There are two types of blepharoplasty: upper blepharoplasty surgery and lower eyelid surgery.
Upper blepharoplasty surgery will involve incisions being made so that fat and skin can be removed. The skin will then be brought together with a thin stitch, within the natural crease of the eyelid.
The lower eyelid will involve incisions being made immediately beneath the lash line. This is ideal for any patient that needs fat to be added or removed.
You can also combine blepharoplasty with other treatments to reduce wrinkles and lines around the eyelid, such as laser skin resurfacing.
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the average cost for cosmetic eyelid surgery in 2019 was $3,282.
There are various factors that can impact the cost of eyelid surgery. This includes the geographic location of the clinic, the type of procedure carried out, and the experience of the surgeon.

Some of the different things that may be included in the cost are medical tests, prescriptions for medication, anesthesia fees, surgical facility or hospital costs, and the surgeon’s fee.
When it comes to blepharoplasty, it is just as important to make sure the surgeon is experienced and that you are comfortable with her as it is the final cost of the eyelid surgery.
