24 Aug Rejuvenating Your Appearance For The Next 10-15 Years With An Extended Deep Plane Facelift
Say Goodbye To Sagging Skin
As people age, signs of aging, such as wrinkles, sagging skin, and jowls may become more noticeable. Although aging is natural, changes in skin elasticity and firmness can impact an individual’s self-confidence and overall appearance. An extended deep plane facelift is a common surgical procedure to address aging signs in the mid and lower face. By working in the deep layer of tissue beneath the skin, the procedure can provide dramatic and long-lasting results.
The effects of growing older
Natural aging typically involves a loss of skin elasticity and volume in the face. The changes in skin can result in wrinkles, sagging skin, and jowls. An extended deep plane facelift addresses the common signs of aging by repositioning underlying tissue and tightening the skin. The procedure results in a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance capable of lasting for the next 10-15 years.
The deep plane procedure
During the extended deep plane facelift, the surgeon will make an incision around the ears and down to the hairline. The surgeon will then lift the skin and perform a deep plane dissection to access the superficial musculoaponeurotic system (SMAS) layer. The SMAS layer will then be tightened, and the skin will be re-draped and closed. Recovery time can vary, but most patients can expect to return to normal activities within 2-3 weeks.
Extended facelift candidates
Not every individual is a good candidate for an extended deep plane facelift. Consult a qualified surgeon to determine whether the procedure is suitable. Factors such as age, skin elasticity and thickness, general health, medical history, and realistic expectations should all be considered before moving forward with the surgery.
Risks and complications
Like any surgical procedure, risks may occur with an extended deep plane facelift. The complications may include infection, bleeding, scarring, and nerve damage. However, the risks can be minimized by choosing a qualified surgeon and following all instructions.
While an extended deep plane facelift can provide long-lasting and significant results, the surgical procedure may not be suitable for every individual. Non-surgical alternatives such as injectables can also address signs of aging on the face. Neurotoxin injectables temporarily relax the muscles that cause wrinkles and fine lines, while dermal fillers add volume to the face and smooth out wrinkles. The treatments offer temporary results that can last from several months to up to 2 years, depending on the specific treatment used.
An extended deep plane facelift is a potential solution to rejuvenate the appearance and address signs of aging in the mid and lower face. The procedure can provide long-lasting results, instilling years of renewed confidence. Consult with a qualified plastic surgeon to determine whether this procedure is suitable and to learn more about the many benefits.
