After falling out of favor among aging Americans the last few years, the number of facelift operations last year grew 4 percent, to 131,106, statistics released Thursday by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons reveal.
The number of facelifts performed in the US, at $15,000 to $25,000 per face, had fallen in 2015 and 2014 as patients opted instead for less invasive and expensive procedures like Botox injections.
Botox can run someone $300 an area.
“You can turn the clock back a bit with Botox — but it keeps on ticking,” said ASPS President Debra Johnson. “Ultimately, nothing rejuvenates the face like a facelift from a board-certified plastic surgeon.”
