HOW MUCH DOES A FACELIFT COST IN ATLANTA?
A facelift in Atlanta can restore your youth and give you a younger, more attractive appearance. A facelift, also referred to as a rhytidectomy, is an in-demand cosmetic surgical procedure designed to rejuvenate the face and minimize overall signs of aging. If you're seriously considering a facelift, you're probably in the process of researching to evaluate if it could be the best procedure for you and if it's within your budget.
In this article, we will explore the factors that may impact your facelift cost in Atlanta, so you can make an informed decision.
Average Cost/Expected Cost Range of a Facelift
According to recent statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the average cost of a traditional facelift is $8,005. It can go as low as $3,500 for a mini facelift, but you may have to pay approximately anywhere from $13,000 to $35,000 for deep plane facelift surgery.
The average cost above is generally only a part of the total cost. It covers just the surgeon's fees and does not include other charges for anesthesia, operating facility fees, and other services.

What is Included in the Total Cost of a Facelift?
The average cost usually does not include all the charges you might pay. The total price of your facelift might include the following:
- Consultation fees
- Surgeon’s fees
- Postoperative medications
- Hospital stay costs
- Medical tests
- Post-surgery garments
What To Consider When Determining the Price of a Facelift?
There are multiple factors to consider when figuring out the price of your facelift surgery. Some of the several factors include:
The location of your surgeon or surgical facility is a major factor in determining your facelift cost. Some states have few plastic surgeons, while some have numerous surgeons and facilities that offer facelift services. Some regions like Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, Miami, Manhattan, and Dallas are hotspots for cosmetic surgeries, so facelifts there may be more costly than in other areas.
Also, if the cost of living in an area is high, it's safe to expect that the price of cosmetic surgery services will be equally high.
Expertise and Experience
Reputable, board-certified, highly experienced, and highly trained surgeons generally charge more than their less-experienced and less-qualified counterparts. With reviews and testimonials of great services and excellent results about these surgeons, you may also expect higher charges.
It's also important to remember that the total cost of your procedure includes other charges. These surgical fees include anesthesia, surgical facility fees, medical tests, and fees for any additional procedures that may be performed alongside your facelift.
Is Financing Available?

At the Georgia ENT and Plastic Surgery, we believe everyone should be able to access the transformative advantages of facial plastic surgery—no matter how expensive it may seem.

From our payment plans to our exclusive healthcare credit card payment options, we have financing options available for anyone looking to enhance their appearance.
Is It Covered by Insurance?
Generally, cosmetic surgeries are not covered by insurance. While certain plastic surgery procedures like blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) may be covered by insurance if they are deemed medically necessary to correct specific health problems, a facelift is considered elective cosmetic surgery and does not qualify. So you will have to pay out of pocket to cover the costs.
You may not use funds from a health savings account (HSA) or flexible spending account (FSA). The IRS does not allow you to pay for cosmetic procedures from these accounts.
The Benefits of a Facelift
There are several benefits to having a facelift, and these include the following:
- Reverses visible signs of aging, including sagging skin, deep fold lines and creases between the nose and corners of the mouth, jowls, and displaced fat tissue in the cheeks, jaw, and neck
- Tightens up sagging skin on and around the face
- Redefines your jawline and neck
- Gets rid of excess fat and tissue around the face
- Provides natural-looking, long-lasting results
- Can be had by both males and females
- Can be paired with other related cosmetic procedures
Am I a Good Candidate for Buccal Fat Removal?
You can consider cheek reduction surgery if you are uncomfortable with the volume of your cheeks. However, you may not be a good candidate for this procedure if you have a narrow face and are older.
Generally, you're an ideal candidate for buccal fat removal if you:
- Are overall healthy and at a stable weight
- Are a nonsmoker or someone who can quit smoking several weeks before the procedure
- Have realistic expectations
- Are concerned about full or chubby cheeks
Am I a Candidate for a Facelift?
There’s no precise age to have a facelift, but they are usually most beneficial to people in their 40s to 70s. This is because these people exhibit visible signs of aging.
Ideal candidates for a facelift include people who:
- Do not have medical conditions such as uncontrolled hypertension, uncontrolled diabetes mellitus, and blood clotting disorders that can affect or interfere with the healing and recovery process.
- Are nonsmokers
- Have good skin elasticity
- Have realistic aesthetic goals
- Have a BMI under 25
