Enhancing your Face Lift Before And After Results

Photographs (face lift before and after photos) are a very useful tool for people considering liposuction or any facial surgery. Dr Lanzer has built up a collection of hundreds of real cases so that you may be able to get an idea of what your result may look like. Mostly (except in makeup section) patients are not wearing make-up which of course enhances every result. Post facial rejuvenation procedures such as laser resurfacing, our beauty therapists will be able to advise you on the makeup and skin care products recommended. One of these products is called Lycogel, which is a ‘pharmaceutical foundation’ especially designed for patients who have had resurfacing to the skin. It is very safe to use, even on skin which has just undergone dermal needling (such as Dermapen). We also have a range of mineral makeup which is also quite suitable to use on recently treated skin.

Our range of skin care products includes cleansers, serums, moisturisers and creams from ‘Osmosis’. This is an exciting new range to the clinic which has outstanding reviews and enhance the results of face lift before and after results.

Taking care of yourself in general will contribute to the overall result of whatever surgery it is you are having. Hair styles can definitely enhance ones appearance and make them look more youthful when it comes to face lift before and after results. Teeth are also a factor which can contribute to aging, therefore ensuring you maintain your dental health is very important. Teeth whitening can help to make you look fresher and more rejuvenated.

Maintaining a healthy diet and exercise is very important for face lift before and after results, particularly if you are undergoing a liposuction procedure. We have a dietitian who can recommend an appropriate dietary intake for you in combination with exercise as well as recommend supplement which will best support your body and face lift results.

Mental beauty is also important, so make sure you take time to look after your levels of stress and anxiety, as these will definitely contribute to pre-mature aging and long term face lift before and after results.

One of the interesting questions that come up after the cosmetic surgery and often before cosmetic surgery is, “How old do I look?” and “How many years have been removed by me having surgery?” When judging a person’s age, Dr. Lanzer looks at the skin texture for wrinkling, at the eyelids for heaviness and loss of upper eyelid, at the drooping of the skin particularly seen around the mouth and jowl area, and at the angle of the neck.

The before photograph of the lady does have the appearance of a patient in her mid to late 70’s. There is wrinkling all the way down the cheeks and around the eyes. There are also lines on the upper lip. The upper eyelid cannot be seen because of the excess skin which is wrinkled and there is also hooding of the skin so that excess skin can be seen on the outer side of the upper eyelid. There is a small shadow of the upper eyelid which causes an aged effect. There is also significant drooping of the cheeks. Note the heaviness of the lower cheek at the junction of the lower lid and the cheek and also the prominent jowls with sagging on the lower jaw line. Finally, the angle of the neck indicates a sagging and drooping and there is no definition. Each of the above changes is an aging effect and collectively gives the appearance of quite an old lady, certainly beyond her years.

In the post photograph we have intentionally included make-up to point out how makeup can enhance a result as well as give patients better skin protection. However, makeup cannot cover the aged effects that we have described earlier. In the post photograph one can see that nearly all the lines on the cheeks have gone and the skin is smooth. Makeup would not cover the lines. Secondly, one can see her entire upper eyelid which now could have some eye shadow. Note that the sagging and hooding of the outer eyelid has also mostly resolved. The sagging of the mid-cheek to the upper lip has been improved and she now has a more natural, youthful curve rather than the sagging fold. The jowls is probably most dramatically changed in this lady as she now has extremely tight neckline and the sagging and drooping and heaviness of the neck has totally been removed. Interestingly, she now no longer has a shadowing effect of her face but rather a shadow under chin because of the very sharp margin. One can visualise the area in front of the ear and that the scars from the mini face and neck lift surgery are not visible. Makeup certainly can be used to cover those areas.

A question that could be asked of “How long would she expect these results to last?”

I would expect that the eyelid surgery would last her for most of her life as would the changes on her neck and skin texture. The lifting of the face with the mini face lift can relax in time.

Deciding on a facelift procedure can be a major step for patients, so it could help to get some insight into the treatment and the results that could be obtained from the treatment. On the Dr Lanzer Clinic website, prospective patients can find several before and after photographs taken from patients who had a facelift at the Dr Lanzer Clinic. Even though results obtained from this surgical treatment are unique for each patient, the before and after photos give patients some additional insights into the possibilities before they make their initial appointment.

There are several surgical and non-surgical treatments that could have a rejuvenating effect on the face of the patient, so it is important to discuss the results you wish to obtain from the procedure with your cosmetic surgeon. Based on your requirements, the surgeon could provide you with the most appropriate treatment, and evaluate how that treatment could affect the aesthetics of the face. Of course, the patient needs to be comfortable with his or her surgeon to convey their wishes properly, so it is best to choose a surgeon you are fully comfortable with for your facelift.
