The cost of a facelift is determined by the experience of your plastic surgeon

Thank you for your question.  The cost of a facelift varies widely across the United States from about $5000-$15,000 depending on whether the neck is included.

East Coast and west coast prices for face lift are higher than in the middle of the country.

The most important determinant of the cost of a facelift is the skill, experience, and reputation of your facelift surgeon.  Generally the most skilled and experienced facelift surgeons are able to command the highest facelift fees.

The cost of a facelift depends on several factors, such as the city, surgeon, surgical facility, technique applied, and extent of correction desired. In Toronto, Ontario, you can expect to pay around $13,000 to $15,000. Financing is available with monthly payment plans from a couple hundred dollars.

Hi Bonnie. As you can see, prices are all over the place. While going with the least expensive option is NEVER a good idea, I do believe you can find a high quality surgeon who can perform an excellent operation somewhere in the range of 9-12K. Make sure you go to a doctor that has plenty of experience and gives you a good "vibe." Hope that helps.

          Facelift will cost $8000 at the low end.  Find a plastic surgeon with ELITE credentials who performs hundreds of facelifts, facelift revisions, and facial procedures each year.  Then look at the plastic surgeon's website before and after photo galleries to get a sense of who can deliver the results.

Facelift cost variable.

Most facelifts are performed in conjunction with other operations. In addition there different types of facelifts tailored to the needs of the patient. A simple straightforward facelift without anything else would be about $8000.

How much for a facelift?

Dear Bonnie,

Thank you for your question.  Depending what is done and who you go to, it will likely be in the range of 10-20k.  Fees vary from surgeon to surgeon, and a facelift is not a product you pick up at the store.  The result will be different from surgeon to surgeon as well.  

Best Wishes,

Price for a facelift

  As has been answered many times on this forum, the price for a procedure varies from doctor to doctor and from region to region.  Certainly, it also depends on a patient's individual anatomy and what type of anesthesia is preferred, and where the procedure is performed.

Cost for Facelift and Neck Lift

+1

Thank you for the question and the photo. Facelift costs vary widely, relative to the geographic area, experience of the surgeon, and what exactly is being done in the procedure. The last of these concerns is perhaps most important.  Some facelifts are really just removal of a little bit of skin and then sutures to pull on the face.  Others involve a comprehensive approach to the face and neck, addressing the skin laxity, excess fat, and loose muscles all together.  In the San Francisco Bay Area, cost can range from about $8500 to more than $20,000.  Best of luck moving forward!

Costs for a Face and Necklift

These can vary widely ranging from about $4,000 for a quick tuck to over $20,000. Geographic area will determine surgeon's overhead and his daily lifestyle expenses - therefore Manhattan prices are much higher than Buffalo, NY. Surgeons who perform multiple facelifts a week often charge higher fees than the once-in-a-time surgeon, no matter his or her board certification. Experience and outcome with this procedure is paramount.

After facelift surgery, it will not matter to you having "saved" money if you do not accomplish what you were hoping for.

Face lifts vary across the country. What would be good to know is exactly what it does. You may need other procedures to help with your needs. Eyelifts, browlifts and mouth rejuvenation are not included with facelifts. So if you add these on it will increase the price alot.
