What Makes a Deep-Plane Facelift Different?

Published on March 7, 2019

Modern technological advancements have made cosmetic facial improvements easier and safer, and facelifts are no exception. People have become more and more inclined to get facelifts to restore youthfulness to their faces.

Anybody considering a facelift has a range of facelift procedures to choose from. It’s best to find out more about your options before you commit to the surgery. The deep-plane facelift is among the most preferred cosmetic surgical techniques.

The deep-plane facelift allows Dr. Feng increased access to the neck and jaw area, making it easier to treat the sagging skin around the face as well as the neck. Dr. Feng can tackle the problem areas more effectively, resulting in a more lifted face.

The deep-plane facelift is also excellent for treating the mid-face area. This facelift option can give patients more accentuated cheekbones and a better-defined jawline. Individuals who struggle with stubborn signs of aging prefer the deep-plane facelift technique for this very purpose.

Additionally, the results of a deep-plane facelift are longer-lasting. Unlike certain other facelift techniques, a deep-plane facelift does not make your face look unnatural or overdone. The results are subtle and understated yet incredibly effective. After surgery, the face looks as natural as it did before, only younger, fresher, and more relaxed.

Traditional facelift procedures are unable to address the underlying signs of aging that lie deeper under the layers of the skin. Deep-plane facelift surgery enables Dr. Feng to correct these problems at the root by treating the deeper tissues. This technique lifts the deep plane, which lies between the SMAS layer and the facial muscles.

People who have a deep-plane facelift performed are less likely to require a “tuck up,” or revision, procedure than those who have other facelift techniques performed.

Are You a Good Candidate for the Deep-Plane Facelift?

Facelifts are generally performed on individuals between the ages of 50 and 60. There have been cases of younger and older people having them performed, too. If you’re a healthy and active person without any overarching health complaints and are unhappy with your aging appearance, the deep-plane facelift should be right for you.

During a consultation with Dr. Feng, the patient should disclose whether they’ve had any prior cosmetic surgeries or non-invasive cosmetic treatments done. Any medication they take, their medical history, and any tobacco usage should be honestly discussed so that Dr. Feng can devise a personalized treatment plan with these in mind.
