Sydney plastic surgeon Dr Jeremy Hunt explains more about a deep plane facelift and its benefits.
If you have been researching different facelift techniques then you have probably heard of the term ‘deep plane facelift’, but do you know what this actually means or entails?
Facelifts can be performed at different depths ranging from skin only to SMAS, more commonly known as the “deeper plane”.
A deep plane facelift is potentially the most powerful option when it comes to facelift surgery, and often has the most natural, rejuvenated look and the longest lasting results.
This technique has become increasingly more accepted as it has been shown to have minimum downtime with potentially less complications than the other techniques.
For Dr Hunt a deep plane facelift is his preferred choice for facial rejuvenation as it provides a more youthful look without the appearance of having undergone a facelift.
A deep plane facelift is achieved by operating below the SMAS level. This allows maximum elevation of the fat pads, with minimum tension on the skin resulting in finer scars and minimum downtime.
The deep plane facelift can be combined with other facial procedures such as a platysmaplasty, more commonly known as a neck lift, eyelid surgery in the form of an upper or lower blepharoplasty and brow surgery in the form of a brow lift.
In Dr Hunt’s experience patients do not want to change the appearance of their faces, instead they want to rejuvenate their look and a deep plane facelift is perfect to achieve this result.
