Deep Plane Facelift

Face and Neck Lift using the Deep Plane Technique

Treatment Overview


Facelifts are a common procedure to help improve the signs of ageing. There are a number of different techniques for face and neck lifts. At Reza Nassab Plastic Surgery in Cheshire & Manchester deep plane facelifts are a technique used to help improve the signs of ageing and address the face, jawline and neck.

There are many different types of facelift from mini to full facelifts but there are also differing techniques. The full facelift technique aim to address not only the skin but also the deeper SMAS layer. The SMAS, which is short for Superficial Musculoaponeurotic System, is the deep layer of tissue that lies beneath the skin. This is the layer that when lifted or tightened improves the signs of the ageing face.

SMAS Facelifts

There are a number of ways that the SMAS layer can be tightened or lifted. The first option is to plicate the SMAS layer. This involves stitching the SMAS layer onto itself which results in tightening of the SMAS in the cheek area. The effect of this is to lift the lower face and jowl area. The next option is a SMASectomy which is a technique that removes a piece of the SMAS. The remaining SMAS is then stitched to the tissues to help improve the ageing face.

What is a Deep Plane Facelift?

The deep plane refers to the space underneath the SMAS layer. This is an important that contains many important structures such as the facial nerve. The subSMAS or deep plane can be extended to the neck area. This technique is a more invasive procedure due to the deeper dissection. When the SMAS is lifted off the deeper structures it can be moved to and repositioned to the tissues around the ear. The effect of this is to provide an effective lift of the lower face.

Neck Lift

The neck can be lifted or tightened alone or in combination with a facelift procedure. This involves making an incision under the chin. Some patients need fat removal with liposuction in the neck area. In some patients, there may be some laxity of the muscles which may need stitching to tighten. This stitching of the neck muscles helps give a more defined area under the chin.
