What is a Deep Plane Facelift?

The deep plane facelift is a specialized procedure that can reverse signs of facial aging while maintaining a natural and rejuvenated appearance. Unlike traditional facelifts, the deep plane technique offers longer-lasting results and avoids the overly tightened look.

One of the significant advantages of the deep plane facelift is its ability to deliver enduring results that surpass those achieved by other techniques. By repositioning the underlying structures and addressing multiple signs of aging, this procedure offers a comprehensive and long-lasting solution for facial rejuvenation.

How is the Procedure Performed?

The deep plane facelift procedure involves strategic incisions made behind the ears and within the hairline. By accessing the deeper layers, including the facial muscle and skin, Dr. Beck can reposition them as a cohesive unit, achieving a natural and comprehensive facial rejuvenation.

The deep plane facelift technique primarily targets the underlying SMAS layer, avoiding excessive manipulation of the superficial layers of skin. This approach offers several benefits, including more significant and longer-lasting results, as well as a faster healing process for patients.

A deep plane facelift in Charlotte NC is suitable for a wide range of patients, from those seeking preventive measures against early signs of aging to individuals grappling with advanced signs of facial aging. Younger patients looking to address initial signs of sagging skin and loss of definition can benefit from this procedure as a proactive approach. Older patients experiencing more pronounced signs of aging, such as volume loss and skin laxity, can also achieve significant rejuvenation through a deep plane facelift.

During the initial consultation, Dr. Beck conducts a comprehensive evaluation of the patient's medical history and current condition to determine their suitability for the procedure. Ideal candidates are non-smokers who are in a good mental and physical state. By carefully considering these factors, Dr. Beck ensures that patients are well-informed and prepared for their transformative journey toward a more youthful appearance.

What is the Recovery Period Like?

After a deep plane facelift procedure in Charlotte NC, patients can expect the application of light cotton dressings to the treated areas, which are to be kept on for the initial 24 hours. To ensure a comfortable recovery, prescription pain medications are provided to manage any discomfort during the first few days. It is common to experience temporary side effects such as numbness, bruising, and tightness in the face, which typically subside within a few weeks.

Patients can anticipate returning to their normal routines within 10 to 14 days following the procedure.
