If you are considering a facelift but are worried about looking “overdone” or unnatural, consider the facelift of the 21st century.
The Deep Plane Facelift procedure is unique in that it adjusts and improves the structures below the skin and tissue, including deep muscles and ligaments that can cause laxity and a sunken or hollow appearance. Since the skin is not getting pulled independently, a too-tight look is avoided, and only outstanding, age-defying facial renewal is the result.
Contoura Facial Plastic Surgery is superior because the face is the focus. Dr. Roberto Garcia and the team in Jacksonville, FL, pride themselves on offering the highest-quality, safest, most effective aesthetic facial procedures and treatments available. Undergoing a Deep Plane Facelift can be exciting as well as a bit daunting. With exceptional patient care, we will help walk you through the process from consultation to follow-up.
In the face, there is an anatomic plane that sits between the SMAS-platysma muscle, fascia and the deeper muscles which provide movement and expression.
This “deep plane” is integral in the aging process, so addressing this level during a Deep Plane Facelift provides more substantial, comprehensive results. Other methods may only focus on pulling skin and tissue that can give patients a tight, harsh appearance. Working with the deep muscles and fascia in the face means this surgery can address multiple aging concerns with a natural-looking outcome.
Both of these procedures can provide a more youthful appearance; however, tension is the key when discussing the differences between a traditional and a Deep Plane Facelift. During a traditional facelift, the skin and the tissues are repositioned separately, which is what can produce a too-tight end result if tension is not balanced between the layers. A Deep Plane Facelift works with the underlying structures and repositions the skin and tissues together, so the tension is evenly distributed.
Looking in the mirror every day and feeling confident and youthful can be a game changer for every facet of your life, whether personal, professional, or relational. If you want to see positive change with facial rejuvenation, a Deep Plane Facelift may be the technique you’ve been waiting for. Enjoy benefits that include:
This procedure is effective for a variety of facial aging concerns, and almost anyone looking to correct all or some of these issues is a great candidate for a Deep Plane Facelift. Those who are in overall good health, are at or near their goal weight, and understand the nature of the procedure and what it treats are ideal candidates. Both men and women can improve these signs of aging:
At a consultation for a Deep Plane facelift Jacksonville facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Garcia will take the time to get to know you and your ultimate aesthetic goals. We will also design a customized treatment plan to ensure that your procedure and recovery go as smoothly as possible. We may request lab tests or other medical evaluations to make sure there are no safety concerns prior to surgery. You will also be asked to quit smoking for several months prior to the procedure to ensure optimal healing.
Deep Plane Facelifts are generally performed under general anesthesia in an outpatient setting. Dr. Garcia will make incisions and adjustments based on your predetermined surgical plan. After the adjustments to the facial structures are made, they will be repositioned, and sutures will be used. Usually, this surgery lasts around 1.5 to 2 hours.
Since this procedure is performed under general anesthesia, you will feel drowsy afterward and will need someone to drive you home and assist you for about the first 24 hours. The more you rest, the more effectively you will heal, and the better your results will be. Detailed care and recovery instructions will be provided during your pre-op appointment. Outstanding results are usually apparent within 4-6 months.
