What Can a Facelift Correct?

Plastic Surgeon Serving Indianapolis, Indiana


A facelift can dramatically improve signs of aging in the lower half of your face and neck, making you look and feel much younger and more refreshed. The procedure accomplishes your aesthetic goals by tightening muscles and removing fat and excess skin in your facial region. In many cases, you can potentially look up to 10-15 years younger after your facelift.

Facelifts are highly effective at correcting the following issues:

  • Jowls
  • Sagging areas of fat
  • Loose skin and fat under the chin and jaw
  • Sagging neck skin

It is important to understand that your facelift will not correct wrinkles and other signs of aging in the forehead, eyelids, or nose. If you wish to rejuvenate these regions of your face, Indianapolis plastic surgeon Dr. Joseph Fata may recommend a

  • Brow lift
  • Eyelid lift (blepharoplasty)
  • Rhinoplasty (nose job)

If you would like to replace lost volume in your cheeks, Dr. Fata may recommend a mid-facelift or fat injections. At your initial consultation, Dr. Fata will review these options with you in great detail to ensure you make an informed decision about your desired facelift procedure.
