Deep Plane Facelift Beverly Hills, CA

Deep Rejuvenation. Natural-Looking Results.

Deep Plane Facelift in Beverly Hills by Dr. Patrick Davis

Since its conception, surgical facial rejuvenation has offered the most substantial results by removing loose excess skin for a more taut, youthful look. However, the traditional facelift technique can sometimes result in a windswept or “done” appearance as it only addresses lax skin without restoring underlying tissues to their more youthful positions.

A Deep Plane Facelift offers a more comprehensive solution to signs of aging in the face, effectively addressing lax skin as well as underlying structural tissues for a naturally younger look. Dr. Patrick Davis offers his patients in Beverly Hills deep plane facelifts to help them achieve a more lifted, youthful look. The Deep Plane Facelift is the gold standard technique in facial rejuvenation.

What is a Deep Plane Facelift?

A Better Approach to Surgical Facial Rejuvenation

Traditional facelifts involve removing excess skin & pulling it tight horizontally. Since gravity causes aging to occur vertically, this approach almost invariably produces tell-tale signs of surgical intervention. The face may appear ”worked on” as the skin is pulled in an unnatural direction, and the underlying tissues remain low on the face due to aging.

A Deep Plane Facelift focuses on vertical rejuvenation, effectively lifting the various components of the face in a way that appears far more natural. In contrast to the SMAS (superficial musculopaneurotic system) facelift, a Deep Plane Facelift lifts the skin and underlying tissues without separating them from each other, further enhancing its ability to deliver natural-looking results.

An added benefit of not separating the skin from the nourishing structures underneath allows for laser treatments to be performed on the face at the same time of the surgery as the skin has adequate blood supply. A Deep Plane Facelift is an effective technique for:

  • Enhancing chin definition
  • Restoring youthful facial volume
  • Reducing the appearance of jowls
  • Wrinkles and “crepey” skin in the neck
  • Smoothing fine lines and wrinkles in the mid and lower face

What are the benefits of a Deep Plane Facelift?

Restore Your Naturally Youthful Appearance

A Deep Plane Facelift offers more significant & longer-lasting facial rejuvenation than a traditional facelift, in addition to the most natural-looking results. Furthermore, since the Deep Plane Facelift does not involve separating the skin from the underlying muscle, it involves a less involved recovery than a SMAS facelift. A Deep Plane Facelift can allow for:

  • Less bruising 
  • Better circulation
  • Better healing of incisions
  • Minimal lumps and bumps after surgery

With a Deep Plane Facelift with Dr. Patrick Davis, you won’t have to worry about the “windswept” look. You’ll simply look like a younger version of you, with no obvious signs of surgery. While a SMAS facelift focuses more on the lower face, a Deep Plane Facelift lifts the volume in the mid-face as well for both a deeper and farther-reaching rejuvenating effect.
