Facelift has consistently ranked among the most sought-after cosmetic surgery procedures over the past 25 years.
There have been various developments in surgical techniques and technologies over this period. These advancements have now made it possible to produce dramatic outcomes with facelift in a less invasive and painful manner with a shorter recovery duration.
But it is important to work with a highly qualified and experienced surgeon for an intricate procedure such as a facelift. At the time of the initial consultation, the surgeon will explain the costs and other aspects of the procedure to the patient. A committed surgeon will make sure that the patient has all the information to be able to make a prudent decision.
Patients with clear insights and information on facelift surgery can make well-considered choices on the procedure, and feel reassured about their decision. Envy Aesthetic Center, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Marco Gonzalez provides facelift to patients in El Paso, TX, and surrounding locations.
Facelift cosmetic surgery can differ between two practices, and even between two patients at the same practice. The elements affecting facelift costs are:
Geographical Location of the Practice
Major metropolitan areas and towns around the East and West Coasts in the United States often have a higher cost of living index compared to smaller towns in interior regions.
Factors such as real estate costs, average household income, taxation policies, and other overhead costs will influence the cost of living. These aspects impact the cost of products and services, including the cost of surgical procedures, such as a facelift surgery.
Type of Facelift Technique
Some patients need significant improvement in the appearance of their face. The surgeon may recommend the deep plane lift technique or a combination of a traditional facelift with non-surgical facial procedures. Some patients, on the other hand, may need a mini facelift or in-office facelift, which is comparatively less invasive.
The procedure price tag will vary depending on the type and extent of the procedure. If the facelift plastic surgery involves additional procedures, such as an eyelid lift or neck lift, the total financial impact will be higher.
Surgical Venue and Anesthesia Costs
The plastic surgeon will perform a significant facelift surgery at a hospital, a private surgical suite, or an accredited surgical center. The monetary amount of the surgical venue will differ in each case. The surgeon will discuss the advantages and limitations of each venue with the patient in detail.
In case the surgeon undertakes the surgery under general anesthesia, the procedure will involve the fees of an anesthesiologist or an anesthetist nurse. The chargers will differ based on their qualifications and experience.
The plastic surgeon’s charges will depend on their qualifications, experience, and eminence in the area of facial surgery.
The American Society of Plastic Surgeons advises patients to select the best plastic surgeon for their requirements, particularly for a delicate procedure such as a facelift. The surgeon’s charges should only be a secondary factor in this decision.
Facelift plastic surgery is an elective procedure, which means that the patient will likely not be eligible for insurance coverage for this procedure. However, patients may seek financing from third-party avenues such as medical finance firms to make payments in manageable monthly installments. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Marco Gonzalez receives patients from El Paso, TX, and nearby areas for facelift surgery.
