Deeper Repair, Natural Results

As our faces age, it’s not just the skin that begins to lose its youthfulness. The underlying soft tissues are also affected; they lose volume and tautness. A global approach to facial rejuvenation leads to a refreshed, natural, youthful appearance. Our Boston deep plane facelift is a necessary part of a surgeon’s armamentarium to optimize results.

What Is A Deep Plane Facelift?

deep plane facelift does not separate the skin from the underlying muscle and fascia-supporting layer. Both layers are elevated and repositioned as a composite. Doing so enhances the blood supply to the skin, rejuvenates in a more comprehensive fashion, and repositions the soft tissue layers in a single vector.

Deep Plane Facelift vs. Traditional Facelift

traditional facelift repositions the skin and deeper tissue separately, which can limit the tension that can be placed on the tissues. In contrast, a deep plane facelift adjusts the skin and lower layers together, and the tension is put on the underlying fascia and muscles for a very natural result.

Is A Deep Plane Facelift Right For Me?

A deep plane facelift is a great option for anyone looking to take years off of their appearance with a long-term solution. Great candidates are in generally good health and should be at or close to their goal weight. If you’d like to find out if you’re a good candidate for a deep plane facelift Boston plastic surgeons at Clareo Plastic Surgery can address that and answer any questions you may have during a consultation.

Consultation And Preparation

We want to ensure our patients are well-informed about any surgery they are considering. At a consultation, we will discuss the procedure in detail, learn about your health history, and perform a comprehensive facial examination. Prior to the surgery, you will need to pause certain medications, refrain from alcohol, and quit smoking.


Deep plane facelifts are typically performed under general anesthesia and last two to four hours. Incisions will be located in inconspicuous areas such as within the hairline, behind the ear, and within the contours of the front of the ear. The healed incisions will not be noticeable at a conversational distance.

Results, Recovery, And Aftercare

You will likely experience some discomfort or pain for a day or two after surgery, and swelling lasts one to two weeks. Following your surgeon’s post-surgery instructions will help ensure proper healing. For most patients, healing and subtle changes continue for several months, and final results are typically seen around six months.

Deep Plane Facelift FAQs

Deep plane facelifts are becoming more common with plastic surgeons and patients due to their natural-looking results. Be sure to choose a surgeon who has experience and training with this technique for optimal outcomes.
No pain will be felt during the surgery since this method is typically performed using general anesthesia. Most patients feel some discomfort for a day or two after the procedure, which typically resolves on its own and can be aided with over-the-counter painkillers.
Risks are involved with any surgery and may include bleeding, bruising, or swelling. Very rare risks associated with deep plane facelifts include nerve damage, numbness, or hematoma.
While, eventually, natural aging will continue to affect the appearance of the face, the youthful results of a deep plane facelift typically last up to ten years or longer.
Most of our deep plane facelift patients are in their 40s, 50s, and 60s since this is the point where signs of aging are significant, but there is still a good amount of elasticity in the face.
The cost of a deep plane facelift is individualized and can depend on what adjunct procedures, such as blepharoplasty, lip lift, and fat grafting, are performed at the same time.
