Deep Plane Facelift In Nashville

For a Natural Look, Go Deep

Welcome to the facelift of the future. With modern surgical techniques and holistic recovery routines, you can see rejuvenation and vitality in your face, not the tight and synthetic appearance of facelifts in past decades. If you want to see your face in a new light, consider a Deep Plane Facelift. Instead of adjusting only the upper level of your face, a Deep Plane Facelift modifies and molds the deeper tissue of your face giving you more natural-looking, less superficial facelift results.

What is a Deep Plane Facelift?

Nashville Deep Plane Facelift

This procedure focuses on the deeper muscles of the face that are responsible for facial movement and expression.

Instead of just adjusting and pulling skin and upper tissue, which can result in a too-tight look, a Deep Plane Facelift changes the underlying structures, including ligaments that cause skin laxity in some areas and hollowness in others. By working with the muscle and fascia below, this surgery can correct multiple issues with a natural-looking, rejuvenated result.

What are the differences between a Deep Plane Facelift and a traditional facelift?

The main difference between a traditional and a Deep Plane Facelift is where the tension is placed to achieve a more lifted, younger-looking appearance.

With a traditional facelift, the skin is lifted and repositioned separately from the deeper tissue, creating a pulled look if too much tension is put on the skin compared to the underlying layers. In contrast, a Deep Plane Facelift lifts and replaces the skin and deeper layers at once so the tension can be placed on the muscles and fascia without the skin appearing taught or out of place.

Benefits of a Deep Plane Facelift

Feeling great about your appearance can give you confidence in every aspect of your life, from relationships to your career and beyond.

If you are unsatisfied with what you see in the mirror each morning, a Deep Plane Facelift can give you a brand new outlook. With this technique, you can enjoy benefits like:

  • Firmer skin
  • Reduced or eliminated wrinkles
  • Sculpted jawline
  • Filled hollow under-eye area
  • Brighter, more awake look
  • Younger appearance

Consultation and Preparation

During a consultation, we will take a detailed medical history and discuss any medications or supplements you may be taking.

We will also go over your specific aesthetic goals and create a customized treatment plan. Prior to the procedure, we may perform a few lab tests or a more comprehensive medical evaluation. Dr. O’Connor and her team will make suggestions regarding your diet and lifestyle to help speed up healing times and give you optimal results. Since healing takes time, our Nashville Deep Plane Facelift patients will want to check their calendar to ensure the procedure won’t be taking place too close to any big events.

Deep Plane Facelift in Nashville

We perform Deep Plane Facelifts under MAC, or monitored anesthesia care, also called twilight sedation.

With this type of anesthesia, each patient’s vital statistics are monitored during the procedure to ensure a precise amount of sedative to prevent pain or discomfort without the need for intubation and providing a faster recovery.

During the procedure, your surgeon will make incisions that vary in size and location depending on the surgical plan. After incisions are made, the muscle, fascia, fat, and skin will be adjusted, repositioned, and then sutures will be used to secure them in place.

Results, Recovery, and Aftercare

After the procedure, you will likely feel drowsy and disoriented due to the anesthesia.

Our Nashville Deep Plane Facelift patients will need someone to drive them home, and we recommend having someone available to help for about the first 24 hours. Children and pets will need a caretaker other than you for the 1-2 days. You will receive detailed instructions for aftercare before you are sent home on the day of surgery.

The Deep Plane Facelift has become a common practice among many plastic surgeons alongside traditional facelifts, and many patients prefer the results.

Most patients report feeling very minimal pain after surgery and mostly experience a tight or heavy sensation.

Common side effects include swelling, bruising, and numbness. More serious but very rare risks are uncommon and discussed at length during your consultation with Dr. O’Connor.

The results of this type of facelift typically last 10 to 12 years, with some adjustments lasting even longer.

While there is no set age that is ideal, a Deep Place Facelift is optimal for most patients who are 40+ and who could benefit from the technique..

The cost of a Deep Plane Facelift will depend on what your specific needs are as a patient and if any other procedures will be performed at the same time. Exact costs will be discussed during your visit with Dr. O’Connor.
