Dear Emma57779,

Thank you for your clinical post and this is a common question. There are many different types of facelifts as there are many different types of aging faces that present for rejuvenation. One of the more common types of facelift is a mini facelift. A mini facelift is designed with an incision inside the ear and extends slightly behind the ear lobule. It is excellent for correcting modest concerns of the jaw line and under the chin. A mini facelift will not address the mid-face, eyes, brow or more complicated problems of the neck.

A mini facelift can cost anywhere from $4,000.00 to $8,000.00 depending on the experience of the plastic surgeon and the difficulty of your tissue. A standard facelift generally involves extended incisions from inside the ear around the top of the ear into the hairline and further around behind the ear. It can lift and address problems of the smile lines, the jowl, the under chin and modest problems of the neck. It generally involves elevation of the skin and some underlying deeper support tissue called the SMAS or muscle. A standard facelift performed by an excellent well-trained plastic surgeon with experience in the City of Toronto will cost anywhere from $8,000.00 to $15,000.00. It is certainly true that sometimes you get what you pay for and a face is always on display.

There are some more specialized versions of facelifts that include the brow, the lids, endoscopic elevations of the brow or the tail of the brow elevation with or without cheek elevation such as an endoscopic mid facelift and these can be added to a standard or mini facelift. Specialized facelifts that lift brow, all four lids, mid-face, jowl and neck would cost anywhere from $18,000.00 to $25,000.00 with the two or three top facelift surgeons in Toronto.

I was fortunate to be trained in both plastic surgery and ear, nose, throat, head and neck oncology and have been performing standard, mini and specialized facelifts for over 20 years.

Schedule consultations with two or three reputable facelift surgeons and I think there’s a high probability you’ll get an excellent result at an affordable, realistic or necessary price point.

I hope this information has been of some assistance and best of luck.

Facelift costs

The price is going to vary from surgeon to surgeon and will depend on what exactly needs to be done to achieve your desired outcome. Bottom line, an in person evaluation is mandatory. I would suggest that you find a board certified plastic surgeon in your area (link below) whose work you like and call their office for a quote. Best, Dr. Nazarian

Cost for facelift


Thank you for your question. As others have stated, what an individualised "face lift" consists of could vary greatly. The cost for a brow lift versus SMAS full face lift for instance, could be drastically different- roughly 5500 to over 14000. The cost for facial cosmetic surgery also varies greatly between Plastic Surgeons as those who are highly specialised, trained in facial cosmetic surgery and in high demand will have pricing which reflects that.

I recommend that you consider experience, before and after photos which appeal to you, and book consultations in-person to meet with your chosen Plastic Surgeons. Base your choice on your satisfaction with the Surgeon and surgical plan.

All the best

Cost of a facelift/necklift

Hi there.  Thank you for submitting your question to the physician community here at RealSelf.  In my opinion, the first question to ask is "what defines a facelift" as per your surgeon.  Simply, is it a lower facelift/necklift, or a lower facelift/necklift with eye (and/or midface) procedures added?  The traditional answer is that a "facelift" is actually a lower facelift and necklift.  In metro areas such as yours, it is typical to pay anywhere from $5-12K (USD) for this procedure.  The surgeon's experience is critical.  It is completely reasonable to pay upwards of 100% more for your procedure if you have a seasoned surgeon performing your work.  My advice is to interview a 2-3 surgeons at a minimum before undergoing this rejuvenating procedure.

Thanks for this question.

The prices vary in Toronto according to how much work is done, where it is done and who does it. Having said that the range is likely $9000 to $2500. 

Facelift fees

The cost for a facelift will vary from surgeon to surgeon and from city to city. I suggest finding a surgeon you want to go with then get the fees.  You want to see the surgeon's results and go with one that you like.

What is the cost of a facelift procedure?

 The cost of a facelift procedure is determined by the amount of time it takes to perform the procedure in an operating room, the amount of time under anesthesia monitored by a Board certified physician anesthesiologist, and the surgeon's professional fee for performing the  Face and neck lift procedure. More important than the cost, is to find a  surgeon who produces a very natural result. For many examples and our current price list, please see the link below
