How much does facelift surgery cost?

How much does facelift surgery cost?

shutterstock_94196869-300x300 How much does facelift surgery cost? | Northern VirginiaFacelift plastic surgery (rhytidectomy) can reverse the damaging effect that stress, time, and aging have on a person’s face. Facelift costs vary depending on the surgeon and the location of the practice.

Additionally, the surgery also involves costs associated with prescription drugs, anesthesia, and medical examinations. Patients seeking a facelift should discuss the approximate cost of the procedure with their surgeon.  

Modern Body Contouring & Laser Center, led by board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton M. Sundin and Dr. Reps B. Sundin, provides facelift to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and surrounding communities.

 

Factors Affecting Facelift Costs

Facelift costs can vary differ significantly between patients. Multiple factors affect the overall costs of a facelift. Approximate costs will take various factors into account, such as:

Type of Facelift Technique

There are various types of facelift procedures which target particular signs of aging and improve the appearance of specific facial features. A full facelift typically costs more than a mid or mini facelift.

The difference is because of the more extensive nature of a traditional facelift. Cutting edge facelift approaches, such as endoscopic facelifts, could sometimes be more costly than traditional facelifts.

Type of Anesthesia

Facelift plastic surgery is done with the patient under either general or local anesthesia, depending on the patient’s needs. General anesthesia will be more expensive in comparison to local anesthesia. The anesthesiologist’s fee will differ according to their credentials and experience.

Additional Procedures

Many patients choose to receive a facelift in combination with other procedures for more complete results. The cost estimates for the facelift surgery will not include the cost of these additional procedures.

Surgeon’s Experience and Reputation

A cosmetic surgeon with extensive experience in facial surgery will charge more than a relatively inexperienced surgeon working under the guidance of a senior surgeon. However, many patients decide to work with an experienced surgeon despite the extra costs for safe, predictable, and beautiful results.

Geographical Location

The location of a practice affects the cost of various procedures, including rhytidectomy. Generally, busy metropolitan cities will have a higher cost of cosmetic surgeries compared to small towns in the interiors.

Extent of Treatment

The patient may undergo one of the following procedures, depending on the facelift goals of the patient:

  • A lower facelift which treats the jowls, jawline, and neck.
  • A mid facelift which treats the area surrounding the eyes, mouth, and nose.
  • A brow lift which corrects droopy skin and folds in the brow area.
  • A full facelift combines various elements of brow lift, mid facelift, and lower facelift.

The facelift cost will vary depending on the extent and complexity of the procedure.

 

Payment Methods

A facelift is an elective surgery which means that the patient will likely not receive insurance coverage for this procedure. At the time of the pre-operative consultation, the patient should understand the payment options that are available to them.

Most surgeons accept check, cash, and credit cards. Some practices also provide a substantial rebate if the patient pays for the procedure up-front.

Facelift Surgery Options

shutterstock_104000726-259x300 Facelift Surgery Options | Northern VirginiaFacelift surgery, also known as rhytidectomy, is a procedure used to mitigate the appearance of facial wrinkles and other visible signs of aging, with the objective of enhancing the overall appearance of the jaw and face.

Facelift plastic surgery helps reverse the adverse effects of stress, time, and exposure to the elements.

Types of Facelifts

Traditional Full Facelift

A full facelift offers patients the most complete outcomes. This procedure helps correct deep creases beneath the eyes, sagging around the cheeks, lines around the mouth, excess fat, and skin under the jowls, chin, and more.

This procedure targets a larger area and therefore requires a longer incision. It typically extends from the temple, around the ear, and down the neck. Traditional facelifts can treat more pronounced signs of aging. This makes it sought-after by patients in their 50’s and 60’s.

Mid Facelift

In a mid facelift, a surgeon can lift and tighten the tissues beneath the eyes and around the cheeks. When performing this procedure, the surgeon will place incisions that are similar to those used in a full facelift, but they will usually be deeper.

This technique enables them to lift the muscles that are usually not addressed by a traditional facelift. In addition, they may use facial implants or fat grafting to improve contours and develop more defined cheekbones.

As this plastic surgery procedure does not treat all signs of aging, it is usually more suitable for women in their 30’s and 40’s who are only seeking to rejuvenate their appearance.

Mini Facelift

Mini facelifts involve tinier incisions and a briefer recovery period. For this reason, this procedure is sometimes called the “weekend facelift.” Similar to the mid facelift, this surgery targets a smaller region, mainly the lower cheeks, neck, and jaw.

