What Goes Into the Cost?
The total cost of your brow lift will depend on the extent of your procedure – which technique is used, operating time involved, and the type of anesthesia needed.
Other factors contributing to your overall cost include:
- Medical tests
- Hospital or surgical facility costs
- Anesthesia fees
- Post-surgery garments
- Prescriptions for medications
- Geographic location
- Surgeon’s fee
Surgeon’s fees are determined by his or her experience. Choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon is crucial for minimizing postoperative complications and recovery time. Generally, insurance does not cover brow lifts since they are considered a cosmetic procedure. In some cases, when vision is impaired, part of the cost may be covered if the procedure is proven to be medically necessary.
In many cases, brow lift surgery may be performed with other procedures, allowing certain costs to be combined. If your surgery also includes a facelift or eyelid lift, you’ll only pay the anesthesia fee and facility fee once, reducing your total expenses.
