What are the benefits of a deep plane facelift?

In this interview, Mrinal Supriya discusses deep plane facelift benefits.

Laura Livesey: Can you tell me about the benefits of a deep plane facelift?

Mrinal Supriya: So the key benefit of a deep plane facelift is that you get a natural appearance of your face after surgery. It takes away the ageing changes in a very natural way. You do not look like a plastic person. Still, it looks much more refreshed, it seems much more revitalized, it looks elevated in a very natural, subtle way. You end up feeling more confident. You do not have this awkward feeling that you had something plastic done, and you’re looking unnatural. You still look very refreshed in a very natural way. It gives you more confidence.

It makes you feel that you are more presentable in a profession or a social situation, without having this awkward comment of looking artificial or plastic.

So mostly, I have a lot of patients who come back after having a non-deep plane facelift, because they don’t look natural, and they have not been able to achieve the results that they wanted…

Laura Livesey: That’s a huge benefit. It sounds like people are coming to you for that natural feeling.

Mrinal Supriya: Absolutely. That is the way things stand. As a rule of thumb, if you are above the age of 40 – 45, and you have noticed physical changes on your face, like losing the definition between your face and your neck, or the jawline becoming less distinct, you are a candidate for a deep plane facelift.

If you go for other kinds of surgery in the belief that they are less invasive, will be much quicker, with a quicker recovery, a few months down the line, you will end up where you were, if not worse than where you were.

You will most probably regret your decision of not having the correct surgery.

All of these physical changes have a positive impact on your mindset. Their confidence, their self-awareness, are improved once we address the physical changes. There would be a particular group of patients who would also benefit from a forehead lift, which is done endoscopically and repositions your eyebrow. And it can also be combined with eyelid surgery, so that overall, the ageing changes in terms of a droopy eyebrow, droopy cheeks, jaws, or droopy tissues in your neck, are all addressed at the same time. And you end up feeling a much more rejuvenated yourself after the surgery.
