Kirkland, WA, plastic surgeon discusses costs and the value you get from the facelift treatment process
As both a skilled and experienced surgical and nonsurgical aesthetic provider, Dr. Mark H. Tseng appreciates the advantages and limitations of the various types of treatments available to patients in Greater Seattle. The fillers, neuromodulators, and energy-based therapies that worked like a charm when you were younger, may not be as effective as you celebrate more years. As the aging process continues, and overlying tissues no longer fit the underlying structure of your face. There may come a time when it’s appropriate to discuss the Facelift Treatment Process in Kirkland, WA, and Auburn, WA, at the offices of Mark H. Tseng, M.D. Plastic & Aesthetics.
The surgical option may be the best option and the most suitable investment of your time and money. When in skilled and superbly-trained hands, the results of facelift procedures don’t look alien, “windswept,” or like you’ve had “work done.” Still, they provide a dramatic improvement in terms of helping you to look more rested, refreshed, and vibrant. They also provide results that are sustained in a manner that can’t be achieved with temporary fillers and neuromodulators like Botox; for instance, even patients who undergo longer-lasting fillers treatment can only expect to see improvement for up to around two years. Often, these injectable procedures only sustain results for up to around six months before you need to have repeat injections.
Costs of facelift treatment can vary considerably from person to person, depending on factors such as:
- The type of facelift – Dr. Tseng may recommend either a “full” facelift or a “limited” technique that focuses on the lower face. Additionally, you may be a good candidate for a neck lift.
- Combination procedures – Additional treatments add to the cost; for instance, neck lifts are often done in conjunction with full facelift surgeries to improve the appearance of wrinkles, neck, bands, and double chins.
- Ancillary services and products – Numerous components must come together to assure your safety and satisfaction with facelift treatment. For example, anesthesia and sedative options, follow-up appointments, pain control medications, and specialized support like compression garments. These items can add to your final cost.
Dr. Tseng is transparent about fees. He will discuss these considerations, as well as payment options, and answer questions you may have during a complimentary consultation.
