Aging can cause our skin to sag and fine lines and wrinkles to develop. Many people look to facelifts to help look and feel younger. If you want natural-looking results, a deep plane facelift is an ideal long-lasting solution for a youthful appearance. Here’s everything you need to know about a deep plane facelift and how it can benefit you.

What is a Deep Plane Facelift?

A deep plane facelift helps improve sagging cheeks, hanging jowls and skin folds around the mouth. The technique delivers longer lasting and more effective results than a traditional facelift. It repositions the tissues underneath the supportive layer of the face instead of pulling the skin tight like a traditional facelift. Muscles and fat layers are released and moved as one large unit. The results can last 10 years or more.

A deep plane facelift is one of the most invasive cosmetic procedures. Patients are given anesthesia while the work is being performed. The recovery period can last a few weeks. Results can be seen immediately but will improve as the body heals.

Deep Plane Facelift Benefits

A deep plane facelift provides numerous benefits. There is less skin trauma because tissues aren’t being pulled in several directions as with traditional facelifts. Since the whole face can be lifted, there is greater definition to the jawline, neck and cheekbones. Patients who receive a deep plane facelift are less likely to need revision procedures. The results are more natural than traditional facelifts and there’s less chance of scarring.

A deep plane facelift can redistribute fat and restore volume to your cheeks to improve facial appearance. Skin can become smoother due to a boost in circulation. Eye drooping can also be corrected with a deep plane facelift. This procedure can enhance your self-image and confidence. Incisions are almost invisible and heal fast. The final result makes it difficult to tell that any work was performed after the recovery process.

Candidates for Deep Plane Facelifts

A deep plane facelift is ideal for men and women who are frustrated with signs of aging. This procedure is commonly performed on middle-aged and older adults starting to experience facial volume loss. A good candidate for a deep plane facelift will be in good overall health and a non-smoker. Smoking can slow down the body’s ability to heal and may interfere with achieving optimal results.

Scheduling a consultation with a qualified cosmetic surgeon will help you determine if a deep plane facelift is right for you. The surgeon will review any current medical conditions and answer any questions you may have. As with any procedure, there are risks that the doctor can discuss with you. It’s important to be committed to the doctor’s instructions before and after surgery to achieve the desired results. In the event you don’t qualify for a facelift, there may be other cosmetic procedures that may be beneficial to you.

I haven't the opportunity to meet the doctor yet, I have an appointment. I was referred by an ENT doctor in NJ, Dr. Douglas Leventhal, nice, young, excellent bed manners. Unfortunately he does not reconstruction nasal perforation, but he was very interested in helping me, and he referred me to a colleague in NY, and asked me wait a call from them, otherwise to call him back if they didn't contact me. Thanks GOD, they are very efficient and received, today two calls , I finally got to talk to Evelyn, very kind, and patient, gave me the appointment, I hope that my present health problem due to bad medical practice years ago, Dr. Rossenberg, can reconstruct my septum. I thank you from deep of my heart.
