Facelift and necklift surgery

Growing old gracefully with Dr Beldholm

All women want to look their best at any age. When you are in your teens and early 20’s all you need to do is apply make up and make sure you go to the hairdresser to look your best.

As the late 20’s and early 30’s approach maybe those early frown, smile and forehead lines start appearing and you start using muscle relaxant injections to soften your features. The skin may be starting to show early signs of aging, so you start attending a dermal therapist to freshen your skin up with laser treatments, microdermabrasion and other skin treatments.

As the late 30’s and early 40’s approach,the ageing process leads to loss of volume in the face and perhaps slightly deeper wrinkles and jowls. This is when you start getting dermal fillers to rejuvenate your features and restore lost volume.

Then in your mid to late 40’s you may notice that despite all the non-invasive cosmetic treatments you have been having, you start noticing the skin sagging and the neck getting a bit looser. This is when you consider a mini-facelift, and if there is significant loose neck skin, adding a neck lift to this as well. You may also have noticed that you have started developing a double chin. This can be treated with either liposuction under the chin or non-invasive injections now available.

In your 50’s and 60’s the skin may sag even more and you may consider a full facelift. The majority of men and  women who come to see Dr Beldholm in their 70’s require a full facelift, combined with a neck lift and liposuction, for the best result.

“It is all about looking your best for the age that you are at”

Dr Bernard Beldholm

Facelift and Necklift costs

There are many different types of Facelifts and Necklifts. Each individual patient is assessed by Dr Beldholm, and provided with a tailor made surgical plan, that will give them the best possible result. However, we have tried to give you an idea of the costs here.

The government changed the private hospital rules in March 2016 so that all facelifts and necklifts have to be performed in a fully accredited Private Hospital. Prior to  this you were able to have your mini-facelift under sedation and local anaesthetic, meaning that the costs were lower.

When looking at the cost for this procedure there are three costs we need to discuss;

  • Dr Beldholm’s fee.
  • Anaesthetis fee.
  • Hospital fee.

Most of these fees are time based.  The hospital charges approximately $1200 per hour (theatre time) in addition to day stay fees and overnight fees. The anaesthetist charges approximately $660 per hour. Dr Beldholm’s fee varies depending on the type of operation. In addition to this there are additional fees for things like tissue glue that improves the results of a facelift.

Mini-facelift

This operation takes approximately two hours to perform and you will not be required to stay overnight in the hospital.

Dr Beldholm’s fee

Surgical fee $4990

This fee includes;

  • Head garment.
  • Six treatments of LED light post operatively.
  • All follow up appointments with Dr Beldholm and his nurse, as well as any dressings needed.

Hospital charges

The hospital charges vary depending on what hospital you choose, but are approximately $1200 per hour for the operating time. The hospital usually adds 30 minutes to any surgical time estimate. There is also a day stay fee charge of approximately $500.

So you are looking at a cost of approximately:

$3500 for the hospital and adding GST is: $3850.

Anaesthetist fees

The anaesthetist also usually adds 30 minutes to the operating time, so their charge will be approximately $1650.

So the total all inclusive price for a mini-facelift with Dr Beldholm is between $9000 to $11000

Full facelift

This operation takes around four hours to do, and you will be required to stay in hospital overnight

Dr Beldholm’s fee

Surgical fee $8990

This fee includes;

  • Head garment.
  • Six treatments of LED light post operatively.
  • All follow up appointments with Dr Beldholm and his nurse, as well as any dressings needed.

Hospital charges

The hospital charges vary depending on what hospital you choose, but are approximately $1200 per hour for the operating time. The hospital usually adds 30 minutes to any surgical time estimate. Overnight  fee is charged at approximately $1000.

So you are looking at a cost of approximately:

$6400 for the hospital add GST to this $7040.

Anaesthetist fees

The anaesthetist also usually adds 30 minutes to the operating time, so their charge will be approximately $2970 (incl GST).

So the total all inclusive price for a Full facelift with Dr Beldholm is between $18,000 to $20,000

Additional options

Tissue glue

Tissue glue is proven to improve healing and reduce complications after a facelift. However, it is quite expensive, so Dr Beldholm offers this as a separate option. The tissue glue will be charged directly to you by the Hospital, and you are looking at approximately $800 extra for this.

Neck lift with neck liposuction

If you have platysmal bands then this option will give you a much better result with your neck area, and tighten, especially the under the chin area. The liposuction will get rid of any sub-mental fat.

This option adds one hour to the operation so you will need to add;

  • Surgical fee; $2000.
  • Hospital charges: $1200.
  • Anaesthetic Charges $660.

However, at some point, be it in your 40 or in your 60’s, you will start noticing loose skin and saggy tissue in the face, no matter how much filler, dermal therapy and other treatments you have, it is still there. This is when you should start considering a facelift.

“Being the head cosmetic injector for specialist skin solutions has taught me a lot about facial ageing. I see women from their 20’s to their 70’s. In the early ages I do wrinkles prevention and skin refreshment. In the later stages I do volume restoration, liquid facelifts, skin rejuvenation and much more. Seeing the ageing process every day and assessing and discussing this with thousands of women has immensely benefitted my surgical patients. It is all about creating a natural rejuvenated result.”

facelift before and after

*individual results vary

A facelift can last for up to 20 years. However, combatting facial ageing means first understanding what happens as we age. As a specialist surgeon, Dr. Beldholm takes an integrated approach to ageing, meaning all treatments are designed to complement each other, and are part of a complete treatment plan. For example, Dr. Beldholm incorporates a skin treatment plan as part of his facelift approach. He may also suggest wrinkle injections, as these can substantially improve your final result, if you decide to have a face lift.
