Aging is a process that cannot be delayed beyond a certain point. Unfortunately, the fine lines and wrinkles evident on your face do not leave you pleased. You are eager to cover up the problem areas but no cosmetic can do the needful. One of the most popular and effective procedures for removing distinct signs of aging and making you appear years younger is to go for an extended deep plane facelift.
You must be aware of the traditional facelift which is an invasive process. Is the deep plane option any less invasive or completely bereft of side effects? It is time to find out the truth once you decide in favor of undergoing cosmetic surgery.
Some of the questions that are sure to surface in your mind include:
What is a deep plane facelift?
Well, it is an invasive cosmetic surgery performed by experienced surgeons to improve your appearance. Facial structures are targeted by reaching under layers of skin. Alterations are made to suit the purpose so that your face achieved a new and improved appearance with all signs of aging being addressed suitably. This procedure is believed to be far superior to rhytidectomy (SMAS) i.e., the traditional face lifting surgery. The reason behind the popularity of the deep plane facelift lies in the fact that the procedure goes beyond the superficial layer of the skin which makes the results much improved and long-lasting.
Which particular area of the face can be targeted via this method?
This procedure has succeeded in producing amazing results when the midsection of the face is addressed. You will thus be fully satisfied with the outcome when you need to reduce the deeply entrenched nasolabial folds. However, you are welcome to try this procedure on the lower third of your face for effective results too.
Advantages of undergoing this type of facelift
- Effective rejuvenation of the face
- Improves appearance to make the patient look years younger
- Adds volume to the cheeks
- There is no tight drawn look
- The altered musculature is fully supported causing the results to last much longer
- This procedure will pull the skin up with the fat deposits addressed effectively to make you look younger without altering the shape of your face or any of the features
- Bruising and swelling up of the target area is less in comparison to traditional facelift procedures
Are you a good candidate for this procedure?
- You are certainly a good candidate when you are well above 40 years of age with fat deposition on your face that is marred with fine lines and wrinkles
- Loose skin and prominent nasolabial folds can be corrected/tightened to a great degree
- You would not be advised to undergo this procedure if you want to go in for a secondary facelift
- Smokers and individuals with any type of bleeding disorders are not suitable candidates
While the extended deep plane facelift promises many advantages, it is advisable to discuss the recovery time and side effects in detail with a medical professional before deciding to go for it.
