Since each blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) is custom-tailored to meet the individual’s unique goals, the price of the procedure will vary from patient to patient. Factors that can influence the cost of your procedure may include:
- Whether you choose upper blepharoplasty, lower blepharoplasty, or to combine both procedures
- The complexity of your procedure based upon your anatomical needs
- The type of anesthesia used and the skill of your anesthesiologist
- The experience of your plastic surgeon
Some patients also choose to combine blepharoplasty with a brow lift for a more complete facial rejuvenation, which can add to your total cost.
In most cases, upper eyelid surgery will cost less than a lower eyelid surgery since lower eyelid procedures tend to require fat removal as well as skin removal. In addition, depending upon your insurance company and the severity of upper eyelid drooping, your provider may cover the cost of an upper blepharoplasty if the surgery is considered medically necessary. Your insurance company may require photo documentation, a clinical exam performed by your physician, and a visual field test performed by your ophthalmologist to determine your eligibility for full coverage.
