Facelift Cost San Antonio
As we age, our skin loses elasticity, allowing wrinkles, deep lines, and sagging skin to appear on the face. Dr. Constance Barone offers facelift surgery for patients who wish to rejuvenate their appearance. Dr. Barone tightens the skin of the face, smoothing wrinkles and creating a lifted, more youthful appearance.
As with any plastic surgery, we encourage our patients to ask questions and educate themselves thoroughly before making a decision. Patients are usually curious about facelift cost. At our San Antonio offices, facelift surgery begins at $6,500. That cost varies according to the intensity of the treatment and the type of anesthesia used.

How is a Facelift Performed?
A facelift, also known as a rhytidectomy, is the surgical tightening and redraping of the skin and underlying tissues of the face. To make these adjustments, Dr. Barone may make incisions at the temples , behind the ears, in front of the ear lobe, or a combination of these incisions. She can remove excess skin, tighten remaining skin, and adjust the muscle and tissue beneath the skin to achieve natural-looking rejuvenation. Finally, Dr. Barone carefully closes the incisions, which result in minimized scars obscured by the hairline and the folds of the ears.
In addition to her precision and experience with facelift surgery, Dr. Barone is nationally respected for her expertise in awake facelifts performed under local anesthesia. Patients feel little or no pain during this treatment, and remain awake while it is performed. An awake facelift is a great option because it is less expensive than IV sedation, and does not cause the nausea and disorientation that often follows surgery using general anesthesia.
What Can I Expect from a Facelift?
Facelift surgery, like all other plastic surgeries, is an investment in a patient's physical appearance and their self-confidence. To help place the cost of this surgery comfortably within your budget, Dr. Barone accepts all major payment methods and offers financing options including CareCredit™ and in-house financing for qualified candidates. For many patients, the emotional and physical benefits of a facelift are well worth the cost.
Following a facelift, patients usually experience some bruising, swelling, and soreness. Patients are sent home with bandaging that will protect their sutures, and pain medication to ensure comfort during recovery. During a follow-up appointment, Dr. Barone will make sure that the patient's face is healing properly, and that the results are consistent with the patient's goals. During the weeks following surgery, patients' facial swelling will decrease and final results start to become apparent.
Many patients choose to undergo additional surgeries while undergoing a facelift, including eyelid surgery, lip injections, and even body procedures. By undergoing several treatments at once, patients can consolidate healing time and take less time away from work and other obligations. If you are curious about facelift surgery or any of the other procedures we offer, contact our offices to schedule a consultation with Dr. Barone.
