In 2007, the national average cost of blepharoplasty was $2,840. This price represents the physician/surgeon fees for cosmetic eyelid surgery. Because there are a few different eyelid surgery methods, the prices may vary depending on the technique used.
Also omitted from this average are the fees for surgical facility, anesthesia, location where the eyelid surgery is being performed, and popularity/experience of the blepharoplasty surgeon.
Although blepharoplasty is often considered a cosmetic surgery procedure, there is a chance that your insurance company may cover the costs incurred during the surgery. For example, if you are seeking eyelid surgery to reduce the amount of skin the sags over your eyes, causing impaired vision, you may qualify for coverage.
However, if it is determined to by your insurance provider that you are interested in eyelid surgery as an aesthetic procedure, you might not receive monetary compensation. If this is the case, you may want to consider patient financing. Those who opt for financing may establish a loan and payment plan that is right for them, allowing them to enjoy their eyelid surgery without worrying about paying for it in full, upfront.
