I was interested in doing a facelift…

Question: How much does a facelift typically cost?

Answer: That is a tough question to answer as it depends on who is doing it and what type of facelift you are talking about.  The term facelift is also very confusing because some people believe that a facelift includes lifting the cheek and the brows; whereas others use the term to describe a lift of the lower face and neck only.  Some facelifts take 2 to 3 hours; whereas others can take 7 to 8 hours.  It also depends on what market you are in, as in New York City the costs would probably be more expensive than Boise, Idaho, for example.  Also, if you are having other combined procedures like a blepharoplasty (cosmetic eyelid procedure), that can add to the cost.
