Get Ready to Transform Your Look with the Deep Plane Facelift: The Gold Standard for Facial Rejuvenation

As we grow older, our skin’s natural elasticity begins to diminish, resulting in noticeable signs of ageing. The development of deep nasolabial folds and jowls can create a tired or aged appearance, regardless of how youthful we feel. Fortunately, with a deep plane facelift, you can reverse these effects and restore a more youthful look.

If you’re looking for a solution to sagging skin and facial ageing, contact HR Plastic Surgery today. Mr Ridha, the lead surgeon and his team can help you achieve a more youthful, rejuvenated appearance. Book your consultation today to learn more about how a deep plane facelift can benefit you.

What Is A Deep Plane Facelift?

A deep plane facelift is a surgical procedure that involves repositioning the deeper layers of facial tissue, specifically the musculature and connective tissues.

By targeting these underlying structures, the procedure can achieve a more comprehensive and enduring rejuvenation of the face compared to traditional facelifts, which only address the superficial layers of skin. With this technique, you can say goodbye to the telltale signs of aging and hello to a smoother, more natural-looking appearance.
A deep plane facelift surgery is an effective and long-lasting solution for sagging skin and wrinkles on the face.

Benefits Of A Deep Plane Facelift

A deep-plane facelift is effective in addressing the signs of facial ageing, such as wrinkles, fine lines, and loss of facial volume. This makes it a popular option for overall facial rejuvenation among those seeking a more sophisticated and enduring result.

The deep-plane facelift technique offers several advantages over traditional facelift procedures, primarily in its ability to address both the skin and deeper layers of facial tissue, creating a well defined contour of the jaw and neck. This comprehensive approach results in a more natural-looking and long-lasting improvement in the appearance of the face.

Patients who undergo a deep-plane facelift often report increased confidence and satisfaction with their appearance, as they enjoy the benefits of a more youthful and refreshed look.

Who Is A Good Candidate For A Deep Plane Facelift?

A deep plane facelift procedure is usually recommended for patients who are experiencing significant sagging and ageing in the face and neck area. The procedure is not limited to any specific age group, as long as the candidate is in good health.

As with any surgical procedure, it is important to have a thorough consultation with a qualified surgeon to determine if a deep plane facelift is right for you.

Deep plane facelift can provide a more natural and longer-lasting facial rejuvenation than traditional facelifts by repositioning deeper facial tissues for improved contours and smoother skin.

Understanding the Deep Plane FaceLift Procedure

This is a surgical procedure that focuses on enhancing the facial anatomy of a patient by working on a deeper layer of the facial tissue, called the superficial musculoaponeurotic system (SMAS). This layer consists of dense connective tissue and muscles that provide structural support to the overlying facial tissues. The procedure is particularly effective in addressing excess skin, volume loss and descent in the midface resulting in jowls, in the midface and jowls, as well as improving the contours of the jawline and neck.

Healing Process

Immediately after the surgery, patients may experience some swelling, bruising, and discomfort, which can last for few days to a week. You will be provided with pain relief medication and a support garment to alleviate discomfort and reduce swelling. It is advised to keep the head elevated and avoid strenuous activity during the initial recovery period. After a week, the skin sutures are normally removed and additional after care instructions are given such as the use of a compression garment and avoiding sun exposure. Your surgeon will provide additional aftercare instructions, such as wearing a compression garment or avoiding sun exposure. Over the following weeks, the swelling and bruising will gradually subside, and the final results are realised. It’s essential to follow the surgeon’s aftercare instructions carefully to ensure a smooth and successful healing process.

How is a Mummy Makeover carried out
at HR Plastic Surgery?

If you decide to have your Mummy Makeover surgery with us at HR Plastic Surgery, this is what you can expect:


Your first consultation is a crucial part of your journey and we make it a priority that you feel at ease throughout. Carried out by Mr Ridha personally, he will take time to listen carefully to understand your goals, before examining you in the presence of a chaperone.

He will then discuss the suitable treatment options available, including the risks and benefits, recovery times and expected outcomes. Mr Ridha is happy for you to attend with a family member or friend should you feel it necessary or for additional support. 


As a Mummy Makeover consists of a combination of procedures but all require a general anaesthetic and typically involve a 1 to 2-night stay in the hospital. The total amount of time needed to carry out your surgery will depend on the specific procedures you have chosen. The full details of your procedures will be explained to you at your initial consultation. 


Recovery time slightly varies depending on which procedures you have. Most patients are considered fully recovered after 3 to 4 months but final results can take from 6 to 12 months as by this time all swelling will have resolved and the tissue settled completely.

It is important to follow the advice of your surgeon’s postoperative guidelines to ensure you recover as quickly as possible.

You need to have a consultation with your surgeon and provide details about your medical history, health status, and medications. You may have to adjust your medication schedule or stop taking certain medications entirely.

A deep plane facelift is a surgical procedure that carries some risk, like all surgical procedures. Potential risks and complications of the surgery include bleeding or hematoma, infection, nerve damage, scarring, hair loss, asymmetry, skin discolouration, swelling and bruising.

Combining a deep plane facelift surgery with other cosmetic procedures is not uncommon. In fact, many patients opt to have additional procedures performed at the same time to enhance the overall rejuvenation of their appearance. Some common procedures that are performed in combination with it include eyelid surgery and brow lift.

A deep plane facelift rejuvenates both the face and neck. Rarely, patients may only desire or benefit from rejuvenation of the face without any treatment to the neck, in which case a mini facelift may be more appropriate.

Simple oral pain relieving medication are provided on discharge. These are usually only required for the first two to five days after the surgery.
