Facelift Cost in Fairfield County, CT

The cost of a facelift can vary dramatically depending on the complexity of your procedure, your surgeon's fees, and other expenses such as anesthesia and postoperative care.

Facelift cost is a very serious consideration, and Dr. Fredric Newman in Darien, CT, can provide you with an estimate for the cost of treatment, as well as financing options that can place the cost of a facelift comfortably within your budget.

Extent of Treatment

The term “facelift” actually refers to a variety of procedures that can be performed alone or in combination to meet a patient’s unique needs.

A mini facelift is intended to lift sagging jowls and provide better definition in the jaw. A brow lift targets the upper third of the face. A mid facelift treats the area surrounding the mouth, nose, and eyes. A full facelift can combine aspects of all of these procedures, including a neck lift to rejuvenate the area between the chin and collar. You should never compromise your facelift goals in the interest of saving money. Dr. Newman completely customizes each facelift he performs. A larger treatment area will result in more time spent in the operating room, which will increase your surgical cost. Meanwhile, secondary facelift procedures are more expensive than initial surgeries because they are more complex.

Additional Factors Affecting Facelift Cost

In addition to the extent of the treatment you desire, the cost of a facelift also depends on:

  • Pre- and post-op visits
  • Surgical fees
  • Anesthesia cost
  • Medications such as pain relievers

Many surgeons operate in hospitals or ambulatory surgical centers, and these third-party venues charge facility fees. Dr. Newman has his own fully accredited surgical center. While the cost of maintaining the center does factor in the cost of a facelift, it is significantly more economical than undergoing surgery in a third-party facility.

Weighing Surgeons’ Costs

If you are considering facelift surgery, this is not a time to go bargain hunting. Rather than base your decision on cost alone, you should consider your surgeon’s credentials and experience. Choosing a surgeon who is skilled in facial cosmetic surgery reduces the risk of dissatisfaction with your results. Remember: revisional and secondary surgeries always cost more than the initial procedure.

Dr. Newman has been practicing facial plastic surgery in Connecticut for decades, and has undergone extensive training with some of the most important innovators in his field. He also remains committed to ongoing education in order to master the latest and most effective surgical techniques. Meanwhile, as part of our commitment to exceptional care, facelift patients are assigned their own registered nurse to oversee their recovery in a private and comfortably furnished room. Our fully accredited surgical center is significantly more economical than undergoing surgery in a third-party facility.

Financing Options

Because facelift surgery is performed solely for cosmetic reasons, it is not covered by insurance. We feel that treatment cost should never be prohibitive, and that you should never compromise your goals as a cost-cutting measure. Our financing options place the results you desire within your reach. PatientFi and Comprehensive Finance are low-interest payment options that can break your total treatment cost into manageable monthly payments. We can fully explain these options during a consultation and help you apply, if needed.
