The cost quoted above is indicative and should not be taken as the final cost of the surgery. The final cost can be ascertained after the surgeon has evaluated the patient. The cost in Indian Rupees can vary based on exchange rate.
Face lift cost in India starts from around USD 3,750 and varies depending on the extent of surgery required, your medical history, comorbidity- if you have any, surgeon, hospital and the city where you choose to get the surgery done.
Factors that affect Facelift cost in India
Plastic Surgeon's Fees
An important expense when it comes to your Facelift is your plastic surgeon's fees. IndiCure recommends highly experienced, skilled, board-certified surgeons who are capable of delivering natural-looking results. Although the charges may vary depending on the experience of the surgeon, you can be assured that you are in safe and skilled hands when you choose plastic surgery in India with IndiCure.
Type of Facelift
Depending on one's needs, men and women of all ages can benefit from different types of facelift procedures. For example, a mini-facelift could be a cost-effective option for someone with minor concerns, while others may need a deep, traditional face lift. IndiCure recommends you to explore the multiple facelift surgical options by meeting our plastic surgeon.
Another important factor that determines the cost of Facelift in India is the anesthesia cost- whether the surgery is done in GA or local anesthesia. Our team members at the hospitals will guide you with the anesthesia costs that are usually billed on an hourly basis, but you would be offered a package that is all inclusive, and that too at much discounted prices.
Having your Facelift in an accredited surgical facility by skilled and qualified medical staff is a critical factor. Moreover, the geographical location of this facility in India also affects the quote. But IndiCure provides you with a projected estimate that will be all inclusive and affordable.
The surgery-related expenses include the pre- and post-surgical expenses. The pre-surgical expenses are associated with the candidacy and the medical history of the patient. This also includes the routine medical exams and tests to ensure you're a good fit for face plastic surgery procedures. Post-surgical expenses can include prescription medications, post-surgery compression garments, and follow-up consultations.
We at IndiCure, understand that you travel with a budget in mind and do not like to be greeted by surprises after arrival in India. We thus club all these expenses and give you the package cost that is inclusive and affordable at the same time.
Your case manager shall give you an estimated cost of your surgery after discussing your medical reports with the surgeon. The final cost, however, shall be confirmed after your consultation with the surgeon.

Technically known as a rhytidectomy, face lift reverses the effects of age, gravity, genetics and sun damage, among others. It reshapes or contours the lower two-thirds of the face. The upper one third of the face is usually rejuvenated by brow lift or forehead lift and eyelid surgery.
Facelift surgery when combined with an eyelid surgery along with a brow lift or forehead lift, rejuvenates the entire face. When combined with other procedures such as rhinoplasty or chin and cheek augmentation, a facelift gives altogether a new and fresh look. The double chin can also be removed at the same time by liposuction.
Facelift rejuvenates the face by improving the signs of aging such as:
Lower eyelid creases
Creases extending along the nose to the corner of the mouth
Excess fatty deposits under the chin and jaw
Am I a good Candidate?
If you feel that your face looks tired and excessively old as a result of sagging, drooping and excessive facial creases, or have a slack jaw and neck line, or if you have any of the below mentioned problems, you may be a candidate for face lift. You should be in good physical health, physically and emotionally stable and have realistic expectations from the surgery.
Lines running from the corner of the nose to the corner of the mouth
Wrinkles, extra fat or loose skin in the neck.
Wrinkles or loose and sagging skin in the cheeks or near the cheekbones
Do not have a well-defined jawline
Type of Facelift Procedures?
There are a number of facelift options available in India to suit your needs. Some of them are listed below:
Standard or Traditional Facelift: Done under general anesthesia, this procedure is suitable for people looking for a complete facelift. It targets the larger area of the face and addresses various problems of ageing like sagging skin, lines around the mouth and creases around the eyes, jowls, fat on the face, etc.
Mini Facelift: It is less invasive and more focused on the lower cheeks, the jaw regions of the face, and the neck. Advantage of a mini face lift is that it causes less scarring (sometimes called short-scar facelift), swelling, pain and recovery time is less and the cost is also lesser than the cost of a traditional face lift.
Superficial Muscular Apo-neurotic System (SMAS) Facelift: This technique concentrates and tightens the deeper underlying tissue, the SMAS layer. It is a rather complex and extensive procedure. It lifts and tightens the cheeks, jowls, and the neck.
Minimal-access cranial Suspension (MACS) Facelift: It is one of the safest and most popular face lifting techniques. The procedure improves the jawline and excess jowling along with improving the grooves and lines running between the mouth and the nose. It also targets the saggy skin and wrinkles near the cheek bones.
One can also opt for additional procedures like blepharoplasty, rhinoplasty, facial implants, or fat transfers for more enhanced facial results. Our skilled plastic surgeons will guide you about what procedure you should opt for achieving your individual goals and optimizing the results.
How is Facelift done?
An incision is made at the temples above the hairline and follows it in front of the ear, extending the incision behind the earlobe in the natural crease.
The surgeon then separates the tissue and the muscles, trims or removes the fat and then tightens the underlying muscles.
He then tightens the deep muscles, pulls up the excess skin above it backwards, trims it and stitches it back.
What is the Recovery after Facelift like?
It is normal to have mild pain and discomfort for a few days after the surgery which can be managed with pain medications.
Your plastic surgeon shall advise you to wear a bandage on the face to avoid any clot formation, which shall be removed after a week along with the stitches.
You can resume routine activities and light exercises in about two weeks, and strenuous work and exercises after six weeks.
What Results Can I Expect from Facelift?
The results of the face lift are quite gratifying. You shall get smooth and taut skin on your face and neck which shall make you look younger and fresher than before.
The face lift is usually able to turn the clock back on your face by 8 to 15 years, depending on the procedure you require.

Thank you IniCure Health Team for all the support you provided my father. You deserve 6 stars for customer service. Your team was instrumental in selling up my Dad with Dr. Babu and other healthcare team. Your Professionalism is exceptional. You responded to my all concerns within 24 hours; you reassured me everything would be okay when I needed it the most; you showed compassion that I have never seen before. Dr. Babu successfully operated my Dad and we are so grateful for that.

Dr. Ruchika in India delivered efficient and professional service from the outset, matching up my weight and health concerns with the most amazing surgeon at the Apollo Spectra hospital in New Delhi, who made good all the promises that had been made, and MORE. All arrangements were executed seamlessly. Very glad I found them and will certainly be using them again, should the need arise.
Steve Gofast recommends IndiCure Health Tours. May 21, 2019
The IndiCure folks (Jagruti) hooked me up with THE BEST doctors for my heart issues. Period. The Physicians were thorough, professional, fast, proficient and affordable. Dealing with Indicure was super easy, super fast and a very pleasant experience. I HIGHLY recommend this process for those with no insurance or those who cannot afford the 20% co-pay for expensive procedures. Check the cost against prices in the USA folks.
