Facelift Plastic Surgery
Facelift ranks among the most sought after plastic surgery procedures since the last two decades. There have been numerous developments in surgical technologies and techniques over the last 25 years with regard to facelift. The advancements allow for creating dramatic results in a minimally invasive and painless manner.
However, it is important that you always work with an experienced and qualified plastic surgeon for intricate procedures, such as facelift. Your surgeon, during pre-op consultation, will explain the various factors and costs related to the procedure. Responsible surgeons will ensure that the patient has all the necessary information for making a judicious decision.
The Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery and Modern Body Contouring Center, led by board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton M. Sundin and Dr. Reps B. Sundin, provide facelift to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and surrounding locations.
Cost Factors Associated with Facelifts
Facelift cosmetic surgery may differ between patients getting the surgery at the same practice or between two different practices. These are the factors that affect the overall cost:
Metropolitan cities and towns on the East and West Coasts tend to have a higher cost of living as compared to smaller towns in the interior areas. Average household income, real estate costs, overhead costs, and taxation policies can drive up the monetary amount of several products and services. This holds true for medical procedures, like facelift too.
Many patients require significant improvements in the way their face looks. Surgeons may carry out a deep plane lift technique or a combination of non-surgical facial procedures and traditional facelift. On the other hand, an in-office facelift or a mini facelift may get the job done on some patients. These procedures are fairly less invasive.
Cost of procedure shall depend on the extent and type of the procedure. Facelifts involving additional procedures in combination, such as a neck lift or an eyelid lift will cost more.
Anesthesia and Surgical Venue Costs
Plastic surgeons can perform traditional facelifts at private surgical suite, hospital and accredited surgical centers only. The dollar amount of the surgical venue is different for each option. The surgeon will walk you through the benefits and limitations of each venue type.
The surgery will be undertaken under general anesthesia in each case. The procedure shall involve an anesthetist nurse or an anesthesiologist and their fee.
Cosmetic Surgeon’s Fee
The fees of plastic surgeons differ based on their experience, qualifications, and eminence in the facial surgery area. Patients are advised by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons to only select the best plastic surgeons for their purpose and requirement. This is particularly true for delicate procedures, like facelifts. You should not place the surgeon’s fee as a priority while making a decision.
A facelift is an elective plastic surgery procedure. This means that you will probably not be eligible for insurance coverage. However, patients looking for third party financing options, such as medical finance firms will have plenty of options.
