WHAT IS THE TURKEY NECK?
The turkey neck is a term that has been given for patients who have a sagging heavy neck as one would see classically in the turkey animal. This gives a fairly characteristic appearance to the face which is certainly unpopular and can be corrected with a liposculpture followed by a neck lift.
HOW MANY STITCHES DOES ONE HAVE IN A MINI FACELIFT?
There are approximately 6-10 reinforced deep strong sutures in the muscle of the face and neck on each side of the face with a mini facelift. Once the skin is brought together, there are many fine sutures that are placed in front of the ear to keep the wound tight and sealed.
WHEN CAN ONE SWIM AFTER A FACELIFT?
Generally, Dr. Lanzer would advise to avoid strenuous exercise for a period of 3 weeks.

HOW OFTEN IS ONE SEEN BY DR. LANZER AFTER A MINI FACELIFT?
Dr. Lanzer is a very hands-on surgeon and he likes to monitor and take close care of his patients. He would normally see you after a mini facelift on the next day, after a couple of days, and 1-2 weeks following the surgery. He would then want to see every few months just to check on how things are going. Dr. Lanzer always accepts and responds to emails or SMS messages as he likes to be in total control during the aftercare period.
DOES THE RESULTS OF FACELIFT SURGERY CHANGE IF ONE LOSES WEIGHT?
Weight change can affect the amount of fat that one carries on the face and neck and this may affect the results. If one is expecting to gain or lose weight then this is something that should be discussed with Dr. Lanzer.
DO I HAVE TO STOP SMOKING?
