The deep plane minituck
Every part of the face needs different procedures in order to make it look younger. For the neck, there’s the neck lift. There are two different forms of eyelid surgery. And for the midface area, there’s the deep plane minituck. This procedure corrects sagging skin and loss of volume in the midface.
The surgeon makes an incision around the ear, lifts the connective tissue under the skin of the cheeks and releases the ligaments. This lifts the lines of the jaw, jowl and mouth. The fat under the skin of the upper cheek may also be lifted to gives the face a younger look. You can get back to your life within two weeks, if you follow your doctor’s advice on recovery. Wait for the swelling to go down before you decide if you like your new look.
