Facelifts have been the gold standard for facial rejuvenation for decades. The anti-aging procedure tightens sagging skin, restores lost facial volume, and produces a visibly younger-looking appearance. A facelift can take 10-15 years off your face making it a worthy investment for many patients seeking long-term results.
Facelifts are a highly customized procedure. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the average cost for a facelift in 2018 was $7,655. However, it’s important to remember your individual surgery could be much more or much less depending on your geographic location, the type of facelift, and the skill of your surgeon.
What Goes Into the Cost of a Facelift?
When paying out of pocket, it’s a good idea to have an understanding about what goes into the price of your upcoming procedure. Some of the following items may or may not be included in your initial cost estimate. Be sure to ask your surgeon whether they have ‘all-inclusive’ pricing at the time of your consultation.
Every patient has unique needs when it comes to his or her surgery. While some may get away with a quick mid-facelift, others might need a more complex procedure that takes advanced surgical skills. A board-certified surgeon with expertise in facial anatomy will come with a higher price tag than a surgeon who’s just starting out. However, when you opt for a facelift specialist you can ensure a natural-looking outcome without complications.
Facelift Consultations Available
Hospital and surgical facility costs are typically priced on an hourly basis. More complex procedures can take significantly longer and often come with a higher price tag. Younger patients with less severe concerns can get ahead of aging at a lower cost.
Like facility costs, anesthesia fees are priced by the hour. Your anesthesiologist is there to monitor you throughout your procedure and keep you comfortable. Many patients opt to have combination procedures to save on both hospital and anesthesia fees in the long run. Complementary procedures can include a brow lift, neck lift, or rhinoplasty procedures.
Pre & Post Surgical Expenses
To ensure you’re in good overall health and have no medical conditions that may prevent you from undergoing general anesthesia, you’ll need to have several pre-surgical screenings. These can include routine medical tests and blood work. After surgery, prescription medications and post-surgical garments may be necessary to facilitate a comfortable and speedy recovery.
