Facelift cost

The average cost of a facelift is $7,048, according to 2016 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.

Facelift costs may include:

  • Surgeon's fee
  • Hospital or surgical facility costs
  • Anesthesia fees
  • Prescriptions for medication
  • Post-surgery garments
  • Medical tests

When choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon in your area 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.
