Case Study: Mini Face Lift Procedure Before And After Photos

The mini face lift procedure uses the tumescent liposuction technique which Dr Lanzer brought in to Australia in 1992.  Firstly by preparing the fat on the neck and jowls for suction, and secondly for preparing the front of the outer cheeks for the mini facelift  procedure muscle tightening.  The 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 need tightening. 

The fluid is also antibacterial which reduces risk of infection.  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.  With the Mini Face Lift procedure the scar stops behind or near the ear and does not extend in to the scalp hair.  Also the undermining and lifting of the facial skin is only in the first 5cm in front of the ear.  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.

Also notice in her photo that the down turned (sad) lip edge has been lifted with the face lift.  Some patients have very strong facial muscles with deep smiles and this line may return in i.

PLEASE NOT THIS LADY HAS LIPSTICK ON IN HER POST PHOTOS – Makeup is a very important part of cosmetic facial surgery as it enhances the results.  Dr Lanzer has been performing laser resurfacing for over 20 years and many patients complain that makeup enhances wrinkles rather than cover them before surgery.  After surgery it is just the opposite and it will also protect the skin from further sun damage.

On the Dr Lanzer Clinic website, prospective patients can find a lot of before and after photographs of patients who had their facelift at our clinic. While these examples give you some insight of what 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 is 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 facelift might have on your appearance, it is always best to speak to a cosmetic surgeon. Most cosmetic surgeons have special software available that enables them to show you how your face will look when a certain procedure is performed. Even though this is still an estimate, it does give patients a better view of 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 surgeon to obtain the appropriate information.
