Am I a Good Candidate for a Deep Plane Facelift?
The deep plane facelift is one of the most advanced, sophisticated facial plastic surgery techniques used today. Its benefits include:
- Facial rejuvenation
- Natural-looking results
- Significant neck and jawline re-definition
- Faster healing
- Minimal Complications
With all a deep plane facelift has to offer, why would anyone want anything else?
Profile of a Deep Plane Facelift Patient
The deep plane lift creates dramatic changes in the mid-face area, including the cheeks, nasolabial folds (nose to mouth), jawline and chin. Generally speaking, if you are a good candidate for a standard facelift, you are likely to be a good candidate for a deep plane lift, too.
It’s an ideal solution for you if:
- You have severely sagging skin on your face and neck
- You have loose skin on your face and neck
- Your sagging features make you look tired, angry, and upset, even when you’re not
- You want results that are natural and subtle, rather than dramatic and “done”
- You are seeking a procedure with long-lasting results and few revisions
Most experienced surgeons agree that skin lifting alone (SMAS) and short facelift procedures which seem to be reinvented every few years are appealing because of their ease, but in the end they seem to fail to live up to any promise of durability. The results of a deep plane facelift, on the other hand, range from five to ten years.
3 Rules for EVERY Facelift Surgery Patient
Anyone who is considering facial plastic surgery or cosmetic procedures of any kind, should
- Be in good overall physical health
- Have clear and realistic expectations about the results
- Be a non-smoker
Why is being smoke-free such an important criteria? “Smoking causes the blood vessels to contract. This affects blood flow and puts extra stress on the body,” explains Dr Marcells. “Additionally, the nicotine in smoke can make blood clot more easily, affecting the body’s healing mechanisms.”
For these reasons, Dr Marcells tells his patients to refrain from smoking for a minimum of four to six weeks prior to their surgery.
