Facelift costs can vary greatly depending on the type of procedure that a patient seeks. Facelift costs are greater for surgical procedures, compared to those which are not surgical in nature. There are also mini-facelift techniques which are in the mid-range of facelift costs. Facelift costs also vary depending on patient health and procedure specifics, their geographical location, and who performs their facelift procedure.
In 2003, the average facelift costs for a traditional facelift procedure were just under six thousand dollars. The national figures for facelift costs are averages for the cost of the procedure itself and do not include surgeon's fees, anesthesia fees, facility fees, medication costs, and the like. Anesthesia related facelift costs can range from three to eight hundred dollars depending on if the surgery requires a local or general anesthetic and if sedation is used. Facility-related facelift costs can range from six to nineteen hundred dollars. These, and other facelift costs, should be incorporated into the total facelift costs that a patient will pay.
Depending on the nature of a patient's facial enhancement desires, some may benefit from a mini-facelift or a non-surgical facelift option. One of the most important elements of facelift surgery is finding a procedure that is right for you and can safely deliver the results you seek. It is also more important to find a well qualified and experienced surgeon that has your best interests in mind, rather than one with the least expensive facelift costs.
Some patients may benefit most from a mini-facelift. A forehead lift can target this region in order to enhance the aesthetic quality of one's facial appearance. The average forehead facelift costs are about three thousand dollars. A feather facelift is a min-facelift with many benefits to enhance specific facial and neck areas. The facelift costs associated with this procedure average approximately three thousand dollars as well.
There are also non-invasive cosmetic procedures that can provide many of the benefits of a traditional facelift without some of the drawbacks and facelift costs. One non-surgical technique uses microcurrent technology to provide many facelift benefits. The average facelift costs for this procedure are between $75 and $150 per session and multiple treatments are necessary.
Because most facelift procedures are elective, most insurance carriers will not cover facelift costs. Good surgeons will work closely with their patients to determine a feasible way to cover facelift costs. Some surgeons offer direct payment plans to their patients. Other surgeons work closely with a financial group that provides loans and other payment plans to patients. Independent financial institutions also provide ways to cover facelift costs.
