What Factors Influence the Cost?
As with any type of surgery, there are three main factors that contribute to the overall cost of the surgery:
- The surgeon’s experience and expertise. More experienced and more highly sought after surgeons generally have higher rates for their skill and expertise.
- The geographical location of the surgeon’s office. Like the cost of living, the cost of surgical care varies from state to state and region to region.
- The amount of work that you need to have done. All surgeries are customized for your own particular needs. Generally, the more work that needs to be done, the higher the cost of the procedure.
In addition to these three factors, the fees you pay will include all of the following:
- Surgeon’s fees
- Hospital or surgical center costs
- Anesthesia fees
- Post-surgical garments
With all of these things in mind, the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery reported that in 2018, the cost of a Facelift ranged from $7700 to $11,780. Patients should also bear in mind that most insurance plans do not cover the cost of facelift surgery nor its complications. However, most providers have financing plans that will make this confidence-building, time-reversing procedure attainable for their valued patients.
