How Much is a Facelift?
Because a facelift is considered a cosmetic procedure, most insurance companies won’t cover the expense. For this reason, patients must consider the cost in the decision-making process regarding a facelift.
That’s why at LPS, we offer financing and payment options to our patients, so you don’t have to choose between your emotional well-being and your bank balance. Many patients feel their facelift has enhanced their overall quality of life and is one of the best decisions they’ve ever made. As such, it’s best to be prepared for what to expect.
The American Society of Plastic Surgeons lists the average cost of a facelift in 2019 at $7,467. This number may vary based on the complexity of your procedure, the experience of your surgeon, and your geographic location. Another advantage you’ll find at LPS is that we perform facelifts in our accredited outpatient surgical suite, which reduces the facilities fees to our patients while keeping stringent safety standards in place.
What Results Can I Expect with a Facelift?
Your facelift at LPS will be uniquely customized to improve your specific aging concerns, but the recovery process is fairly universal. At first, you’ll experience bruising and swelling, which may look quite intense. Rest assured, it’s normal. The swelling and bruising will subside in the first 1-2 weeks, and your new facial contours will begin to emerge.
Your skin will be smoother and tighter. Your jawline will be more sculpted. Hollow areas will have been replaced with youthful volume, and your cheeks will be sculpted to a more flattering shape.
If you’ve customized your facelift with additional procedures, like an eyelid lift or nose surgery, those improvements will become visible in the same time frame. Most patients can expect to return to work in 1-2 weeks and resume most normal activities at various stages in the first month. Your tissues may take some time to settle into their new position, which could take 6 months to 1 year.
The surgeons at LPS are considered some of the best in the greater Boston area and beyond. If you’re ready to take years off your appearance with a facelift that produces naturally beautiful results, schedule a consultation today.
