It’s called the Deep Plane Facelift because it works by gently revealing the anatomical plane between the muscles, the skin’s plasma, and fibrous tissue, known as the SMAS, and then uniquely lifts all elements vertically for an immediate result. By working under the muscles, it means the skin will maintain a sense of naturalness and won’t look too tight or stretched – and of course, our top Harley Street surgeon, Dr Yannis, will ensure tension-free movement with any of his facelift procedures.
Dr Yannis often recommends this procedure because of it’s longevity and as it works on the SMAS layer (the Superficial Musculo-Aponeurotic System) – which is essentially a sheet of tissues, collagen and elastin fibres and is located between the fat and deep dermal layers of the skin – and the platysma in the neck – and delicately lifts all these deep elements, rather than just lifting the skin that traditional Facelifts do.
The Platysma is an extension of the SMAS that extends down to the neckline where it becomes a separate muscle – and like all muscles, they weaken over time, leading to draping lower facial skin known as jowls.
So, using this technique, Dr Yannis can create a lift that looks natural, still gives you the dramatic age-defying transformation you want and can withstand the future signs of ageing or gravity.
Finding a Facelift specialist who will perform your operation should be a non-negoiatable when it comes to Plastic Surgery. Knowing Dr Yannis is a specialist in Facelifts and has been performing them for over over twenty years may help give you the peace of mind you need when trusting someone with your face.

SMAS Facelift works on a similar level to the Deep Plane Facelift and delicately reveals the SMAS layers of skin. However, compared to the Deep Plane Facelift that moves the skin and muscle as one to maximise facial harmony, the SMAS Facelift separates the SMAS layer of skin and the superficial fat, so both can be improved as separate entities. Depending on your facial composition and severity of laxity, Dr Yannis will expertly examine your appearance to identify which facelift will give you the best results.
The mini facelift is suited to those looking for a subtle rejuvenation with minimal downtime. It’s ideal for patients looking to rapidly offset the early signs of ageing, or the worsening of jowls or skin laxity issues before they develop further.
The thread face lift is one non-surgical route to consider, especially if you’re considering a transformation without the invasiveness of surgery. Our Soft Thread Lift means you can achieve your dream appearance, improve the appearance of wrinkles and boost collagen production for up to a year afterwards.
