With age, many of us experience a loss of facial volume, leading to a sunken or hollow look. Volume-enhancing procedures like dermal fillers or fat grafting have been used to address this issue. However, a deep plane facelift offers a comprehensive solution.
In this blog, Artiste Plastic Surgery will delve into the deep plane facelift technique and explore how it can effectively combat facial volume loss.
How does Deep Plane Facelift work?
A deep plane facelift is a cosmetic surgery that targets the deeper layers of the face, specifically the superficial musculoaponeurotic system (SMAS). Unlike traditional facelift techniques that focus on lifting and tightening the skin alone, the deep plane facelift involves repositioning and tightening the deep tissues, including the SMAS layer, to achieve improved and longer lasting lift.
It is important to note that, like in any surgery, a deep plane facelift involves some potential risks and complications.
Restoring Natural Volume
One of the key advantages of the deep plane facelift is its ability to address facial volume loss by repositioning the deep tissues. During the procedure, the surgeon can lift and reposition the fat pads, muscles, and ligaments to their original positions. This technique not only tightens the face but also restores lost volume, resulting refreshed appearance.
By targeting the deep tissues, the procedure addresses the underlying causes of facial volume loss. As a result, the rejuvenation achieved through a deep plane facelift can have greater longevity compared to treatments that solely address superficial layers. Patients can enjoy their appearance for years, minimising the need for repeated procedures.
