The aim of modern facelifts is to appear as smooth and natural as possible — in fact, the mark of a great facelift is that you can’t see it. One way your cosmetic surgeon can achieve such a natural result is by using an advanced surgical technique called the deep plane facelift. See what sets the deep plane facelift apart from traditional facelift techniques here.
See Superior Results
The deep plane facelift technique lifts the skin and underlying muscle tissue as a single unit at the same time. Traditional facelifts separate these two layers, lifting them individually. One common problem with this approach is that it can result in a “windblown” look if too much tension is placed on the skin. With the deep plane facelift, tension is able to be placed much deeper, creating a softer, more natural final result.
A deep plane facelift can address sagging skin in the mid-face area and neck at the same time.
Enjoy a Simpler Recovery
Because the deep plane facelift does not rely on focusing tension on the skin, this technique typically causes less bruising and swelling than a traditional facelift and also poses less of a risk of scarring after your facelift recovery.
Get Long-Lasting Support
Finally, because the skin and muscle tissue are lifted together in a deep plane facelift, the results using this technique last longer and age more gracefully than those of a traditional facelift.
