Your Mini Facelift In Brisbane Explained
Your Mini Facelift In Brisbane Explained
The mini facelift is a relatively common procedure these days. Many patients obtain this facelift surgery to reduce some visible signs of ageing on the lower part of the face; this may include drooping skin and loose facial muscle. Through this rejuvenation treatment, they can obtain a more youthful appearance and counter some of the signs caused by the ageing process.
Since the mini facelift can involve the use of certain techniques, it is important for patients to be informed about the procedure and its effects before having it. If you would like some additional information about this treatment, please read the information provided by our team below.
What Will A Cosmetic Surgeon Do During A Mini Facelift In Brisbane?
During a mini facelift, the cosmetic surgery will use several techniques to address sagging skin (also known as skin laxity) and tighten the facial muscles. Loose muscles and skin can make a patient appear older, especially when they occur along the jowls and jawline, so these are the basics that will be addressed during this kind of procedure. However, it is important to know that the mini facelift takes place on the lower face; this opposed to other facelift procedures that look at the mid face or the brow lift and forehead lift that looks at the top part of the face and frown lines specifically.
To execute the procedure, your cosmetic surgery will make a strategic incision to gain access to the treatment area. The incision will be in a location that is difficult to detect by the naked eye, so others cannot immediately see that you had a mini facelift.
Patients should know that their cosmetic surgery will make a recommendation for a certain treatment depending on the problem they want to address. For example, if a patient has a sagging neck and an undefined neckline, the cosmetic surgery might recommend a neck lift or liposuction of the neck. During these procedures, excess skin or excess fat can be removed depending on the patient’s requirements.
For ageing problems on the top half of the face, patients can look at other treatment options, including the blepharoplasty. During this treatment, the cosmetic surgery will execute eyelid surgery; this includes the removal of loose skin on the upper or lower eyelids as well as the removal of fat. If the main signs of ageing are centred around the eyes, then these facelift techniques can eliminate the need for more invasive treatments.
Please note that most facelift techniques can be done under a local anaesthetic or a general anaesthetic. The type of anaesthetic used during the procedure can be down to the treatment complexity. In other words, some patients may need a procedure that includes the services of an anaesthetist to ensure their comfort and safety. Dr Lanzer has been working with the same anaesthetist for years, enabling patients to get an affordable price for their treatment.
Since there are various factors that can determine your suitability for a procedure, for example your bone structure and excess skin, it is important to get the advice from an experienced cosmetic surgery. We also recommend getting a second opinion, so you can head into your treatment with all the info you need.
What Are Some Common Results I Can Expect From A Mini Facelift?
We always tell our patients that results are unique to the individual, and this is pretty much the case. Every patient has unique features and therefore the procedure can create some unique results for them; this is also one of the reasons why results can be difficult to predict beforehand.
On our website, patients can view some examples of the mini facelift through our case studies. Our case studies include photographs of patients who had a mini facelift at The Dr Lanzer Clinic, which enables prospective patients to see what kind of results could arise from this kind of procedure.
Patients often wonder what the difference is between this procedure and an S-lift in terms of results. There is a small trick that patients can use to predict some of the results they could obtain. If you push the skin towards the ear, you can see some indication of the changes the face will undergo as a result of a mini facelift. Of course, patients must consider that these are not the exact results they will get, just a small indication of them. However, patients whose visible signs of ageing are centred in the lower part of the face tend to be the best candidates for this treatment.
What Is The Average Age Reduction Patients Experience After A Mini Facelift?
This is different for everybody. Some patients will experience an age reduction of ten years, while others get an age reduction of fifteen years. While we can provide patients with a general idea of the age reduction they can expect, this is an aspect of the surgery that is difficult to predict.
The results obtained through a mini facelift are also subject to the patient’s skincare routine post-surgery. For example, a patient who has a good skincare routine could enhance the results they have obtained from the mini facelift. Other patients could enhance their results by obtaining additional skincare treatments such as laser resurfacing.

Does The Mini Facelift Have Any Side-Effects?
It is not uncommon for patients to experience some side-effects after a mini facelift, since this is still a surgical procedure. It is important for patients to be fully informed about these side-effects as well as the aftercare.
Two common symptoms patients can encounter after their mini facelift are swelling and bruising. These symptoms usually subside with the natural healing process, so this will start to decrease as your body starts to heal. And while the mini facelift only requires a small incision, patients must keep the treatment area clean and protected during their recovery.
Patients will receive some detailed aftercare guidelines from The Dr Lanzer medical team before leaving the clinic. Patients are also required to attend a follow-up appointment, during which Dr Lanzer will evaluate the patient’s recovery as well as the results obtained during the procedure.
There are certain things patient must avoid during their recovery time too; this includes avoiding strenuous activity. However, patients should do some light walking to avoid complications during their recovery. So, patients should only return to their regular exercise routine once they receive the all clear from Dr Lanzer. It is also important not to evaluate the final result until you had sufficient time to heal. The facial skin will need some time to heal, and there can be bruising and swelling shortly after your treatment.
Please be aware that it is important to avoid sun damage during your recovery. As you may know, the sun can cause premature signs of ageing when the skin is left unprotected. So, be sure to follow the guidelines given to you during your initial consultation or the advice provided by Dr Lanzer and his associates regarding your recovery. Patients should also refrain from any strenuous activities during this time. Dr Lanzer and his associates will be able to provide you with an estimate on when to resume your normal activities.
If you have any questions about your aftercare after leaving the surgery, you can always contact our clinic for more information. Even though patients receive all relevant information before their surgery, it is not uncommon for patients to have specific questions post-surgery.
