Conditions That a Facelift Can Treat

Facelifts are generally used to tighten the skin and muscles in your face to create a more youthful appearance. The following are common skin conditions we treat. 


Jowling is the sagging of skin below the chin or jawline. As we age, our skin can become thinner and less elastic. Facelift surgery can lift and tighten the skin around the neck and jawline to create a more defined look.

Marionette Lines

Marionette lines are vertical wrinkles that occur naturally between the mouth and chin. They get their name from their resemblance to the lines on a marionette puppet. During a facelift, Dr. Dominic will lift the skin to smooth the wrinkles. 

Dropped Cheeks

Dropped cheeks are a common form of aging. The loss of fat in the cheeks can cause the cheeks to sag or look hollow. By lifting the fat pad in your cheek, Dr. Dominic will make your cheek look full and youthful with a facelift procedure. 


Wrinkles are commonplace with age, but a facelift procedure can easily remedy them. A facelift can drastically change the look of your wrinkles and give you a more youthful appearance.

Facelifts Before & Afters

Facelift Cost in Lakeland, FL

On average, the cost of a cosmetic facelift in Lakeland, FL, ranges from $10,000 to $12,000. No two procedures are the same and can vary in cost depending on the complexity of your procedure. Dr. Dominic can determine how much your procedure will cost with a consultation. 

Types of Facelifts

Elite Facial Plastic Surgery utilizes several types of facelift procedures to achieve your desired cosmetic results. Depending on your specific skin issues, we can tailor these procedures to treat your exact signs of aging. 

This facelift procedure is more general as it targets the entire face instead of a specific region like the methods below. This procedure aims to create a uniform lift to the whole face, which can make the results look more natural. During a traditional facelift, Dr. Dominic will remove fat, lift skin, and tighten your muscles.

A mini facelift treats the lower part of your face and upper neck. It can remedy sagging skin on the neck, jowling, wrinkles, and much more. 

A mid-facelift is great for dealing with dropped cheeks, bunny lines, and wrinkles because it primarily focuses on the area from the corners of your eyes down to the corners of your mouth. This method will create a natural and youthful contour on the central part of your face. 

Dr. Castellano can remedy wrinkles and sagging skin on the forehead with an upper facelift. The procedure will lift and pull the skin out toward the edges of your eyebrows, giving your forehead a smoother look. 

Facelift Recovery

Generally, the recovery time for a cosmetic facelift procedure is relatively short, at just three to four weeks. Compared to other cosmetic procedures like rhinoplasty, which can take up to a year to fully heal, the facelift recovery period is very manageable. 

After your procedure, you’ll experience bruising and swelling, which will begin to subside after the first week. You should avoid hot showers, strenuous exercise, and you should wear a compression garment to ease the swelling in your face. 

Facelift Results

The results of your facelift are permanent, but you should continue to take care of your skin and your skin’s health. Depending on your procedure, you can expect to see results within the first week of recovery and expect the full results in around four to six weeks.
