Your face is one of the first areas of your body to show visible signs of aging. As you get older, collagen production in your skin cells decreases, meaning they lose elasticity. Your face is the worst-affected place, as you’re constantly stretching the skin when making various facial expressions or talking. Thus, you end up with saggy facial skin that can make you look a lot older than you feel. It can cause self-confidence issues, which is why a facelift can be beneficial.
With a facelift, you undergo surgery that helps to tighten sagging skin, remove excess fat, and make you look younger. The effect is that your face has been ‘lifted’ with no more saggy skin showing. It’s one of the most popular procedures offered by Dr. Brenman, and he can also combine it with a neck lift for better results.
Average Cost of a Facelift
According to data from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the average cost of a facelift is $7,467. This was based on statistics taken throughout 2019, which are the most recent figures out there. However, it’s important to note that this average cost is not inclusive of every aspect of the procedure. It simply refers to the cost of the facelift itself, which is usually defined as the surgeon’s fee.
Factors that can Influence Facelift Costs
There are plenty of factors that can influence the final cost of your facelift. Of course, the experience of the surgeon will play a significant role in setting the price. More experienced and trusted surgeons are inclined to charge more, as the patient is paying for better service than if they opted for a less experienced plastic surgeon. The geographical location of the surgeon also comes into play here, with certain areas of the country having naturally higher rates than others.
Alongside this, you also have to consider:
- The cost of using the surgical facilities
- Anesthesia costs
- Any medication costs
- Post-surgery garment costs
- The cost of any medical tests beforehand
- Any additional procedures included

Benefits of a Facelift
A facelift is specifically designed to get rid of wrinkles and reverse the effects of aging. It will leave you with tighter skin on your face that no longer droops or sags, making you look far younger than before. Clearly, this leads to a massive confidence boost, making you feel a lot better about how you look. With Dr. Brenman’s facelift procedures, you also benefit from having a short scar that’s virtually invisible, giving more natural results. Speaking of which, the results can last for an extremely long time, making you look younger for longer!

Any worries or concerns can be dispelled during your consultation with Dr. Brenman, helping you feel confident that you’re making the right decision.
“After losing 87 pounds I decided I would treat myself and get a tummy tuck that I have been wanting for some time. I researched and thought Dr Scot Brenman would be best. Well suffice it to say I am not thrilled with my results. Ultimately my tummy is flatter which was what I wanted but my belly button is 2 inches above the incision line which I hate! He promised lipo which til this day I’m betting he didn’t do! Also his aftercare was thee WORSE! He never followed up with me after the removal of my drains! No way will he receive another one of my hard earned dimes!” *
