Are you unhappy with how your eyes are aging? Do your eyelids sag and make you look exhausted all the time? Blepharoplasty can rejuvenate the eyes, and revitalize your overall appearance. The procedure is often done for its aesthetic benefits, but can also correct functional issues. But how much does blepharoplasty cost.
Blepharoplasty for eyelid rejuvenation
Blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery is a procedure that is done to rejuvenate aging eyes. The procedure focuses on correcting sagging and puffiness in the upper eyelids, as well as bags underneath the eyes.
Eyelid surgery is typically done on an outpatient basis, and lasts for 1-3 hours, depending on the extent of surgery. The incisions for upper eyelids surgery are made along the natural lines and contours of the eyelid, and the incisions for lower eyelid surgery are made inside the lower lid.
How much does a blepharoplasty cost?
The overall expense of eyelid surgery will depend on whether upper blepharoplasty, lower blepharoplasty, or a combination of both procedures is required.
In general, blepharoplasty on both the upper and lower eyelids costs about $4,000-$5,000. However, when surgery is performed on the upper or lower eyelids only it may cost in the region of $2,500.
The cost of blepharoplasty includes several components as it reflects the geographic region, surgeon’s fee, cost of anesthesia, and cost of the operating facility. The price of surgery may also be influenced by the specific technique used to perform the operation.
When it comes to aesthetic procedures such as blepharoplasty, cost is often a restrictive factor. It’s for this reason some physicians partner with healthcare lenders that offer financing (click here to learn more).
