Are you interested in undergoing a facelift procedure, but nervous about how much it might cost?

We get it. That’s why we’ve covered how much a facelift costs, including how to tell if it’s time to consider this surgical solution for sagging skin and deep facial wrinkles.

How Much Does a Facelift Cost?

Surgical fees at the Boca Raton Plastic Surgery Center may range from $6500 or more, depending on the extent of the facelifting procedure and any additional treatments required or recommended such as laser resurfacing or eye lift surgery. Generally fees are quoted after a full examination and consultation in our office. These fees will include the surgeon’s procedure fee, as well as the facility fee and anesthesia fee. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeonsthe average cost of a facelift procedure is about $7,655. This fee – which is based on 2018 data – does not include fees associated with the surgical center, anesthesia, and prescription medications. Additionally, this average can be affected by the city where the surgery is performed, as well as the experience levels and credentials of the plastic surgeon performing the surgery.

The final cost of your facelift procedure is usually determined at the end of your facelift consultation.

What’s Involved with a Facelift?

The facelift procedure involves making carefully hidden surgical incisions just behind the ears and within the hairline. These access points allow your plastic surgeon to access the drooping muscles that may be exacerbating the appearance of sagging skin, wrinkles, and fine lines. Your plastic surgeon will reposition these muscles to a more youthful place, which can help correct your most obvious wrinkles and lines. 

Your plastic surgeon may also opt to remove the excess skin left over after repositioning your facial muscles.

What’s a Good Age for a Facelift?

There’s no magic age for getting a facelift, as the key signs you’re ready for this surgical solution aren’t always related to your age. These key signs include:

  • Moderate to severe skin laxity issues
  • Moderate to severe wrinkles and fine lines
  • Significant aging around the forehead and eyes
  • The appearance of jowls
  • And more

The average facelift patient tends to be in their late 50s or early 60s, as this is typically when the above signs tend to appear.
