Endocsopic browlift costs

The cost really varies and the 2 biggest factors in order of importance are surgeon experience and location.  I can tell you that I do surgery in NYC and Beverly Hills and the cost in NYC are much higher then the BH costs because the anesthesilogists and operating rooms in NYC charge just about double that of their BH counterparts.

Cost for a Brow Lift Procedure

The brow lift procedure ranges between $6,000-6,500. Depending upon where you live and the facility you choose, costs can vary significantly. Make sure you find out if the price you are quoted includes all applicable fees as well as follow-up. Post-op appointments up to a year should be included in the costs, and remember there also may be additional lab work and prescription costs as well.

One thing to keep in mind is that the decision to undergo plastic surgery is an important one, and should not be taken lightly. Most definitely, the cost should not be your main focus or determining factor with any surgical procedure. Other factors should be careful evaluated as well, such as the experience of the surgeon, whether the surgeon is Board Certified and whether you feel comfortable with him or her. The facility should be properly licensed, with well trained anesthesiologists on board as well.

Brow Lift costs vary greatly


Browlift surgery can very greatly in cost. There are several methods.

1. Chemical (Botox) which would cost between $300 to $700.

2. Endoscopic (video-assisted) which would cost between $4000 to $12,000.

3. Open (traditional) which would cost similar to the endoscopic.

However, not every procedure is appropriate for every patient. If you post a picture, we may be able to give you more specific advice/information.

Brow Lifts: the cost?

There is no one technique for brow lifts which can be performed utilizing various methods. This also may be achieved in combination with forehead lifts or forehead reductions or upper lid procedures of facelifts (temporal brow lifts) as well as with percutaneous (suture suspension) techniques. Some people even undergo the chemical brow lift (Botox).

Costs are a total of the surgeon's fees, facility fees, anesthetic costs, and/or implant or medical supply costs. Using Botox this could be as low as $300 and could range all the way up to $12,000.

The procedure you choose will have great impact on the cost and will ultimately the result of a thorough discussion with your surgeon.

Brow Lift Cost

Because there are many different options for lifting a brow, the cost can vary depending on the method that is used.  Incisions can be hidden in the eyelid crease, in front of the hairline, or within the hair itself.  The cost of the procedure depends on the amount of droopiness and the best method for you.

Cost of brow lifts

Hi there,
The cost of a brow lift will vary depending on what needs to be done; whether local or sedation or general anaesthesia is require; and the city you live in.  In general the simplest may cost $2500 if a direct excision is performed under local anaesthetic.  For more technical brow lifts using an endoscope the cost could double or triple depending.

How much does a browlift cost?

Costs for a browlift will certainly vary depending on your location. Things to factor in for the procedure standpoint will be the facility fee, anesthesia fee, surgeon fee, other fees (e.g., surgical garment, materials, addition of other surgical procedures, etc.).   A range in price ~$3000-8000 is not unreasonable. $3-6k would be a reasonable cost on average. A consultation with a plastic surgeon will help you in determining which procedure(s) would be the right one for you. Cost also depends on the complexity of your case and how much work would need to be done to achieve an aesthetically-pleasing tummy for you. Good luck!

Brow Lift Costs

The cost of any surgery includes many things, but the two major fees are the surgeon's fees and the anesthesia fees. One way to decrease the cost by at least a couple thousand dollars to to have it done under "local" anesthesia (same thing as IV sedation), as there is absolutely no reason I can think of to have it done under "general" anesthesia (where they put a tube down your throat, paralyze you and have a machine breathing for you).

A surgical forehead lift plus IV sedation, including surgical facility fees, assistant and staffing fees, pre-surgery and post-surgery clinic fees and all supplies and medication shouldn't cost much more than $5000 to $6000.
