Joseph J. Fata MD
About the Practice
During his years of practice, Dr. Fata has maintained a core philosophy regarding the treatment of his patients:
"I believe that I have a responsibility to do everything I can to ensure that you achieve exactly the result you want, whether you are considering breast augmentation or any other cosmetic surgery. My responsibility begins with the initial consultation and continues to the end of the recovery process. And further: once you have obtained the results you want from cosmetic surgery, we have only just begun our plastic surgeon / patient relationship, and I will always be available to help you in any way that I can."
Dr. Fata's practice encompasses the full spectrum of cosmetic plastic surgery and he has performed thousands of procedures. He has a special interest in breast augmentation and was one of the first plastic surgeons in Indiana to provide a "24 Hour Rapid Recovery Program" for breast augmentation that has allowed women to return to most normal activities the day after surgery. He has since expanded this program to include other cosmetic surgery procedures with no down time, such as the "Ribbon Lift", a variation of the "Weekend Facelift".
Dr. Fata performs a wide range of cosmetic surgery procedures in his Indianapolis office and his surgery center in nearby Carmel, Indiana, including breast augmentation (breast enlargement), breast lift, and breast reduction, and he uses both silicone gel breast implants and saline breast implants. He also performs liposuction, tummy tuck (or Abdominoplasty), cosmetic eyelid surgery, rhinoplasty (surgery of the nose), and facelifts.
