When we talk about how long a lower facelift lasts, what we’re really talking about is when you might begin to notice a little bit of sagging around the jawline, or a little more laxity underneath your chin or in your cheeks. This usually occurs between 10 to 15 years. When we perform a lower facelift it rewinds time, making you appear 10 to 15 years younger, and if you never did anything else, you’ll always look 10 to 15 years younger.

At the 10 to 15 year mark, some people might want to address any new signs of aging but it’s not as if the face goes back to the way it was before surgery. The changes will be subtle and will continue as you age.

How much does a lower facelift cost?

The coast of a lower facelift depends on your surgeon, what they plan to do and their geographic location. The costs range anywhere from $5,000 up to $25,000, which may include anesthesia costs as well as the cost of other procedures being done at the same time.

Is a lower facelift worth it?

Everyone on whom I’ve performed a facelift would absolutely say yes. It’s the best gift that they’ve given to themselves. They feel good and look good. To see a big difference, the patient has to be that person who has enough laxity. It’s important to have a consultation with a facial plastic surgeon who can evaluate you and discuss your options to make the best decision.
