Skin rejuvenation treatments can reduce signs of aging, but loose skin, lines, and wrinkles can become too significant to be treated with non-invasive methods. Facial plastic surgery may be the answer for more serious sagging and deeper wrinkles. While the initial cost of facial plastic surgery seems high, you can expect to enjoy your results for many years.
What is Facial Plastic Surgery?
Facial plastic surgery is the correction or enhancement of facial features using a surgical procedure. The board-certified surgeons at Awaken Aesthetics perform several types of facial plastic surgery. Surgeons can perform these procedures alone or in combination for even better results.
How Much is Facial Plastic Surgery?
Your cost for facial plastic surgery will depend on several factors, including the cost of living in your area, your provider’s experience and skill, and what type of procedure you plan to have. You can also expect additional fees for things like medication and anesthesia. Examples of some facial plastic surgeries and their average prices include:
A blepharoplasty or eyelid lift is performed on the upper eyelid, lower eyelid, or both. It removes excess skin and removes or repositions fat to eliminate undereye bags. On average, the procedure costs about $3000.
A brow lift or forehead lift raises the brows and eliminates hooded eyes and sagging skin. The eyes look more alert and less tired. The average brow lift cost is about $3500. Again, this does not include any additional fees.
Facial Surgery Consultations Available
A facelift can vary widely in cost depending on the type of facelift and other procedures added to the surgery. You can combine a facelift with eyelid, brow, or neck lifts for complete facial rejuvenation. The average facelift surgery costs about $8000. Additional procedures or a more complex facelift will change this average.
A neck lift tightens the area under the chin and around the neck to give you a slimmer, more sculpted neck, chin, and jaw. Neck lifts have an average cost of about $5000. Surgeons often combine a neck lift with a facelift to achieve better results.
What is Recovery Like From Facial Plastic Surgery?
Most people will need several days to rest and recover after facial plastic surgery before they resume basic activities. Swelling and bruising usually subside within the first week or two, although residual swelling will often last several months. People with low-activity jobs can often return to work within the first week, while more active jobs may require up to two weeks.
Am I a Good Candidate for Facial Plastic Surgery?
While requirements differ between surgeries, healthy nonsmokers make the best candidates. If you have significant health problems, discuss them with your surgeon. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you may need to wait before having surgery.
