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. Alternatively, the patient can also request more information about facelifts by filling in the contact form on the website.
