Eyelid Surgery


Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure to improve the appearance of the eyelids. This surgery can be performed on the upper lids, the lower lids, or both.

Eyelid surgery cost

The average cost of eyelid surgery is $2,874, according to 2014 statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

Blepharoplasty costs can vary widely. The average fee referenced above does not include anesthesia, operating room facilities or other related expenses.

A surgeon's cost for eyelid surgery may vary based on his or her experience, the type of procedure used, as well as geographic office location.

Many plastic surgeons offer patient financing plans to help cover blepharoplasty costs, so be sure to ask.

Eyelid surgery cost may include:

  • Surgeon’s fee
  • Hospital or surgical facility costs
  • Anesthesia fees
  • Prescriptions for medication, and
  • Medical tests

When choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon for eyelid surgery, remember that the surgeon’s experience and your comfort with him or her are just as important as the final cost of the surgery.

Eyelid surgery and insurance coverage

Most health insurance does not cover cosmetic surgery or its complications.

When eyelid surgery is performed to eliminate the redundant skin covering the eyelashes, it may be covered by insurance. Carefully review your policy.
