If you’ve made the decision to have a facelift, one of the major questions you’re likely to have about the procedure is – How much does a facelift cost. Since a facelift is an elective procedure, it will also be helpful to research financing options.
What exactly is a facelift?
A facelift or rhytidectomy is a surgical procedure that is done to reduce signs of aging on the face and neck. It typically addresses sagging facial skin, creases around the nose and mouth, and jowls.
How much does a facelift cost?
Based on 2018 statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the average cost of a facelift is $7,655. However, the cost can vary greatly from patient to patient depending on the extent of the procedure, and their aesthetic goals.
What affects the cost of a facelift?
Factors such as the length of the procedure, anesthesia fees, skill and expertise of the surgeon, and surgical facility fees, can all impact the cost of a facelift. In addition, the cost of facelift surgery is usually higher in large metropolitan areas such as Los Angeles and New York.
When contemplating facelift surgery patients should not look at cost alone, because it is extremely important to consider the value and service being provided by the plastic surgeon.
Facelift surgery is not the same for every patient, so it’s important to consult with a board certified plastic surgeon, to determine the procedures needed to refresh your face. The surgeon will be able to provide a personalized estimate, so that you know exactly what you’re paying for.
