Is It True I Could Get a Startled Appearance from a Facelift?
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 and too tight; this may provide a startled appearance. Because of this, there has been a general move towards mini facelifts, which do not pull the skin as much and provide a more natural appearance.
What Is the Goal of the Facelift Treatment?
The goal is to end up with a natural result. Facelift surgery is required when the skin is sagging on the lower cheeks around the jaw line, or if there is drooping and sagging of the neck. By elevating and removing the excessive skin as well as tightening underlying muscle, the face will appear younger. Therefore, the goal is a more defined middle and lower face, as well as the jawline and neck.
What Is New in the World of Facelifts?
One of the biggest breakthroughs in cosmetic surgery has been the tumescent method, developed by an American dermatologist more than twenty years ago. Dr Lanzer helped bring this method to Australia by arranging the first training hands-on convention for cosmetic and Dermatologist surgeons. That method has now been applied to many other procedures, including the mini facelift.
Where Is the Procedure Done?
Dr Lanzer can perform the procedure in Melbourne in his state-of-the-art day surgery, centre or in D’lumière Esthétique centre in Pitt Street Sydney, New South Wales.
How Is the Procedure Performed?
The procedure can be performed either under general anaesthetic or awake under local anaesthetic. Patients have a choice. Some patients prefer either method over the other.
The area 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 twenty years, or he uses it in conjunction with the suture lift. By first performing the liposculpture, long-lasting results can be obtained during the facelift. 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.
