How much does eyelid surgery cost?

The average cost of cosmetic eyelid surgery is $3,163, according to 2018 statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

Blepharoplasty costs can widely vary. The average fee referenced above is only part of the total cost – it does not include anesthesia, operating room facilities or other related expenses.

A surgeon's fee for cosmetic eyelid surgery will be based on his or her experience, the type of procedure used and the geographic office location.

Many plastic surgeons offer patient financing plans for cosmetic eyelid surgery, so be sure to ask.

Eyelid surgery costs may include:

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

When choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon in your area 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 Health Insurance

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.
