Facelift in Montreal

The aging process marks the face with the person’s life, signs of laughter, love, sadness and tears. Every face tells a unique story shaped by past experiences. Aging gracefully does not have to mean accepting sagging facial skin or a droopy neck. A facelift procedure can be performed to freshen one’s appearance and reverse some of the unpleasant signs of aging, while striving to maintain a natural look.

Facelift and neck lift (Rhytidectomy) in Montreal

The surgery

A facelift (rhytidectomy) is a cosmetic procedure to lift up and pull back the sagging skin around the mid-face, the lower face and the neck. The surgery is performed in our certified surgical center under local anesthesia with sedation.

An incision is made in front of the ear, around the ear lobe and behind the ear. The goal is to have the best scar possible, as hidden as possible, and without distorting the earlobe, hairline, sideburn or cheek.

The sagging muscle is tightened and the skin pulled back. The excess skin is then removed. Dr. Amanda Fanous performs the “Optimum Mobility” technique, a mini-invasive approach consisting of a limited dissection and a muscle plication technique (meaning the muscle is sutured back on itself without being cut). The surgery takes about 3 hours. The patient is sent home shortly after the surgery with a bandage around the head. Recovery usually takes around 2 weeks. Some bruising and pain may occur.

“Mini lift”

In select cases, the practice of a shorter incision and a smaller facial surgery may be performed, termed “mini facelift”. It is usually done under local anesthesia only. The recovery is usually fast. In general, patients are presentable in a few days with proper hairstyle and makeup. This mini lift is a nice compromise for people who are interested in a facelift but do no want to have a big surgery. The mini-lift can also be done as a touch-up procedure many years after a previous facelift to refresh the face.
