When first considering eyelid surgery, also called blepharoplasty, your research should begin with a board-certified facial plastic surgeon, one that makes you feel comfortable and has abundant experience performing the procedure. After that, however, you may be keenly interested to know the average cost of the operation, whether to help ensure you’re receiving a reasonable quote or to determine whether you can fit the desired enhancement into your budget. During your initial consultation, Dr. Ali Sepehr, our skilled facial plastic surgeon, will detail the fees involved for your specific case. To help you better gauge the costs, we have provided the following general information on prices.
As with all cosmetic surgeries, there are several factors that will play into the final cost, and the price will range depending on the complexity of your case. If you’re receiving just upper eyelid surgery or just lower, the cost will be lower than if you have both. Additionally, if you have both procedures simultaneously, that will save you money over the cost of separate operations. It’s also important to note that the final price will be the combination of several fees, including that of the surgeon, anesthesiologist, and hospital. Blepharoplasty can vary from about $2000 to $5000 for both upper eyelids or both lower eyelids, with an average hovering around $4475.
In some cases, blepharoplasty may be covered or partially covered by an insurance policy if your carrier determines you’re eligible. However, the majority of patients choose this procedure as an elective cosmetic enhancement, meaning insurance typically will not offer financial assistance. To help bring the cost of the operation into your budget, we offer financing options through CareCredit®, which offers a range of payment options with low monthly rates. If you prefer to pay for your surgery all at once, we accept all major credit cards.
