What is the difference in cost between Deep Plane Facelift and SMAS Facelift?

  • Deep Plane Facelift usually costs more than less invasive, less complex facelift operations, such as the SMAS Facelift. Furthermore, deep plane facelift is technically more complex and involves much more surgical dissection to reposition the deeper muscles and fascia of the face, midface, cheeks and neck.
  • As a skilled facelift surgeon, Dr. Harmych performs many deep plane facelift and SMAS facelift procedures and will help you choose the most appropriate facelift procedure to achieve your individual goals.
  • Less invasive procedures often promise to be less expensive and have minimal downtime. If these less invasive facelift procedures, or mini facelifts, are selected for the most appropriate patients, excellent results can be achieved. However, in the wrong patient, the result of a minimally invasive facelift is often minimal and temporary. Patient selection for deep plane facelift procedures is important to obtaining the best facelift results.
  • The risk of revision facelift, or secondary facelift, for patients undergoing less invasive, “minimally invasive” or “skin only” procedures, is significantly higher than the cost of primary facelift. This is why it is important to consult with an experienced surgeon prior to undergoing any facelift procedure.
  • Selecting the best deep plane facelift surgeon will lower your risk of needing revision facelift, or secondary facelift and ultimately save money.


What is the cost of Deep Plane Facelift alternative procedures?

  • Mild aging (Facelift in your 40’s): Younger patients with less advanced aging considering a facelift but would like a less expensive option might consider a mini facelift.
  • Moderate aging (Facelift in your 50’s, 60’s): Those with moderately advanced facial aging may be appropriate candidates for SMAS facelift. The results are not as dramatic as traditional facelift, however, it is a less expensive option and, when performed by a facelift expert like Dr. Harmych, the changes will be significant, natural and permanent.
  • Less invasive facelift procedures, such as the SMAS facelift and Mini facelift, are indicated for patients with less facial aging and are less likely to be performed with additional procedures such as blepharoplasty and are, therefore, SMAS Facelift and Mini Facelift are less expensive.

What is the Best Procedure for advanced facial aging?

The procedure most effective for treating advanced facial aging (jowling, sagging neck skin, descending malar fat and nasolabial folds) is deep plane facelift.

Facelift, or rhytidectomy, treats the neck and lower face and improves (in order of effectiveness):

  • Sagging skin in the neck
  • Jowling
  • Cheeks and nasolabial folds

Deep plane facelift also improves:

  • Elevation of sagging malar cheek
  • Repositioning and volume correction of the temporal forehead and lateral periorbital area
  • A greater degree of improvement in jawline definition and neck contour
  • Significantly better improvement of neck banding (platysmal bands), often without the need for surgery in the midline neck

Facial rejuvenation procedures should be tailored to the individual patient to address their specific anatomy and expected results.  After thoroughly examining you, Dr. Harmych, an experienced and well-qualified deep plane facelift, mini facelift and SMAS facelift surgeon, can discuss the details of the specific operation required to achieve your best result.
