The deep plane facelift procedure uses specialized techniques that make it a little bit different from a traditional facelift. Deep plane surgeries are designed to lift the whole face, not just the bottom third. The procedure will address sagging skin and other aging concerns in the jaw, neck, chin, and cheekbones as the deep soft tissues are gently lifted and sutured into place. What’s more, a deep plane facelift is not considered a “major” surgery and requires less downtime and recovery time afterwards. Only a few highly skilled facial plastic surgeons are trained in this technique, including those at the Glasgold Group. Because of this, the procedure is harder to find and sometimes plagued by myths and misinformation.
Myth #1 – Deep Plane Facelift Results Aren’t Obvious
With such a dramatic sounding name as deep plane facelift, it’s easy to see why many would-be patients mistake this effective procedure for one that will leave obvious surgical evidence behind. With a deep plane facelift, your incisions will be strategically placed in well-hidden spots, like the hairline or natural creases in the skin. You also won’t experience that “pulled” look that some patients fear. The deep plane facelift works at a deeper level, lifting the underlying soft tissue and laying the skin more firmly over it for a natural-looking end result. While many people may comment on how youthful and refreshed you look, they’ll be struggling to figure out what you’ve done differently.
Myth #2 – Only Celebrities Get Deep Plane Facelifts
Perhaps because they are performed by a select few facial plastic surgeons across the country, it’s a common mistake to assume that normal, everyday people aren’t granted access to this procedure. This simply isn’t true. Most facelift patients are regular men and women on budgets who can’t travel far for surgery but still want top-notch results. If you’re fortunate to live nearby one such surgeon, book a consultation to get some more information about the deep place facelift and whom it’s for.
Myth #3 – A Deep Plane Facelift Doesn’t Do Anything Extra
With traditional facelift techniques, the treatment area becomes quite limited as the surgeon focuses on tightening the skin and supporting tissues of the lower face. While the end results turns out just fine most of the time, traditional surgeries don’t address all of the potential issues a patient may have. When there are also sagging and drooping signs in the midface area around the cheeks, a deep plane facelift is the better choice. The vertical lift technique used for a deep plane lift, all the way from the jaw and on up, can greatly affect the quality of your results. The deep plane facelift definitely takes this surgery to a new level.
Myth #4 – Better Results Means Longer Recovery
Again, the deep plane facelift sounds like a really involved and complicated surgery with a long recovery time. Just the opposite is actually true, since it is far less painful and requires shorter downtime than a traditional facelift. Why? The deeper tissues tightened in a deep plane facelift are faster healers than the tissue tightened in a traditional facelift. In fact, the whole face is adjusted evenly to provide natural looking results with “pulling” the skin. Without extreme tension in the skin, the incisions can heal very quickly and your risk for future scars is greatly reduced.
