Information on the Cost of Facelift Surgery
Facelift cost can vary from one surgeon to another as well as the geographical region where he or she operates.
When comparing prices it is best to visit more than one plastic surgeon and obtain all of the cost information associated with a facelift, preferably in writing. Most costs will be associated with a number of factors, including:
- Surgeon's fees
- Surgical facilities cost
- Anesthesia fees
- Pre-surgical tests, x-rays and treatment plans
- Aftercare medications, surgical garments and other services
- Additional and/or touch up treatments
It is important not to choose a plastic surgeon based on the cost of facelifts surgery alone. Undergoing a facelift with an experienced specialist who is confident and has helped hundreds of other patients achieve remarkable aesthetic results is the best choice for patients considering this type of plastic surgery procedure.
Most facelift procedures are not covered by health insurance carriers; however patients have a number of different options when it comes to financing their treatment. Many plastic surgeons offer in-house payment plans and/or refer patients to financial institutions that they are partnered with.
Generally, the cost of a facelift procedure can range from $6,000 to $15,000 or more for patients combining more than one treatment in order to undergo a full facial transformation.
In fact, many patients decide to undergo additional facial surgery procedures at the same time, which often include eyelid surgery, forehead lift, rhinoplasty, chin augmentation, facial implants and anti aging skin care treatments, such as Juvederm, Botox and Restylane. This is because undergoing more than one procedure often leads to remarkable makeover results and helps lower the cost of each individual enhancement, including rhinoplasty cost.
