Deep Plane Neck Lift

Home » Face » Deep Plane Neck Lift

If you’re troubled by a double chin or lack of definition in your jawline, you may consider a deep plane neck lift. Dr. DeVictor offers this cosmetic surgery to elevate the appearance of your chin, jaw, and neck, helping you achieve a more refined and youthful profile.

Comprehensive Neck Rejuvenation

A deep plane neck lift rejuvenates and enhances the appearance of the neck. Unlike more superficial neck lift techniques that primarily focus on skin tightening and minor structural adjustments, a deep plane neck lift involves lifting, smoothing, and reshaping not only the skin but also the underlying fat, muscle, glands, and connective tissues.

A deep plane neck lift can combat sagging skin and create a more defined jawline and neck contour. The deep plane neck lift is performed under general anesthesia to ensure comfort and safety. Only a small incision is made below the chin and behind the ears, minimizing visible scarring. Dr. DeVictor lifts and reshapes the entire neck and jaw structures.

Deep Plane Neck Lift Corrects:

  • Sagging or loose neck skin
  • Lack of definition in the jawline
  • Excess neck fat
  • Muscle laxity in the neck
  • Unwanted neck creases and wrinkles

Recovery After Deep Plane Neck Lift

After your deep plane neck lift, it’s essential to adhere to Dr. DeVictor’s guidance to ensure a swift recovery. Within one to two weeks post-surgery, you’ll begin to observe facial rejuvenation, although some bruising and swelling may be present. Over-the-counter pain medications can help manage discomfort during this period. Avoid heavy lifting or strenuous activities, and prioritize ample rest, preferably with your head elevated, to promote blood circulation.

Around the seven-day mark, you can gradually reintegrate into a low-impact daily routine, including returning to work if it doesn’t entail physically demanding tasks. Light exercise and activities can resume approximately two weeks after the procedure. The final results of your deep plane neck lift will become apparent within four to six weeks. While a surgical scar is inevitable, Dr. DeVictor will make efforts to conceal it beneath the jaw and behind the ears.

Benefits of Deep Plane Neck Lift:

  • Dramatic improvement in neck and jawline contour
  • Enhanced definition and youthful appearance
  • Comprehensive correction of multiple neck issues
  • Long-lasting results
  • Minimal scarring due to discreet incisions
  • Typically completed within two hours
  • Performed under general anesthesia for comfort and safety

Before & After

Deep Plane Neck Lift FAQs

Who is a suitable candidate for a deep plane neck lift?

The ideal candidates for a deep plane neck lift are individuals with sagging neck skin, loss of jawline definition, excess neck fat, or muscle laxity. Good candidates are typically in good overall health, non-smokers, and have realistic expectations about the outcomes.

Are there any risks or complications associated with the procedure?

Like any surgical procedure, a deep plane neck lift carries some risks, including infection, scarring, bleeding, and adverse reactions to anesthesia. It’s crucial to choose a board-certified surgeon like Dr. DeVictor to mitigate these risks.

Can a deep plane neck lift be combined with other procedures?

Yes, a deep plane neck lift can be combined with other facial rejuvenation procedures, such as facelifts or eyelid surgery, for a more comprehensive transformation.

How is a deep plane neck lift performed?

The surgery is typically performed under general anesthesia. Dr. DeVictor makes small, discreet incisions below the chin and behind the ears to access the neck and jawline tissues. Then, he lifts, smooths, and reshapes these tissues to create a more youthful and defined appearance. The procedure can usually be completed in about two hours.

What is the recovery like after a deep plane neck lift?

Recovery varies from person to person, but most patients can expect initial improvements within one to two weeks. During this time, there may be bruising and swelling, which can be managed with over-the-counter medications. After about seven days, you can return to a low-impact daily routine. You should avoid heavy lifting and strenuous activities for six weeks.

Will there be scarring after a deep plane neck lift?

Yes, there will be a surgical scar, but Dr. DeVictor aims to minimize its visibility by placing incisions beneath the jaw and behind the ears. Over time, the scar should fade, and silicone gel products like Silagen 100% Pure Silicone Gel + SPF 30 can further reduce its appearance.

How long do the results of a deep plane neck lift last?

The results of a deep plane neck lift are long-lasting, and patients can enjoy a more youthful neck and jawline for many years. While the natural aging process continues, the improvements achieved through surgery may last a decade or more.
