Our bodies go through numerous changes as we get older, and some of the most visible shifts tend to take place in our facial skin. Although we can temporarily stave off such changes with a quality skincare routine; eventually, most of us begin to develop fine lines, wrinkles, and loose, sagging skin. Although a traditional facelift can be an effective option to restore your youthful facial appearance, you may be concerned that the results of the procedure won’t look entirely natural. If that’s something you’re worried about, then a deep plane facelift in Dallas may be the solution you’re looking for.
What Is a Deep Plane Facelift?
A deep plane facelift is a cosmetic surgical procedure used to reduce signs of aging facial skin, such as lines, wrinkles, and skin laxity. The deep plane facelift is a popular alternative to the traditional facelift known for its ability to provide comprehensive, natural-looking results.
How Does a Deep Plane Facelift Differ From a Traditional Facelift?
The main thing that differentiates the deep plane facelift from more traditional facelift techniques is its focus on adjusting the underlying structure of the face. Primarily, the deep plane facelift involves the lifting of the SMAS (superficial musculoaponeurotic system) layer of connective tissue to tighten the cheeks, jawline, and neck. This type of facelift has been known to make patients look as much as 12 to 15 years younger.
The deep plane facelift gets its name from the anatomic plane located between the SMAS layer and the deeper facial muscles. During the procedure, Dr Beale focuses on releasing and adjusting the muscles and tissue rather than pulling and trimming excess skin. This allows the deep plane facelift to avoid the “stretched” look that people often complain about with traditional facelift procedures.
Benefits of the Deep Plane Facelift
If you’re looking to restore your firm, youthful-looking facial appearance, a deep plane facelift in Dallas can provide you with some or all of the following benefits:
- Smoother, firmer, more youthful facial skin
- Greatly reduces fine lines, wrinkles, and loose, sagging skin
- Enhances the definition of the jawline, cheeks, and neck
- Less skin trauma than other facelift methods
- Very low likelihood of needing revision procedures
- Exceptionally natural-looking results
- Lower likelihood of visible scarring than other facelift methods
- Prevents the “stretched” look that many people worry about with facelifts
- Increased self-confidence
- Makes the face look up to 12-15 years younger
How Long Is the Recovery Time?
After your deep plane facelift, you’ll need a friend or family member to drive you home and, ideally, stay with you for a night or two. For the first couple of weeks, you should rest frequently, sleep with your head elevated, and periodically apply a cold compress to your face. You should also take light walks around the house regularly. Most patients can return to work after around two weeks, but you should wait four to six weeks before participating in strenuous exercise.
Am I a Candidate for a Deep Plane Facelift?
Adults looking to achieve firmer, more youthful-looking facial skin could be good candidates for a deep plane facelift. Ideal candidates for the surgery should:
- Be in generally good health
- Have the desire for firmer, smoother facial skin without a “stretched” appearance
- Have realistic expectations
- Not be currently pregnant or nursing
- Be a non-smoker
- Have sagging skin around the face and/or neck
