A facelift is the most effective plastic surgery procedure to reduce the signs of aging from the face and provide a rejuvenated and younger looking facial appearance. At the time of pre-op consultation, the surgeon will educate the patient about all aspects of facelift surgery, including its estimated financial implications.
The patient should feel free to ask questions related to costs, post-operative expenses, insurance and financing from the surgeon or their administrative staff. The terrific and caring Modern Body Contouring & Laser Center (MBody), led by ABPS board certified plastic surgeons, provides facelift surgery to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and surrounding locations in this part of the country.
Patients should be aware of various cost components that are typically involved in procedure such as facelift surgery. With a correct knowledge of the costs, the patient can make the right decision according to their budget and arrange for the necessary personal funds or third party financing well in time.
Patients should also be aware that the costs of facelift plastic surgery can vary from one practice to another, depending on where the office is located. Practices located in main metropolitan areas and prime urban centers typically have to bear higher real estate costs and other overheads, which could marginally increase their prices.
The fee charged by the surgeon will impact the overall cost of a facelift procedure. Patients should ideally choose an ABPS board certified plastic surgeon. These surgeons invest in high quality standards and best medical practices, adopt cutting edge facelift surgery techniques, and follow the latest safety protocols. According to the ASPS, a surgeon’s fee should only be a secondary consideration for a patient while selecting the surgeon.
Operating Facility and Anesthesia Financial Factors
Facelift surgery is usually performed with the patient under general anesthesia. Therefore, the costs of the anesthesia team should be considered as part of the overall financial ramifications. If the procedure is performed at an accredited, state of the art surgical center with advanced equipment, services and safety systems, it may cost a little more than average operating room.
Patients should also consider additional post-operative cost components in a facelift surgery as the costs of medical tests, prescription medications, surgical garments and post-surgical visits to the surgeon’s office. These seemingly minor expenses add up to be a considerable amount, and should be included when preparing a monetary amount estimate.
Insurance and Financing
As an elective surgery performed solely for cosmetic enhancement purposes, facelift costs are not likely to be covered under the patient’s health plan. But patients will have the option to get the procedure financed through a professional medical care financing firm or use other traditional financing options. Financing allows the patient to make payments in affordable monthly installments.
