Deep plane face lifts and minitucks
There are two big types of face lift — deep plane facelifts and deep plane minitucks. In a deep plane facelift, the surgeon adjusts the skin and the deeper tissues of the face, and lifts the fatty tissues in the neck area. Sometimes the surgeon will shave the backs of the two of the salivary glands to improve the look of the patient’s cheeks. He or she can tell you if this will work in your case. You should be able to get back to your life within two weeks, but it may be longer than that before your face looks the way you want it to.
In the deep plane minituck, the surgeon lifts the muscles, connective tissue and fatty tissue under the skin of the cheeks and creates a naturally youthful look. This works in cases where there’s loose skin around the midface, neck and near the mouth, but less fat around the jowls.
Charlotte’s most experienced cosmetic surgeon
Dr. Sean Freeman is the best facial plastic surgeon in Charlotte. His “SignatureLift” is intended specifically for younger patients who don’t need a deep plane facelift, or who’ve already had one. It can be performed under local or general anaesthesia, and there is less swelling and bruising afterward. Sutures may be visible for five or six days, unless they’re hidden by the patient’s hair. Dr. Freeman has devoted himself to facial plastic surgery and nonsurgical cosmetics since 1988 and has been certified by two different surgery boards.
