Conditions That a Facelift Can Treat

Facelift procedures can address common unwanted skin conditions. Below are some of the most common conditions we treat. 


As we age, our skin becomes less elastic and starts to sag. Jowling is sagging skin below the jawline or chin. Facelifts can tighten the skin and give you a more defined jawline. 

Marionette Lines

Marionette lines form like wrinkles on your face and gain their name from their resemblance to a marionette doll. They appear around your mouth as your body ages and loses collagen and elastin. A facelift will pull your skin back to stretch out the wrinkles, making your face look smoother. 

Dropped Cheeks

As you age, you lose fat in your face, making your cheeks look hollow and sag. Dropped cheeks, like wrinkles, are expected as we age, but a facelift can treat them. The procedure will lift the fat pad in the cheek, adding volume and leaving you with a more youthful appearance. 


Wrinkles are commonplace as we age and can form anywhere on your face. A facelift can easily lift your skin and reduce the appearance of your wrinkles and give you a more youthful look.

Types of Facelifts

There are many types of facelift procedures that can reduce the signs of aging. Dr. Dominic is experienced in these procedures and can provide you with the youthful complexion you desire. 

This procedure treats the entire face instead of a targeted issue. In one procedure, Dr. Dominic will remove excess fat, tighten your muscles, and lift the skin to achieve your desired appearance. 

Mini facelifts can do better at treating issues on the lower third of the face, like jowling. Dr. Dominic can also treat neck looseness, platysmal banding, and wrinkles with a mini facelift. 

This facelift primarily works in the area between the edges of your eyes to the edges of your mouth. It specifically targets bunny lines, dropped cheeks, wrinkles, and more to help you regain a youthful look. 

Upper facelifts can treat issues like wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin on your forehead. Dr. Dominic will typically stretch and lift the skin out toward the sides of your eyebrows for a smoother complexion. 

Facelift Recovery

Facelift recovery is much shorter than other cosmetic surgeries like rhinoplasty, which can take up to a year. On average, your recovery time for a traditional facelift is anywhere from three to four weeks. You will experience swelling and bruising during that time, which should fade after the first two weeks. 

Compression garments are also recommended during recovery because they increase recovery time by reducing swelling. In addition, your skin during recovery is very fragile, so you should avoid difficult or strenuous activities and hot showers. 

Facelift Results

In most cases, you can expect to see some results in just the first week. However, you’ll see full results from your surgery after your recovery phase, which is anywhere from four to six weeks. While this procedure does provide permanent results, as you age, you will start to see wrinkles and sagging skin again. Generally, most people don’t see additional signs of aging for another ten years.
