Salmon Creek Plastic Surgery now provides a new facelift technique called a deep plane facelift and neck lift.

What is a Deep Plane Facelift?

A deep plane facelift aims to address the signs of aging in the lower face and neck. It is a more advanced technique compared to traditional facelift procedures. It involves repositioning not only the skin but also the underlying muscles and tissues.

During a deep plane facelift, the SCPS surgeon makes incisions in the hairline and around the ears. This allows us to access deeper tissues of the face. They then lift and reposition the muscles and tissues, creating a more natural and long-lasting result. This technique allows for a more comprehensive rejuvenation of the face. It targets sagging skin, jowls, and deep wrinkles.

Who is a Good Candidate for It?

You’re a good candidate if you exhibit significant signs of aging in the lower face and neck area. This procedure is typically recommended for individuals who have sagging skin, deep folds, and jowls that cannot be effectively addressed with non-surgical treatments.

Additionally, candidates for a deep plane facelift should be in good overall health and have realistic expectations about the outcome of the procedure.

What Are the Advantages of a Deep Plane Facelift Over Other Types?

There are several major advantages that a deep plane facelift offers versus other, traditional facelift procedures.

For one, it provides more natural and long-lasting results compared to other techniques. The deep plane facelift targets the deeper tissues of the face, which allows for a more comprehensive lifting and repositioning of the facial tissues. This results in a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance that can last for many years.

The deep plane facelift also has a lower risk of complications and a shorter recovery time compared to other types of facelifts. The technique is performed with meticulous precision, minimizing the risk of nerve damage and other potential side effects.

Overall, the deep plane facelift offers superior results and a safer surgical experience, making it a preferred choice for many individuals seeking facial rejuvenation.

How Long is Recovery Time?

The recovery time for a deep plane facelift can vary depending on the individual and the extent of the procedure.

Generally, it can take anywhere from two to four weeks for the initial recovery phase. Bruising, swelling and some discomfort can be common during this time.

It is important to follow all post-operative instructions provided by the SCPS surgeon. It is also essential to attend follow-up appointments to monitor the healing process.

While visible bruising and swelling may subside after a few weeks, it may take several months for the final results to fully manifest as the tissues continue to settle and heal.

How Long Does a Deep Plane Facelift and Neck lift Last?

The longevity of a deep plane facelift and neck lift can vary. Factors such as individual genetics, lifestyle choices, and the overall aging process all play roles. Generally, these procedures are considered to have long-lasting results compared to other facelift techniques.

The deep plane facelift and neck lift address the underlying structures of the face and neck. This provides a more comprehensive and natural-looking rejuvenation. The exact duration of the results depends on you, the patient. However, it is common for patients to enjoy the benefits of a deep plane facelift and neck lift for 10-15 years or even longer.

However, it is important to note that the aging process will continue. Additional maintenance procedures or non-surgical treatments may be desired to maintain the desired results over time. Consulting with a board-certified plastic surgeon can provide a more personalized assessment and recommendation for each individual.

What Are the Risks?

A deep plane facelift is a surgical procedure and, like any surgery, it carries certain risks. These risks include infection, bleeding, scarring, and nerve damage. It is important that you choose an experienced, qualified surgeon to minimize these risks. After all, we want you to have the best possible outcome.

What is the Cost of a Deep Plane Facelift?

The cost of a deep plane facelift can vary. Each patient is unique and presents different factors, including how extensive the procedure needs to be and any additional treatments or services you might need.  It is important to note that when you are comparing costs of procedures make sure that you factor in additional expenses such as anesthesia fees, hospital or surgical facility costs (we have our own in-house surgery center), post-operative medications, and follow-up visits.
