Skin aging manifests both by reducing its elasticity, and by changing its structure. The facelift is a surgical intervention in which the skin goes through a stretch from the face and neck level, without fully suppressing the deep wrinkles around the nose, cheeks, or the upper lip’s crease.
The cost of facelift surgery depends on the place you perform it, but the average price for one-third of the face surgery may cost $3,000 or maybe more and a full facelift surgery may cost $15,000 or even more.
The surgery is performed under intravenously local anesthesia or under general anesthesia, with an incision that begins in the hairy skin of the head, in the temple’s region, and continues through the front of the ears and then behind the ears. The face and neck skin is taken off from the underneath subcutaneous and muscle tissue, then the excess skin is removed. The incision edges are then sutured with very fine wires, to generate a scar that is almost invisible to the naked eye.
Sometimes facelift can also be associated with chin liposuction to remove fat deposits (“chin”) or may be followed by other adjuvant procedures to improve the final result.
Among these are:
- Chemical peel;
- Chin Implants and Fat Injection;
- BOTOX® Cosmetic;
- Blepharoplasty or cosmetic eyelid surgery.
The average cost of a chemical peel is about $700. This is a popular procedure to reduce acne scars or sun damage.
This is The Price of Liposuction
This type of option may cost another $1000 apart from the surgery’s costs. This procedure is done at the same time as your facelift and consists of creating a better-defined jawline, if you are not satisfied with your actual one, with some special-shaped silicone implants.
Fat injections are another option for many patients who start to have a sunken face with age. Thereby it can be added some volume to certain face areas. For this procedure you will need fat removal, liposuction, from other areas which may cost around $2.800, depending, of course, on the treatment. Fat injection may cost a few other hundreds of dollars, apart from the facelift or other types of procedures, because you have to purify the fat.
The BOTOX® Cosmetic’s average cost is around $200 for a treatment area. This is an injectable treatment to correct the lines formed at the outer corner of the eyes, the horizontal lines between the eyes and the forehead.
Blepharoplasty, also known as cosmetic eyelid surgery, cost around $2800 and consists in helping patients look more refreshed and rejuvenated, by reducing the “bags” beneath the eyes or correcting the sagging upper eyelids.

Face and neck plastic surgery
A facelift can rejuvenate your face and neck by removing the visible signs of aging like wrinkles and prolapse. The fat and excess skin are removed, while the residual skin, subdermal tissues, and muscles are stretched. During surgery, the neck excess skin is removed and cheek and wrinkles smooth.
A facelift can be combined with liposuction to correct the double chin.
Top facial lift produces a rejuvenation of the superior frontal region, corrects the fallen look of the brows, and improves the appearance of front horizontal wrinkles also the wrinkles between the brows (which give a person sad, tired or angry image).
Front face lifting principle is to strengthen the muscles and other tissues responsible for the formation of wrinkles and drooping eyebrows
