Cost of lower face/neck lift

The cost of a lower face neck lift in our practice is ~11.5k and includes all costs, including operating room, and anesthesia.  One of the main factors is that you have to make sure you are comparing apples with apples.  i.e. what some surgeons or centers may call a lower face/neck lift is really just a mini lift

Cost of lower face/neck lift

The lower face/neck lift cost is derived from 3 components, the operating room, the anesthesia, and the surgeon’s fee for performing the procedure.  There is a wide range of prices amongst physicians around the country.  A comprehensive face/neck lift will usually cost between $10-$12 thousand dollars when performed in a certified and licensed ambulatory surgery center by a reputable surgeon.  It is also important to have a board certified physician anesthesiologist in attendance for patient’s safety as well.

How Much Does Lower Face/Neck-Lift Cost?

 This will vary based on what exactly needs to be done, how exstensive it is and the experience of the plastic and cosmetic surgeon performing your Face Lift and Neck Lift.  I have performed Face Lifts for over 20 years and suspension and thread lifts are ineffective and unreliable IMHO.  Minimal incision Face Lifts that dissect (not fold) and lift the SMAS, remove excess fatty tissue, remove excess skin and shape the cheeks are going to give superior aesthetic results with the least amount of healing and downtime IMO.

The Approximate Cost of a Facelift

The #price of a #Facelift is always a concern when deciding whether or not to have a cosmetic procedure. Patients’ needs and goals vary, so there is no fixed price for a facelift. The contributing factors to the cost of a facelift include the surgeon’s fee, facility fee, medication cost and the anesthesia fee. Estimated fees may also be found here on Real Self, and the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery website,, or
Secondly, your procedures should be performed by a #PlasticSurgeon who is board-certified and has a great deal of experience specializing in cosmetic #surgery. You will then greatly improve your chances of getting the result you desire, and, without the need for a revision surgery. I suggest you view before and after photos of the surgeons actual patients, and read patient reviews. Gathering all of this information will help you make a well-informed decision.

Factors that affect Cost of Face Lift or Neck Lift

Face lift is elective surgery and, as such, fees can vary widely from patient to patient and may or may not include other supplemental surgeries for optimal results. At my New York practice, one of the most important factors to determine the cost of the surgery has to do with the individual patient. The amount of facial aging, the medical status of the patient, the degree of sun exposure and habits such as smoking or being overweight will all influence how much work needs to be done. Of course, the patient’s cosmetic goals are important as well. Will they need additional work? Would a facelift be pointless in a particular case if a necklift is not done at the same time? These are questions which must be addressed when determining the cost. In addition, a surgeon’s cost for facelift surgery is likely based on his or her experience and may include surgeon’s fee, surgical facility cost, anesthesia fees, pre-screening medical tests, prescriptions and other incidental costs. The location of the practice, may also be a cost factor.

Cost of Face/Neck Lift

Thank you for your question.

Every practice is different in how they charge.  Fees vary depending on the experience of the surgeon, where the procedure is performed (in an office setting or outpatient surgery center), who administers the anesthesia (MD vs. nurse), and exactly what is performed.  

There are so many variables so it really is in your best interest to have a consultation with a board certified plastics surgeon to discuss your options.

A range can be $8000-$10,000

I hope this helps.

Lower Face/Neck-Lift Cost

The cost of a facelift/neck lift varies by the area of the country that you live in and by the experience and skill level of the surgeon. Other factors include the type of anesthesia that you choose. A lower facelift can reasonably be done under local anesthetic. If you are skeptical about your ability to tolerate this type of procedure while you are awake you can do it under general anesthetic. The procedure typically takes between 2 and 3 hours.

Most lower face/necklifts range from $6500-$10,000, again, depending on region and surgeon. If you choose general anesthesia you will likely need to add an additional $2000 to the cost for surgery center and anesthesia fees. I would do multiple consults, compare prices, and go with the surgeon who you trust the most. I understand that many people have significant budget concerns but I would advise against finding the lowest price and going with that surgeon strictly because he or she is the cheapest. Take your time and save if you have to.

Cost of a lower facelift and necklift

The costs vary from surgeon to surgeon and from region to region and there is no specific industry standard.  The most important thing to do is to find the best genuine Board Certified plastic surgeon, avoiding the ones trying to tempt you with cute named procedures, and see multiple unretouched photos of that doctor's work. Remember that no 2 surgeons are alike in talent, training, artistic ability, and in overall patient care.  In other words, the very same patient will get two entirely different results if they went to two different surgeons.  This is your only face so don't go for discounted surgery when considering a facelift.  Good luck.
