FaceLift in Ottawa by Board Certified Plastic Surgeon

Are you noticing sagging skin, wrinkles, and deep lines on your face, neck, and jawline? Are you seeing a decline in the youthful facial contour you once had? If yes, you're not alone. Most people find that, as we age, our facial skin loses elasticity and volume, leading to a tired and aged appearance that doesn't reflect how vibrant we feel inside.

Facelift surgery offers a solution to these concerns. It's not just about looking younger; it's about aligning your external appearance with your internal vitality. Whether you're experiencing loose skin, deep creases around the mouth and nose, or a general loss of muscle tone that creates jowls, a facelift can address these signs of aging, offering a refreshed and more youthful look.

If you're wondering whether facelift surgery is right for you, you've come to the right place. Let's explore how this procedure can rejuvenate your appearance, boost your confidence, and align your outer beauty with your inner youthfulness. Welcome to a world where you can look as young as you feel!

What is a FaceLift?

A facelift aims to restore a youthful, revitalized appearance with natural results.

When a facelift is done well, no one but the patient and their hairdresser should be able to tell. While the surgery is called a facelift, it mainly affects the lower third of the face and neck. This is the perfect cosmetic surgery to correct jowls, deep creases around the mouth and nose, and bands of fat in the neck. Sagging skin along the jawline is also lifted to restore a more defined and youthful jawline.

A facelift and neck lift does not restore volume to the cheeks. Therefore, fat grafting is often added to the procedure. This option will be discussed in detail during your initial consultation with Dr. MacArthur.

Most patients who undergo facelift surgery are typically in their 40s or older. For younger patients, a better option may be an individualized injectable treatment plan with fillers and Botox. Morpheus8 is also another powerful treatment we offer that delivers phenomenal results. Non-surgical treatments are great at managing wrinkles and fine lines, although they are not suitable for excess neck skin or heavy jowls.

How is FaceLift Surgery Performed?

A facelift is usually performed under general anesthesis and lasts approximately 4 hours.

Hidden incisions are made in the hairline and around the ear on both sides of the face. The hidden incisions allow access to the deeper layer, muscles, and ligaments beneath the skin. The aging changes in this layer are repaired, and the underlying foundation of the face is restored.

Once this has been completed, any remaining extra skin is removed, and the incisions are sutured closed.

Patients generally stay overnight at the surgery center or hospital with a nursing team present. Follow-up care begins one week after surgery when sutures are removed.

Most patients feel comfortable being out in public after two weeks. Bruising and swelling, however, can take longer to fade away, depending on the patient. Roughly 4 weeks after surgery, patients can return to their regular routine.

What is a mini faceLift?

A mini facelift is a less invasive procedure that focuses on the lower part of the face and has a shorter recovery time.

Am I a good candidate for a faceLift?

Good candidates are generally healthy individuals with realistic expectations who would like to address specific signs of aging on the face and often times neck they'd like to correct.

What are the different types of faceLifts?

There are several types including traditional facelift, mini facelift, neck lift, and non-surgical facelifts.

Will I have noticeable scars?

Traditional (Full) FaceLift:

    • The incision line starts at the temples (in the hairline), curves around the front of the earlobe, then goes behind the ear into the hairline.
    • You may also have a small incision under the chin if work is performed on the neck.

Mini FaceLift:

    • Shorter incision lines are strategically placed around the ear. Mini facelifts are best for patients with minimal sagging.

Neck Lift (often performed with a facelift but can be performed separately):

    • The incision line starts in front of the ear lobe and continues behind the ear, extending into the hairline. There might also be an incision underneath the chin.

What is the recovery process like After a FaceLift?

Recovery varies but typically involves rest, a special diet, and avoiding strenuous activity for several weeks. Swelling, bruising, and mild pain are common.

Will my face feel different after the procedure?

You may experience temporary numbness or tightness.

How long do the results last? 

While it can vary depending on your lifestyle, results often last 10-15 years.

Will a faceLift remove all my wrinkles?

A facelift can reduce the appearance of wrinkles, but it does not eliminate all wrinkles or fine lines to maintain natural results.

What's the difference between a faceLift and a neck lift?

 A facelift primarily targets the face, while a neck lift addresses sagging skin and excess fat in the neck area.

Can a faceLift correct a double chin?

A facelift can reduce the appearance of a double chin, but sometimes additional procedures like liposuction or a neck lift may be necessary.

Reserve A Consultation

Can I combine a faceLift with other procedures?

Yes, many people combine facelifts with procedures like brow lifts, eyelid surgeries, or skin resurfacing.

When can I return to work after a faceLift? 

Typically, patients can return to work 2-3 weeks after surgery, depending on their healing process.

When will I see the final results? 

While you'll see some results immediately, the final results typically aren't visible until swelling has fully subsided, usually a few months post-surgery.

Can a faceLift help with jowls?

Yes, a facelift can improve the appearance of jowls by tightening loose skin.

How can I ensure a good recovery?

Follow Dr. MacArthurs's post-op instructions carefully, maintain a healthy diet, avoid strenuous activities and direct sunlight, and keep your follow-up appointments.

Does a faceLift affect facial expressions?

A well-performed facelift should maintain natural facial expressions.

How can I ensure a good recovery?

Follow Dr. MacArthurs's post-op instructions carefully, maintain a healthy diet, avoid strenuous activities and direct sunlight, and keep your follow-up appointments.

How can I reduce swelling after a faceLift? 

Elevation, cold compresses, and certain medications can help reduce swelling.

What happens if I gain weight after my faceLift?

Significant weight gain can impact the results of a facelift.

Is smoking a problem for faceLift surgery?

Yes, smoking can impede healing, increase the risk of complications, and negatively impact results. Most surgeons require patients to quit smoking well in advance of surgery.

What is a liquid faceLift?

A liquid facelift is a non-surgical procedure that uses injectables like dermal fillers and Botox to rejuvenate the face.

What happens at the initial consultation?

Dr. MacArthur will discuss your goals, examine your face, discuss options, and explain potential risks and the recovery process.

Can I have a second faceLift if the results of the first one fade?

Yes, some patients choose to have a second facelift several years after the first.

How do I prepare for a faceLift?

Preparation may involve lab testing, taking certain medications, avoiding others, and stopping smoking.

What can I do to maintain my results? 

A healthy lifestyle (nutrition & exercise), good skin care routine with medical grade skincare products, and sun protection can help maintain your results.
