Factors Influencing the Sticker Price
The financial factors of a facelift plastic surgery will vary from one practice to another, and may even vary from one patient to another at the same practice. The following key factors will impact the overall dollar amount of the facelift for a patient.
Where the practice is located will make a difference to the overall monetary amount of the facelift surgery. The sticker price in prime urban centers and cities around the coastal regions will typically be higher than the costs in smaller towns and interior regions. Employment rates, medial household incomes, real estate prices, and local taxation can differ between two regions, which will impact the average costs. Therefore, the cost of facelift surgery in Las Vegas, NV may not be the same as the price tag in, say, Atlanta, GA.
If a significant improvement in the facial appearance is required, the surgeon may apply the deep plane facelift technique, or combine the procedure with facial liposuction, neck lift, fat transfer or other procedures. In another case, only a partial facelift surgery may be necessary. The cost of procedure will vary according to the type and extent of facelift surgery performed.
Anesthesia and Surgical Venue Costs
A Facelift may be performed using general anesthesia or local anesthesia with IV sedation. The procedure may be performed by an anesthesiologist or a registered anesthetist nurse. Their fee will differ according to their qualifications. The procedure may be performed at a hospital, an accredited surgical center, or a private surgical suite. The costs and benefits in each case will vary.
Fee Charged by the Surgeon
The cosmetic surgeon may charge a fee for facelift according to their qualifications, experience and reputation in the area of facial procedures. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons recommends that patients should choose the right surgeon for their needs, and aspects such as the surgeon’s fee should only be secondary considerations to such a decision.
The price tag for the facelift procedure should not deter a patient from achieving their desired aesthetic goals. Patients have an option to receive low interest loans from professional medical care finance companies. These companies may offer easy terms and conditions and quick approvals, and sometimes even zero interest loans for a certain period of time.
