Dr. Meade: Mastering Personalized Facelifts

Dr. Meade is fellowship-trained under some of the originators and masters of these facelifting techniques. His professional development has led to adapting and applying highly functional modifications to each of these procedures, making them his own. Dr. Meade will help you choose which surgical method best serves you and your current and long-term aesthetic goals, so you can enjoy results that show the world a rejuvenated look.


The SMAS (superficial musculoaponeurotic system) lift separates the skin from the tissue and musculature layers to improve the appearance of deep wrinkles and creases. While this procedure is chosen for the most natural-looking and long-lasting results, during your consultation with Dr. Meade, he will be happy to explain why they may or may not be accurate in your particular case. If you are considering learning more about a Deep Place SMAS lift in Dallas, or the surrounding area, Dr. Meade and his team are your natural choice.

Deep Plane Lift

A Deep Plane Lift pulls together the skin, muscles, and SMAS layer. Because the facial fat can be redistributed, volume is restored to the cheeks to improve your appearance. This method can also increase circulation and correct eye drooping.

Preparing For Your Facelift

As the date for your deep plane facelift in Dallas approaches, Dr. Meade will likely ask for further tests and medical evaluations. He may ask you to stop taking certain medications and supplements that could interfere with your safety. You must also stay hydrated and avoid smoking, alcohol, and drugs.

Perfect Pairings For Your Facelift Procedure

You may pair your facelift with non-surgical procedures to enhance other aspects of the face that the surgery does not address directly. 

These can include, but are not limited to:

  • Dermal Fillers
  • Medical-Grade Skin Care
  • BOTOX Cosmetic Injections

These are especially helpful in addressing areas of the face that are left unimproved by the procedure itself. All of this will be discussed at your initial consultation with Dr. Meade.

Recovery and Results

Recovery from these procedures is a little different for everyone, and several factors must be considered. Most patients can expect minimal pain after surgery while experiencing only mild bruising and swelling.

Typically, our patients are comfortable enough with their recovery and healing process that they don't even finish a bottle of 40 pain pills. However, it is critically important that you strictly follow Dr. Meade's instructions for your post-surgical recovery. This will undoubtedly aid in you experiencing the very best results possible. For example:

  • You may have a drain to be removed the day after surgery.
  • Instructions will be provided on practicing lymphatic massaging for a few days.
  • Refrain from vigorous activity for 2 or 3 weeks.
  • Plan to wear tops that button-up rather than 'pull-over.'

You should see an immediate improvement in your face when it comes to results. However, it's important to remember that your results will evolve as the skin heals and settles in place. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle and protecting your skin moving forward can ensure happiness with your new look for many years.
