How long will deep plane facelift surgery results last?

Mrinal Supriya discusses how long deep plane facelift results last

Laura Livesey: After a deep plane facelift, do the results last a long time? I mean, after you’ve had the treatment, will you have to have another treatment?

Mrinal Supriya: That’s a very good question, and it’s a question that my patients ask me all the time.

If you have a good quality, comprehensive deep plane face and neck lift done by a competent surgeon, the results should practically last forever.

If you imagine yourself ten years down the line, after having a deep plane facelift, versus yourself not having a deep plane facelift, you will always look much fresher, and much more rejuvenated ten years down the line. It does not mean that your face and your body will not age with time. But the signs of ageing will never be as prominent in your case if you have had a deep plane facelift…

Different facelifts achieve different results. Make sure you choose the right one for you


It is important to understand that the idea of doing a deep plane facelift in most patients is that it should be once in a lifetime event.

You should not require another comprehensive deep plane facelift if you have had a good quality one done.

Laura Livesey: Okay, great. And is that different than from a skin lift or SMAS lift?

Mrinal Supriya: Yes, this is one of the key differences, and that’s why I practically never do a skin lift. If you get the skin lift done, the results are not going to last for more than a year.

And even in that situation, you, for the first year, you are going to look artificially tight. You will not get a natural lift. With the SMAS lift, it is intended to last just for a few years in someone who is in their early 30’s or late 30’s at the most.

The idea is to help them tide over that period without having major surgery. But later down the line, after some time, they are going to require a deep plane facelift if they wish to have proper rejuvenation of their face.
