What is a Deep Plane Facelift?

The Deep Plane Facelift for a Refined Look

A Deep Plane Facelift is a cosmetic surgical procedure that addresses the signs of aging in the lower face and neck. Unlike traditional facelifts, the Deep Plane Facelift releases and lifts the deeper facial tissues called the superficial musculoaponeurotic system (SMAS) layer, providing a more comprehensive and long-lasting rejuvenation.

What sets this apart from other techniques is the dissection and release underneath the SMAS while keeping the SMAS and skin attached together so that tension is avoided on the skin and a more powerful lift is obtained without “over-pulling” the skin.

What is the Deep Plane Facelift procedure like?

During your Deep Plane Facelift consultation at PURE Cosmetic Center, Dr. Lee will discuss your goals and assess your candidacy for facial plastic surgery. He will explain the Deep Plane Facelift technique in detail, answer your questions, and develop a personalized treatment plan.

What conditions does a Deep Plane Facelift Surgery address?

A Timeless Composition for Your Face and Neck

A Deep Plane Facelift effectively addresses a range of visible signs of aging in the lower face and neck:

Sagging skin: The procedure lifts and tightens loose skin on the cheeks, jowls, and neck, creating a more youthful contour.

Deep wrinkles and folds: By addressing deeper facial tissues, the Deep Plane Facelift reduces and softens the deep creases around the nose and mouth, called the nasolabial folds, for younger-looking, smoother contour.

Loss of facial definition: The Deep Plane technique restores volume and definition to the jawline, reducing the appearance of jowls and creating a more sculpted profile.

Excess neck skin: The procedure removes excess skin and tightens underlying neck muscles, resulting in a smoother and more youthful neck appearance.

Deep Plane Facelift FAQs

The cost of a Deep Plane Facelift can vary depending on several factors, including the extent of the procedure, anesthesia fees, and facility costs. During your consultation, Dr. Lee will provide you with a personalized quote.

Yes, a Deep Plane Facelift is typically performed under general anesthesia for your comfort and safety. Dr. Lee will discuss your anesthesia options during your consultation.

The results of a Deep Plane Facelift typically last for 10-15 years with proper skincare, maintenance, and a healthy lifestyle. While aging will continue, the procedure addresses deeper structural tissues, providing a longer-lasting correction compared to other surgical techniques.

Maintaining a healthy weight, practicing sun protection, and following a good skincare routine can all help you maximize and extend the results of your Deep Plane Facelift. Additional procedures can be helpful to combine with a Deep Plane Facelift, including facial fat transfer, laser skin resurfacing, and other surgical procedures such as eyelid lifts, brow lifts, chin augmentation, and rhinoplasty. Dr. Lee will provide you with specific post-operative instructions to ensure optimal healing and long-lasting results.

A skin-only facelift tightens only the skin and does not address the deeper tissues. This often has an “over-pulled” effect, resulting in widened scars.

A SMAS Plication Facelift uses stitches to tighten the deeper layer but does not actually dissect under it. This results in less release of the underlying ligaments and thus does not obtain as powerful of an effect.

A SMASectomy Facelift cuts a strip of the deeper tissues out and stitches the ends together. The deeper layer is also not released in this technique, so the pull is not as effective.

A Bi-Lamellar SMAS Facelift does lift up the deeper tissues, but it does not lift it as far forward towards the nasolabial crease. It also separates the skin and the deeper layer by addressing the SMAS and the skin separately.

A Deep Plane Facelift dissects underneath the deep layer and releases the deeper layer further forward towards the nasolabial crease. It also keeps the skin and deep tissue together by preserving the connective tissues between the two layers, helping maximize the results while minimizing complications.
