A facelift is a cosmetic procedure that reverses common signs of aging such as sagging and wrinkling skin on the face and neck. In this operation, a surgeon will make an incision, and then remove fat tissue and loose skin before closing the incision to tighten the face.
- Corrects the visible signs of aging
- Improvement of facial contour
- Repairs loose, sagging skin

Conducted by an experienced surgeon, this procedure is generally safe. However, as with any surgical procedure, there is a risk of complications including infection, bleeding and nerve damage. Ensure that you discuss potential risks with your surgeon.
Generally, costs average around $7000 to $10,000 for a full treatment. Note that costs will vary depending on the clinic and individual differences. Facelifts are considered to be ‘elective’ or ‘cosmetic’, so most insurance plans do not cover this cost. It is important to discuss costs as well as expectations thoroughly.
