A deep plane facelift goes deeper than a traditional facelift and targets the midface below the muscular and soft tissue layer. Incisions are hidden in the hairline and around the ears. The cheeks, jowls and neck tissues are lifted and secured in place with sutures. The excess skin is removed at the incision sites and the incisions are closed with sutures. The patient’s face is then wrapped with a full-face soft cotton dressing that provides pressure to minimize bruising and swelling. This is very effective in treating the midface but this technique can involve more risks and especially to the facial nerves.
