Facelift Before & After Photos

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 jowls or draping lower facial skin.

Over time, the skin may lose volume – a process called atrophy – or increase in size, called hypertrophy – which is why repositioning both the SMAS and Platysma layers will help defy the effects of gravity and promote the ultimate agelessness. Then, once treated, they contribute immensely to an overall anti-aged appearance.

One of the biggest benefits Deep Plane Facelift offers is a newfound vitality.

Some other benefits are:

Diminishes wrinkles

Skin is lifted vertically to counteract sagginess

Cheekbones and cheek structure is enhanced

Restores volume

Appearance of lower face, jowls and nasolabial folds are improved

Defines the whole jawline
