If you’re thinking about undergoing a facelift procedure, you’re not alone. While dermal fillers and other non-invasive solutions for aging skin are on the rise, there’s still no comparison to the incredible results you can achieve from a facelift surgery. In fact, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons estimates that facelift procedures remain among the top five cosmetic surgeries performed in the United States today.
A facelift procedure is a great option for patients who are struggling with common facial aging issues, including:
- Sagging skin, especially around the jawline
- Moderate-to-severe wrinkles and fine lines
- Drooping eyelids and eyebrows
- Loss of skin laxity
- And more!
The facelift procedure is typically performed by making a small incision behind the ears and around the hairline. These access points allow the surgeon to pull the muscles taut to address sagging issues. The surgeon then pulls the skin tighter and trims excess skin before stitching up the incisions. Stitches are typically removed a week or two later; final results from the facelift can be seen within six months after treatment.
These incisions can vary based on the type of facelift that the patient opts for.
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the average cost of a facelift is just under $7,000. Of course, this figure can vary according to where you’re getting the facelift, the expertise of the plastic surgeon, and other costs like anesthesia and medical expenses.
A facelift also carries an extremely high patient satisfaction rating. Follow-up surveys indicate that almost 98% of patients feel extremely satisfied with the results of their facelift surgery. Just twelve years later, nearly 70% of these same patients indicated that they were still satisfied with their facelift results.