The surgeon will typically place the incisions along the hairline and behind the ear. They will lift the muscles, eliminate unwanted fatty pockets, and remove excess skin through these incisions.

Many surgeons undertake mini facelifts using endoscopic techniques. This procedure is also popular among relatively younger patients who are showing the early signs of aging.

Lower Facelift

Lower facelifts target the bottom third of the face, as the name suggests. This surgery can dramatically correct jowls, reduce deep nasolabial folds, lift the sagging mouth corners, and enhance the jaw.

The procedure is similar to various types of facelifts, and the surgeon will place incisions along the patient’s hairline and ears. Lower facelifts are appropriate for patients of all age brackets who seek to reduce signs of aging and enjoy a more youthful look.

Thread Facelift

Thread lifts offer a quick and minimally invasive alternative to full facelifts. In this procedure, the surgeon develops tiny stitches right below the skin to lift the underlying muscles. Thread facelifts are usually undertaken without anesthesia and do not leave behind any noticeable scars.

The complete treatment takes around one to two hours, and it is sometimes called the “lunchtime lift.” This treatment is more appropriate for patients in their 30’s, and 40’s who only seek minor improvements in their appearance.

Types of Neck Lift Options in The Washington DC Area

shutterstock_9360046-e1556679263820-280x300 Types of Neck Lift Options in The Washington DC Area | Northern VirginiaExcess fatty pockets and loose skin in the neck region may appear unattractive or create the appearance of a double chin. From an aesthetic perspective, this condition can be equally bothersome for men or women.

Neck lift is a relatively less invasive plastic surgery treatment to mitigate signs of aging in the neck area. Another non-surgical solution to address neck fat is Kybella injections.

 

Two Choices to Consider

Patients considering fat reduction and skin tightening in the neck area should evaluate both options of neck lift surgery and Kybella injections.

Now, MBody also offers innovative neck skin tightening with J-Plasma by Renuvion. This is a minimally-invasive procedure that provides many benefits of a traditional neck lift.

People who are concerned about sagging skin around the jawline or ‘crepey’ skin in the lower face may consider this cutting-edge skin tightening procedure to tone and tighten the skin in a minimally invasive manner.

Modern Body Contouring & Laser Center, led by board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton M. Sundin and Dr. Reps B. Sundin, provides neck lift to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and surrounding communities.

 

Candidates for Non-Surgical Neck Lift Procedures

Kybella injectable treatment is more suitable for candidates who have excess fatty tissue deposits in the neck and beneath the chin.

Liposuction or non-surgical Kybella injections can effectively reduce this double chin appearance. Sometimes, neck lift and lipo or neck lift and Kybella injections may be used in combination to accomplish more complete results.

Difficult-to-treat regions, such as the jowls and the upper neck, can now also be addressed with the J-Plasma by Renuvion procedure. This is a minimally invasive procedure which is suitable for patients with very thin skin in specific facial areas and sagging skin around the jawline.

While the procedure involves the stimulation of collagen production and tissue tightening using heat, the energy is controlled at a level that will not cause burns or damage even the thinner skin tissue.

For this reason, it can effectively treat a ‘turkey neck’ or sagging skin around the lower jaw and chin without causing damage to the skin.

 

Procedure

The FDA approved Kybella treatment involves administering injections directly into the targeted fatty pockets beneath the chin. Plastic surgery procedures are completed in a single day.

However, in most cases, Kybella injectable procedure will require two to four treatment sessions. The time taken for each session will be around 20 minutes, and a maximum of six sessions may be necessary.

The J-Plasma by Renuvion neck skin tightening procedure can be undertaken using local anesthesia. The procedure requires only tiny incisions to be made. In this procedure, a stream of Helium plasma energy is delivered to the tissue sub-dermally or directly beneath the skin.

 

A Sparkling Outcome is the Goal

The heat produced from this energy promotes collagen production deep within the tissue and causes a skin tightening effect that only enhances over time. The outcome is more youthful, tauter, and firmer skin in the treated sites.

There is no laser, ultrasound, or RF device to date that is capable of tightening and firming skin at the same level as J-Plasma by Renuvion. For people seeking to enhance the tone and tautness of skin around the neck and face, J-Plasma by Renuvion offers excellent results.

Plastic surgeons at MBody receive patients from Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and nearby areas for neck lift.
