What Do I Need to Know About Face Lift?
I may end up with a startled appearance.
Many people are concerned that when they have a face lift they’ll have a startled appearance or it will be obvious to other people. A lot of this myth has been created by Hollywood stars and even in Australia some of the TV personalities have had face lifts that are just too strong, too tight and that give a startled appearance. Because of this, there has been a general move towards mini face lifts where they are less invasive and do not pull the skin as much.
The goal is to end up with a natural result. Face lift surgery is required when the skin is sagging on the lower cheeks around the jaw line or that there is drooping and sagging of the neck. By elevating and removing the excessive skin and tightening the muscle. The goal is a much more defined mid and lower face and jaw line and neck.
One of the biggest breakthroughs in cosmetic surgery has been the tumescent method developed by an American dermatologist over 20 years ago. Dr. Lanzer helped bring this method to Australia by arranging the first training hands-on convention for cosmetic and plastic surgeons. That method has now been applied to many other procedures including mini face lift. Dr. Lanzer will first perform a tumescent liposculpture of the neck and jowls. He will also elevate the skin just in front of the ear using the tumescent technique.
WHERE IS THE PROCEDURE DONE?
Dr. Lanzer can perform the procedure in Melbourne in his state-of-the-art day surgery centre or in his centre called Dlumière Esthétique in Pitt Street Sydney, New South Wales.
HOW IS THE PROCEDURE PERFORMED?
The procedure can be performed either under general anesthetic or awake under local anesthetic. Patients have a choice. Some patients prefer either method over the other.
The areas is numbed and prepared using the tumescent technique. Initially, a detailed superficial liposculpture is performed. Dr. Lanzer has been performing liposculpture of the neck as a stand-alone procedure for over 20 years or in conjunction with suture lift. By first performing the liposculpture one gets a very long lasting result with this component of the face lift. Sutures are placed deep in the muscle to tighten the face. Dr. Lanzer does not cut through the muscle to where the deeper plane nerves lie.
