Case Study: Mini Facelift On A 40-Year-Old Patient?

We regularly use pre- and post- operative photographs to illustrate the outcome that can be obtained with various surgical procedures. Patients who are looking to obtain certain procedures, such as the facelift, can refer to these photographs for some examples.

While the photographs displayed in our case studies cannot be seen as the results you will obtain, they can give an indication of the differences to expect. While the results will be unique to you, it can give prospective patients more insight into the treatment.

For more information about a specific treatment, patients can also refer to our information pages. Each of the treatments we provide at The Dr Lanzer Clinic has its own information page on the site. So, patients can check out the additional information pages if you would like more details about a certain treatment.

How Does This Case Study Contribute To Facelift and Facial Rejuvenation Information?

This case study is interesting in the fact that it is not a mini facelift on a 40-year-old patient. In fact, the patient was 76 years old when she came in for the treatment, resulting to a skin age of approximately 40 years old. Instead of looking in her 70s, the patient now almost seems in her early 40s.

Have a look at the photo of this 76-year-old lady, who is now four weeks post-surgery. She has some light make up on. The areas to particularly note are the tremendous amount of lift on her lower face and neck from the mini facelift that Dr Lanzer preformed. If one focused on the neck the amount of wrinkling and looseness, it would fit the skin age of a 90-year-old. The skin age in that area is currently is more like a 40-year-old. Overall, she has probably had a reduction of about twenty years in ageing on her face.

The mini facelift on a 40-year-old patient are relatively rare; this because most patients of this age do not need a treatment with such dramatic results. Instead, they can choose other facelift procedures such as laser rejuvenation and similar treatments. The mini facelift – or a traditional facelift – is rarely executed on a younger patient or anybody of a younger age.

Even though the mini facelift on a 40-year-old patient is relatively rare, it is not impossible. The mini facelift on a 40-year-old patient is an option if the patient has significant sagging of the lower face and possibly laxity of the underlying muscles.

How Did The Mini Facelift Influence The Appearance Of The Patient?

The lower mini facelift worked on lifting the drooping muscles of the lower face and also suturing the muscles around the neck to give a tighter angle. All the excess skin was excised and removed. It is not uncommon to have a little bit of wrinkling behind the ears in patients with so much loose skin. This tends to soften up in time.

She also had an upper and lower lid laser blepharoplasty, which has opened her eyes and improved her vision somewhat. The approach at this point would be to work on the skin texture to improve the skin’s surface and continue sun protection.

The mini facelift has now become one of the most common cosmetic procedures that Dr Lanzer preforms. Patients elect to have mini facelifts when they do now want a full deep face lift and are trying to keep a more natural result. Natural means that they do not look pulled, but rather have an appearance similar to one would look when they stand in front of a mirror and push their skin towards the ear. The usual risks include swelling, bruising and infection. Nerve damage is a low risk as the procedure is performed on the outside of the muscle rather than deep where the nerve plexus exists.
