What is a Facelift with Chin Augmentation Like?
Dr. Stein performs facelifts on the lower face, midface, or entire face. Depending on the area, the incisions will nearly disappear behind the ear in the hairline. You will be under anesthetic during the procedure and will feel nothing. Dr. Stein will readjust the tissues and skin, lifting them to a more youthful and sculpted position.
If you have chosen chin augmentation, Dr. Stein will then turn his attention to your chin and place the implant inside the chin. This takes very little time compared to the facelift but still carries risks just like any other procedure.
You can go home after a period of observation, but you will need someone to drive you and help you with your daily tasks for a day or two while you recover. Swelling, bruising, and soreness from a facelift often require a few days of prescription medications followed by over-the-counter pain relief.
How Much Will These Procedures Cost?
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, an average facelift costs about $8000, and an average chin implant costs about $3200. These costs do not include expenses such as anesthesia, hospital fees, medications, and others. You may reduce these costs somewhat by having the facelift and chin augmentation together, preventing two sets of fees for some services.
