23 Jun Maximize Midface, Jawline & Neck Rejuvenation With An Extended Deep Plane Facelift
Eliminate The Signs Of Aging
Facial aging is a natural process that happens to every individual, regardless of gender or ethnicity. As people age, the midface, which is the area between the eyes and mouth, jawline, and neck show signs of aging. Sagging skin, wrinkles, and loss of volume are common. While many treatments are available to address these issues, an extended deep plane facelift is worth considering. Facelifts are great for people who have tried non-surgical facial rejuvenation but need more dramatic results.
Extending the facelift
Available to both men and women, an extended deep plane facelift aims to restore a youthful appearance to the midface, jawline, and neck. The surgical procedure involves making incisions in the hairline and around the ear, allowing the surgeon to access the deeper layers of the face. The surgeon then repositions and tightens the underlying muscles and tissues, removing excess skin and fat.
What are the benefits?
An extended deep plane facelift offers several benefits over other types of facelifts. First, this procedure targets the deeper layers of the face, allowing for more significant and longer-lasting results. Second, an extended deep plane facelift can simultaneously address multiple areas of the face, including the midface, jawline, and neck. Patients can achieve a more comprehensive rejuvenation with a single procedure. Moreover, this procedure offers a more natural-looking result than other facelift techniques. By repositioning the deeper tissues and muscles, the surgeon can create a more youthful appearance that looks fresh and natural. This is especially important for patients who want to avoid the pulled or overdone look that can result from other types of facelifts.
Potential risks and complications
As with any surgical procedure, an extended deep plane facelift carries some risks and potential complications. Patients need to understand these risks before undergoing the procedure. Although rare, bleeding, infection, nerve injury, scarring, hematoma, and adverse reactions to anesthesia are all possible. Skilled and experienced plastic surgeons can help minimize these risks.
Understanding the healing process
Recovery from an extended deep plane facelift can take several weeks. Patients will experience some swelling and bruising, especially in the first few days after the procedure. Pain and discomfort can be managed with medication prescribed by the surgeon. Most patients can return to work and other activities within 2-3 weeks after the procedure. Patients should follow the surgeon’s instructions carefully during the recovery period. This may include avoiding strenuous activity, getting plenty of rest, and taking steps to minimize swelling and bruising.
Choosing deep plane
An extended deep plane facelift is a significant surgical procedure but may not be suitable for every patient. Interested patients should consult a surgeon to discuss the most appropriate procedure. The best candidates for this procedure are generally those in good health, non-smokers, and people with realistic expectations about the possible results. As such, the deep plane facelift is recommended for those with significant signs of aging, such as skin laxity, sagging jowls, deep nasolabial folds, loose jawline, and marionette lines around the mouth. Patients should also be willing to commit to a period of recovery and follow the surgeon’s instructions carefully to ensure the best possible outcome.
