Facelifts are for patients, not surgeons

Toronto is home to some of the top plastic surgeons in the world, and the technical skill available for cosmetic surgery patients is world-class. But the preoccupation of many surgeons with how high they can lift a brow or a jowl is preventing these surgeons from appreciating that our patients are seeking to look better, but not different. Particularly with facial rejuvenation surgery, appearing ‘done’ is not a worthy goal. We arent advocating ‘mini-lifts’, as these minimally-invasive procedures don’t maintain their effects over time. Instead, we focus on safe techniques that provide lasting but subtle improvements. Our favourite thing to hear from our patients is that everyone is complementing them on how well-rested they look!

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
