Other case studies

By posting before and after photographs for prospective patients, potential patients can view common aesthetic problems with the face, such as the so-called sad mouth. The photographs also display how certain cosmetic procedures could correct these aesthetic problems.

The case study displayed on this page shows a patient who suffers from sad mouth. If you want to learn more about this problem, and how cosmetic surgery could correct it, please read the information provided below.

What Is Sad Mouth?

Some people tell me that people comment that they look sad. What makes people look sad is often the down-turning of the mouth, or the sagging of the lower cheeks. In this before photo, one can see a shadow that hits from the corner of the mouth down; this is due to a combination of loss of volume and drooping of the upper face. Unfortunately, this is often caused by having a nice deep smile and it works against the patient’s long term cosmetic result.

What Are the Causes of a Sad Looking Mouth?

One could be a down turn of the edges of the mouth. Secondly, would be very thin lips. Thirdly, would be wrinkles, more specifically vertical lines on the upper lip.

What Is the Treatment for a Sad Looking Mouth?

The treatment for a sad looking mouth may involve a mini face lift, injection of fillers around the mouth, or laser resurfacing for the skin texture. The solution that will be recommended by the cosmetic surgery does depend on the severity of the problem.

Some patients need as little as laser resurfacing to correct a sad mouth aesthetic. However, other cases could be severe and may require a mini facelift. To determine the best solution for your situation, it is recommended to speak to Dr Lanzer during a consultation. Based on an evaluation, he can put forward a recommended treatment plan.

How Long Would It Take to Get a Result?

Sometimes from the lips, the results can be almost immediate once the swelling and bruising go down. Of course, each patient heals in his or her own time; this could mean it takes a little longer for some patients to see the results.

How Will This Change My Age Appearance?

Based on the photographs posted by the Dr Lanzer Clinic, you can see a clear difference between the before and after photograph where age is concerned. In the first photograph, the patient appears as someone in their late 50s to 60s. However, the after photographs shows the same patient who appears to be in her early 40s or late 30s. As you can imagine, the results from this procedure can often be quite dramatic.

What Procedures Can Be Combined with a Facelift?

Sometimes we will combine skin textural treatments with the facelift. In this case, the lady is going to have Viva full skin rejuvenation and is still having fillers and muscle relaxants for lines around the face. Skin rejuvenation makes the skin smoother and tighter.

One of the most recent devices that proves quite popular for rejuvenation in combination with the facelift is the Viva. The Viva is a radio frequency fractionated device, which delivers a rejuvenating treatment for the skin.

There are more options available for patients who want to combine the facelift with another rejuvenating treatment. If you are unsure about the treatments that could provide you with the most benefit, please book an appointment with Dr Lanzer at his clinic to discuss your options.
