A Blepharoplasty procedure is a great way to improve the look of the upper and/or lower eyelids. This type of procedure can give those who are seeing the effects of aging in their eyes a more alert and youthful appearance. It typically involves tightening, lifting, or removing excess skin in the eyelid area.
On average, eyelid surgery will cost around $4,000, though it can range anywhere from $2,000 to $7,000. The different types of eyelid surgery can change the cost as well. On average, lower eyelid surgery cost is about $2,400, while the price of upper eyelid surgery is usually around $2,100. The cost of laser eyelid surgery is typically higher than that of conventional blepharoplasty and can be anywhere between $3,000 and $5,000. Some patients require both upper and lower eyelid surgery.
This type of procedure is usually cosmetic, except in the case of patients with ptosis, or severely drooping eyelids that hinder safe and effective vision. Insurance companies may cover all or part of the procedure’s cost for patients with this condition.
The result of blepharoplasty is vibrant, youthful eyes, improved visual field (if upper lid sagging was impairing vision), and a more alert and energetic appearance.
