As time passes, signs of aging like sagging jowls, sunken cheeks, and wrinkles can be worrisome. With the deep plane facelift in NYC, Dr. Jeffrey Lisiecki offers a highly effective and transformative procedure, resulting in tighter, more elastic skin, smoother wrinkles, defined jawlines, and refined facial features. Rediscover your youthful reflection in the mirror.

What is a deep plane facelift?

A deep plane facelift is a highly advanced surgical procedure to address the signs of aging on the face and neck. Unlike traditional facelifts that primarily focus on superficial layers of the skin, the deep plane facelift targets the deeper layers of facial tissue and muscles. By repositioning and tightening these underlying structures, the procedure achieves more dramatic and longer-lasting results. This technique addresses sagging skin and also lifts and rejuvenates the midface, jawline, and neck, providing a comprehensive facial transformation.

Deep plane facelift vs. SMAS facelift: what’s the difference?

Both the deep plane facelift and SMAS facelift target the SMAS layer — the connective tissues and muscles beneath the facial skin. But there are crucial distinctions in how they lift and rejuvenate the face. The SMAS facelift tightens the deeper facial tissues by cutting and suturing them, while a deep plane facelift lifts this layer up as a flap and repositions it. The SMAS facelift and the deep plane facelift in NYC are different approaches aimed at the same result. Which technique is best for you will depend on your individual anatomy and personal factors such as your age.

Dr. Lisiecki’s personalized deep plane facelift technique

Dr. Lisiecki’s personalized deep plane facelift in NYC begins with a thorough consultation to understand your concerns and aesthetic goals. During this consultation, Dr. Lisiecki will assess your facial features, evaluate the degree of skin laxity, and discuss the details of the deep plane facelift procedure. He will provide instructions on necessary preparations, such as discontinuing smoking and avoiding blood-thinning medications and supplements to promote optimal healing.

Dr. Lisiecki will make incisions carefully placed within the hairline and around the ears, minimizing visible scarring. Through these incisions, he will meticulously tighten and secure the underlying layer of connective tissue and muscles. Ligaments at a deeper level will be released to achieve a lifted appearance. Dr. Lisiecki will skillfully reposition the layer of muscle and tissues before closing the incisions.

Recovery after a deep plane facelift surgery

In the first few days after a deep plane facelift, cold packs should be applied to reduce swelling, and sleeping with an elevated head is recommended. Showering and hair washing can typically be resumed within a few days of a deep plane facelift in NYC. Over the next two weeks, you can engage in light activities and gradually resume driving and applying makeup. By week three, swelling and bruising improve, and you are socially presentable. After week four, you can gradually return to strenuous activities with clearance from Dr. Lisiecki.
