Why Get a Lower Facelift in Indianapolis?

While aging is part of life, it can feel frustrating when our appearance starts to change. Skin on the face and neck is especially susceptible to the signs of aging, leading to skin laxity and wrinkles.

At Turkle & Associates, we can provide patients with a lower facelift in Indianapolis and correct loose and sagging skin for a natural-looking, refreshed appearance. 

We find that performing a lower face lift with other facial procedures gives patients more natural results. Most frequently, when the jowl droops, sags, or shows other signs of aging, the face is affected, too. 

During your consultation, we will discuss your desired results and consider your budget, lifestyle, and goals to determine the procedures that best address your needs.



Dr. Janet Turkle and Dr. Brandon Specht perform facelifts (rhytidectomy) to help patients look naturally rested and refreshed. Dr. Turkle and Dr. Specht use this technique to enhance your natural features, not change your appearance. A lower facelift in Indianapolis can help:

  • Reverse the effects of aging and daily stress by lifting sagging skin on the face, neck, and jowl
  • Correct volume loss
  • Address sun damage

A facelift at Turkle & Associates starts at $10,705. 

Procedure and Recovery Time 

In addition to addressing extra skin that develops along the jawline (also known as jowling), facelifts treat excess, loose neck skin, creases and corners around the jawline, and mid-face sagging. 

During your procedure, Dr. Turkle or Dr. Specht will make an incision at your temporal hairline. The incision will run along or just inside your ear and end behind your ear within your hairline. If needed, Dr. Turkle or Dr. Specht will make an additional incision under your chin, which is easily hidden. If needed or requested, we will also use liposuction for fat removal. 

A facelift typically takes 3 to 6 hours. Facelift procedures that take more time typically include other procedures, like a brow or eyelid lift in Indianapolis.

Patients should expect to need 1 week to recover physically and 3 to 4 weeks before engaging in social activities.

In 6 weeks, you’ll see the most dramatic results of your lower facelift in Indianapolis. The final results are visible 6 to 12 months after the procedure (when your skin and incisions have fully healed). After your recovery, you’ll look like a younger, refreshed version of yourself.


Facelift Types

Depending on your preferences and needs, you have 4 facelift options at Turkle & Associates:

Lower Facelift

This procedure can serve as a lower facelift in Indianapolis. It addresses deep facial wrinkles, sagging jowls, and sagging banding in the neck.

Mini Facelift

The mini facelift (sometimes called “the weekend lift”) is ideal for people in their 40s and early 50s with mild to moderate loose or sagging skin. It can also eliminate excess fatty deposits along the jawline.


A mid-facelift is a wonderful option for younger patients with no significant sagging in the lower face. The procedure, sometimes referred to as a cheek lift, can tighten skin found at the center of the face.

Full Facelift

A full facelift often involves multiple procedures to address deep facial wrinkles, sagging jowls, drooping eyelids, loose skin, and excess fatty deposits under the chin and on the neck. This combination of procedures involves a face, forehead, and lower facelift in Indianapolis, as well as eyelid surgery. 


Complementary Procedures

Facial and Neck Liposuction

Sometimes, our lower face can accumulate areas of fat due to genetics or age, resulting in unwanted facial fullness or the appearance of a double chin. We can treat this condition by using liposuction to remove excess fat from the lower face. 

After fat removal, this area often appears sleeker and has a smoother contour, helping accentuate your lower facelift in Indianapolis.

Procedure and Recovery Time 

Neck and facial liposuction takes approximately 1 hour to complete. Your physical recovery will take 2 to 3 days, and you can return to your social activities in 2 weeks. While it typically takes 6 months for incisions to heal, you’ll see results in 3 to 4 weeks. 

Facial and neck liposuction at Turkle & Associates is priced between $3,000 and $3,500. 

Eyelid Surgery

Do you think you look tired, no matter how well-rested you are? If so, you may benefit from eyelid surgery.

Dr. Turkle and Dr. Specht use eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) to correct:

  • Drooping or heaviness of the upper eyelids
  • Drooping or “bags” below the eyes
  • Shadows under the eyes

You can elect to have upper or lower eyelid surgery, or both.

Procedure and Recovery Time

Eyelid surgery takes between 1 and 3 hours to complete. You’ll need 2 to 3 days to recover, and depending on whether you treat your upper or lower eyelids (or both), you’ll need between 1 and 3 weeks to recover. You’ll see the majority of your procedure’s results in 3 weeks, but all incisions will take between 6 and 12 months to heal.

Eyelid surgery at Turkle & Associates is priced between $3,325 and $6,100. 

Brow Lift

It’s common for the forehead and brow to show signs of aging, sometimes causing unwanted expressions. During a brow lift, Dr. Turkle or Dr. Specht will smooth brow and forehead lines and reduce frown lines by raising your brows. 

Most frequently, Dr. Turkle performs this procedure by using the endoscopic technique, which requires small incisions in the hairline and allows her to move the brow into the desired position. 

Procedure and Recovery Time

This surgery takes between 1 and 2 hours to complete. You’ll need 4 to 7 days to recover physically and 2 to 3 weeks to return to social activities. You’ll see noticeable results in 4 to 6 weeks, and your incisions will fully recover in 6 to 12 months. 

A brow lift at Turkle & Associates is priced between $4,900 and $5,300. 

Considering Non-Surgical Options?

We also offer less invasive procedures than a lower facelift in Indianapolis that are designed to treat the lower face:

  • Kybella: An injection that can eliminate excess fat deposits underneath the chin.
  • Liquid Facelift: This highly personalized treatment involves different injectables, including dermal fillers and muscle relaxers, to help refresh your look.
