Over the last few decades, facelift has emerged as one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures in the US. Patients should ideally choose a surgeon with advanced skills and expertise to perform a facelift. The surgeon will discuss various aspects of the procedure, including its estimated costs at the time of facelift consultation.
Patients who have clear information about the procedure and make a well-considered decision will usually feel more confident about their choice and will appreciate the final results better. Committed and sagacious board certified female plastic surgeon Dr. Kristi Hustak provides facelift to patients in Houston, Texas, and surrounding communities.
Critical Financial Factors
Facelift costs can vary between two plastic surgery practices. In some cases, the costs may even vary between two patients at the same practice. Several factors will impact the actual cost of facelift, which may include:
The average living costs in major urban centers and areas around the West and East Coasts in the US will generally be higher than smaller towns in the interiors. The median household income, real estate costs, taxation policies and other characteristics will influence the living costs, which in turn determine the costs of a product or service, including surgical services.
Type of Facelift
Some patients may need a significant improvement in the facial appearance through a deep plane lift technique or a combination of traditional facelift and non-surgical facial procedures. On the other hand, some other patients may only require an in-office facelift or a mini facelift procedure, which is less invasive.
The cost of procedure will depend on the type and extent of facelift surgery performed in each case, and whether any additional procedures such as neck lift or upper face procedures are invovled.
Surgical Room and Anesthesia Costs
The cosmetic surgeon may have the option to perform a major facelift surgery at a hospital, an accredited surgical center or a private surgical suite. The cost of surgical facility will vary in each case, and the surgeon will explain the pros and cons of each option.
If the procedure is performed using general anesthesia, then the fees charged by the anesthesiologist or an anesthetist nurse can vary according to their qualifications and experience.
Fee Charged by the Surgeon
The facelift surgeon will usually charge a fee according to their skills, experience and recognition in the field of facial procedures. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, patients should choose the best surgeon for their needs, particularly for a complex procedure such as a facelift. Factors such as the surgeon’s fee should only be secondary to such a decision.
Although insurance coverage is unlikely for an elective cosmetic procedure such as facelift, most patients will be eligible to get the procedure financed through third party financiers.
A number of professional medical care finance companies offer competitive loans with quick approvals, easy monthly installments and low interest rates for a variety of cosmetic procedures. Experienced and pragmatic female cosmetic surgeon Dr. Hustak receives patients from Houston, Texas, and other areas across the horizon for a facelift.
