Why We Love The Comprehensive Deep Plane Facelift

As an excellent option for patients who want to treat advanced signs of aging across the mid and lower face and neck, the Comprehensive Deep Plane Facelift, is a winning procedure for these reasons:

  1. Substantial mid face lift with vertical cheek repositioning (cheek lift) providing a heart shaped face
  2. Substantial tightening of lower face and jawline creating a crisp appearance
  3. Substantial neck lift that offers an elegant and youthful look
  4. It's customized to your unique needs. The name says it all: “comprehensive” means that this procedure addresses the widest range of aging concerns, more so than any other type of surgery, and Dr. Buonassisi tailors each facelift to the individual patient.

What is the Comprehensive Deep Plane Facelift?

You might have heard this type of facelift called a long incision or full facelift, but the Deep Plane Facelift is a more accurate description of this procedure. We've added “Comprehensive” because this type of facelift is the ultimate in facial rejuvenation surgery.With the Comprehensive Deep Plane Facelift, Dr. Buonassisi addresses significant aging concerns in the mid face, lower face, and neck, such as descending cheeks, jowls, and jawline and neck laxity. This is a surgical procedure that is most suitable for mature patients who notice advanced signs of aging that fillers and other treatments can't correct. The Comprehensive Deep Plane Facelift is an invasive surgical procedure that must be taken seriously, but it also produces remarkable—yet natural-looking—results. Patients typically take a couple weeks off work and experience normal swelling and bruising. You'll be up to light household activities within a day or two and can expect to be “restaurant ready” in 3 weeks, with incisions easily concealed with makeup until they begin to fade on their own.

Who is the Comprehensive Deep Plane Facelift For?

The Comprehensive Deep Plane Facelift is the most substantial type of facelift, and it also yields the most impressive results. This procedure targets the mid face, lower face, jawline, and neck, addressing some of the common signs of aging, including:

  • Mid face sagging and deflated cheek volume
  • Softened and less-defined jawline
  • Lack of neckline definition
  • Formation of a double chin and jowls
  • Neck fullness and creases

Best suited for more mature patients who want to look refreshed, the Comprehensive Deep Plane Facelift is an excellent procedure that leads to stellar, long-lasting results that will make you feel your very best—inside and out.

How the Comprehensive Deep Plane Is Performed

The Comprehensive Deep Plane Facelift achieves tension-free, customizable facial rejuvenation by releasing tethering points of ligaments, muscles, and fat layers in the deep plane layer of the face and neck. This technique produces significant reshaping of aging areas in the face and neck. Dr. Buonassisi will have complete control to replace and elevate these layers back to a more youthful and natural-looking position.Dr. Buonassisi places incisions in front of and behind the ear. The skin of the lower face and neck is elevated away from the underlying muscle and fat. These deep structures are suspended upwards and slightly backward to a more youthful position. Excess skin is removed and the incisions are expertly sutured to minimize their appearance.

Complementary Treatments to Enhance Your Comprehensive Deep Plane Facelift

Since the Comprehensive Deep Plane Facelift addresses the mid face, lower face, and neck, there are fewer “top up” treatments that patients may need than with other types of facelifts. That said, we always welcome our Comprehensive Deep Plane Facelift patients to complement their surgery with these additional treatments to enhance their results:
