There are several facelift techniques used today, with the most advanced being the deep plane method. While this technique requires the most technical skill and surgical knowledge, it can also reap the biggest rewards.
When in the hands of an experienced and highly trained cosmetic surgeon, the deep plane facelift can offer these amazing advantages.
No Worries of a “Windblown” LookOne of the biggest benefits of the deep plane facelift is that it does not focus on merely pulling the skin tight on the surface, like older facelift techniques. Instead, the deep plane method lifts the skin and underlying muscle tissue together, creating a much smoother and more natural final look.
The deep plane technique lifts the entire midface area from your cheek to your neck as a single unit, avoiding a windblown appearance.
Enjoy Better Results, Longer
Not only can the deep plane facelift offer better overall results than traditional facelift procedures, but this advanced technique also lends itself to longer-lasting outcomes. Because the skin and muscle tissue are lifted together, deep plane facelift results tend to age more gracefully than traditional facelifts that only pull the skin tight.
Expect an Easier Recovery
Generally speaking, you can expect less bruising and swelling after a deep plane facelift than with other common facelift techniques, making recovery more streamlined. Additionally, scars are typically less noticeable using the deep plane technique.
