If you are considering a facelift, Summit Plastic Surgery is the premier provider in the Fort Wayne/Northeast Indiana region. Our surgeons have performed literally hundreds of procedures with exceptional results.
The facelift procedure itself has evolved dramatically over the years so that the results look more natural than ever. Excess skin and fat are removed, while muscles and skin are tightened, leaving a smoother, younger-looking appearance. Many patients combine facelift with other procedures, such as eyelid surgery or brow lift, to enhance results.
The facelift procedure typically takes 2-4 hours. Recovery time depends on the type and complexity of the procedure, but, generally speaking, most patients return to work 10-14 days after their facelift.
