Show off your youthful features.
Dr. Janet Turkle performs facelifts in Indianapolis and Carmel Indiana and has beautiful results! A facelift (also known as a rhytidectomy) is a procedure that reverses the effects of age, gravity, volume loss, exposure to the sun, and daily stress by tightening facial muscles, removing extra fat, and readjusting the facial skin. A traditional facelift focuses on lifting and smoothing the lower face, neck, and jawline.
A face lift may be done in combination with other facial procedures such as a forehead lift (brow lift), eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty), chin implant, fat transfer, or rhinoplasty (nose job). It is a highly individualized procedure that we tailor to your unique bone structure, skin laxity, and underlying muscle tone.
Face lift surgery does not improve rough skin texture, although it can be done in conjunction with procedures that do improve texture, such as laser or chemical skin peels. Our doctors perform deep laser resurfacing procedures and our licensed medical aestheticians perform our less invasive resurfacing procedures.
For those with less advanced concerns of aging, or for those who have already had a facelift and need a “touch up,” a mini-facelift may be the best choice!
A mini-facelift uses similar techniques to a traditional facelift, but incisions are generally more limited. This can even mean a shorter recovery process!
