The Facelift: Frequently Asked Questions Overview

The facelift is one of the best-known cosmetic procedures. It is also the treatment many people associate with cosmetic surgery. Still, despite the fact that a facelift is well-known across the world, patients who are considering the procedure will require more information about it. To help patients get more informed about the facelift, we have created an overview of info below.

Am I A Good Candidate for a Facelift Procedure?

Patients who are considering a facelift should be in good general health. The patient cannot suffer from any conditions that could become a problem during the procedure or the healing process. Patients will be evaluated during an initial consultation with Dr Lanzer to determine if they are a good candidate for the procedure.


Can Certain Lifestyle Choices Influence the Results Obtained by a Facelift?

Making poor lifestyle choices can influence the results obtained from a procedure. For example, patients who smoke can experience signs of premature ageing. If a patient continues to smoke after their facelift procedure, certain premature signs of ageing can return.

Patients who do not quit smoking before their facelift procedure can encounter some complications too. Smoking can slow down the healing process and increase the chance of infections. Thus, it is recommended that patients stop smoking before the procedure takes place.

Of course, the opposite is true as well. Patients who make good lifestyle choices can enhance the results of their procedure. Adopting a good skincare routine, drinking plenty of water, and enjoying a balanced diet are all things that can contribute to a better and healthier skin.

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.

What Techniques Are Used to Execute a Facelift?

There are different types of facelifts that can be implemented by a cosmetic surgeon. The type of facelift used by a cosmetic surgeon will be subject to the specific problems the patient wants to correct. Thus, the best type of facelift for your needs will be determined during your initial consultation with Dr Lanzer.

Since there are many techniques that can be implemented for a facelift, it is important to choose the right surgeon. Experience matters when it comes to executing a facelift, so be sure to evaluate the experience of your cosmetic surgeon before you choose him or her.

Dr Daniel Lanzer is a cosmetic surgeon with more than twenty-five years of experience. He specialises in rejuvenation treatments; this includes the facelift, but also other treatments such as laser resurfacing, the blepharoplasty, and other treatments that can make the patient look younger.


Does the Patient Need to Prepare for a Facelift?

During your initial consultation with Dr Lanzer, the preparation for the facelift will be explained. Preparations can be different for every patient. Below, we have explained which measures could be implemented for patients who are about to have a facelift.

There are certain medications that can have a negative influence on the body during the procedure. To prevent this, Dr Lanzer may ask you to stop certain medications several weeks before the procedure takes place. If the medication is medically necessary, an alternative can be suggested so the treatment can take place safely for the patient in question.

Since certain medication can interfere with your procedure or your recovery process, it is important to report any medications you are taking to Dr Lanzer during your initial consultation.

Medications are not solely limited to prescribed medications, they can also include homeopathic remedies, vitamins, and more. So, make sure to report each medication you take on a regular basis, or the medication you intend to take shortly after the procedure or during the time of your procedure.

How Long Do I Need to Recover After a Facelift?

There are many factors that can influence the recovery time after a facelift. Firstly, the type of facelift can directly influence the recovery time. Secondly, each patient heals in his or her own time, so giving an exact timeframe for your recovery is not possible.

During your recovery, it is always best to listen to your own body. While excessive exercise is not recommended, patients should certainly do some light walking to prevent the formation of blood clots after a facelift. Your recovery is important, to make sure to follow the recovery guidelines provided to you by The Dr Lanzer Clinic.
