Sometimes, a more complex surgical approach to the traditional facelift is needed in order to achieve the most transformative results. If you’re looking for the most rejuvenating facial surgery available, then the deep plane facelift is your best option. With the help of Dr. David Gilpin, our double board-certified facial plastic surgeon, you can achieve the most renewing results possible with facelift surgery.
Deep plane facelifts are plastic surgery procedures designed to rejuvenate the face at a deeper level than traditional facelift surgery. It’s a relatively new surgical technique that better addresses the root causes of aging rather than simply smoothing the skin. Many facial plastic surgeons prefer the deep plane facelift procedure for patients who need substantial rejuvenation because it can produce the most transformative results.

The traditional facelift works by lifting the superficial skin and tightening it, removing any excess in a natural-looking way and suturing the remaining skin back in place. However, this doesn’t address the underlying causes of aging, which are the effects of volume loss and sagging of the deep tissues of the face. The result is smoother skin – but without correcting the underlying tissues that support it.
The deep plane facelift is a facelift technique that goes beyond the traditional facelift. The facial skin and tissues exist on top of a layer of deep tissues called the superficial musculoaponeurotic system, or SMAS. (An extended deep plane facelift is also called an SMAS facelift.) A traditional facelift doesn’t typically address the SMAS and instead only addresses the top layers of the facial skin. The deep plane facelift lifts and releases the SMAS in order to rejuvenate the face at its deepest levels. By lifting the fat pads in the cheeks and deep tissues to their natural, youthful position, volume loss, sagging, and deep folds can be reversed.

A traditional facelift is a great option for patients who have moderate signs of aging. With a traditional facelift, the upper layers of the skin can be rejuvenated for a younger look. However, for patients with more severe sagging and folds, the deep plane technique is the best option when it comes to facial plastic surgery. We recognize that it can be difficult to know which option is best for you and your budget, so Dr. David Gilpin can assess your goals during a private consultation at our Nashville office.
The deep plane facelift typically requires 2-3 weeks of dedicated recovery. It’s normal to experience bruising and swelling during this time, and you’ll be given prescription medications to manage any discomfort. It’s extremely important to keep your head elevated while sleeping and avoid any strenuous activity. Dr. Gilpin will monitor your recovery and provide care steps according to your progress.
It can take a few months for all swelling to subside and for your final results to emerge, but most patients see stunning improvement in the youthfulness of their facial profile after a deep plane facelift. In fact, some patients remove 10-15 years off their facial profile with the help of Dr. Gilpin. One of the biggest benefits of the deep plane facelift is that it can produce long-term results, and our team can help you maximize your results with the right skincare and non-surgical treatments at our Nashville office.
