Deep Plane Facelift is a surgical procedure that addresses a regular facelift but goes even deeper by lifting the whole face and repositioning deep tissue layers. It lifts the mid face to highlight the cheekbones, jawline and neck areas. The results are long-lasting with little to no evidence that a facelift has been performed by a plastic surgeon.
A deep plane facelift Rancho Mirage can be performed under general or local anesthesia. Your surgeon will usually make an incision near or in your hairline to access your skin and muscle tissue that needs to be reshaped and tightened up.
The next step involves separating your skin from the underlying tissue and lift cheeks, jowls and neck tissues. It will allow the sagging tissue to conform to your bone once again. The excess skin is taken out at the incision sites before closing the incisions with sutures. Your face may be wrapped in a soft type of dressing that applies pressure against bruising and swelling. Most patients return home the same day as their surgery to recover at home.
There is no set age for a deep plane facelift but the majority of patients are in their 50’s and older. Some are in their 30’s & 40’s; it all depends on their circumstances and personal aging signs. You should be in good physical health, a non-smoker and unsatisfied with aging in your face. It’s important to have realistic expectations that the procedure alone will not solve every problem. But it will certainly enhance your life.
Let your surgeon know if you have past surgical procedures, including prior facelifts, and any non-invasive treatments like Sculptra applied to your face. Also, list all of your medical conditions and the medications that you take. This allows the surgeon to customize a treatment plan that best fits your needs.
Deep plane facelift is considered safe but can include some risks, including bleeding, bruising, facial asymmetry, facial nerve damage, infection and swelling. Let your surgeon know if there are any complications after your surgery in Palm Springs.
If you do have a scar from your deep plane facelift, it will barely be noticeable. Most scars heal where it is minimally or not visible at all. Due to the fact that the procedure does not pull on the incision lines once they are closed up, it allows for effective healing.
You will probably experience some discomfort after your procedure and expect your full recovery to take several weeks.
You will likely be wrapped in a soft type of dressing for a day or two to help decrease the swelling. Your sutures are removed a week or so after your procedure. You may have some redness and swelling as you heal. Some people heal faster than others. Most patients return to work, resume their daily activities such as exercises and feel comfortable to be seen in public after one to two weeks. At home, you can help reduce swelling by using cold compresses and keeping your head elevated.
