A Comprehensive Rejuvenation Procedure

Dr. Rizk’s approach to the deep plane facelift and deep plane neck lift is meticulous and tailored to each patient’s unique facial structure. In this patient’s case, he focused on rejuvenating her jowls and neck area. The deep plane technique involves careful dissection beneath the SMAS layer (Superficial Musculoaponeurotic System)2, allowing for more comprehensive lifting and repositioning of facial tissues. This method addresses sagging skin and muscle, creating a more youthful and defined jawline.

During the procedure, Dr. Rizk removed excess deep neck fat, which contributes to an aged appearance. He then skillfully repositioned the neck muscles to achieve a natural lift without the tension that can lead to an overdone look. Alongside this, a rhinoplasty was performed to refine the nose’s shape, ensuring it harmonized with the newly sculpted facial contours. This step was crucial in achieving facial balance and symmetry, enhancing the overall aesthetic result.

Additionally, laser treatment was utilized to improve skin texture, enhancing the overall rejuvenation effect. The laser therapy targeted fine lines, wrinkles, and uneven skin tone, complementing the surgical procedures by providing a smoother, more refreshed skin surface.
