Experience the Results You Deserve

While the facelift is easily one of the most popular cosmetic procedures performed today, the deep plane facelift takes things a step further, creating incredible results that will extensively correct facial aging and restore your youthful glow in exciting ways. Dr. Porter calls upon decades of experience and extensive training to create results that will leave you looking and feeling more youthful than you’ve looked and felt in years. When you’re ready to learn more about how this technique can create the results you know you deserve, reach out to Chevy Chase Facial Plastic Surgery in Bethesda, Maryland and speak with a member of our team to set up your informative consultation today.

What is the Deep Plane Technique?

The deep plane technique—performed by Dr. Porter at Chevy Chase Facial Plastic Surgery—is the most effective way to tighten the jawline and lift the midface and cheek areas. With this technique, patients in their 50s and above can restore balance to their faces and improve the look and appearance of the nasolabial folds. 

This technique involves fully releasing the SMAS, a connective tissue layer under the skin. Unlike face and neck lifts performed at other practices, by releasing the anchor points of this layer, our surgeons are able to achieve a much more powerful lift. Since there is no tension put on the skin during the closure, the deep plane technique allows us to achieve consistently natural results.

Our Surgical Technique

In most cases, the surgeons at Chevy Chase Facial Plastic Surgery will extend this deep plane technique into the neck to tighten the platysma muscle and achieve an elegant neckline. This is done at the same time as the deep plane facelift and is commonly referred to as a lower face and neck lift. By correcting both the lower two-thirds of the face and neck at the same time, we are able to achieve dramatic improvements in our patients’ profiles. The deep neck lift also allows our surgeons to contour a fatty layer in the neck that is not accessible with simple liposuction procedures.

Why Consider the Deep Plane Facelift?

Patients undergoing a deep plane face and neck lift can expect:

  • Well-hidden incisions around the natural curves of the ear and into the posterior hairline (sometimes referred to as a “ponytail lift”)
  • Substantial correction of facial and neck lines and wrinkles, including the nasolabial folds
  • Lifting of the corners of the mouth to improve the appearance of “marionette lines”
  • Lifting of the cheeks and jowls
  • Significantly improved neck contour and appearance
  • Enhanced jawline definition
