Dr. Angela Sturm’s extended deep plane facelift will target the deeper tissues of your face to create more comprehensive facial rejuvenation than any other facelift procedure.
What Is an Extended Deep Plane Facelift?
The extended deep plane facelift is a cosmetic surgical procedure performed to create a more youthful and contoured facial appearance. This specialized procedure is known for its ability to provide more comprehensive and natural-looking results when compared to traditional facelift techniques. This is achieved by addressing the deeper layers of facial tissue and refraining from putting too much tension on the skin.
Because the extended deep plane facelift is a complex procedure requiring precision and expertise, very few plastic surgeons in the Houston area offer it. Dr. Sturm is known for her skill and experience relating to all kinds of facelift procedures, and she’s able to consistently provide quality results with this powerful technique.
When performing an extended deep plane facelift in Houston, Dr. Sturm typically uses small incisions behind the ears and/or hidden beneath the hairline. She then carefully releases several tension points in the underlying facial structure, allowing her to gently lift the layers of muscle and tissue, including the SMAS (superficial muscular aponeurotic system) layer. This allows her to precisely reposition the face's underlying structure, meaning that she can create firmer, more youthful-looking skin without any risk of an overly stretched appearance. Additionally, these adjustments can enhance the volume of the cheeks and jawline to improve the patient’s facial contours and proportions.
