IN VOGUE: The Deep Plane Facelift

by | Jan 18, 2022 | Blog, Facelift

The Deep Plane Facelift is on trend - type it into a search engine and suddenly more plastic and aesthetic surgeons are listing it as a part of their offerings.

When I started offering the Deep Plane Face and Neck Lift in Australia a decade ago, it was virtually unheard of.

Only a few surgeons in the world were practicing this method.

Some people even recommended I rename it as they thought that prospective patients could be put off by the term “deep plane”, not realising that the method was superior - with less downtime and longer lasting, more natural looking results.

Because the Deep Plane Face and Neck Lift repositions and re-tensions the patient’s own ligaments it is ideal for patients of different ages. There is less swelling compared with other facelift techniques as there is less disturbance of the lymphatics. There is also less visible scaring.

Typical results include a more elegant jawline and neckline and more defined cheek bones. There are none of the “I’ve had a facelift” signs that other methods may display such as skin pulled too tight or features out of proportion.

Not any surgeon can do this.

Be aware. It takes superior knowledge of facial anatomy, advanced training, and time to develop the expertise to perform the Deep Plane Facelift.

I learned from Dr Neil Gordon, Director of Aesthetic Head and Neck Surgery at Yale School of Medicine.

You can read more about my decades of education, training, and experience here.

Nowadays, I am invited to offer my knowledge and insights to other surgeons on this technique at local and international surgical specialty meetings.

By far, the most rewarding aspect for me about performing the Deep Plane Face and Neck Lift is the feedback I receive from my patients. They love that they look like themselves, only younger

As more people have now heard of the Deep Plane Facelift, prospective patients now ask me about it. Some may have read about it in a magazine or done their research by browsing online.

What you need to know is that not every surgeon who says that they can perform the Deep Plane Facelift is experienced. Be aware and take care. While they may be jumping on board with what’s on trend – it’s a technique that can’t be finessed overnight. Although more plastic and aesthetic surgeons are now learning, there is still only a small group of elite surgeons experienced in performing the Deep Plane Facelift worldwide, including in Australia.

PHOTOS in this blog post are of a happy patient at only three weeks post Deep Plane Face and Neck Lift and Brow Lift. My patient had noticed signs of ageing including loose skin around the corners of her mouth and along her jawline (jowls), as well as loose skin and soft tissue in the neck. She wanted to deal with these issues before they became more obvious. Now at only three weeks post-op note the natural, elegant jawline and neck contour. There is no pulled look or redundant neck tissue.

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.
