Rejuvenate and Refresh
At Aesthetic Surgery of Charlotte deep plane facelifts are a type of facelift surgery that involves lifting and repositioning the deep tissues and muscles of the face rather than just tightening the skin. This technique allows for a more natural-looking and longer-lasting result, as it addresses the underlying structures contributing to facial aging. Deep plane facelifts are more extensive and invasive procedures than traditional facelifts but can produce dramatic results that last for over a decade.
Restore Facial Contours
While deep plane facelifts are more invasive than other plastic surgeries, they yield impressive results that are more natural-looking than even a standard facelift. Deep plane facelifts improve facial contours and confidence while leaving behind minimal scarring. The results of these facelifts can last over fifteen years if taken care of properly. These procedures can eliminate most signs of aging, from light wrinkles to heavy sagging and everything in between. Adults in good health who are looking to refresh and revitalize their entire face may be good candidates for a deep plane facelift.

Your Journey to Graceful Aging
Before your procedure begins, you will be put under general anesthesia to prevent you from feeling any pain or discomfort. Charlotte deep plane facelift expert, Dr. Augenstein, will make incisions around the hairline and ears and separate the skin from the underlying tissues. The muscles and deeper layers of tissue are then lifted and repositioned to create a smoother, more youthful appearance. The skin is carefully draped back over the new contours, and excess skin is removed. Once the desired results are achieved, Dr. Augenstein will suture or glue your incisions closed, clean the areas thoroughly, and provide a compression garment to ensure swelling goes down quickly.
Perfection in Time
After your procedure, you will notice a drastic improvement in your complexion. Bruising and swelling are to be expected over the first two to four weeks but will gradually subside. Your full results should be seen in about six months once all residual bruising and swelling disappear. In some cases, the final results of a deep plane facelift can take up to a year to fully appear as the tissues continue to settle and heal. You will continue to see improvements in your facial contours and skin texture during this time.
Reclaim Your Youth
Following Dr. Augenstein’s aftercare instructions is essential to a quick and healthy recovery. Any discomfort can be treated with prescribed pain medication or cold compresses. You are advised to keep your head elevated for the first month after your procedure to prevent swelling from persisting. Do not touch the incision sites until they are fully healed to avoid infection. Most patients return to work and daily activities after about two weeks, though you must avoid strenuous activity and high temperatures.
Some mild discomfort is expected with this procedure during recovery. You will notice some swelling and bruising during your first two to four weeks post-procedure, but the discomfort should be manageable. Dr. Augenstein may prescribe pain medication or instruct you to use cold compresses to relieve discomfort.
Deep plane facelifts come with some potential side effects, including bruising, swelling, and redness. In rare cases, infection, bleeding, or allergic reactions may occur. Following proper aftercare instructions will help prevent any adverse effects. If you experience any adverse effects, contact us or your primary care doctor immediately.
