No.1 for Deep Plane Facelift

by | Feb 6, 2022 | Blog, Facelift

The Deep Plane Face and Neck Lift is in demand. As it gains popularity and gets increased media attention, more people are asking me about it.

Longer lasting results, including a more defined jawline, less sagging skin on the neck, sculpted cheekbones and natural looking outcomes that take at least a decade off a person’s appearance are just some of its hallmarks. The fact that recovery time is generally less than with other procedures, with less visible scarring and more predictable results are other appealing features.

Of course, now there are growing numbers of aesthetic and plastic surgeons worldwide and in Australia who are beginning to list the Deep Plane Facelift amongst their offerings.

Earned Expertise

Please be aware that this is an advanced procedure that can’t be performed without specialised training. The nuances of it also take years of experience to effectively deliver.

When I started performing the Deep Plane Facelift over a decade ago, few people had heard of it.

My Experience

The Deep Plane Facelift was developed in the early 1990’s. I learned it from Dr Neil A. Gordon who is widely credited for his innovative role in championing and finessing.

I first met Dr Gordon in New Orleans in 1996. At that stage I was applying for Fellowships in Facial Plastic Surgery. Dr Gordon was a Fellow with Dr Calvin M. Johnson and I was applying to further my training with him.

Dr Gordon and I also attended the New Orleans Jazz Festival that year – as well as now being a valued colleague and friend we share a love of music.

Being a practitioner of Facial Plastic Surgery requires dedication and an ongoing educational exchange with leading surgeons worldwide.

Before 2011, by now an experienced surgeon, I was looking for ways to achieve even better outcomes in facial rejuvenation for my patients. Dr Gordon was saying to come and visit, so I went. I was astounded by the quality of his work so scheduled time off later that year to immerse in Deep Plane Face and Neck Lift training. Before then I was already performing a partial Deep Plane but didn’t fully appreciate all the nuances until visiting him.


While I was President of the Australasian Academy of Facial Plastic Surgery we invited Dr Gordon (along with other leading plastic, ENT and aesthetic surgeons) to share his insights as Keynote Speaker at some of our annual meetings.

The Australian media including were interested in the latest advances and techniques and our collaborative exchanges.

In 2011, I was the first surgeon in Australia to offer the Deep Plane Facelift. Over a decade on, I’m now regularly invited to share my expertise and insights at the top Facial Plastic Surgery meetings worldwide.
