What Is a Deep Plane Facelift?

Dr. Camp performs deep plane facelifts to provide our patients with the most effective, natural-looking solution to facial aging. During surgery, he meticulously repositions the deeper facial tissues, muscles, and fat—elevating sagging structures, restoring volume, and enhancing facial contours for a revitalized yet natural appearance.

The deep plane facelift represents a significant advancement beyond other facelift techniques. Because the procedure goes directly to the source of age-related changes, Dr. Camp can lift tissues at the precise point where sagging occurs, creating superior results. In contrast, less advanced methods do not specifically target the zones of sagging tissue and can result in a pulled, less natural-looking, less durable outcome.

Dr. Camp’s Deep Plane Facelift Training & Expertise

Since establishing his plastic surgery practice, Dr. Camp has dedicated himself to delivering exceptional and harmonious results. Facial rejuvenation allows you to look as young as you feel. Achieving this result requires a surgeon with the skills to listen to your concerns, evaluate your needs, and design a customized treatment plan to reach your aesthetic goals.

With a commitment to excellent patient outcomes, Dr. Camp has honed his expertise in the deep plane facelift technique. This method is celebrated for its elegance and natural-looking results, yet it is performed by less than 5% of surgeons due to its complexity. To master this precise technique, Dr. Camp sought out global leaders in the field. He has trained with world-renowned experts in New York, Beverly Hills, London, and Istanbul, engaging in hands-on surgical training and in-depth discussions at elite, high-level facelift surgery conferences.

This unique, comprehensive training enables Dr. Camp to go beyond typical superficial techniques. At our clinic, we believe that the top-tier technical skills and thorough understanding of anatomy needed for deep plane facelifts are what create lasting, natural-looking outcomes.

By choosing Dr. Camp for your facelift, you place your trust in a surgeon whose extensive training and passionate commitment set him apart. During your consultation, you can feel confident in his ability to deliver an elegant and effective facial rejuvenation tailored just for you.

Advantages of a Deep Plane Facelift

With its focus on the deep structures of the face, the deep plane facelift delivers optimal results by lifting the skin and muscle layer together. Dr. Camp’s extensive training, including a prestigious fellowship and specialized instruction in this technique, makes him uniquely qualified to achieve transformative yet natural-looking results.

The advantages of a deep plane facelift over other methods include:

Superior Restoration of Your Youthful Contours

One of the deep plane facelift’s most notable benefits is its unparalleled ability to restore the youthful contours of your face. This is accomplished by strategically repositioning the facial tissues, ensuring the results are beautiful and enduring. More specifically, the procedure restores sagging facial tissues vertically—how we truly age—rather than employing the pulling associated with other, more limited facelifts.

The deep plane facelift requires advanced surgical training and offers tangible advantages over traditional superficial facelifts, mini facelifts, and procedures such as thread lifting. These methods do not reach the deeper layers of the face or address the root cause of facial sagging. This means they simply cannot match the results of a skillfully performed deep plane facelift. The expertise to get into the right facial plane is the differentiator that achieves superior results for our patients.

Dramatic Yet Natural-Looking Results

Perhaps counterintuitively, the deep plane facelift approach is the best way to get natural results and avoid the dreaded windswept or “pulled” look sometimes associated with facelifts.

As already mentioned, the deep plane facelift focuses on vertical lifting. By targeting the deeper layers of the face, the procedure rejuvenates the facial structure in a way that respects your natural anatomy, resulting in a balanced, natural-looking lift.

Long-Lasting Results

This technique delivers long-lasting outcomes by addressing the structural aspects of aging. Notably, the deep plane facelift addresses the spot where aging occurs—not by merely pulling the tissues. The result is a more effective lift that is under less strain and, therefore, holds up over time. You can enjoy your rejuvenated appearance for years to come, with results that age naturally and gracefully.

The Deep Plane Facelift: A Step-by-Step Guide

Here’s what you can expect during the deep plane facelift process:

Initial Consultation

  • Dr. Camp will thoroughly evaluate your facial structure and skin quality and discuss your aesthetic goals with you.
  • Together, you’ll develop a customized surgical plan that addresses your unique concerns and objectives.

Day of Surgery

  • Anesthesia: The procedure is performed under general anesthesia. Dr. Camp has crafted his anesthesia protocol to create a smooth, consistent patient experience. This protocol minimizes the use of narcotics; limits nausea, constipation, and blood pressure concerns; and facilitates a faster wake-up and recovery process compared to standard general anesthesia used in more invasive hospital surgeries.
  • Precision Technique:
    • Strategic incisions are made within the hairline and natural creases of the skin to minimize visible scarring.
    • Key ligaments are gently released to allow repositioning without creating skin tension.
    • The facial muscles and fat are skillfully repositioned to restore youthful volume and contour to the cheeks and midface.
    • Excess skin is delicately redraped over the uplifted contours, ensuring a smooth, natural look without overtightening.
    • Dr. Camp employs expert suturing methods to secure the new facial positioning, promoting healing and longevity of the facelift results.
    • Fine adjustments are made to ensure symmetry and balance.

As you awaken from the anesthesia, Dr. Camp’s skilled team will closely monitor your comfort and well-being, ensuring a smooth transition from the operating room. You’ll return home the same day under the care of a family member or friend.

Recovery and Beyond

Throughout your procedure, Dr. Camp minimizes tissue trauma, resulting in less bruising and swelling during recovery.

Here’s what you can expect during your recovery:

  • Aftercare: You’ll be prescribed medication to manage discomfort and given detailed instructions to guide your recovery.
  • Healing Timeline:
    • Minimal bruising and discomfort are expected, with most patients experiencing a swift reduction in swelling.
    • Recovery times may vary, but most patients can resume normal activities and return to work within 2 weeks.
