Cost factors vary significantly for a number of good reasons: Prices vary greatly because the surgery itself encompasses a wide range of techniques that can be performed to different extents. My recommendation is to first find the most qualified surgeons where you want the surgery performed that are board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery you trust, then compare prices between them. See the below link on suggestions on how to find the most qualified plastic surgeon for your procedure. General Factors that influence the price of plastic surgery include:

1. Location - Will it be performed in a hospital with an overnight stay, an independent out- patient facility or a doctor’s office? Geographical location also has a significant influence. RealSelf has average charges for most areas of the USA.

2. Type of Anesthesia - local, IV sedation or General Anesthesia? Will a board certified anesthesiologist, nurse anesthetist, or an RN be used?            3. Experience and training of your surgeon. The best and longest trained is most often a plastic surgeon board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery           4. Length and Complexity of Surgery - how difficult will your surgery be and how long it will take, etc. Will other complementary procedures also be also performed during the same surgery?

Without examining you it is hard to say, but likely you will need liposuction under the chin and possibly a face lift. The price for this varies significantly based on the extent of the lift you may need. If you are concerned about your cheeks and would like to rejuvenate the fat pads that provide high cheek bones, you may want to also consider fat transfer or cheek implants. I would recommend visiting several surgeons for a consultation to determine which type of procedure is right for you. It is always important to not sacrifice quality for price, so be sure that you find a surgeon who is board certified and specializes in these procedures.

It is difficult to say without seeing you but if you are 67 you will likely need more than a mini lift or a little liposuction.

Double chin costs from $3-6000, and cheek lifts vary from another 3-6000

The pricing on this varies depending on location and who you are seeing. Some doctors have a better reputation and will charge a lot more for their services. This reputation is usually based on results and word of mouth. The pricing that is mentioned above will usually not include other fees assessed for anesthesia, who have their own fees for these procedures and they usually are based on the time it takes to do the procedures.

The procedures that will help each area will include the neck lift and facelift for the double chin area. Droopy cheeks can be addressed by midface lifts, and deep plane facelifts. My personal opinion is that droopy cheeks are best augmented by volume and I prefer fat injections and the YoungVolumizer for this particular issue.

Double chin and sagging cheek correction

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

It sounds from your description that a minilift type of procedure would be ideal for you. That is the typical procedure I recommend to my patients who would like correction of the double chin and sagging lower face. Typically, the double chin in your age group is caused by some excess fatty tissue and some frontal skin excess; the lower face drooping is typically caused by some descent of the lower cheek fatty mounds. It is less invasive than a traditional lift and the total costs for the procedure are $6550 which includes the professional fee, anesthesia and our facility fee. I hope this information helps.

The costs of facial surgery vary from on geographic location to another. The best way to get an estimate is to post a picture of your chin and cheeks so surgeons can get a better idea of how much work needs to be done.
