Deep Plane Facelift

Home » Face » Deep Plane Facelift

Introducing the transformative deep plane facelift Manhattan, a breakthrough technique expertly performed by Manhattan’s esteemed board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Karan Mehta. This advanced procedure targets sagging skin and deep tissue concerns, helping you achieve natural, long-lasting rejuvenation with enhanced facial contours and a more youthful appearance.

A Comprehensive Facelift Technique

The deep plane facelift is a sophisticated surgical procedure executed by Dr. Mehta. This technique involves repositioning the deeper facial tissue layers, including muscles and fat, to restore youthful facial contours. By accessing and adjusting the underlying structures, this procedure offers more comprehensive and longer-lasting rejuvenation, addressing issues such as jowls and drooping cheeks. Dr. Mehta’s expertise ensures optimal results while minimizing potential side effects.

Deep Plane Facelift Corrects:

  • Sagging jowls and cheeks
  • Deep facial creases and wrinkles
  • Loss of facial volume
  • Downturned mouth corners
  • Loose neck skin and muscle banding
  • Marionette lines and nasolabial folds
  • Hollowing under the eyes
  • Uneven facial contours
  • Overall facial laxity
  • A tired or aged appearance

Deep Plane Facelift vs. SMAS Facelift

Both the deep plane facelift in Manhattan and SMAS facelift focus on the SMAS layer of facial muscles and connective tissues. However, their methodologies differ. The SMAS facelift involves cutting and suturing the underlying muscles to make the necessary adjustments and tighten skin, which leads to extended downtime. Meanwhile, the deep plane facelift lifts and repositions the tissues as a flap, which may involve less downtime. Dr. Mehta offers both methods, tailoring the technique to your unique anatomy and goals for optimal outcomes.

Candidates for Deep Plane Facelift:

  • Individuals with sagging facial skin and muscle
  • Those with pronounced jowls and drooping cheeks
  • Those seeking comprehensive facial rejuvenation
  • Individuals with realistic expectations
  • Non-smokers or those willing to quit temporarily
  • Those in generally good health for surgery

Deep Plane Facelift Surgical Details

Dr. Mehta performs the deep plane facelift under general or local anesthesia with sedation so you don’t experience discomfort. Dr. Mehta carefully makes incisions in targeted areas under your chin, behind your ears, and along the hairline. These incisions are made in areas where the scars can easily be concealed.

After making incisions, Dr. Mehta delicately lifts and repositions the underlying SMAS layer. Once the deep tissues are adjusted, excess skin is trimmed and sutured in place. The deep plane facelift in Manhattan procedure concludes within an hour or two.

The Recovery Process

Following the deep plane facelift, some swelling, bruising, and mild discomfort are common, but these side effects gradually subside over the first few weeks. You’ll be provided comprehensive guidelines by Dr. Mehta’s team, which you must follow accurately. During the initial days of recovery, you must keep your head elevated and avoid most physical activities. You can resume your daily activities within a week, but avoid strenuous activities for 6 weeks.

Dr. Mehta’s team will provide instructions regarding medication, wound care, and dietary restrictions. You will also have to attend follow-up sessions, during which Dr. Mehta will assess your progress and remove sutures. Patience is key, as the initial results emerge within the first few weeks, revealing a youthful appearance. However, the full effects will appear over several months as the side effects diminish and your facial tissues settle into a refined state.
