Which tissues are important in deep plane facelift surgery?

Deep plane facelift is a surgical procedure to correct the signs of aging in the face and neck area. During this surgery, various tissues under the skin are reshaped and stretched.

The deep plane facelift surgery is based on repositioning and stretching the layer called superficial muscular aponeurotic system (SMAS) tissue and the skin above it. Of course, in order to reposition this layer, it is necessary to release the retaining ligaments, which is another important tissue. Apart from these, the sagging condition of the platysma and digastric muscles, the excess fat tissue in the neck and the position of the submandibular salivary gland are also important in terms of neck lift.

Deep plane facelift surgery is a highly specialized procedure to treat signs of aging in the face and neck area. Therefore, the surgeon's experience and skill are important for the success of the surgery. The results of the surgery may vary from person to person, so it is important to have a detailed discussion with your surgeon about how the surgery will be performed and your expectations.
