Introduction to Deep Plane Facelift

When it comes to the layers of our face, deeper is better for powerful changes. Beyond the surface of our skin is a complex, deep set of layers that requires intimate anatomical knowledge to rejuvenate. Welcome to the world of the Deep Plane Facelift at Ravive Plastic Surgery, led by the skilled hands of Dr. Deepa Bhat in Tampa, FL. Dr. Bhat is ready to reveal a more youthful and naturally refreshed you. Step into our world-class office to experience a Deep Plane Facelift, where every contour tells a story of renewed vitality and lasting elegance.

What is a Deep Plane Facelift?

We’ve all heard of a traditional facelift, but what is a Deep Plane facelift? A Deep Plane Facelift is a sophisticated and comprehensive surgical procedure offered at Ravive Plastic Surgery in Tampa, under the expertise of Dr. Bhat. A Deep Plane Facelift utilizes a plane of dissection below the superficial muscular aponeurotic system (SMAS) of the midface, allowing for the treatment of key facial ligaments and maximum mobilization of the underlying soft tissues.

By repositioning the deeper tissues, the procedure helps restore a youthful facial contour while simultaneously avoiding a “pulled back” or overdone appearance. Tension on the skin is minimized, resulting in a tension-free closure, and the results look natural. The technique also allows for better correction of the midface. A properly executed Deep Plane Facelift, like the one we offer here in Tampa, can produce dramatic and sustainable rejuvenation of the lower face and the midface.

What to expect on the day of Deep Plane Facelift surgery

On the day of your Deep Plane Facelift in Tampa, meticulous attention to detail and a commitment to your comfort will define the experience. Beginning with a thorough pre-operative process at the surgery center, you will be placed under general anesthesia for your comfort.

Incisions will then be made. Dr. Bhat strategically places discreet incisions, lifting and repositioning superficial and deep facial layers to address sagging skin, tighten muscles, and enhance volume. The surgical expertise minimizes scarring, and the incisions are carefully closed. The proper adjustments will be tailored to your surgical plan.

As you awaken from anesthesia, you’ll be closely monitored, and detailed post-operative care instructions will be provided. Throughout this process, the dedicated team at Ravive Plastic Surgery prioritizes your safety, comfort, and satisfaction, guiding you toward renewed confidence and enduring beauty.

Dr. Deepa Bhat will make a small incision in a discreet location, create a pocket for the chin implant, and carefully position and secure the implant. The incisions will then be closed using sutures. After the surgery, you will be taken to a recovery area where you will receive post-operative instructions and be monitored by the medical staff.

Deep Plane Facelift recovery

The recovery phase after a Deep Plane Facelift is an important step towards achieving the results. You may experience some swelling and bruising, typical aspects of the healing process that Dr. Bhat aims to minimize through meticulous surgical techniques. Detailed post-operative care instructions will guide you in managing these initial effects, including prescribed medications for your comfort. Prioritizing rest and limiting strenuous activities in the initial days is essential, contributing to a smoother recovery.
