What Is a Deep Plane Facelift & How Does It Work

This is an advanced cosmetic surgery technique designed to rejuvenate the face by addressing the deeper layers of facial muscles and tissues. Unlike traditional facelifts that mainly tighten the skin, a deep plane facelift repositions the entire facial musculature, resulting in a more natural and long-lasting outcome.

This procedure is particularly effective for correcting deep nasolabial folds and sagging cheeks, offering a comprehensive rejuvenation.

The FSIBR deep plane facelift procedure follows a meticulous process that rejuvenates the face by addressing deeper layers of facial tissues, while ensuring patient safety and comfort throughout.


Patients undergo a thorough evaluation and discussion of their aesthetic goals. Pre-operative instructions may include medication adjustments and lifestyle changes to ensure optimal healing.


Incisions are typically made within the hairline and around the ears, strategically placed to minimize visible deep plane facelift scars. The exact pattern depends on the patient’s facial structure and specific goals.


The surgeon carefully separates the skin from the underlying muscles and tissues, then repositions and tightens these deeper structures. This step is crucial for achieving the desired lift and contour.

Closing Incision

The skin is re-draped over the newly shaped contours, and excess skin is removed. The incisions are then meticulously closed with sutures to promote healing with minimal deep plane facelift scars.
