Today, my dentist recommended a local plastic surgeon who charges $60,000 for a facelift (presumably including ASC fees and anesthesia). He said some of his patients have used this surgeon and gotten fabulous results.
The only other quote I have gotten so far for a facelift is $30,000 all inclusive.
While I have no doubt that the surgeon that my dentist recommended is good, can the $60,000 guy really be that much better than others with prices slightly less stratospheric? (And yes, people in this town have way too much money, although I am not one of them).
