Facial Surgery

Christopher Jones, MD, PC

Facial Plastic Surgery predates the development of plastic surgery on the remainder of the body and continues to develop. Older techniques of undermining,  smoothing, and lifting are being modified and improved with the newer techniques of filling with fat. Certain areas of the face will look overdone if tightening is all that is done. Loose skin cannot always be filled and sometimes requires tightening. Facial Plastic Surgery must be custom made, in each case, by two designers: the Patient and her Plastic Surgeon


Brow Lift

Aging affects the forehead and brows. Lifting the brow involves making incisions at or above the hairline to access and weaken the frown-causing muscles and lifting the forehead back up to its more youthful position.

 

Eyelid Lift

If you want to appear more well rested, an eyelid lift might be just what you’re looking for. It tightens skin and redistributes the fatty tissues around your eyes. Excess skin on the upper eyelids is easily removed under local anesthesia in the office. Call Christopher Jones MD PC in Indianapolis, Indiana, today for your consultation.

Eyelid Lift Q & A

What can an eyelift do?

An upper eyelid operation removes extra skin so that the eyelashes and upper-lid have a pleasing contour. A lower eyelid operation smoothes out the skin and fat so that there is a pleasing curve from the cheek to the lower eyelashes, improving the baggy contour that was there previously. Consult with Dr. Jones to discuss procedures that would complement your eyelid lift.

Who is a good candidate?

Anyone who is able to describe the problem with their eyelids is a good candidate for this surgery. A full consultation with Dr. Jones will help frame your expectations for the surgery.

Does it take a long time to recover?

This is not a generally a painful procedure. The upper eyelids can be easily done under local anesthesia in office. The lower eyelids may require general anesthesia to do the surgery properly. The sutures are invisible. Minor swelling and bruising will be gone in 10-14 days.

Dr. Jones will give you explicit instructions of how to care for your eyes following the surgery and when it’s appropriate to return to all of your normal activities.

Is an eye lift permanent?

Dr. Jones can turn back the clock, but he cannot stop the clock. The effects of eyelid operations are permanent but continued aging can be slowed by good skincare. Ask Dr. Jones how he can help.

Facelift

Natural aging, weight loss, and genetics create the little lines, sags, and bags that make you look older than you are. Consult Christopher Jones MD PC in Indianapolis, Indiana, if you want a surgical correction that will tighten skin and muscle that have lost their elasticity. We can help you regain a younger, brighter look. 

Facelift Q & A

What is a facelift?

As you get older, your skin loses its elasticity, supporting fatty tissue, and even some bony support. A facelift tightens the skin and returns muscle and fat to their original position for a more youthful look.

Who is a good candidate?

A facelift can help you if you’re self-conscious about the way you’re aging. You may also consider a facelift if you look older than you feel or an aged appearance is negatively affecting self-esteem. An ongoing smoking habit will disqualify a patient for a facelift.

Does it take a long time to recover?

Depending on the extent of the work done on your face or neck, expect to recover in about 2 weeks. Heavy exercise may need to be put on hold for a month or longer.

Any bruising and swelling resulting from the surgery should resolve considerably in 10-14 days. You’ll need to carefully protect your face from the sun post surgery. Dr. Jones will let you know when it’s acceptable to wear makeup again.

How long will the results last?

You can’t stop aging, but a facelift can set back the clock. You will look far younger than you would if you didn’t have the surgery. To preserve your results for longer, maintain a healthy weight and keep up a regular skin care regimen that fights aging. Continued vigilance about sun exposure is a great way to keep your skin looking healthy.


Lip Lift

As a face ages, the upper lip lengthens. A small piece of skin taken from just inside the nostrils and across the base of the center of the bottom of the nose, or columella, allows lifting of the upper lip to a more youthful level.


Neck Lift

Natural aging, weight loss, and genetics create the little lines, sags, and bags that make you look older than you are. Consult Christopher Jones MD PC in Indianapolis, Indiana, if you want a surgical correction that will tighten skin and muscle that have lost their elasticity. We can help you regain a younger, brighter look. 

Neck Lift Q & A

What is a neck lift?

Your neck skin is just as vulnerable to the effects of aging and sun damage as the skin on your face. A neck lift tightens the skin as well as the underlying muscle. 

Who is a good candidate?

A neck lift can help you if you’re self-conscious about the way you’re aging. You may also consider a neck lift if you look older than you feel or an aged appearance is negatively affecting self-esteem. An ongoing smoking habit will disqualify a patient for a neck lift.

Does it take a long time to recover?
