What Does Eyelid Surgery Cost?
Blepharoplasty cost varies, depending on the region of the country where you live, the surgeon, the surgeon's subspecialty, the facility where the surgery is performed and the extent of eyelid surgery you need.
Prices for an eye lift range from about $2,000 for a simple procedure such as addressing both upper eyelids without removing fat, to $5,000 for a more complicated one such as surgery on all four eyelids, including removal of protruding fat.
These are estimates of surgeon's fees only. Charges for an ambulatory surgery facility or in-office operating suite are additional and can range from $800 to $2,000 per procedure.
If you are undergoing a functional blepharoplasty, then Medicare or your private health insurance likely will cover a major portion of the cost of the procedure. Your insurance company may require prior authorization before you can proceed with the surgery.
However, medical insurance companies do not pay for cosmetic eyelid surgery.
