What is the Deep Plane Facelift?

At RENATA Facial Cosmetic Surgery, located in Brooklyn, Deep Plane Facelift is a surgical technique designed to address facial and neck aging with exceptional precision. What sets it apart from traditional facelift approaches is its focus on the deeper layers of facial structures and extensive tissue repositioning. By meticulously dissecting and repositioning the deep musculoaponeurotic system (SMAS) - the layer that underlies the skin - this technique achieves more substantial and authentically rejuvenating outcomes. The procedure involves releasing the facial ligaments that tether the SMAS to underlying structures and elevating the cheeks, jawline, and neck region to redefine the contours of the face.

What are the differences between a Deep Plane Facelift and a traditional facelift?

Conventional facelift procedures primarily center on applying tension to the skin's superficial layers. This often results in an unnatural tightness and a noticeable "pulled" or "windswept" appearance. Additionally, these facelifts are more likely to cause visible scarring and yield modest outcomes. The Deep Plane method, on the other hand, delves deeper into the facial structures for a more comprehensive result. By operating on the deeper planes, this technique achieves longer-lasting and more effective outcomes. Moreover, the meticulous approach of the Deep Plane Facelift ensures a more natural look, as it addresses sagging skin and also the underlying muscle and tissue positioning.

Benefits of a Deep Plane Facelift

  • Comprehensively rejuvenates the face and neck
  • Achieves more substantial and longer-lasting results
  • Enhances cheek, jawline, and neck contours
  • Creates a natural-looking outcome
  • Boosts confidence and self-esteem

Deep Plane Facelift Candidates

If you are experiencing facial and neck aging and desire a transformative solution, the Deep Plane Facelift could be right for you. However, not all patients are candidates for this procedure, as a high level of surgical skill and expertise is required. During your consultation for a Deep Plane Facelift New York Facial Cosmetic Surgeon, Dr. Renata Khelemsky, will conduct a thorough evaluation of your unique facial anatomy and level of aging to determine your candidacy. It is essential to discuss any health conditions, use of medications and supplements, prior facial procedures, or concerns during this evaluation. While a Deep Plane Facelift offers numerous benefits, it may not fully address related concerns like a retrusive chin or visible under-eye bags. In such cases, additional cosmetic procedures might be suggested to achieve a more comprehensive and balanced outcome.

Preparing for a Deep Plane Facelift

During your consultation, Deep Plane Facelift surgeon, Dr. Khelemsky, will take the time to understand your aesthetic goals and answer your questions about the procedure. If it is determined that you are a suitable candidate, a personalized treatment plan will be tailored to address your specific needs. How to best prepare for the procedure will be discussed, and you will receive detailed written and verbal instructions on what to do leading up to your surgery date.


The Deep Plane Facelift generally takes place under general anesthesia for your comfort. Dr. Khelemsky will make carefully placed incisions along the hairline and the ears which help in accessing the underlying facial structures. Great care is taken in the placement of incisions, ensuring utmost consideration for the natural hairline and aiming for optimal camouflage, even when sporting the shortest of hairstyles. Through these incisions, the SMAS layer will be released, repositioned, and secured in a higher position, effectively lifting and rejuvenating your facial appearance. The length of the procedure may vary depending on the extent of correction needed.

Results, Recovery, and Aftercare

You can expect to see initial results after the initial swelling and bruising subside, which usually takes a few weeks. The results of the Deep Plane Facelift are long-lasting, helping you enjoy a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance for years to come. However, it is important to keep in mind that no surgery can offer permanent results, as the natural biological aging process continues every year. Following a Deep Plane Facelift all patients are provided with essential post-operative instructions by Dr. Khelemsky to ensure a smooth recovery. Avoiding strenuous activities, keeping the incisions clean, and attending all follow-up appointments are crucial for optimal results.

Deep Plane Facelift

Frequently Asked Questions

The Deep Plane Facelift is a specialized surgical technique that requires a high level of skill and expertise. While it is not as common as other traditional facelift approaches, such as the SMAS manipulation techniques, its popularity is growing due to its exceptional and long-lasting results.

The procedure is performed under anesthesia, so that you will feel comfortable and pain-free during the surgery. After a Deep Plane Facelift Brooklyn patients may experience some discomfort, tightness, and swelling that are apparent in the first 2-3 weeks after surgery, but appropriate pain management techniques will be provided.

Just like any surgical procedure, there are risks involved. Dr. Renata Khelemsky will thoroughly discuss potential complications and risks during your consultation, with steps taken to minimize these risks. The most common risks of Deep Plane Facelift include bleeding, swelling, and temporary alterations in nerve function, affecting sensation or movement.

Nonetheless, it is essential to highlight that the Deep Plane Facelift presents unique benefits for specific patients, including those who were prior smokers or individuals with thin skin. The deeper lifting technique involves repositioning thicker tissues, leading to improved blood supply, which effectively lowers certain healing risks in particular patient populations.

While the Deep Plane Facelift is renowned for providing long-lasting results, it is crucial to understand that it cannot halt the aging process entirely. Like all surgical procedures, its effects are not permanent, and with time, natural aging will continue to take its course. However, it's important to note that even as the years pass, you will still experience the benefits of the facelift, as you'll retain a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance compared to if you hadn't undergone the procedure.

The cost of a Deep Plane Facelift can vary depending on the extent of correction needed and other individual factors. No two facelifts are identical. Patients with more pronounced signs of aging may require a more extensive variation of the technique. During your consultation, you will receive a personalized quote based on your unique treatment plan.

A Deep Plane Facelift is considered a cosmetic procedure, and it is not covered under medical insurance. However, financing and payment options may be available to you through CareCredit and Alphaeon.
