What is a Deep Plane Face Lift?

A deep plane face lift in La Jolla is a modern take on an established approach to facial rejuvenation that addresses the underlying muscles and connective tissues, resulting in natural and long-lasting aesthetic improvements. This method focuses on the SMAS (superficial musculoaponeurotic system), a layer of fibrous tissue and muscles that contribute to facial contours and expressions. By targeting the SMAS, a deep plane face lift is able to provide more substantial and lasting improvements to the cheeks, jowls, jawline, and neck contour.

The key difference between a deep plane face lift and a traditional face lift lies in the depth of the surgical plane. While a traditional face lift typically involves only the skin, a deep plane face lift goes deeper to manipulate the SMAS, thus targeting the underlying structures that contribute to facial sagging and aging. The result under Dr. Bolitho’s hands is a natural-looking, harmonious rejuvenation that clients can feel confident and comfortable with.

A Deep Plane Face Lift Gives Lasting Rejuvenation

Because this advanced technique addresses the deep tissues and muscles of the face, rather than just tightening the skin, a deep plane face lift can effectively restore youthful contours and many clients find that the effect lasts longer than a traditional face lift.

Some of the benefits of a deep plane face lift include:

  • Tightening of sagging cheeks, jowls, and jawline
  • A higher neck contour for a more defined neck and jawline
  • Faster healing times compared with traditional face lifts
  • A reduced risk of problems arising from the surgery
  • Longer-lasting results, owing to the treatment of deeper facial layers
