Skin (Face Makeover The Lanzer Way)

Wrinkled and sun damaged skin can become much smoother, clean and refreshed as a result of laser treatments. Lasers remove the sun-damaged layers of the skin.

The erbium laser is for used for face resurfacing to remove any surface imperfections and to smooth out wrinkles. The ideal patient has fair skin and wrinkles on the upper lip and around the eyes together with blotchy sun damage. The results from resurfacing can last many years. Dr Lanzer will not do this on olive skin or Mediterranean dark skin as there is a risk of post operation pigmentation.

Lift  (Face Makeover The Lanzer Way)

There are many different types of suture lifts. Dr Lanzer uses thin stitches that are passed just under the skin to pull the skin upwards and outwards. The thread is fixed to the ear cartilage and produces an immediate lift in the skin. This is done without the need to excise any skin from the face.

The suture skin lift elevates droopy skin. We recommend patients do a mirror test on themselves. Do this by pushing the skin towards your ear and that appearance gives an idea of how the face may look. The disadvantage of this procedure is it does not last forever and there may be a fold or wrinkle in front of the ear.

Eyes  (Face Makeover The Lanzer Way)

The lower bags beneath the eye can be removed without cutting the skin on the outside. The fat that causes the tired looking shadow effect is easily accessible from the inside surface of the eyelid. Dr Lanzer uses a laser to create a very fine incision. The fat comes out through this incision.

There are no stitches or visible skin marks and the result is a more rejuvenated eyelid. Excess skin on the upper eyelid can also be removed using this technique. This results in a more open-looking eye. The Co2 laser is used for the eye areas.

Lips and Cheeks  (Face Makeover The Lanzer Way)

Many women seek fillers for lip and cheek enhancement to replace lost volume that typically occurs with ageing.

Liposculpture of the Neck Area  (Face Makeover The Lanzer Way)

Liposculpture will produce a long lasting effect, which tightens the neckline area.

Non-Surgical Facial Shaping Treatments


Dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle injections can be used to rejuvenate, add volume, lift and reshape the face without surgery.

A makeover may benefit from some non-surgical options such as face muscle relaxants and fillers.

Areas include

Frown, Brow, Forehead, Crows Feet, Nasolabial folds, Lip augmentation, Accordion lines, Lip rejuvenation, Chin, Mouth frown, Marionette lines

Lip enhancement: Filler can be injected into the lips and the areas around the lips to promote volume, shape and size of the lips

Cheek enhancement: Filler can help replace the volume in the cheeks that has been lost with the ageing process.

Muscle relaxants or Anti-wrinkle injections help to relax muscles in the face and wrinkle areas leaving a soft and natural appearance.


The Venus Freeze is a non-surgical device that Dr Lanzer has helped introduce to Australia for face and body treatments. The device allows for anti-ageing treatments, circumferential reduction, cellulite reduction and skin tightening. The treatment is virtually painless and promotes natural skin healing without injuring delicate skin. The Ulthera is the new Ultrasound face skin tightening therapy that helps tighten and lift the skin. As it is non-surgical results can vary.

Makeover and Makeup

Dr Lanzer is a great advocate of makeup. Makeup protects the skin from sun damage, which is the primary cause of aged skin. A sunblock cream relies on a chemical reaction to block the suns rays whilst the makeup forms a physical barrier almost like putting a curtain in front of the sun. Naturally the makeup is stronger. A lot of research has gone into sun blocks and Dr Lanzer prefers mineral makeup, which still allows the skin to breathe. Dr Lanzer strongly recommends makeup after a face erbium laser or face makeover because it covers the initial pink skin, protects the skin from the sun and most of all it enhances the result. Makeup on wrinkled skin does not always look good but on a fresh lasered skin always makes the results look better.

Here is a collection of photos of three sisters who underwent a “makeover with Dr Lanzer” and was featured on the Today Tonight program on channel Seven in 2009.

Part of the makeover was surgical but they also had a cosmetic makeover. This means they have had their hair done and are wearing makeup and new clothes. Please take this into consideration when assessing the results of the surgical makeover.

Also note, these are not meant to demonstrate before and after shots in the surgical sense as they are in different poses. The purpose of the photos is to outline how an overall change including a cosmetic makeover can lead to a nice natural result.

A facelift procedure can change the aesthetics of the face to meet the desired result the patient wishes to obtain. However, the patient must have realistic expectations about the results he or she can obtain from a surgical procedure, so it is important to discuss what you expect from your procedure with your cosmetic surgeon. Based on your requirements, the cosmetic surgeon will discuss your facelift and give you a better idea of what to expect from the treatment. If you wish to discuss a possible facelift with Dr Lanzer, please make an appointment at the Dr Lanzer Clinic by contacting our support team via chat, web form, email or telephone.
