Mrinal Supriya discusses the latest techniques in facial plastic surgery

Laura Livesey: Today we’re going to look at the different types of facelift techniques that exist. Can you tell us about the latest techniques in facial plastic surgery?

Mrinal Supriya: If you look at the history of facelifts, the old techniques involved pulling up the skin. After a decade of analysis, surgeons realized that it gave an artificial wind tunnel look, and the results were not sustained in the long run.

That gave a need to look at alternative techniques. And in combination, there were a lot of anatomical studies.

Nowadays the consensus is that if you address the main areas, which lead to sagging of the face, and the aged, tired, emaciated look, you get a much better outcome. And therefore, we developed the deep plane facelift

The deep plane facelift addresses the main areas, which are the muscles, and the ligaments of your face, which slacken and droop with time. This solves the underlying problem, which leads to the aged appearance of your face.

When you have a deep plane facelift, what we do is we go under the muscle, and we remove the ligaments so that we can reposition the muscle layer, in the younger, more youthful placement. At the end of it, you have a much more natural appearance where your skin does not feel tight.

At the end of the surgery, you feel more natural, you look more energetic, and the results last for decades, if not forever.

The latest technique would be, having a very good quality, deep plane facelift.
