signs may be fine lines around the eyes or mouth, thinning lips, hollowing cheeks or frown lines. Find out more about facelifts.

1. Ask to see Toronto facelift before and after photos. Not everyone is comfortable sharing their digital image online, but within your surgeon’s office, you should be able to view numerous clear examples of their before and after results.

2. Ask where your surgery will be performed. The Verso Surgery Centre is a fully equipped, level 3 OHP surgical centre, which means its operating rooms and other facilities are held to the highest standard. Aside from functioning as a private hospital, our surgical centre offers a discrete, welcoming feel that our patients appreciate.

3. Am I a good candidate? Not everyone who consults for this procedure needs one or will benefit from a facelift. For some, it is too soon, and for others, there is a better technique or approach for them. The best way to find out what procedure can help you look and feel your best is to visit a specialist and gather feedback.

4. What are the risks associated? Every surgery comes with inherent risks. Your surgeon should be completely open and honest with you about what those are, and how they plan to mitigate risks or handle any that arise.

5. What should I do to prepare? Knowing how to plan for an excellent recovery is essential. Everything from optimal timing, to planning time off work and help at home, will be beneficial as you heal. Your surgeon will let you know if you need to stop taking any medications or make a lifestyle adjustment before proceeding.

6. What does my surgical quote cover? In most cases, the quote provided to you will show your total procedure cost, including all pre and post-operative appointments. It may not include any supportive garments, medications or post-surgery treatments. Your surgeon will be happy to explain the various fees that make up your bill and answer your questions.

7. How can I ensure long-lasting results? Certainly, your health and the way you care for your skin will improve the longevity of your facelift. Everything from the food you eat to the water you drink, exercise and sun protection will help provide glowing, youthful skin. Ask your surgeon to advise you or refer you to their medical aesthetician for help keeping your complexion bright.
