Facelift procedures are the gold standard when it comes to total facial rejuvenation for both men and women. The procedure can help reverse years of aging and restore facial muscles to a more youthful position. While the procedure can be beneficial for many, it is a good idea to have an understanding of what you’ll pay before deciding if it’s right for you.
According to the American Board of Plastic Surgeons, the average cost of a facelift procedure was just about $7,700 in 2018. It’s important to note that facelift procedures can dramatically vary in cost for many reasons. Whether it’s your surgeon’s skill, your geographic location, or the type of facelift, you may find yourself paying much more or much less than another person for your procedure.
This procedure may not be suitable for every patient. All patients must be evaluated by a physician as to the appropriateness of performing the procedure.

What Goes Into the Cost of Facelift Surgery?
The best way to determine what you’ll pay is through an in-person consultation with a facelift specialist. Today, however, we’ll go over a few factors that may affect the price you’ll pay one way or another. Be sure to ask your surgeon which of these are included in your initial quote to ensure there are no unexpected surprises.
#1: Surgeon’s Fees
Your surgeon’s fees are going to be the number one expense when it comes to your facelift surgery. A skilled, experienced, board-certified surgeon that is capable of producing natural-looking results may come with a slightly higher price tag than one who’s just starting his or her career.
#2: Type of Facelift
There are many types of facelift procedures for men and women of all ages. A mini-lift, for example, could be a cost-effective alternative for younger patients with minor aging concerns. The procedure requires smaller incisions, less technical skill, and can sometimes be done solely with a local anesthetic. Dr. Karolak performs all of his procedures without the risk of general anesthesia.
#3: Hospital & Anesthesia Costs
Both hospital and general anesthesia costs are calculated on a per-hour basis. The more complex the procedure, the higher the price tag. Your surgeon will be able to provide you with a projected estimate about what your specific surgery will entail. Dr. Karolak performs all of his procedures without the need for general anesthesia.
#4: Pre-Surgical Expenses
Pre-surgical expenses are necessary to ensure you’re a good fit for facelift procedures. You may undergo several routine medical exams and lab tests prior to surgery. These tests help your surgeon have an understanding of any potential complications beforehand.
#5: Post-Surgical Expenses
Post-surgical expenses can include prescription medications, compression garments, and follow-up exams. Ask your surgeon if these costs are calculated into your final bill at the time of your initial consultation.
