How Much Does a Facelift Cost?
By Michael A. Devlin, MD on December 23, 2021
Facelift surgery is regularly ranked as one of the most often performed plastic surgery procedures. A facelift addresses the most common signs of aging, including lines, wrinkles, deep creases, and saggy skin, to restore a more refreshed and youthful appearance.
While many people are eager to learn how a facelift can help them turn back the hands of time and achieve their aesthetic goals, they may also have concerns about the cost of a facelift. Plastic surgeon Michael A. Devlin can provide individuals in Little Rock, Conway, and Hot Springs, AR, with an accurate estimate of facelift costs based on their unique needs and desires.
A facelift procedure is not something that has a set price tag. There are many factors that influence the final cost of surgical treatment. At Dr. Devlin’s cosmetic surgery practice, the cost of a facelift starts at $6,700. This includes the surgeon’s fee and all necessary surgical aftercare. The cost may increase based on treatment factors. A personal consultation with Dr. Devlin is the best way to get an accurate estimate of the final cost of facelift surgery.
What Affects the Cost of a Facelift?
The starting cost of facelift surgery at Dr. Devlin’s practice includes the surgeon’s fee and aftercare expenses, therefore the factor that affects the ultimate cost of facelift treatment is the surgical technique. There are several different facelift procedures for patients to choose from. The technique that is best for each patient depends largely on the degree of facial aging, and the areas of the face that require alteration. Available facelift techniques include:
- Traditional facelift - A traditional facelift lifts and smooths skin, and tightens facial muscles from the middle of the face down to the neck. A traditional facelift is ideal for individuals with moderate to severe signs of aging.
- Mini facelift - A mini facelift is less invasive than a traditional facelift, because it requires shorter incisions. The mini facelift focuses on the lower face and neck. This procedure is best-suited to patients with early signs of aging and minimal skin sagging.
- RestoreLift facelift - Dr. Devlin developed the RestoreLift facelift. This technique minimizes recovery time while maximizing treatment results. The procedure combines multiple facial plastic surgery procedures to provide comprehensive treatment of the face, and restore a more youthful aesthetic without making the patient look unnatural.
Financing Facelift Costs
Regardless of which facelift technique is best suited for each patient, cosmetic surgery can be a significant expense. As an elective procedure, insurance does not provide any coverage for a facelift, but there are other financing options available to help patients fit a facelift within their budget. Potential financing options include medical loans and credit plans. Our team is happy to assist patients in exploring finance options for their procedure.
