Have saggy jowls and loose neck skin? Has age and gravity taken away your once sharp jawline and given you a wattle under the chin? Facelift surgery may be for you. A facelift is a plastic surgery procedure that primarily tightens and lifts the neck and jowl area…reversing the effects of gravity and time. Dr. Eppley in Indianapolis performs natural facelifts that avoid the 'pulled too tight' look that many patients fear. No one want to look like they have had surgery. Facelifts are often performed with other facial procedures, such as eyelid tucks (blepharoplasty) and browlifts, for a more total facial rejuvenation.

Facelifts are done in a variety of ways but, most importantly, they should be tailored to your problem and lifestyle needs. For less amounts of jowl and neck sagging in younger patients, a limited facelift (short scar facelift, mini-facelift) may only be needed. Dr. Eppley performs a smaller type of facelift for these patients that is completed in around an hour, has no drains or sutures to remove, and takes only a week for full recovery. These ‘tuck-up’ facelifts are great for freshening your appearance with minimal downtime.
