Reshape, Rejuvenate, Renew

Our skin loses elasticity and firmness as we age, leading to wrinkles, sagging skin, and a tired appearance. A deep plane facelift is a surgical procedure that can rejuvenate your face and turn back the clock on aging. Dr. Austin Adams uses this technique to target the deeper layers of the face, lifting and repositioning muscles and tissues for a more natural, longer-lasting result than traditional facelifts—up to 10 years, compared to 5-7 years.

What Is A Deep Plane Facelift?

The deep plane facelift provides natural-looking results by lifting and repositioning the deeper layers of the face rather than just tightening the skin. This technique restores the face to a more youthful position without looking stretched or pulled. By addressing the underlying muscles and tissues of the face, the deep plane facelift can smooth out wrinkles and sagging skin while restoring volume to areas that have lost fat over time.

The procedure is tailored to meet individual patient needs, focusing on specific areas like:

  • The cheeks
  • The jowls
  • The neck
  • Multiple areas at once

It can also be combined with other facial rejuvenation techniques like eyelid surgery or brow lift for a comprehensive result.

Is A Deep Plane Facelift Right For You?

You’re likely a good candidate for a deep-plane facelift if:

  • You have noticeable signs of aging on your face, such as wrinkles, sagging skin, or loss of volume
  • You are in good overall health and do not have any medical conditions that could increase the risks of surgery
  • You have realistic expectations for the outcome of the procedure and understand that it will not stop the aging process altogether
  • You are willing to undergo a surgical procedure and follow the pre-and post-operative instructions provided by Dr. Adams

Deep Plane Facelift Procedure


Before undergoing a deep plane facelift, you’ll consult with Dr. Adams. During this consultation, he will evaluate your medical history, examine your facial structure, and discuss your desired outcome. You will also have the opportunity to ask any questions about the procedure.


The deep plane facelift is typically performed under general anesthesia. Dr. Adams makes incisions around the ear and hairline, allowing him to access the deep facial tissues. He will lift and reposition these tissues to create a more youthful appearance. The procedure typically takes several hours to complete.


After the surgery, you can expect some swelling and bruising. Some other things to consider include the following:

  • Dr. Adams will provide you with detailed recovery instructions, including how to care for your incisions and manage any discomfort
  • You’ll need to take several days off from work or other activities to allow your body to heal
    Avoid strenuous activity and excessive sun exposure during the recovery period

Benefits of a Deep Plane Facelift

Some of the procedure’s many benefits include the following:

  • The results can last for years because the procedure addresses the underlying structures of the face, which tend to sag and droop with age
  • By lifting and repositioning these structures, the face can maintain its new, more youthful position for a longer period
  • Because the deep plane facelift technique involves lifting and repositioning the deeper layers of the face, there is less tension on the skin
  • This can lead to reduced scarring and a quicker recovery time
  • A deep plane facelift can be customized to meet your specific needs so you can achieve the results you want without undergoing a more extensive procedure
  • By restoring a more youthful appearance to your face, you may feel more confident in your personal and professional life

Unveil Your Stunning Transformation

After undergoing a deep plane facelift, you can expect to see a significant improvement in the appearance of your face. These results are typically more dramatic than those achieved with non-surgical treatments such as BOTOX or fillers.

The following are some of the benefits you can expect to see after undergoing a deep plane facelift:

  • Smoother and tighter skin
  • Improved facial contours, including the cheeks, jawline, and neck
  • Reduced wrinkles and fine lines, particularly around the mouth and eyes
  • More natural-looking results than those achieved with other facelift techniques

It is important to note that the results of a deep plane facelift take time and may take several weeks or even months to develop fully. Additionally, while the results of this procedure are long-lasting, they are temporary and may begin to fade over time.
