The average cost of a facelift is nearly $6,600, based on 2013 figures furnished by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. However, the actual expense of a facelift can be higher, because this amount may not cover fees associated with the procedure such as anesthesia, operating room use and other costs.
Although $6,600 may be an average cost for this procedure, it can be higher based on the surgeon's fees. A plastic surgeon's fees may be related to his or her experience and geographic location, explains the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
A facelift, which is also called a rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure that can rejuvenate the face by reducing the signs of aging. A facelift can improve the appearance of facial wrinkles, sagging skin and loss of skin tone. This surgical procedure can involve tightening tissues and the repositioning of facial skin, reports WebMD.
