The deep plane face and neck lift is a plastic surgery procedure which can completely rejuvenate the mid face, lower face, and the neck. By correcting sagging facial skin, jowls, and loose neck skin, the result is a more refreshed and youthful appearance. This procedure provides dramatic, natural, and long-lasting results. Good candidates for a deep plane face and neck lift include healthy men and women who are looking to improve significant face and neck sagging with redundant skin, fat, and muscle.
Dr. Schwartz performs the deep plane face and neck lift at an outpatient surgical center using IV sedation or general anesthesia. The surgery takes about four hours to complete. The incision is made within the hairline and all layers of the face and neck are then lifted and repositioned.
Recovery after the deep plane face and neck lift takes about one week. Patients may experience some minor discomfort which can be treated with medication. Bruising and swelling may also occur. The stitches are removed in about one week. Most patients can return to work within two weeks, though more strenuous activities should be postponed for about three weeks.
