A Complete Facial Rejuvenation

Facial surgical specialist Dr. Elizabeth Chance understands the emotional impact of seeing a face in the mirror that no longer reflects how you feel. Fillers and BOTOX can be wonderful aides, but they are temporary and require regular maintenance. For long-lasting facial rejuvenation, consider a deep plane facelift. Dr. Chance enjoys the distinction of being one of the only women surgeons to consistently deliver top-tier deep plane facelift results. 

Extensive Correction With A Deep Plane Facelift

Dr. Chance’s approach to facial aging is one centered on anatomy. Her signature deep plane facelift yields transformational outcomes that appear natural, healthy, and appropriate without calling attention to your surgical journey. The results of deep plane facelifts last longer than other facelifts because this approach manipulates deeper layers of facial tissue and muscle.

What Is A Deep Plane Facelift?

This delicate procedure vertically repositions the face. It is the most advanced facelift possible and should only be performed by a facial specialist with deep knowledge of facial anatomy and significant experience. 

When done well, the deep plane facelift lifts the fallen facial tissue that creates jowls, releases specific ligaments, and reconstructs the area to how it was in youth. There is no stretching or pulling.

How Is A Deep Plane Facelift By Dr. Chance Superior?

Dr. Chance’s preferred modality is the extended deep plane facelift, which contours the cheeks and redefines the jawline. Over the course of her practice, she has developed subtle techniques to create a balanced, beautiful face. Dr. Chance is well known for imperceptible incisions because she expertly tailors each one for optimal camouflage. She has also developed intraoperative maneuvers to reduce bleeding significantly. Reduced blood flow means less bruising, faster recovery, and better results. All these considerations are only possible because of Dr. Chance’s rigorous and specialized training.

What Are Some Reasons To Seek A Deep Plane Facelift?

If you are consistently bothered by sagging skin or an aged appearance and temporary solutions like fillers and BOTOX aren’t providing desired results, it may be time to seek a consultation with Dr. Chance. Some patients even seek a deep plane facelift in their 40s to stave off significant signs of aging in the decades to come. The best candidates for a deep plane facelift are healthy non-smokers who are prepared to handle the physical and emotional aspects of recovery. Below are some other reasons patients seek deep plane facelifts:

  • Drooping in the mid and lower face or jowls
  • Skin laxity 
  • Sunken or hollow cheeks
  • Desire a jawline and neckline refresh
