The average cost of a facelift is $6,550, according to 2014 statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
Facelift costs can vary widely. The average fee referenced above does not include anesthesia, operating room facilities or other related expenses.
A surgeon's fee may vary based on his or her experience, as well as geographic office location.
Most health insurance does not cover facelift surgery or its complications, but many plastic surgeons offer patient financing plans, so be sure to ask.
The cost of facelift surgery may include:
- Surgeon’s fee
- Hospital or surgical facility costs
- Anesthesia fees
- Prescriptions for medication
- Post-surgery garments, and
- Medical tests
When choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon for facelift surgery, remember that the surgeon’s experience and your comfort with him or her are just as important as the final cost of the surgery.
