What Goes into the Cost of an Eyelid Lift?
This procedure can be done for cosmetic reasons, to counteract a tired appearance, or for medical reasons to improve vision. Eyelid surgery costs can vary widely depending on a number of factors, including the extent of the surgery you need (upper, lower, or both).
Other contributing factors include:
- Medical tests
- Anesthesia fees
- Facility expenses – ambulatory surgery facility or in-office operating suite
- Surgeon’s fees
- Prescriptions for medication
- Follow-up visits
A surgeon’s fees will be based on his or her experience and whether they are board-certified, as well as your geographic location. When both upper and lower surgeries are completed at the same time, you can save money in the long run.
Health insurance companies don’t typically cover cosmetic procedures. In some cases, where a vision test confirms a medical reason, your insurance may cover the cost.
