Facial Procedures

As we age, our faces develop fine lines, sagging cheeks, hanging jowls and may develop deep folds around the nose and mouth. It’s a common belief sagging skin is the only culprit, but the age-related relaxing and stretching of underlining muscles and ligaments are major causes.

Traditional facelifts pull and tighten the skin, but do not address the underlying structures. Not addressing the deeper layers can make the face appear stretched or pulled back. As the muscles continue to drift down, you may require further procedures.

Why Are Deep Plane Facelifts Superior?

Deep plane facelifts address the traditional facelift appearance by focusing on the muscle layers of the face. By repositioning these layers, the procedure is more effective at eliminating the signs of aging and provides a more natural result. There are no signs of a “too-tight” facelift because the skin follows the new contours of the muscle.

While it is a surgical procedure, the deep plane facelift can be easier on the patient. Since the skin isn’t pulling against the muscle, they continue to move together. This provides for natural facial expressions without tugging or tautness. Anchoring the muscles and ligaments back to where they were many years ago provides long-lasting results. Many patients enjoy looking 10 years younger than they are for the rest of their lives.

Because this procedure raises the entire facial structure, it provides a smoother, fuller appearance in the middle of the face. The cheekbones will appear higher, and it will minimize the hollows in the cheek. This reduces the need for additional treatments to address these mid-face concerns.

Go for the Gold Standard at LM Medical NYC

Many patients opt to add a neck and eyelid lift during the facelift, addressing all signs of aging at once. This ultimately creates a natural, radiant beauty in all visible areas.

Achieving the gold standard of a deep plane facelift is more technically demanding than a traditional lift, and it requires expert techniques. Dr. Lesley Rabach at LM Medical NYC is an elite double board-certified plastic surgeon specializing in facial plastic surgery and reconstruction.

I’ve been visiting LM medical for 4 years. The staff is always welcoming. The location is beautiful and modern. Dr. Morgan and Dr. Lesley are amazing physicians. They are very personable and genuine. They are open to questions and addressed all of my concerns. I have been more then pleased with my experience with LM Medical and I highly recommend this office.

Chris B.

Dr. Morgan Rabach and her staff provide top tier care and excellent service. Dr. Rabach is well-versed in the latest research. She made lots of time to discuss my dermatological history (what’s worked, what hasn’t worked, what hasn’t been tried) and all the available treatments to find the best path forward. She didn’t settle - pushing to make sure I got the best results possible. Would recommend without any reservations!

Toni D.

I have been seeing both Dr. Lesley & Dr. Morgan now for almost about three years now. Each time is better than the last. I trust them for natural results & they always deliver. What I value most is that they are never pushy! Always open, honest, and they are just overall good people.

Xavier M.

Dr Morgan and her staff are very warm and efficient professionals. She provided me with straightforward answers on three different concerns and more importantly, found the adequate treatment for me right away. A well staffed and organized team! Highly recommended.

Emily B.

The staff are incredibly friendly and so helpful. The wait times are very short, the space is clean and modern, and they're very quick to respond to questions over the phone or email. I needed a detailed receipt for my insurance and they gave me two different versions until my insurance was satisfied. The doctors are friendly, laid back, and really listen which is awesome. Would highly recommend!!
