The costs of cosmetic surgery are not always easy to discuss, but it is an important topic that is worth bringing up. For the purposes of this discussion, keep in mind that there are many different plastic surgeons who can perform facelifts in Toronto and their methods of pricing will all vary slightly from one practice to another. The values given here should be taken as ballpark amounts and not as hard-and-fast standards.
A Toronto facelift can cost anywhere from $13,500 to $22,000 (before HST). Where your individual price falls on this scale will be determined by a combination of the individual surgeon’s prices plus how much or how little work you wish to have done, as this affects the complexity of the surgery. Keep in mind that “complexity” is a very relative term here. A facelift is one of the more involved types of plastic surgery and even the simplest one demands great skill and care.
There are other fees that come with getting a facelift in Toronto. Some of these are optional while others are mandatory but are folded into the final price so you won’t be paying “extra” for the services.
It is not uncommon to have to pay a small consultation fee when booking your appointment. The fee is normally deducted from the final price and covers the time it takes for the surgeon to sit down with you, go over what your goals are for your facelift, and to devise the specific procedure and approach that will best meet your aesthetic goals.Consultation fees are normally in the $100 range.
Digital imaging is when computer modeling is used to show a prediction of what your face will look like following surgery. This service is usually complimentary when a surgery is already booked, but you may need to pay a fee of around $200 if you wish to have imaging done before committing to an appointment. If you like what you see and decide to take the next steps, then the imaging fee will typically be deducted from the surgery payment.
A Toronto facelift is a procedure that requires general anesthesia and even if a surgeon has a private clinic the surgery itself will usually be done at a local hospital or an Outpatient facility. It may be possible to request that the surgery be performed at a private surgical centre instead, in which case you can expect additional fees of $500-$1,000. Keep in mind that the available locations for surgery will heavily depend on the individual arrangements of a given practice.
A facelift is a cosmetic procedure and OHIP will not cover the costs of surgery. This can make it tricky for some to afford a Toronto facelift in a single payment. Fortunately, there are financing options available.
The exact types of patient financing that you can find will vary from surgeon to surgeon, as each practice may have different arrangements. If you want to make sure you will have financing before settling on a surgeon, then look up financing providers like Credit Medical or Medicard.
As a final note, although you may find surgeons who offer discounts or sales on certain cosmetic procedures, be very wary of anyone offering rates significantly below those described here. Plastic surgery is not immune from fraudsters or those who would be less-than-scrupulous to make money. If a price sounds too good to be true, then it probably is
