If you’re looking for a way to turn back the clock and look years younger, few options are as effective as a facelift. With dramatic results that last a decade or more, many patients find this procedure well worth the cost to reclaim their youthful appearance.

What is a Facelift?

A facelift is a surgical procedure designed to reduce the signs of aging in the face and neck. It involves removing excess skin and tightening the underlying muscles and tissues to create a smoother, more youthful appearance. A facelift can address various concerns, such as sagging skin, deep wrinkles, and jowls.

Board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Stein performs more than 100 facelift procedures every year. He has the expertise and experience to give you dramatic but natural-looking results that take years off your appearance.

How Much Does a Facelift Cost?

The price of any cosmetic surgery depends on several factors, including your geographic location, the surgeon’s experience, and the complexity of the procedure. The average cost of a facelift in the United States is $8,005. However, this estimate doesn’t include all associated expenses, such as facility fees and anesthesia. 

Your facelift cost will be based on your unique procedure, which Dr. Stein will tailor to your needs. Some patients also have other procedures performed simultaneously, such as a brow lift or eyelid lift, which will increase the cost. We encourage you to schedule a consultation with us for an accurate quote.

How Does a Facelift Work?

During a facelift, Dr. Stein will make well-hidden incisions around the hairline and ears, allowing him to access the underlying tissues. He will then lift and reposition the tissues and muscles, removing any excess skin before suturing the incisions closed.

What to Expect After a Facelift

After a facelift, patients can expect some swelling, bruising, and discomfort for a few days. Dr. Stein will prescribe pain medication as needed and give you detailed aftercare instructions to ensure a smooth recovery. Patients usually return to work one to two weeks after a facelift. You’ll need to wait approximately a month to resume strenuous exercise, and full recovery takes a few months.

Facelift Results

The majority of visible swelling and bruising should fade within two weeks, and you’ll start to see improvements in your appearance. However, it may take several months to see your full results. 

The longevity of facelift results can vary depending on several factors, such as your skin condition, age, and lifestyle habits. A good skincare routine, a healthy lifestyle, and protecting your skin from sun damage are all essential to long-lasting results. A facelift typically lasts a decade or more.

Am I a Good Candidate for a Facelift?

If you want to rejuvenate your appearance and reverse the signs of aging, a facelift offers effective and long-lasting results. Ideal candidates are overall healthy and have realistic expectations for the outcome.

Dr. Stein provided excellent outcomes. The resulted look natural and are consistent with what was explained before the surgery. I recommend Dr. Stein to everyone.
