If you need to improve your facial appearance, a facelift can certainly refresh your face and make you look younger. A facelift will reverse changes brought on by aging and environmental factors, but it can be costly depending on the approach and extent of the procedure. So how much does a facelift cost in 2019.
Facelift surgery in 2019
Years ago the traditional facelift involved pulling the skin very tightly, in order to improve facial contours. However, that method often gave patients an unnatural ‘windswept’ look. In the modern era, surgeons are able to get more natural looking facelift results by elevating the deep muscles below the skin, and pulling the skin in an upward direction rather than straight back.
How much does a facelift cost in 2019
The cost of a facelift will depend on the specific circumstances of each patient. Patients with more advanced signs of aging may require a more extensive facelift, whereas those with less visible signs of aging can benefit from a mini-lift.
According to reviews on Real Self, the average cost of a traditional facelift in 2019 is $12,125, whereas the cost of a mini-facelift averages about $5,100. The price may vary significantly from the average depending on factors such as geographic location, anesthesia fees, and surgical facility fees. Consequently, patients will have to visit a board certified plastic surgeon to get an accurate estimate.
If you are considering facelift surgery, it’s important not to choose a surgeon based on cost alone. During consultation with your plastic surgeon be sure to ask about any discounts or financing options available.
