Facelift Surgery Costs
Facelift ranks among the more popular cosmetic surgery procedures in the U.S. today. The surgery is intricate because the human face is composed of several complex features that must remain in harmony with each other while performing the procedure to reduce the signs of facial aging. During the initial consultation for facelift, the plastic surgeon will discuss all aspects of the procedure, including its estimated financial stipulations.
The Aesthetic Center for Plastic Surgery is a state of the art practice providing facelift and other surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures. During the initial consultation, the patient will receive complete information about the financial conditions of the procedure to enable them to make a well-considered decision. The Aesthetic Center receives patients from Houston TX, and surrounding communities.
Impacting Your Wallet
The dollar figure for facelift plastic surgery can vary from region to another as well as from one practice to another in the same area. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), the average price tag of a facelift in the US in 2013 was $6,553. However, this cost did not include the costs of general anesthesia, surgical facility expenses, and other related expenses such as prescription medications and medical tests.
Patients should consider all possible expenditures in order to have a clear idea. The total dollar amount of the procedure at a practice can range from $8,000 to $15,000, depending on a variety of factors. Cosmetic Surgeons at the Aesthetic Center for Plastic Surgery provide advanced facelift procedure to patients in Houston TX, and nearby areas.
Factors Affecting the Sticker Price
The financial understanding for a facelift surgery will be determined on a case by case basis after taking into account several considerations. These will typically include the following:
Extent of Surgery Required
Each patient may have different levels of signs of aging, and different aesthetic goals. Accordingly, the facelift surgeon will recommend the most appropriate surgical technique. A traditional full facelift surgery will be more comprehensive, and will cost more as compared to a mid facelift or a mini facelift. Partial facelifts will involve smaller incisions and the procedure can be completed faster and with reduced risk exposure.
Choice of Anesthesia
The monetary amount of general anesthesia can vary according to the fee charged by a particular anesthesiologist. A partial or mini facelift procedure may be performed with the patient under local anesthesia and sedation. The dollar amount for full sedation will typically be more than local anesthesia.
In some cases, the facelift surgery may be performed using the endoscopic technique. The cost of this technology may be a little higher as compared to a traditional surgery.
Surgeon’s fee may vary according to their skills and reputation. Geographic location of the practice will also make a difference to the overall effect on your pocket book. The financial impact in large metropolitan areas are usually higher.
Many surgeons may accept payments for the procedure via credit cards. Rebates on the procedure may be available when procedures are paid upfront in full. A few practices may also assist with third party financing through professional medical care finance companies.
