Nobody wants to look like they've had surgery. They just want to look better.

Toronto, ON (PRWEB) October 17, 2013

Toronto cosmetic surgery clinic, Edelstein Cosmetic, has customized surgical techniques applied during the facelift procedure to help facial rejuvenation patients experience natural-looking, long lasting results. These techniques have been designed to reduce the risk of an unfavourable aesthetic outcome, as defined by an informal survey conducted by lead Plastic Surgeon at the clinic, Dr. Jerome Edelstein. The average age range of patients undergoing a facelift at Edelstein Cosmetic is from 50 to 70 years old.

"I have found that patients who seek a facelift, or any other facial rejuvenation procedure for that matter, prefer a result that makes them look younger. They want to look more refreshed and revitalized, and not display the telltale signs of their surgery,” states Dr. Edelstein. “Nobody wants to look like they've had surgery. They just want to look better. The common misconception is that a facelift involves pulling on the skin, when in reality, it's more the supporting substructure that needs to be tightened for a favourable results."

Dr. Edelstein conducted an informal survey of patients and their expectations of surgery over a two-year span. All patients preferred results that are natural looking. Unfavourable results of a facelift include looking “windswept”, “plastic”, and “overly tight”. Patients also expressed concern about visible scarring.

One surgical technique to minimize the risk of an unfavourable outcome is selecting the correct type of facelift to perform, based on a comprehensive pre-surgical consultation. For patients with severe sagging, particularly noticeable along the jawline, a more invasive approach tends to achieve the most effective results, such as an Extended SMAS facelift. This technique targets tissues below the skin, specifically the fascia and fat deposits. When performed correctly, the Extended SMAS facelift creates a longer lasting improvement that does not look artificial.
