Conditions That a Facelift Can Treat

Facelifts can address several undesirable cosmetic skin conditions. Below are some of the most common skin conditions we treat with facelifts.


As you age, collagen proteins key to your skin’s elasticity and begin to break down and cause the skin to sag. Jowling is a result of this decrease in collagen, marked by sagging skin below the jawline or chin. A facelift can tighten the skin in this area and give you a more youthful and defined jawline.

Marionette Lines

Marionette lines are facial wrinkles that appear around the mouth and are referred to as such because of how they resemble a marionette doll. A facelift can remedy this unwanted wrinkling and give your face a smoother overall appearance.

Dropped Cheeks

Along with a loss in collagen and other proteins, the fat in your face decreases as you age. This can make your cheeks drop and lose volume, but a cosmetic facelift can make them look bouncy and elastic once again by lifting the fat pad in your cheek.


Wrinkles are bound to happen as we age, and they form just about anywhere and range in how deep they appear. Dr. Dominic can use a facelift to easily reduce the appearance of wrinkled skin and create the beautiful look you want.

Types of Facelifts

If you’re looking to improve your appearance with a facelift, you have a wealth of options. Dr. Dominic has been performing these procedures for many years and can provide you with the comprehensive results you need to feel confident in your skin.

A traditional facelift treats the entire face instead of targeting a specific area. Dr. Dominic will tighten your muscles, remove excess fat, and lift the skin to help achieve your desired appearance all in one procedure.

Mini facelifts are better suited for remedying issues on the lower third of the face, such as jowling. Dr. Dominic can also use a mini facelift to treat wrinkles, loose neck skin, and platysmal banding.

A mid facelift focuses on the area between the edges of the eyes to the edges of the mouth. It is most effective at treating bunny lines, wrinkles, and dropped cheeks so you can appear naturally youthful.

Upper facelifts prioritize the skin of the forehead and around the eyebrows, treating wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging. During a typical upper facelift, Dr. Dominic will stretch and lift the skin out towards the sides of your eyebrows for a smoother look.

Facelift Recovery

Many cosmetic surgeries require an extensive amount of downtime, but recovery time for facelifts is relatively brief. The average recovery time for a traditional facelift is about three to four weeks, during which time you’ll experience some swelling and bruising. Most of this swelling and bruising should fade after the first two weeks of recovery.


To aid in recovery, compression garments are available to reduce swelling. And with how sensitive the skin around the incisions will be during recovery, you should avoid strenuous activities and hot showers.

Facelift Results

In many cases, you can enjoy the results of your facelift just one week after your procedure. You’ll be able to see more comprehensive results as your skin heals and swelling reduces, which may take as long as six weeks. While this procedure is meant to provide long-term results, the effects of aging will eventually result in the return of wrinkled and sagging skin. On average, most people are able to enjoy their results for up to ten years before signs of aging return.
