What is a Weekend Facelift?

Plastic Surgeon Serving Indianapolis, Indiana


A weekend facelift is a procedure that can remove jowls and sagging skin and give a gentle lift to your lower face in a fraction of the time required for a full facelift. What’s more, with the weekend facelift procedure, your recovery time will be negligible, allowing you to resume normal activities often in as little as 24 to 48 hours. Dr. Fata offers two techniques to our Indiana patients interested in this type of cosmetic surgery:

  • Through a small incision in the scalp
  • Thread Lift®/Ribbon Lift®

The thread and ribbon options do not produce the same stunning results as the incision technique, but may be ideal for patients who are experiencing only a minor amount of skin sagging. What technique is right for you is best determined during your Indiana cosmetic surgery consultation with Dr. Fata. Limitations Unlike a traditional facelift, a weekend lift will not address more pronounced signs of aging. In addition, these techniques will not last as long as more involved surgical options. However, if you have only a minor amount of sagging, a weekend facelift can offer noticeable results without the downtime or discomfort associated with more detailed techniques.
