What non-surgical options are available at your practice for anti-aging?

Dr. Arthur Swift of Montreal is a plastic surgeon, but also understands that many patients may want a non-invasive way to improve the way they look. Using non-surgical treatments such as dermal fillers and other injectables, laser skin resurfacing, and skin care regimens, patients can address the signs of aging and reduce the appearance of age spots, fine lines, and wrinkles.

How much recovery time is necessary for surgery?

The recovery time and downtime needed after a surgical treatment will vary depending on the treatment done, the patient’s current activity level, and the severity of the condition. In most cases, recovery time can range anywhere from a few days to several weeks, depending on the treatment performed. Dr. Arthur Swift will discuss what they can expect after treatment during the consultation prior to the surgery being performed. Consultation appointments and follow-up visits are the best time to talk to the plastic surgeon about the expectations before, during, and after surgery.

How can cosmetic injectables provide patients with a “liquid facelift?”

Cosmetic injectables are commonly used by plastic surgeons and dermatologists to offer patients an alternative to invasive surgical interventions. Dermal fillers and injectables are beneficial for patients who want to address mild to moderate fine lines and wrinkles on the face. Some injectables help volumize the area and others can reduce muscle contractions to smooth the texture of the face. Dr. Arthur Swift is happy to discuss the benefits of injectables and explain how they can be used to provide patients with a less invasive “liquid facelift.”
