How Much Does A Brow Lift Cost?

Brow lift surgery is often done to help alleviate visible signs of sun-damage and aging on the upper face. The procedure can help patients achieve a happier, well-rested appearance while looking upwards of 10-15 years younger. Because of these exceptional results, most patients find the long-lasting benefits of the surgery to be a worthwhile investment.

When figuring costs, there are many aspects of a brow lift procedure to consider aside from the surgery itself. Let’s take a look at some of the pre-operative, surgical, and post-surgical expenses you can expect when pricing your surgery.

Pre-Operative Costs

For your safety, you will need to undergo several medical tests to ensure an optimal outcome prior to surgery. All medical testing and lab work is an out-of-pocket expense. However, pre-operative costs only reflect a small chunk of your overall surgery price.

Surgical Expenses

Your actual surgery is where most expenses will occur. Brow lift surgery typically takes anywhere from 1-2 hours. However, in more complex cases, the procedure can take longer making the price tag much higher. Dr. Lawton will help determine how long your procedure will take and what you’ll pay at the time of your in-person consultation.

Surgeon’s Fees

The majority of your surgical costs will go to your surgeon. The amount you pay can vary significantly based on your surgeon’s skill and expertise. Choosing a board-certified surgeon such as Dr. Lawton can ensure you’re getting the best possible outcome with natural-looking results.

Anesthesia Fees

During surgery, a skilled anesthesiologist will closely monitor your vitals and adjust your doses throughout. This certified specialist charges an hourly rate to keep you comfortable while your surgery is in progress.

Hospital & Facility Expenses

Facility fees account for a larger percent of your surgery. Hospitals and other accredited facilities charge on a per-hour basis. The more complex the surgery, the higher the ultimate price tag will be.

Post-Surgical Costs

Although minor, there are several post-surgical costs you might want to consider. These expenses can include everything from prescription pain medications, post-surgical garments, and even follow-up visits with your surgeon.

Combination Procedures

Brow lift surgeries are often paired with other procedures for enhanced results and a single recovery period. Combination procedures also offer patients a lower price tag in the long run because they’re able to save on anesthesia and facility fees. Dr. Lawton will talk to you about all of your options in-depth at your initial consultation.

Final Price for Your Brow Lift

According to the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery (ABCS), the price of brow lift surgeries can vary greatly with price tags ranging from $1,500 to $10,500. Most procedures in the Newport Beach or greater Orange County, California area cost an average of $6,050. Of course, considering the vast amount of variables, you’ll need an in-person consult to truly determine your final price.

Some surgeons will offer all-inclusive pricing, while others only account for the major expenses when customizing a quote. It’s important to ask your surgeon what’s included in the to ensure you have an accurate understanding of out-of-pocket expenses. Dr. Tenley K. Lawton provides upfront pricing for each patient that walks through her door.

Dr. Lawton did a wonderful job with my surgery. Her staff was helpful and caring. I was very impressed with the look of the office and even the gown you usually get in a doctors office (wrinkled green cotton)was black with gold and done in very good taste and made you feel special. I feel so much better about myself and should have had this procedure 30 years ago. You are never too old to fix something your are not happy with.
