Default question about facelift.

I was wondering if anybody can tell me what the cost is of a basic facelift?? and how does the results compare to that of botox??

Thanks in advance.

Well a full face lift can run in the neighborhood of $10,000 all the way up to $20,000 or more. Botox is really just a wrinkle relaxer that isn't meant to achieve the same results of a face lift (Botox relaxes wrinkles, but a face lift will lift and tighten sagging skin). I hope this helps!

Thanks..and yes, you were once again very helpful.
Wow..how expensive!!!
I suppose at the same time I should not be too surprised to hear that since if it were not for the price we would likely see alot more people gettng it done.
Would you happen to know how long the effects of one facelift would last??
It might not be so bad if it was just a one time deal that would last a good 10-20 years but I know that is probably not how it works. Although with all the modern advances, maybe they have revolutionized it to do so.
Thanks again for being such a help!
