If you have significant sagging in the lower part of your face and neck, an ExpresS-Lift by Dr. Langdon may be a great choice. It’s a minimal incision facelift that can tighten the fascia layer in your face and neck so that you look years younger. If you’re interested in facelift surgery, you may be wondering “how much does a facelift cost?” Keep reading to learn the answer to this question.
The average cost of a facelift in 2018 was $7,655, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. This does not include anesthesia, operating room costs, or other similar expenses. It’s important to note that your unique aesthetic goals and treatment plan will dictate the exact cost of your facelift.
Because a facelift is a cosmetic treatment, rather than a medical necessity, you’ll need to pay for it out-of-pocket. Fortunately, we offer flexible financing plans that can make the cost of a facelift more affordable. We’ll be happy to work with you to design a financing plan that works well for your budget and lifestyle.
What Does the ExpresS-Lift Do?
Dr. Langdon performs the ExpresS-Lift under local anesthesia, allowing for minimal pain, bleeding, bruising, and swelling. In this procedure, the fascia layer beneath the skin is “lifted” (suspended), which reverses the sagging that results from gravity over many years. The procedure will rejuvenate the lower portion of your face and neck. It will also lift your checks, reduce the appearance of nasolabial folds, and rejuvenate the midface.
The ExpresS-Lift is more comprehensive than “mini” facelifts because it does more than tighten the skin. It’s a real facelift that tightens the fascia (connective tissue layer) beneath the skin. This layer is known as the Superficial Musculo-Aponeurotic System (SMAS). The un-tethering and suspension of the SMAS layer that is performed in the ExpresS-lift leads to the more dramatic results that you can expect with traditional facelift surgery.
Good Candidates for the ExpresS-Lift
If you’re in good general health and bothered by facial and/or neck sagging, the ExpresS-Lift may be a good option for you. Although the majority of the patients who undergo this procedure are middle-aged, many are younger and hope to combat the initial signs of a sagging lower face. Dr. Langdon can help you decide whether you’re a good candidate for the ExpresS-Lift during a consultation at our office.
I had a face lift done by Dr Langdon and I cannot say enough good things about the outcome. I had surgery seven years ago which was a big disappointment. Today I am a new person after the surgery the doctor performed. Doctor Langdon and his staff could not be nicer. All and all a wonderful experience!
