Choosing the Right Facelift for You

When it comes to facelift procedures, there are various techniques your doctor can use to achieve your desired look. Our surgeons offer all types of facelifts including Deep Plane Facelifts Mid-Facelifts.

Deep Plane Facelift Washington DC

The deep plane facelift is a surgical procedure designed to address more advanced signs of aging, particularly in the lower face, jawline, and neck areas. This technique involves repositioning and lifting deeper layers of facial tissues to achieve a comprehensive rejuvenation effect.

Unlike traditional facelifts that primarily target the superficial layers of skin, the deep plane facelift allows for a more natural and longer-lasting outcome by restoring volume and contour to the face at a deeper level. One of the main benefits is that it restores your anatomy back to its youthful state.

Key Benefits of a Deep Plane Facelift:

  • Corrects sagging jowls and neck laxity
  • Restores youthful volume in the midface and lower face
  • Improves jawline definition and overall facial contours
  • Long-lasting results with a natural appearance

Deep Plane Facelift Procedure Overview:

During a deep plane facelift, incisions are typically made along the hairline and around the ears to access the deeper facial tissues. The underlying fascia is dissected free from the skin and underlying muscles. This fascial layer is then repositioned in a more youthful position. This fascial layer is very strong and can withstand significant tension. This allows for a long lasting results with minimal tension on the skin. Excess skin is removed, and the remaining skin is meticulously repositioned for a smooth and rejuvenated appearance.

This procedure is often combined with other facial rejuvenation techniques for optimal results.

Mid-Facelift Washington DC

A mid-facelift, also known as a cheek lift, focuses on rejuvenating the middle third of the face, including the cheeks, lower eyelids, nasolabial folds, and jowls. This procedure is ideal for addressing midface sagging, hollowing, and loss of volume that can contribute to an aged or tired appearance.

This procedure involves lifting and repositioning all of the tissues of the midface (i.e. muscle, fat, skin), thus restoring youthful contours and enhancing facial harmony.

Mid-Facelift Key Benefits:

  • Lifts and rejuvenates the cheeks
  • Improves nasolabial folds (smile lines)
  • Restores volume in the midface region
  • Enhances facial symmetry and balance
  • No visible scars

Mid-Facelift Procedure Overview:

During a mid-facelift, incisions are typically made discreetly within the hairline and inside the mouth to minimize visible scarring.

The surgeon then lifts and repositions the underlying tissues, including the fat pads and muscles, to elevate the cheeks and restore volume to the midface area.

A mid-facelift can be performed as a standalone procedure or combined with other facial rejuvenation techniques, such as a facelift, for comprehensive results.
