Ideal Candidates

Older adults experiencing significant facial sagging can reap the greatest benefits from this procedure. Deep plane lift treatments are like facelift surgery but offer greater lift while minimizing recovery time. If you are in good health and are not a smoker, chances are you are a good candidate for this treatment. 

Deep Plane Lift Procedure

The deep plane lift procedure is performed using the sub-SMAS technique. SMAS stands for the superficial muscular aponeurotic system and is the fibrous network that divides your face’s deep and superficial structures. During the surgery, the doctor will make an incision and enter the deep plane below the SMAS. The facial and neck tissue and muscle beneath the skin are lifted and rearranged into higher positions. Excess skin is removed, and the remaining skin is redraped over the face. The incisions are then closed with sutures.

Treatment Outcome

Once the area has sufficiently healed, a deep plane lift’s results can last up to 10 years. This duration varies from case to case, but most patients can experience these long-lasting results. Dr. Aronowitz can discuss the recovery process and any and all follow-up sessions you will need to ensure you get the best outcome.
