If the skin on your face has started to sag, and you have loose jowls, you may want to consider a facial rejuvenation procedure. The facelift has been the most common facial revitalization procedure over the years, but there are now non-surgical alternatives available that cost less. But how much does a facelift typically cost.
A facelift or rhytidectomy is a surgical procedure that is done to correct the signs of facial aging. It typically involves the tightening of the underlying muscles of the face. In addition, excess pockets of fat are removed, and extra skin is trimmed away. The incisions for surgery are usually made in front of the earlobes and continues behind the ears.
How much does a facelift cost?
The cost of a facelift varies, because it depends on your specific aesthetic needs, and the areas of the face that hasto be corrected. A facelift typically incorporates adjustments to areas such as the brows, mid-face, and lower face. The region in which your doctor’s practice is located will also influence the cost of surgery. It’s therefore not possible to identify a fixed price, but the cost can range from $5,000 to $15,000.
However, you should never choose a surgeon on cost alone. If you are considering a facelift, be sure to consult with a board certified plastic surgeon with a great deal of experience performing facial cosmetic surgery. Also, choose a surgeon with an artistic eye, so that you will get results that look natural, instead of a ‘pulled tight’ look.
