Do You Qualify for the Top Five?

The best way to know for sure if you qualify for one of the top facial cosmetic surgeries listed is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Jon Chadwell. Dr. Chadwell is not only the preferred choice for Elkhart facial cosmetic surgery patients, but he also has extensive education, experience and skills specifically catered to the face and neck areas. Here is a general description of who may be the best candidates for the top five facial cosmetic procedures: Facial Cosmetic Surgery

  • Rhinoplasty
  • Improves a nose that’s disproportionate to the rest of the face, with characteristics such as an odd-sized width to the bridge of the nose; humps, bumps and depressions on the nose-bridge; issues associated with the nostrils or nasal tip; problems breathing.
  • Eyelid Surgery
  • Corrects vision problems resulting from drooping eyelids; reduces puffiness and bags around the eyes; eradicates fatty deposits and/or excess skin around the eyes.
  • Traditional Facelift
  • Significantly helps overall signs of aging in the face and neck; improves loose and sagging skin of the middle and lower portions of the face and jowls, and displaced fat in the middle and lower portions of the face.
  • Mini Facelift
  • A less invasive version of a traditional facelift that focuses more on loose and sagging skin of the lower portions (two-thirds) of the face.
