Facelift surgery, known clinically as Rhytidectomy, is a process to reduce facial wrinkles and other signs of aging on the face. The object of this procedure is to improve the appearance of the jawline and face. This surgery is performed by a plastic surgeon to lift and tighten the muscles of the face to improve its contours and compliment the entire facial structure.

Excess fat is removed that contribute towards an aged and tired appearance. A successful surgery will give the patient a younger looking natural face with minimal post-surgical marks. There are several types of surgical techniques available. Some of them are:

• Deep plane lift
• SMAS lift
• Short scar lift
• Endoscopic facelift
• Mid cheek lift

Deep Plane Facelift

The Deep plane facelift involves the invasive surgery of skin just under the muscle and skin. The procedure allows surgeons to undo the apparent signs of aging of the neck and face areas. This results in a tighter jawline and an accentuated cheek and neck.

It involves the lifting and repositioning of the tissues of the muscles that control smiling and frowning. A small incision is made around the hairline of the face and the tissues being realigned.

With this surgery, tissues around the problem areas are lifted up and are fixed more permanently. The result is dramatic and is the best choice for people who face severe sagging and aging. A successful surgery will see that results last from 10 to 15 years.

The Advantages of a Deep Plane Facelift

Although the definition varies from surgeon to surgeon, it is universally known as one of the most advanced techniques. The results are more natural looking and durable than traditional procedures.

The deep plane facelift is known to improve nasolabial folds, cheeks, and the under eyes more than any other surgical technique. It holds a particular edge over the mid-face facelifts. Longer lasting results are another huge advantage. Due to its invasive nature, surface bruising is minimal. Patients also suffer less bleeding with this procedure.

The best part is there are no obvious tell-tale signs of surgery. Patients look younger and refreshed with signs that a surgery has taken place. The results look natural and any resulting post-surgical marks are well-hidden by the doctor.

Superficial skin tightening only offers a surface look, while Deep plane facelift addresses the root of the problem. The surgery is painless and is superior to other types of facelift surgeries.

Good Candidates for the Deep Plane Facelift

A deep plane facelift is one of the best facelift techniques available for those who want to improve their facial aesthetic. Before deciding on the surgery, careful consideration must be given about the surgeon performing it.

Before and after sample photos must be examined before taking the plunge. The process offers the same risk element as any other surgery. Despite having no serious complications, the procedure takes a little longer to heal.

You will need to be in good general health and ready to provide your doctor with your medical history. You can also discuss your goals and your doctor will give you a good idea of what to expect after the procedure.
