Tip #1: The Anesthesiologist fees can double the cost of your California face lift!

However, if you find a skilled face lift surgeon, and you are a candidate for local anesthesia, (where you are awake) your plastic surgery costs can be remarkably reduced!

What is a California facelift?

A California facelift or "mini face lift" as some call it, is cosmetic surgery on the cheeks and chin.

Sometimes the mini facelift will include the neck as well; it depends on your personal build and skin integrity.

When you look in the mirror and see deep creases around your mouth, next to your nose (nasolabial folds) you are looking at the area that will be smoothed, lifted and tightened.

If you have a little sagging along the jaw line, that area will be "lifted" during the California facelift.

Other names that are used interchangeably are 3-day face lift, weekend face lift, lower face lift and mid face lift. Your personal face lift surgeon will explain what is included in your mini face lift.

Where will my surgery scars be?

The surgery scars will likely be in front of the ears, or perhaps in the hair line. The California facelift does NOT typically include any work on the eyes, nose, forehead or ears.

When calling about California facelift prices in Santa Barbara, California, we learned you may add eyes, nose, forehead or ear revisions to your face lift surgery if you wish.

Estimated cost of mini face lift:

  • $6500-$9800, in Santa Barbara, California.

(Estimate includes all plastic surgery costs for general anesthesia surgery. Estimated cost of plastic surgery does NOT include lab work or prescription medications)

Each additional procedure added to your facelift costs more and is priced separately. Most Cosmetic surgeons will help you decide which additional procedures will give you the best California facelift result.

TIP # 2: Did you know prices for plastic surgery vary between cosmetic surgeons by as much as $3000 for the same procedure?!

"Facelift: Experience matters-yours and theirs!"

Avoid the dangers of plastic surgery by knowing if your plastic surgery doctor has plenty of face lift experience and the necessary qualifications.

You can find a good plastic surgeon and check their experience level and qualifications by calling their office directly and speaking with the "patient care coordinator" or office manager. This is especially important if you want to have your plastic surgery abroad.

That phone call will be valuable. Glance over the "what to ask" section at the bottom of this page before making your phone calls.

You can get a good sense of the quality of plastic surgery center you have called by noting the tone and manner of the office staff. If they are welcoming, upbeat and friendly, chances are the Cosmetic Surgeon is too--their attitude often trickles down to their staff.

Top Cosmetic Surgeons make it a point to have the ambiance, or "feeling" in their Plastic Surgery Clinic inviting, enthusiastic, and "about you".

Your positive face lift experience depends on having a Surgeon who leads out with care and compassion. Their expertise in this area means you will be listened to, heard, and understood as you explain your specific personal desires for your surgery or any variation of face lift surgery.

You are your surgeon's unique work of art. Make sure you connect with your doctor.

Your healing after surgery will depend on how secure you feel under the hand of your Cosmetic Surgeon.

Anxiety and frustration diminish your healing capacity and add undue stress to your face lift experience.

If something doesn't feel right, don't question your instincts--keep looking for that perfect fit between you and your cosmetic surgeon and your California facelift and recovery after face lift can be a breeze.

  • Can you give me an estimate of California facelift costs?
