The extended deep plane facelift accomplishes results that go beyond what one might experience after a traditional facelift.
What is the Deep Plane Technique?
The deep plane technique—performed by Dr. Porter and Dr. Sitapara 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.
