A face lift is a surgical procedure performed by a plastic surgeon where excess fat is removed and muscles in the face are tightened, revealing more youthful-appearing facial skin.
Face Lift Cost
Face lift costs vary with surgeons and by location. The average total cost of a face lift surgery is between $6,000 and $15,000. This cost includes the surgeon’s, the anesthesiologist’s, and the hospital’s fee.
Some patients can end up paying up to $25,000 for a face lift plastic surgery that is performed in connection with another procedure. Other procedures that can be done in conjunction with face lifts include eyelid surgeries (blepharoplasty), forehead lifts (brow lifts), nose surgeries (Rhinoplasty), chin surgeries, facial implants, and skin treatments.
If all the procedures are conducted simultaneously, the cost will be lower because there will be only one combined surgeon, facility and anesthesia fee, and it would require less total surgery duration. To cover all these costs, most plastic surgeon’s offer patients financing options.
What is a Mini Face Lift?
A mini facelift is a cosmetic surgery procedure that is relatively new in that it tightens the facial skin and diminishes the look of wrinkles, making patients appear younger-looking. It is painless and carries less risk than a full face lift.
It can be over and done within an hour. It has adopted the nickname “Weekend Facelift,” as it can be done over the weekend and has patients back to work by Monday morning.
Mini Face Lift Cost
Mini face lift costs are between $1,300 and $1,800, depending on the physician and location. It is another elective surgery procedure not covered by health insurance, so check with the doctor concerning any financing options.
What is a Laser Treatment?
A laser treatment is a non-surgical approach to surgical face lifts. It does not require any incisions to be made and instead, uses a light beam to destroy the outer layer of the face, stimulating new growth of collagen cells, revealing new skin.
It also tightens the skin, leaving patients with fewer lines and wrinkles. Some risks include minor discolorations and sensitivity of the face after treatment, but those side effects will soon dissipate within 2 weeks.
Laser Treatment Costs
Fraxel laser treatment for skin resurfacing costs between $1,000 for 1 treatment, up to $5,000, depending on the number of treatments needed to clear up acne, skin blemishes, wrinkles, skin laxity and other skin irregularities.
