Deep Plane Facelift in Athens, Greece
As your face ages, there are noticeable changes in the skin and underlying tissues. The loss of collagen in the skin and volume in the muscle and fat layer results in sagging skin and tissue. Facelift procedures are the gold standard in addressing facial aging, but there are different levels of facial rejuvenation. Deep plane facelift surgery is the most advanced method for creating a more youthful appearance. Dr. John Anastasatos offers the deep plane facelift in Athens, Greece.
What Is a Deep Plane Facelift?
Traditional facelift procedures only lift and tighten the skin. Incisions are made along the hairline to lift and tighten the skin in the lower face and neck. A more effective option is the SMAS facelift, which lifts and tightens the superficial musculoaponeurotic system (SMAS) and skin together. This is a better choice for remedying sagging jowls and tissue drooping along the jaw and upper neck. The deep plane facelift takes this process further.
With a deep plane facelift, or rhytidectomy, the muscles, SMAS and skin are lifted and tightened. The buccal fat pads in the midface can be elevated with the SMAS and skin. This can remove deep nasolabial folds around the mouth while tightening the jowls, jawline and upper neck. This deeper lift results in a more natural appearance with results that last much longer than a traditional facelift.
A deep plane facelift is not required for everyone. Those in the earlier stages of aging may not need this more advanced lifting procedure. However, for those with significant sagging of the SMAS and skin, a deep plane facelift will have superior outcomes that look more natural.
