Question: I’ve heard that different facelifts involve different planes. What does this mean?
Answer: The different planes of a facelift refer to at what level the soft tissues are mobilized to allow them to re-drape and provide a more youthful appearance. For the last 20 years, we’ve preferred a variation of a deep plane face lift as this mobilizes more soft tissue and the mobilization is carried out in a plane that allows the soft tissue to re-drape in a more natural pattern.
