In the pursuit of looking improved, modern cosmetic surgery has evolved to offer innovative and transformative procedures. Among the most groundbreaking techniques is the Deep Plane Facelift, an exclusive offering by the peer reviewed Dr. Jack Zoumaras at Artiste Plastic Surgery in Sydney. 

In this article, we will explore the distinction between a Standard Deep Plane Facelift and its extended counterpart, shedding light on their benefits and applications.

Standard Deep Plane Facelift

The Standard Deep Plane Facelift is a cutting-edge surgical procedure that lifts the muscle and skin layers in one flap, resulting in a quicker recovery time compared to traditional facelifts. This technique is particularly ideal for younger patients who wish to combat the initial signs of aging, primarily targeting the jowls and face without the need for a neck lift.

By releasing critical facial ligaments and lifting the underlying muscle, the Standard Deep Plane Facelift achieves a remarkable changes on the nasolabial folds, jowls, and cheeks. The procedure not only improves your appearance but can affect your outlook (reserach pending publication).

Extended Deep Plane Facelift

While the Standard Deep Plane Facelift provides excellent results for specific facial concerns, some patients may require a more comprehensive approach to address additional areas of concern. This is where the Extended Deep Plane Facelift comes into play.

The Extended Deep Plane Facelift expands the scope of the procedure to lift and improve the mid and lower face, including the cheeks, jowls, and neck. By tightening the underlying musculature, this extended technique offers more natural and longer-lasting results.

Which Method is Right for You?

Determining the most suitable facelift method for your unique needs requires a comprehensive consultation with a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon. Factors such as age, facial structure, desired outcomes, and the extent of aging signs play a crucial role in the decision-making process.

For younger patients with early signs of aging, the Standard Deep Plane Facelift may be the perfect solution to lift and tighten the jowls and face, providing a youthful and refreshed appearance. On the other hand, those seeking a more comprehensive facial procedure and addressing concerns beyond the mid and lower face may benefit from the Extended Deep Plane Facelift.
