Deep Plane Facelift Sarasota
Facelift surgery has evolved from a skin-only procedure to lifting the skin and muscles. A deep plane facelift is the most recent innovation on the superficial muscular aponeurotic system (SMAS) facelift. Surgeons and patients alike have noted that it appears to provide more natural looking and longer lasting results. It also is less invasive than traditional SMAS facelifts. Dr. Alberico Sessa at Sarasota Surgical Arts provides the best deep plane facelift Sarasota offers.
Understanding The Deep Plane Facelift Technique
A deep plane facelift is a form of SMAS facelift. During a standard SMAS facelift, the skin and SMAS structures are separated from one another and tightened separately. A deep plane facelift—instead of pulling apart the structures—lifts them together. This technique involves less trauma and maintains natural connections between the skin and SMAS that promote a more natural look.
The SMAS technique has already become the standard for facelift surgery and the deep plane facelift is likely to replace it. However, not all patients may benefit from this technique or need the amount of correction the deep plane technique can provide. Dr. Sessa frequently uses the deep plane technique for patients who qualify for a standard facelift and have moderate to severe sagging.
