Facelift surgery offers the opportunity to turn back time and restore a more youthful facial appearance. The traditional facelift uses incisions behind and around the ear to tighten and remove sagging skin from the jowls, upper neck and lower face. Unfortunately, only tightening the skin can create an unnatural look, as the tissues underneath are not changed. The deep plane facelift addresses this issue and creates a more natural facial rejuvenation. Here are five advantages to a deep plane versus traditional facelift surgery.
1. Repositioning the Facial Muscle Structure
Deep plane facelifts include a full ligamentous and muscle release technique to allow the soft tissues to be resuspended at a more youthful position. The tissue and skin are elevated, not only the skin.
2. Less Tension on the Incision
When the muscle layer is not elevated with the skin, it can pull on the facelift incisions. Resuspending the muscle with the skin puts less tension on the incision to allow it to heal quicker and with less scarring.
3. More Natural-Appearing Outcomes
A deep plane facelift looks more natural, especially when performed by a highly skilled facial plastic surgeon like Dr. Eric Cerrati. Unlike traditional facelift results that can make the patient’s skin look stretched and unnatural, the deep plane method truly rejuvenates the facial appearance.
4. Longer Lasting Results
When only the skin is tightened, the results may dissipate quickly. The muscle structure can pull the skin and sagging can occur in a short period of time after the procedure. Deep plane facelifts performed by Dr. Cerrati can have results that last 10 or more years, slowing the aging process.
5. Quicker Recovery
Dr. Cerrati uses innovative techniques with his deep plane facelifts that allow for faster healing and a quicker recovery. Patients can enjoy a shortened period of downtime after the surgery, usually 5-7 days.
