What is a Facelift?

Facelift is a plastic surgery procedure to reduce the signs of aging from the face by surgically removing excess skin and fat, tightening the outer skin, and repositioning the underlying fat and muscle. A facelift take several years off the face of a patient and provide a more youthful and rejuvenated facial appearance. The procedure may sometimes be combined with neck lift to achieve more consistent results. The surgery primarily deals with the lower face and mid face.

If the plastic surgeon feels that brow lift or eyelid lift may also be necessary to achieve more comprehensive outcome and meet the patient’s aesthetic goals, two or more procedures may be combined. Dr. V is an experienced surgeon with specialization in facial plastic surgery, which puts her in the best position to perform this procedure in safe and effective manner. Patients in Middleburg, Leesburg, Fairfax, Manassas, Warrenton, Arlington and surrounding areas have an opportunity to receive this treatment from Dr. V.

Factors Impacting the Cost of Facelift

The cost of facelift surgery may vary from one area to another as well as from one practice to another even within the same area. The cost is a combination of various components, each of which may be influenced by a number of factors. Here are some of the key factors that can affect the overall cost of facelift:

Location of the Practice

The cost of facelift at a practice located in Loudoun County, Fairfax County, Prince William County, Fauquier County, or Arlington County in Northern Virginia is likely to differ from the cost of the same procedure in Orlando, FL. This happens because the average cost of living may vary between two states or even two cities in the same state. The cost of all kinds of products and services, including plastic surgery services will be influenced by the overall cost of living in a particular area.

Surgeon’s Fee

The skills, experience and reputation of the plastic surgeon can make a difference to the fee charged by that surgeon. Surgeons who are more in demand for a particular procedure may be short of time and may charge a higher fee. For instance, Dr. V is a board certified specialist in facial plastic surgery, which makes her an authority in the area of facelift procedure. Patients in Middleburg, Leesburg, Fairfax, Manassas, Warrenton, Arlington, and nearby areas may prefer to receive a facelift from Dr. V rather than go elsewhere.

Surgical Facility and Anesthesia Costs

The costs of the operating facility where the facelift procedure is performed can also make a difference to the overall cost of procedure. A state of the art facility equipped with the latest technologies and equipment, backed by an experienced support staff team, and offering high quality comforts and services may cost slightly more than an average operating facility. Facelift is usually performed under general anesthesia, and the cost of the anesthesiologist and their team will also make an impact to the overall cost of the procedure.

Other Costs

Patients who are considering facelift surgery, should also account for other costs of the procedure, such as medical tests, prescription medications, and any additional expenses. It is important to prepare an accurate cost estimate in advance so that there is no difficulty at the time of arranging the payment. With a correct budget estimate, the patient is a position to make an appropriate and informed decision about the choice of procedure.

Average Cost of Facelift

On average, the facelift surgery may cost from $7,000 to $15,000 in most cases, depending on the various factors discussed above. The cost will also differ depending on the extent of surgery involved, complexity of a particular case, and the estimated duration of the procedure. Sometimes a patient may just need a mini facelift procedure, which may cost much lesser than a complete facelift surgery.

The cost may also differ on the basis of the technique used, such as traditional facelift or endoscopic facelift surgery. The procedure is usually performed for aesthetic reasons, and it may not be covered under the patient’s health insurance plan. Patients should consider their financing options well in advance and may also discuss the possibility of financing assistance with the office of the plastic surgeon.
