If you are considering a facelift, one question you will certainly want to ask your plastic surgeon is – how much does a facelift cost? Finding out the cost of a facelift will help you plan for surgery because it’s an elective procedure and therefore not covered by most health insurance plans.
What Is A Facelift?
A facelift, known medically as rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure designed to reduce common signs of aging and achieve a more youthful appearance. Deep wrinkles and creases, sagging facial skin, jowls, and loose skin on the neck, can all be addressed with a facelift.
Some patients may require a full facelift, while others can benefit from a less extensive option like the ExpresS-Lift. The ExpresS-Lift is a minimal incision facelift that rejuvenates the lower face and neck.
How Much Does A Facelift Cost?
According to the latest statistics by the American Society Of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), the average cost of a facelift is $7,467. However, the price quoted does not include associated costs such as anesthesia fees and surgical facility fees.
A facelift is customized to fit the unique needs and aesthetic goals of each patient, so the exact cost will vary based on the type of procedure being done. Different techniques can be used to perform a facelift, and more advanced methods are typically more expensive.
Other factors that affect the cost of facelift surgery include:
- Skill and experience of the surgeon
- Additional treatments
- Geographic location
A facelift may also include additional treatments such as a brow lift, eyelid lift, or neck lift. Although adding other cosmetic procedures will increase the overall cost of surgery, it is less expensive than doing the procedures separately.
During your facelift consultation, your plastic surgeon will perform a comprehensive analysis of your face, and create a customized treatment plan to determine the exact cost of your facelift.
