The Facelift At The Dr Lanzer Clinic: Essential Information

The Facelift At The Dr Lanzer Clinic: Essential Information

Request Consultation

Patients who consider having a facelift can find detailed information about this procedure on The Dr Lanzer Clinic website; this enables patients to look up vital info about the treatment before their initial appointment, so patients can ask any questions they have during their first consultation.

Below, the Dr Lanzer team has compiled a list with essential information about the facelift. If you wish to learn more about the facelift before your initial appointment, be sure to read on.

Who Is Eligible For A Facelift?

Most patients who want to address common signs of ageing on the face tend to be eligible for a facelift procedure. Of course, patients who want this procedure should be in good health; this to ensure the patient can recover properly from the treatment.

Your suitability for a facelift will be determined during your initial consultation with Dr Lanzer. During your appointment, you can also tell Dr Lanzer about the problems you are encountering and what you hope to obtain after the procedure; this provides patients with a realistic view about the procedure outcome before they have their treatment.


What Do I Need To Do Before My Facelift?

There are some factors patients must take into consideration before having their facelift. For example, if you are a smoker, Dr Lanzer will recommend that you stop smoking several weeks before your procedure. Smoking can influence the results from your procedure, cause complications, and even cause more premature signs of ageing in the future. So, to recover properly from your treatment and to avoid complications during your recovery, a patient should always stop smoking.

Patients who are taking certain medications or supplements should always report this to Dr Lanzer. You must also report any sensitivities or allergies to certain medications, as they could be applicable for your procedure.

There are certain medications that can influence your recovery or interfere with your procedure. If you are taking such medications for a medical problem, Dr Lanzer can recommend a more suitable alternative before your procedure.

Discover Rhytidectomy Advantages!

An increasingly large amount of patients now opt for Rhytidectomy procedures. A rhytidectomy can be combined with other rejuvenating procedures as well, depending on the aesthetic needs of the patient in questions; this includes neck lifts, brow lifts, blepharoplasty and similar procedures.

How Long Do I Need To Recover From A Facelift?

The recovery time after a facelift is different for every patient; this due to the fact that every patient is unique, so the recovery time is unique as well. While The Dr Lanzer Clinic does provide an overall estimate of your recovery time, patients must take into consideration that their recovery time could be a little more or a little less. Therefore, the most important factor about your recovery is listening to your own body.

Shortly after your procedure, you will have to avoid strenuous exercise. Excessive exercise shortly after your treatment could cause complications, so patients should only resume their normal exercise activities once given the all clear from The Dr Lanzer Clinic.

Even though patients are advised to refrain from strenuous exercise, some light walking after a facelift is recommended. Light walking after your procedure does not only enhance your recovery, it also keeps complications such as blood clots at bay.

Before you leave the clinic after a facelift, The Dr Lanzer Clinic will also provide you with some post-operative guidelines. These guidelines provide you with essential information about your recovery, so patients should follow the recommendations carefully to promote the healing process and prevent complications.

Even though complications are rare, patients should always remember that complications are always a possibility, no matter how unlikely. If you believe you are encountering a complication during your recovery from the facelift, it is advised to contact your cosmetic surgeon immediately.

To ensure your recovery is going well, you will be asked to attend a follow-up appointment at The Dr Lanzer Clinic. During the follow-up appointment, Dr Lanzer will evaluate the treatment area and determine if your recovery is going well. During this appointment, you will also receive additional advice on your recovery.


Can I Predict The Results I Will Obtain From A Facelift?

Predicting results is not an exact science, especially when you consider that each person is unique. However, Dr Lanzer can provide patients with a little more insight on the results they could expect.

Prospective patients can view some examples of facelift results in our section of case studies. Please note that these are just examples, as the results you obtain from a facelift can be quite different.
