Deep Plane Face and Neck Lift (In the Know)

by | Apr 21, 2021 | Blog

If you’ve connected with me on Instagram you’ll have seen photos of patients who have undergone procedures including rhinoplasty, blepharoplasty, brow lifts, otoplasty and the Deep Plane Face and Neck Lift.

Nine weeks post Deep Plane Face and Neck Lift.

Following the Deep Plane Face and Neck Lift photos, I often write:

Note the natural, elegant youthful jawline and neck contour. There is no pulled look or redundant neck tissue. Those in the know understand that Deep Plane Face and Necklifts take the tension off the skin so there is no “pulled” look.

Deep Plane Face and Neck lifts look natural because the patient’s own ligaments are re-tensioned and repositioned.

Deep plane is ideal for younger and older patients.

 Outcomes experienced by one person do not necessarily reflect what another person may experience. Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks which you should discuss in detail with your surgeon.

This Before and After is ten years apart. The Before shot shows our patient after a previous failed facelift performed elsewhere which left him with an unsatisfactory neck and jaw contour as well as skin pleating. I performed a Revision surgery on him to correct this several years ago and a follow up procedure to retighten everything two weeks ago.

So that you are more ‘in the know’ here are ten things that are particular to this technique:

  1. You need to be an experienced surgeon with superior knowledge of facial anatomy in order to perform it;
  2. I was among the first in Australia to perform the Deep Plane Face and Neck Lift and am part of the growing number of elite surgeons worldwide who are skilled and experienced in performing it;
  3. There’s a less ‘pulled’ look resulting, compared with other techniques;
  4. There is less visible scarring following this procedure when compared with other face and neck lift techniques;
  5. Recovery time is less (usually), compared with other face and neck lift techniques;
  6. Results tend to last longer (up to 15 years), compared with other face and neck lift techniques;
  7. Lifts the neck and face together;
  8. Lifts the mid-face more effectively than other techniques;
  9. Because the Deep Plane Face and Neck Lift repositions and re-tensions the patient’s own ligaments – this is ideal for patients of different ages.
  10. There is less swelling compared with other facelift techniques because there is less disturbance of the lymphatics.

When it comes to the Deep Plane Face and Neck Lift, nobody needs to know, except you.

For any facial surgical procedure, it’s important to be in good health to begin with. There are also a number of things you can do to optimise your recovery and outcomes, all of which are outlined in your consultation.  For more information, contact us
