«I can honestly say Dr. Jacono’s textbook is the finest, most eloquent and comprehensive evidence based work on facelifting ever written – and I say that having co-authored a textbook of facelifting myself. Anybody who is serious about facial rejuvenation and facelifting really must read this landmark book!»
Rajiv Grover, Plastic Surgeon London UK, Former President of BAAPS
«…this is an impressive work and well worthy of the time spent studying it…I highly recommend it for your reading list and surgical bookshelf.»
Thomas Fiala, MD, MBA, FACS, FRCSC, Aesthetic Surgery Journal
«so well designed and written by Dr. Jacono on facial rejuvenation with particular emphasis on the approach to extended deep plane facelift…I highly recommend this textbook to both experienced facelift surgeons and those who are beginning their career in facial rejuvenation surgery»
Stephen W. Perkins, MD, Facial Plastic Surgery & Aesthetic Medicine Journal
«Overall, this is an amazing book that I can strongly recommend to anyone interested in furthering their knowledge of deep plane face and neck lift.»
Ozcan Cakmak, MD, Facial Plastic Surgery Journal
«This is a highly thought-provoking book for either the established or less experienced facelift surgeon. It is a rare text on this subject and a significant achievement by a single author. Nothing similar, or even as comprehensive, has been published for decades, and it is a testament to the author’s passion. Andrew Jacono’s textbook is likely to remain an authoritative reference on this subject and an inspiration for others for years to come.»

Offer Your Patients the Facelift Results They Have Been Requesting with this Landmark Work by Master Surgeon, Andrew A. Jacono, MD, FACS
Dr. Jacono’s new book: The Art and Science of Extended Deep Plane Facelifting and Complementary Facial Rejuvenation Procedures offers the practical clinical guidance and tested rejuvenation techniques that you need for your facial aesthetic practice. Facial aging involves complex, multifactorial three-dimensional changes that are often inadequately addressed by traditional surgical approaches. This book provides solutions to these aging problems with a total approach to facial rejuvenation.

In his exciting new book, Dr. Jacono fully describes the extended deep plane facelift technique that he has developed and performed successfully on over 2,000 patients. This technique uses composite deep plane flap shifts to create volumetric changes in the midface and jawline where facial atrophy occurs. Differing from lateral approaches to the SMAS, the extended deep plane facelift both enters the subSMAS plane and suspends it anteriorly,
In his exciting new book, Dr. Jacono fully describes the extended deep plane facelift technique that he has developed and performed successfully on over 2,000 patients. This technique uses composite deep plane flap shifts to create volumetric changes in the midface and jawline where facial atrophy occurs. Differing from lateral approaches to the SMAS, the extended deep plane facelift both enters the subSMAS plane and suspends it anteriorly, providing biomechanical advantage in elevating medial facial ptosis.
The book is divided into two sections. Part I focuses exclusively on the extended deep plane facelift and includes four comprehensive chapters. The initial chapter details the rationale behind this technique along with its safety and effectiveness. The next two chapters focus on surgical anatomy of the face and neck and the anatomic changes associated with face and neck aging.
The fourth and longest chapter in the book is devoted to the extended deep plane facelift technique. It provides a step-by-step description of this technique and its impact on the midface, lower face, jaw, and neck:
In the Midface, the extended deep plane facelift provides a biomechanical advantage in lifting medial facial ptosis. Release of four key retaining ligaments in the face and neck is integral to this procedure; a detailed step-by-step description of the surgical techniques for approaching the zygomatic osseocutaneous, masseteric cutaneous, mandibular cutaneous, and cervical retaining ligaments is provided.
Jawline Definition is often lost with aging, creating jowls that blunt anterior jawline definition, and involutional changes along the posterior jawline that make it appear truncated. A youthful jawline has a smooth convexity from the chin to gonial angle. Unique to the extended deep plane approach is creation of a composite rotational flap to revolumize the posterior jawline, creating greater rejuvenation.
Neck Rejuvenation. Because the neck is the area most predisposed to failure after facelift, Dr. Jacono addresses treatment of the neck in great detail. He presents a novel platysma hammock technique that has proved successful in addressing neck rejuvenation. This technique has four critical maneuvers: 1) Release of the cervical retaining ligaments that limit redraping of the platysma, 2) Platysma flap elevation medially to the anterior border of the submandibular gland, 3) Platysma myotomy inferior to the mandibular border to the fascia overlying the submandibular gland, and 4) Fixation of platysma hammock to the SCM/mastoid fascia.
This chapter beautifully demonstrates the extended deep plane facelift technique with patient photos and elegant medical illustrations to help the reader understand the general surgical maneuvers as well as the nuanced procedures that make this deep plane technique so successful. The chapter concludes with a series of long-term results demonstrating the stability and effectiveness of this technique over time.
Part II: Ancillary Procedures for Comprehensive Facial Rejuvenation contains seven chapters that address different surgical and nonsurgical techniques to enhance facelift results. Topics covered include:
- Indications for opening the midline neck, techniques for platysma fixation, and treatment of the subplatysmal contents, including the submandibular gland.
- Forehead and browlift using traditional and endoscopic approaches.
- Advanced techniques for volume
