Conditions That a Facelift Can Treat

During the facelift procedure, Dr. Dominic will remove excess fat, tighten muscles, and lift the skin to help you gain a smooth, youthful complexion. This process will help resolve many unwanted skin conditions such as jowling and dropped cheeks.


Jowling is the sagging skin beneath the jawline and chin. As you age, your skin loses elasticity which results in this skin condition. During a facelift, Dr. Dominic will lift and tighten the skin that’s sagging to add definition to the jawline.

Marionette Lines

Marionette lines get their name from the resemblance they make to the mouths of marionette puppets. These wrinkles appear vertically between the corners of the mouth and chin and result from a loss of proteins like collagen and elastin, which typically occur as you age. A facelift in St. Petersburg includes pulling back the skin folds to smooth these wrinkles.

Dropped Cheeks

Age also causes the loss of fat, specifically in the cheeks. This can cause the appearance of hollow or dropped cheeks. A facelift procedure involves lifting the fat pad in the cheeks to add volume.


Wrinkles are one of the most common signs of aging that a facelift can resolve. Whether it’s on the forehead, cheeks, or jawline, wrinkles can form all over the face.This cosmetic procedure can tighten and lift the skin to smooth these wrinkles permanently.

Facelifts Before & Afters

Facelift Cost in St. Petersburg, FL

The cost of a facelift in St. Petersburg, FL, ranges from $10,000 to $12,000. The complexity of the procedure and the type of facelift will determine the exact cost of your facelift. During a consultation with Dr. Dominic, he will discuss your options and the related costs.

Types of Facelifts

At Elite Facial Plastic Surgery, we provide different types of facelifts so you get the exact cosmetic results you want. While these procedures all target signs of aging on the face, they differ based on the location of the face they treat.

If you have wrinkles and fine lines in many different areas of your face, a traditional facelift is likely best. This procedure doesn’t target a specific location on the face but instead provides a uniform lifting. Depending on why you want a facelift, Dr. Dominic will remove fat, tighten muscles and lift the skin to restore your natural beauty.

If you have jowling, wrinkles, platysmal banding, or neck looseness, a mini facelift is the ideal procedure for you. This type of facelift targets the lower third of the face and the neck.

Do you have bunny lines, dropped cheeks, or wrinkles around your lips? A mid facelift targets the areas between the corners of the eyes and the corners of the mouth. With a facelift, Dr. Dominic will smooth your skin and fill in your cheeks for a more youthful appearance.

If you have wrinkles on your forehead, an upper facelift can help. This cosmetic procedure focuses on the top third of the face and primarily on the forehead. A facelift will smooth the skin and lift the skin to the side toward the eyebrows.

Facelift Recovery

Facelift recovery is about three to four weeks long. You’ll experience some swelling and bruising during the first week, but this will begin to subside by the second week. You’ll need to wear a compression garment, avoid showers, put pressure on your face, go to work within the first week, and do strenuous exercise.

While four weeks may seem like a long recovery, this is significantly shorter than other types of cosmetic procedures. A Rhinoplasty takes up to a year to heal.

Facelift Results

You can start seeing results from your facelift after four to six weeks. Some minor changes may appear within the first week, but more substantial results will take longer to present themselves. 

These results are permanent. However, you will continue aging, so you may get more wrinkles and fine lines in the future. The youthful results of a facelift last around ten years.
