This lady had a mini face lift, Liposculpture of the jowls and laser blepharoplasty.

With ageing the jaw line often becomes square as the muscle and skin droops on both cheeks. Dermatologist surgeons and cosmetic dermatologist have varying methods to elevate the sagging skin. Some prefer a deep plane face lift and others the skin suture lift.  Dr Lanzer often recommends the miniface lift. It tightens the muscle and also any excess skin us removed.

The do called Marionette Lines can be seen as a fold below the angle if the mouth. Occasionally a cosmetic filler softens the appearance but sometimes a lift surgery is required.

Dr Lanzer performs the surgery with the patient either awake or asleep.

Patients often combine procedures such as a laser for the skin texture. An olive skin patient usually does not require laser but pigmentation treatment is very common. This is started with fading lotions and peels. Then soften lasers or fractionated treatments may be used. A fractionated laser makes small micro holes into the collagen laser. Dr Lanzer uses a special erbium fractionated laser in olive skin patients. Combining a lift with dermal non invasive therapies may enhance the result and make the result last longer.

When I started performing cosmetic surgery 25 years ago, the general knowledge of the public was very low about how to perform procedures and what could be done. With the advent of internet and many cosmetic surgery shows, most people today, have a fairly good understanding of different procedures. What becomes confusing is that not all procedures are the same and which is the correct procedure to choose.

For instance, many people perform liposuction. However, almost nobody performs the exact same procedure. My approach with liposuction is to use the tumescent fluid technique that was developed by a co-dermatologist and to infiltrate very large volumes of that fluid. I find that it gives me the maximum benefit and allows me to sculpture fat in the most appropriate way. I use devices such as the MicroAire or the Vaser and I am constantly assessing how to sculpture the fat by how the fat flows out, how it feels and how it looks.

There are many ways to treat the face with lasers and mini face lift. Having studied different techniques for the last 2 decades, we have found a technique that is aimed at producing the most maximum result with a natural appearance and the quickest recovery.

A common procedure that I perform is removal of man boobs. The method we use, allows me to remove the entire mass without any major scarring.

There is a lot of interest in non-surgical procedures. These have all improved in time. I find that the Ulthera can help produce a non-surgical face lift and may also help with underarm sweating. The Viva can cause skin refreshing and tightening. The Cool Shapes can help remove fat without the need for surgery.

Because of all the different devices and approaches, it can be confusing. For this reason, I gladly offer my free advice either in person or over the internet.

The many different types of facelifts available today can be confusing for a patient who is looking at solutions to make their face appear younger. There are often other options as well, which includes laser resurfacing and fat transfers. Therefore, it is always best to speak to a surgeon about your expectations and discuss the main cosmetic problems you are facing. During a consultation, Dr Lanzer can lay out your treatment options, after which you can make an informed decision about the most appropriate treatment route to take.

Before you have any kind of surgical procedure at the Dr Lanzer Clinic, you will be required to sign a consent form. This consent form states that you understand the nature of the procedure and the risks accompanied by having this procedure. Patients can also find important information about their facelift procedure in this consent form, which can include how the procedure will be executed and the risks a patient could be exposed to by having this procedure. The patient should only sign this consent form if he or she understands all the information provided in it. If you have further questions about the facelift information on your consent form, or have some concerns about the information it entails, feel free to contact the Dr Lanzer Clinic for assistance.
