Are you bothered by droopy eyelids or under-eye bags that make your eyes look tired? Blepharoplasty can rejuvenate the eye area and restore a youthful appearance to your eyes. However, one of the most important factors to consider before undergoing blepharoplasty is the cost. So how much does blepharoplasty cost?
What Is Blepharoplasty?
Blepharoplasty, often referred to as eyelid surgery, is a procedure that rejuvenates the eyelids and improves the appearance of tired eyes. Eyelid surgery involves removing excess skin and pockets of fat from the upper and/or lower eyelids, to address sagging skin in the upper eyelids and bags below the eyes. Blepharoplasty is often combined with a brow lift to correct droopy brows.
How Much Does a Blepharoplasty Cost?
According to the latest statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the average cost of blepharoplasty is $3,282. However, depending on the type of eyelid surgery performed, the cost can range from $2,100 to $7,000.
Blepharoplasty can be done on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both. Upper eyelid surgery costs around $ 2,100 on average, while the cost of lower eyelid surgery is about $2,400.
Laser eyelid surgery is also available and typically costs more than traditional blepharoplasty.
Factors That Affect The Cost Of Blepharoplasty
The cost of blepharoplasty can vary significantly depending on the following:
- Skill and experience of the surgeon
- Geographic location of the practice
- Complexity of the operation
- Surgical facility fees
- Anesthesia fees
When blepharoplasty is performed as an elective procedure the costs are not covered by medical insurance. However, most surgeons accept a variety of payment options for cosmetic procedures. Affordable financing is also available through CareCredit, which is a healthcare credit card.
If your eyes are making you look older than you are, blepharoplasty can help you regain a more youthful appearance.
