Begin Again: Revision Facelift

by | Jan 28, 2024 | Blog, Facelift

The Deep Plane Face and Neck Lift has become the procedure of choice for facial rejuvenation. I have been performing this procedure for twelve years and understand the nuances.

Original work

Most of my patients are those who come to me for their original facelift and neck lift procedure. They understand that the Deep Plane Face and Neck Lift is superior to other methods of facelifting and requires a highly skilled surgeon to perform it.

They also appreciate that undergoing elective facial plastic surgery is a personal choice, one not to be rushed or coerced into. They have assessed risks and recovery protocols, had their questions answered, and feel that I understand what their desired outcome is.

Since I introduced the Deep Plane Face and Neck lift to Australia over a decade ago, I have performed this procedure on hundreds of patients. The beauty of this approach is that you are very unlikely to be able to tell if a person has had a procedure at all. There is nothing distorted or un-natural looking, as the patient’s own ligaments are re-tensioned and repositioned. Excess, saggy skin, loose jowls, and a lack of definition in the facial contours are addressed in a way that leaves no “pulled” look.

After a successful procedure, the person looks like themselves, only younger and more refreshed.

Not happy

 I’m now well known for performing the Deep Plane Face and Neck Lift and training other highly skilled surgeons in this approach.

Patients who have had unsatisfactory outcomes from facelifts performed elsewhere now also ask me what can be done.

Before and three weeks after Revision Deep Plane Face and Neck Lift

Some of the areas that they are not happy with, from procedures performed elsewhere include:

  • An overly “pulled” look
  • Visible scarring
  • Irregular pleating
  • Irregular bumps

A revision facelift and neck-lift procedure may be possible.

Improved!

To perform the Deep Plane Face and Neck Lift you must have an advanced understanding of facial anatomy and technical expertise.

With this knowledge and experience, it’s sometimes possible to make the corrections of poorly performed work.

This patient presented with irregular bumps in her neck and under her jawline – the platysma muscle was still hanging down in the midline and there was visible scarring around the ears. There was an inadequate lift with redundant loose tissue of the neck and jawline as well as posterior pleating.

The photos show her before and three weeks after Revision Deep Plane Face and Neck Lift.

Note the defined jawline and neck contour. There is no pulled look or redundant neck tissue.

Your happiness

Having a facelift or any kind of facial plastic surgery is a big decision – time, money and trust are all involved.

When things don’t work out as you anticipate, it can cause distress.

It’s important to research and exercise due diligence. What may seem like a “quick fix”, or “bargain” could turn out to be costly. Your face is worthy of your deepest attention.
