The price is an essential starting point for many patients in plastic surgery procedures such as facelift. The insurance companies will generally not provide coverage for facelift because it is an elective procedure. Therefore, the patient will have to consider the dollar amount aspect carefully to match with their budget, and then make a decision.
At the time of initial consultation, the plastic surgeon will discuss various aspects of facelift, including its estimated costs. The first concern of a responsible surgeon will be educate the patient and help them to make a well-considered choice among various treatment options. The Virginia Institute, led by board certified plastic surgeons, provides facelift to patients in Richmond, Virginia, and surrounding communities.
The price of facelift plastic surgery will vary between two practices, and may even vary between two patients at the same practice in a few cases. The following factors will affect the actual monetary amount of the facelift:
Major metropolitan areas and leading urban centers typically have a higher average cost of living, which influences the cost of most types of products and services, including cosmetic procedures. On the other hand, smaller or interior towns will usually have a lower average cost of living. Therefore, where the practice is located will have a significant impact on the costs of facelift surgery.
A full traditional facelift or a deep place facelift technique may be applied if the patient needs substantive improvement to lift sagging facial skin, redistribute or remove facial fat, and tighten underlying facial muscles.
Some cases may also require facial fat transfer, facial implants, neck lift, upper facelift, or liposuction as additional surgeries. On the other hand a few patients may only require a maintenance procedure or subtle improvements through a partial facelift. The type and extent of facelift will determine the overall dollar amount of surgery.
Anesthesia and Surgical Venue Expenses
The fee charged by the anesthesiologist or a registered anesthetist nurse will differ according to their qualifications and experience. The plastic surgeon may perform facelift at a hospital, an accredited surgery center or a private surgical suite. The cost and benefits under each option will vary.
Plastic Surgeon’s Fee
The surgeon will usually charge a fee according to their skills, experience and recognition in the field of plastic surgery. The patients should ideally choose board certified plastic surgeons, who will invest in the advanced surgical techniques, ongoing training, and latest safety protocols to deliver the best quality standards for a procedure such as facelift.
The patient should check with the plastic surgeon about the payment methods and whether they have an affiliation with a professional medical care finance company. Third party medical financiers usually offer low interest loans for procedures such as facelift.
They will approve the loans quickly and offer flexible terms with easy monthly installments stretching up to 60 months. The patients can also explore other financing options depending on their needs, such as traditional bank loans, credit card payments, or personal relationships through family and friends and exploring the idea whether one of these people can lend someone the right amount of money to bring this idea to fruition.
