Approaches to the deep plane have traditionally involved a Skoog type lower facial approach, a Hamra deep plane or a multi plane SMAS flap approach. Dr. Gentile has developed a new approach to the deep plane using Ultrasonic dissection that permits easy dissection of the facial deep plane and a complete deep plane and subplatysmal dissection that releases all posterior platysmal retaining ligaments. This technique has been used in close to 100 patients with excellent results and low complications. The technique is currently in press in the Facial Plastic Surgery Journal.
