Facelift Case Study: Before and After Photographs

At The Dr Lanzer Clinic, we regularly use pre- and post- operative photographs to illustrate the results that can be obtained with certain 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 available at The Dr Lanzer Clinic website has its own information page. So, be sure to check out the additional information pages if you would like more details about a certain treatment.

What Can You Tell Me About this Facelift Case Study?

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.

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 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.
