What is a deep plane facelift?

The deep plane facelift uniquely addresses and tightens the underlying structure of the skin, the SMAS (Superficial Musculoaponeurotic System). This network of muscle and connective tissue runs under the skin but over the facial muscles, forming the framework of the face.

Ideal candidates for a deep plane facelift are older patients with more severe skin laxity. However, younger patients often greatly benefit from a deep plane facelift as well. Dr. Afrooz will discuss your aesthetic goals and concerns with you and determine if you’re a candidate for a deep plane facelift. Candidates for a facelift should meet the following requirements:

  • Are generally in good health
  • Have no significant medical conditions
  • Do not smoke
  • Are experiencing sagging in the cheeks, jaw, and neck area
  • Have a double chin, prominent jowls, and a poorly defined jawline
  • Have sunken cheeks and facial areas from a loss of facial volume
  • Have realistic expectations about what this procedure can achieve for them


A deep plane facelift is a popular procedure because of its many benefits, including:

  • Lifted, tighter skin and a rejuvenated face
  • Eliminated jowls and double chin
  • As much as ten years taken off the face
  • Reduced or erased wrinkles and heavy lines
  • Less skin trauma than other facelift procedures
  • Greater definition of the jawline, neck, and cheekbones
  • Natural-looking results
  • Restored facial volume
  • Boosted confidence and self-image
