52 Year Old Signature Facelift + Fat Grafting

The cosmetic surgery, facelift, is one of the most popular procedures to improve the look of the face for a more youthful appearance. Over the years, many facelift techniques, such as an advanced surgical procedure known as Deep Plane Facelift, have been developed to eliminate signs of ageing.

In this article, Artiste Plastic Surgery shares details on how a Deep Plane Facelift can help address sagging and drooping facial skin caused by the natural ageing process.

Understanding the Deep Plane Facelift Procedure

A Deep Plane Facelift is performed as an in-patient procedure in a fully accredited hospital. The procedure can last up to six hours and perform under a general aesthetic given by a qualified Anaesthetist to ensure the patient’s safety and comfort throughout the procedure. 

This procedure releases important facial ligaments, lifts the muscle and skin layers in one flap, and repositions the nasolabial folds, jowls, and cheeks to a youthful position.  Incisions of the surgery are placed behind the hairline and around the ear to ensure an inconspicuous scar.

Can a Deep Plane Facelift address sagging facial skin?

Yes, a deep plane facelift is an effective facelift technique for tightening facial skin. It helps you acheive firmer skin, lifting the jowls, neck and face tissues. However, dramatic results should not have to be noticeable. This innovative facelift procedure avoids the dreaded tight, pulled look, achieving more natural-looking results. 

Aside from achieving firmer skin, it also addresses lower eyelid hollowing, deep nasolabial folds, marionette lines and ptosis of the facial layers for a more youthful appearance.
