Are you looking for a way to look years younger? If so, a facelift can be the ideal solution. This is particularly true if you’d like to make a dramatic difference in your face. Also known as rhytidectomy, facelift surgery can tighten the face and neck muscles and make you look 5 to 10 years younger. If you’re interested in facelift surgery and wondering how much it may cost you, read on.
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the average cost of a facelift is $7,448. However, your unique treatment plan by Dr. Schalit will determine the exact cost. Due to the fact that a facelift is an elective procedure, you won’t be able to receive insurance coverage for it. The good news is Dr. Schalit offers flexible financing plans to make it more affordable. During a consultation, we can discuss the price of your specific facelift.
During facelift surgery, which is performed under IV sedation or general anesthesia, Dr. Schalit will tighten and lift the deeper layers of your face. However, he won’t put any tension on your skin to ensure a completely natural look and reduce the visibility of scars. Once he’s elevated your facial tissues to their ideal position and removed extra skin, he’ll close the incision sites. You’ll enjoy a youthful, rejuvenated appearance.
After surgery, you’ll return home, rest, and keep your head slightly elevated. You can expect swelling and bruising, which will subside after about two weeks. If your job does not require strenuous activity, you can return to it at this point. In most cases, complete recovery takes about four weeks.
Good Candidates for Facelift Surgery
If you would like to restore your youth and don’t mind surgery, a facelift may be a good option. Dr. Schalit may recommend it if you have lost elasticity and are facing droopy, sagging skin. You should be in good health, avoid smoking, and have reasonable expectations. Understand that facelift surgery will leave you with a youthful look but won’t stop the natural process of aging. If you don’t want to undergo surgery, Dr. Schalit can suggest a non-invasive, anti-aging treatment.
I always leave there feeling 10 years younger. Dr. Schalit knows exactly what you need and when you need it. I wouldn’t trust my face with anyone else.
