Cost of a Facelift Surgery

The price of cosmetic facelift surgery varies widely depending on for example geographic location, the patient and how experienced the surgeon is. Cost can be more accurately predicted after the surgeon has performed an examination and developed a surgical plan. If the patient´s skin is dry and non-elastic from excessive sun exposure, the facelift procedure is more difficult and time consuming than for more elastic skin. The cost includes several different parts:
Cost Range: $7,000-$13,000

Average Total Cost: $9,500
Surgeons fee: $6,000
Anesthesiologist: $1,200
Facility fee: $1,700
Hospital fee: $600

If you combined the cosmetic surgery facelift with additional procedures the final cost will be lower since you only pay one anesthesia fee and one facility fee. The total surgical time will also be less.

Remember to take into count the experience of the surgeon and you feeling comfort with him or her. This should be as important as the total price cost of facelift surgery. Most of the times you get what you are paying for! Also remember that most health insurances don’t include facelift surgery or possible complications that come with the surgery. Many surgeons offer payment plans over several years, and there are also extra health insurance that can be bought specific for cosmetic surgery facelifts.
