When it comes to facial aging, there is no surgical procedure more sought after than the facelift. This surgical intervention is an effective way to address everything from sagging skin and jowls to fine lines and wrinkles, restoring youthfulness to the face.
While the traditional, or ‘full,’ facelift is the industry standard, new developments in technology have led to the creation of alternative iterations of this procedure. A deep plane facelift can achieve all the benefits of a full facelift and then some. A deep plane facelift involves the release of ligaments and the repositioning of tissues beneath the SMAS layer and the platysma muscle. This creates a more youthful aesthetic without pulling the skin too tightly.
