Is it Real?

by | May 24, 2024 | Blog, Facelift

The Deep Plane Face and Neck Lift is real.

Every week I see real people who seek real changes to their appearance. They want to look like a youthful version of themself.

They are tired of the appearance of jowls, loose skin on their necks, hooding of the eyelids and bags under the eyes.

They want more defined jawlines, sculpted cheekbones, and brighter looking eyes. Sometimes the excess skin in these regions contributes to a feeling or appearance of tiredness.

At other times, it is having people ask them if they are tired or cranky when they are not that motivates them to explore options for facial rejuvenation.

Poor Outcomes

A fake can be spotted! Facelifts of the past have created a stigma. You could tell when someone had one. Their skin pulled tight, facial features out of proportion or, worse still, frozen.

Even today, some people meet unskilled surgeons with inferior techniques and end up with an ‘obviously done’ look, at best. At worst, things can end in a disaster. Uplifting promises, seemingly bargain prices and a lack of due diligence combine to create a big red flag.

The Gold Standard

Not every surgeon can perform the Deep Plane Face and Neck Lift                                                                                                    It requires an advanced understanding of facial anatomy, training, and skill.

Because the patient’s own ligaments are retensioned there is no pulled look.

There are no tell-tale or giveaway signs: results are real.

The Ring of Truth

Especially as I was the first to introduce the Deep Plane Face and Neck Lift to Australia (as popularised by Dr Neil Gordon and Dr Andrew Jacono from New York), over a decade ago, there are growing numbers of reviews of my work in the public domain. I take pride in performing the more difficult and complex procedures, working with a team who really cares about each person, every step of the way. I’m grateful for the many five-star reviews from patients and take delight from successful outcomes.

Every now and again, a random ‘fake’ review pops into the mix. Sometimes the person even makes up a fake name so that we have no way of verifying or addressing any concerns. The service providers aren’t quick to address fakes. A fake review stands out – just like a fake facelift it can always be spotted.

I prefer to keep things real.
