Plastic Surgery Costs - Facelift, Implants, Peels, Tucks

Dear Dr. Dave & Dr. Dee,

I have saved $2,000 for a vacation, but am thinking of a face lift instead. I have some vacation days coming up, and thought that I could get a face lift during this time. But, I would tell my coworkers that I went on vacation and that is why I look so refreshed when I return. What do you think?


Need a Refresher

Dear Need a Refresher,

Recovery from a face lift takes time, and some swelling and bruising may last about two weeks or more. So, depending on how long your "vacation" is, you may be back at work looking refreshed or a little bruised up.

In addition, the costs for a face lift range from $7,000 to $9,000. This cost might be even higher depending on whether other areas of the face are worked on such as the eyelids, below the eye, or skin procedures performed (see plastic surgery price list below).

Be sure the surgeon you choose is board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada, or listed on the Specialist Register for plastic surgeons if you are located in the United Kingdom. provides details about the various plastic surgeries and their associated costs ( The plastic surgery prices listed below include the surgeon's fee, anesthesia fee, operating room fee, and implant fee and are the average cost across the United States.
