As of March 2015, a mini face-lift has a typical minimum cost of $3,500, according to Plastic Surgery Portal. It is an elective surgery, so it is not covered by insurance. Total cost is determined by multiple factors, including type of anesthesia, facility and medication prescribed following the procedure.
A mini face-lift focuses on the lower two-thirds of the face and the neck, states DocShop. It is not intended for the eye area. The procedure is done on an outpatient basis and usually takes 40 to 90 minutes to complete. Costs vary by location. The national average cost in the United States is $5,000.
