Case Study: Face Lift Before And After Photos

Many patients present for neck lift with facial movement and aging. The skin can develop a change in texture. Ultimately, that texture moves into wrinkles and creases. Folding and moving of the neck causes further wrinkling and the skin sags down. The wrinkling can be appreciated when looking at the side-on view of these photographs and the post photograph shows how much elevation we have removed. Quite a large amount of skin is excised from behind the ear. Deep more long term stitches are placed in the muscle in order to hold the tissue up in a higher plane before the skin is removed.

The surface is closed with absorbable sutures which usually dissolve after about 10 day’s time. I enclosed this photograph with makeup to show how makeup can enhance results of cosmetic surgery. Cosmetic surgery elevates the skin and also makes the skin texture smoother and cleaner. Makeup placed on that type of skin does have an extra beauty appearance. Many patients complain that makeup can make wrinkles and acne scars appear worse which we see on the face and the neck. The other advantage of the makeup is that it protects the skin from the sun and may cover any early pinkness that can occur after laser resurfacing. This photograph also shows the importance of combining procedures. The erbium laser has become my favorite laser for resurfacing. In the early days, I would use a CO2 laser to treat the wrinkles. However, the CO2 does create more heat which translates usually into more redness and more risk of scarring. The early lasers were individual pulses which required a lot of control from the doctor. Now the laser is all computerised so there is much more even and smoothing and control of the laser by the cosmetic surgery or Dermatologist surgeon.

Today this lady is actually going to have some fillers of her face just to enhance the elevation of the brow and to give the cheeks some more volume. Sometimes after face lifts, it is still worthwhile considering volume fillers such as manmade products or patients own fat. Currently, we are using fat transfer which is enhanced by stem cells that may make the fat last longer. The advantage of using the patient’s own fat is that there is a lot more volume to use and it may have a more long term result. Many patients do find it difficult as to which is the right procedure for them. I would make that decision based on what areas they are bothered by and often it will be a combination of procedures to get the best results. Most patients these days are steering away from deep plane face lifts and are trying to avoid the startled look. A few actors on Australian television have had that sort of surgery; it has not been a good ambassador for the bigger dramatic surgery. We always offer a free no-obligation consultation in our accredited day surgery center.

The before and after photographs displayed on our website are obtained from patients who had a cosmetic surgery procedure at the Dr Lanzer Clinic. In the case study above, it concerned a female patient who decided to have a facelift procedure at our clinic. All photographs displayed on our website are displayed with the consent of our patients. By allowing us to use photographs of their treatment, they give us the opportunity to show other patients what the possibilities of a certain treatment are. Even though results are different for each person, it does give the patient more insight into the facelift treatment.

Patients can acquire more information about facelifts on our website as well. We have created several information pages for each of the treatments that can be executed at the Dr Lanzer Clinic, so patients can use those patients to learn more about the treatment they wish to obtain at our clinic.

Patients can also make an appointment at the Dr Lanzer Clinic and speak to Dr Lanzer himself about a possible facelift treatment.

Who Is A Good Candidate For The Facelift?

A good facelift patient is usually someone who experiences some sagginess in the face due to the natural ageing process. The sagginess can be caused by a lack of volume as well as natural changes to the patient’s bone structure and muscle elasticity.

What Other Treatments Are Available For Facial Rejuvenation?

Facelift surgery is one of the cosmetic procedures that is used for facial rejuvenation. Of course, this procedure is done to achieve certain aesthetic goals. And even this procedure can be adjusted, for example the mini facelift, SMAS, brow lift, platysmaplasty, lower face or midface lift, to address specific areas of the face. A facelift can be done to address jawline and jowls specifically, which is why it is important to choose an experienced surgeon who has performed many of these procedures for the best possible result. The type of procedure will also determine the size of the incision and the location, e.g. the hairline, earlobe, etc.

Aside from the facelift, eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) and eyelid lift are examples of other procedures that can be used for facial rejuvenation. Eyelid surgery creates natural results by removing excess skin, droopy skin and fat from the eyelids. The procedure can be done on the upper eyelid as well as the lower eyelid.

Sagging skin on the face is one of the most common signs of ageing. For mild cases of excess facial skin, the cosmetic surgeon can use non-surgical rejuvenation procedures to restore a youthful appearance. Laser skin resurfacing, dermabrasion and Dermaneedling are just some of the options to tackle mild cases of loose skin.

Fat grafting is another technique that can be used for rejuvenation purposes. During this procedure, fat is taken from a certain area of the patient’s body. This fat is then treated and injected into an area where fat has been lost due to the natural ageing process. Please note that this procedure is not the same as a treatment with injectable dermal fillers, even though the base principle is the same.

Our photo gallery provides more insight in the various types of rejuvenation treatments and their effects. Please note that these rejuvenation photographs are only illustrative and that results can be unique to the patient.
