What is a Deep Plane Facelift

Cosmetic surgery is a choice that needs a lot of research and when it comes to thinking about a facelift you should look at all the options available to make sure you consult with the right surgeon.

While there are plenty of different types of facelift whether you’re wanting to reduce the signs of ageing or remove an imperfection, here’s a closer look at deep plane facelifts, a newer option being offered by cosmetic surgeons.

What is a Deep Plane Facelift

In brief, a deep plane facelift consists of lifting the skin, tissue and muscles simultaneously which reduces the signs of stretched skin which are commonly visible with a standard facelift.

Benefits of a Deep Plane Facelift

A deep plane facelift doesn’t just reduce superficial wrinkles, it targets the cause by addressing the deeper tissue and ligaments for more defining rejuvenation. Common facelifts last around 5 to 7 years, with a deep plane facelift, results are much longer, averaging between 10 to 15 years.

Deep plane facelifts also offer minimal scarring and are easily hidden and fade very quickly over time. Another benefit is that the recovery is also much better and there is less impact at the skin level with the procedure being performed deeper in the muscle tissue.

Deep Plane versus Other Facelift Options

Yapa plastic surgery specialises in facelifts and other facial procedures and it’s important to know that everyone is different with different expectations. While doing initial research is important, going into your initial consultation with an open mind will help you receive the best treatment. 

Deep plane facelifts do last longer and have many other benefits compared to the alternatives, but you’ll learn much more once you have a consultation with a plastic surgeon.

Procedure & Recovery Time

A deep plane facelift is a fairly long procedure that can typically last between 2 to 5 hours. Both general and local anaesthesia are options discussed with your surgeon and an overnight stay at the clinic might be recommended. 

After your procedure is complete, it can take between 10 to14 days of visible recovery after. Like any surgery, there are risks and side effects including numbness, facial weakness and more, this should always be discussed with your surgeon prior to any commitment.

The Cost

Every surgery will have specific prices catered to your needs, but on average a deep plane facelift can cost about 30%-50% more than a regular facelift. While more expensive the results are much more effective, longer lasting and less invasive on the skin.
