Welcome to Boston Center for Plastic Surgery, your destination for advanced aesthetic treatments. Among our comprehensive array of custom services, we specialize in the deep plane neck lift, the most advanced procedure to address signs of aging in the neck area.

What is a deep plane neck lift?

A deep plane neck lift is a highly specialized surgical procedure that aims to rejuvenate the neck area by targeting its deeper layers of tissues. This technique stands out from traditional neck lifts, primarily focusing on skin tightening. 

The deep plane neck lift goes a step further - it addresses the underlying muscles and connective tissues, not just the surface skin.

Doing so achieves a more comprehensive and natural-looking result, providing a more refined, youthful neck contour. This procedure offers an effective solution for those dealing with sagging neck skin or a lack of definition due to aging or weight loss. It’s a powerful tool in the arsenal of facial rejuvenation, contributing to overall facial harmony.

Benefits of a deep plane neck lift

The deep plane neck lift offers several advantages:

Improved contour

This procedure goes beyond skin tightening, working on the deeper tissues of the neck. It enhances the definition of the neck and jawline, providing a more sculpted and defined look. This can greatly improve the overall balance and proportions of the face.

Long-lasting results

By targeting the structurally stronger deep tissues, the deep plane neck lift ensures that the results are more stable and enduring compared to traditional neck lifts. This means patients can enjoy their rejuvenated appearance for a longer period.

Natural aesthetics

One of the key advantages of the deep plane neck lift is its ability to produce a natural look. It avoids the overly tight appearance that can sometimes result from traditional neck lifts, ensuring that the outcome enhances your features without making them look artificial or “worked on.”

Reduced signs of aging

The deep plane neck lift is particularly effective at reducing visible signs of aging, such as sagging skin, fat accumulation, and muscle banding in the neck. This can lead to a significantly younger and fresher appearance.

What are the advantages of a deep plane neck lift?

  • Increased confidence: With the improved aesthetic, patients often experience a boost in self-confidence and self-esteem. Looking good often translates into feeling good, which can have positive effects on various aspects of your life.
  • Safety: When performed by a skilled and experienced surgeon, the deep plane neck lift is a safe procedure with a low risk of complications. This adds to the peace of mind for patients opting for this procedure.
  • Quick recovery: While recovery times can vary, most patients find that they can return to their normal activities relatively quickly after a deep plane neck lift. This makes the procedure convenient for those with busy schedules.

Who can benefit from a deep plane neck lift?

Ideal candidates for a deep plane neck lift are individuals experiencing moderate to severe sagging in the neck area, noticeable muscle banding, or a lack of definition in the jawline due to aging or weight loss. These individuals should be in good overall health, non-smokers, and possess realistic expectations about the results.

What to expect from a deep plane neck lift procedure?

Under general anesthesia, the deep plane neck lift involves making small incisions behind the ears and under the chin. These incisions allow access to the deeper neck tissues. Using specialized techniques, the muscles are tightened, and the skin is repositioned to create a smoother and firmer neck contour.

Post-procedure care and recovery

Following the procedure, patients may experience mild swelling and discomfort, which typically diminish within a week. We provide detailed aftercare instructions and schedule follow-up visits to monitor your healing process. Most patients can return to their normal activities within two weeks.
