Procedure Case Studies – Mini Facelift Photos

Patients considering a mini facelift require more information before having their procedure. The Dr Lanzer Clinic provides prospective patients with all the info they require before they come in for their consultation.

There are many ways to provide information; this includes a selection of mini facelift photos, which are obtained from patients who had their mini facelift at The Dr Lanzer Clinic. You can also find vital information about the mini facelift on various information pages. Below, we have also listed important information every patient must know before going ahead with a mini facelift. So, be sure to read on if you require more info before your consultation.

Which Technique Is Used To Execute This Treatment?

The mini facelift procedure uses the tumescent liposuction technique, which Dr Lanzer brought into Australia in 1992. Tumescent fluid can be used to treat various facial areas during a mini facelift.

Tumescent fluid causes closure of the small blood vessels, so there is almost no bleeding and good visibility of the lax muscles of the cheeks that require tightening by the cosmetic surgery. The fluid is also antibacterial, which reduces risk of infection.

Does The Mini Facelift Require Suture Placement?

Very strong sutures are placed in the muscles of the face and neck. Dr Lanzer analyses the vector of the face to pull the muscle in the direction that gives the most natural and dramatic lift.

The advantage of placing muscle sutures in the neck and face is that the jawline becomes very defined, as can been seen in the above photos. The excess skin is surgically removed, and very fine dissolvable sutures are placed around the ear.

Does A Mini Facelift Leave Any Scars?

With the mini facelift surgical procedure, the scar stops behind or near the ear and does not extend into the hair of the scalp. Also, the undermining and lifting of the facial skin is only in the first five centimetres in front of the ear.

Evidently, the type of scar that will be left after a facelift procedure depends on the incision used by the surgeon. Some lift procedures have smaller incisions, while others could involve larger incisions; this is why it is important to be aware of the various techniques that are currently being used for procedures such as the traditional facelift and the mini facelift.

Patients can experience some side-effects shortly after their treatment; this includes bruising and swelling. Evidently, these side-effects usually dissipate once you have recovered from the surgery.

How Long Do The Results Of A Facelift Last?

It is very hard to predict how long a facelift will last. Everybody ages at a different rate and both genetics and facial movements play a role. The overall recovery time post-facelift can be variable too.

What Should I know About The Case Study And Mini Facelift Photos?

Notice in her mini facelift photos that the downturned (sad) lip edge has been lifted with the facelift procedure. Some patients have very strong facial muscles with deep smiles and this line may return over time. You can view this phenomenon in some of our other mini facelift photos too.

Please note that the lady in this case study had lipstick on when the photographs were taken. Makeup is a very important part of cosmetic facial surgery, as it enhances the results.

As a cosmetic surgery, Dr Lanzer has been performing laser resurfacing for over more than twenty years and many patients complain that makeup enhances wrinkles rather than cover them before surgery. After surgery, it is just the opposite, as the facial rejuvenation procedure will make your skin appear more youthful before you apply makeup. A good selection of makeup with SPF can also protect against sun damage.

How Should I Interpret The Before And After Photographs For The Mini Facelift?

Prospective patients can find a lot of before and after photographs of patients who had their facelift at our clinic on the website. While these examples give you some insight of the natural results that you could expect from a facelift procedure, it is certainly no guarantee that you will obtain the same result.

As a patient, it is important to realise that your body and face are unique; this also means that the results you will obtain from a cosmetic procedure will be unique too. Therefore, it is impossible for a patient to determine their result based on before and after photographs on the internet.

To get a better picture of the effect a facial rejuvenation treatment might have on your appearance, it is always best to consult your cosmetic surgery. Most cosmetic surgerys have special software available that enables them to show you how your face will look after a certain procedure is performed. Even though this is still an estimate, it does give patients better insight into the possibilities of their treatment. So, if you would like more detailed information about a facelift procedure you are considering, be sure to make an appointment with your cosmetic surgery to obtain the appropriate information.

You can always contact The Dr Lanzer Clinic to acquire more information about various treatments that provide facial rejuvenation; this includes procedures such as the endoscopic brow lift, mini facelift, fat transfer, facelift surgery, and other cosmetic surgery that could take place on the face and neck and reverse some signs of the ageing process.
