For the most part, the vast majority of cosmetic surgery procedures are not covered by health insurance. Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) is no exception. If you are having eyelid surgery because your field of vision is affected by extra eyelid skin bulging over the upper eyelids, then your health insurance policy may cover the procedure. You will have to review your policy to know for sure.
The cost of eyelid surgery varies widely across the country, and the American Society of Plastic Surgeons says the average cost is $2,874 according to their 2014 statistics. That figure may be higher or lower based on several factors, such as:
- Surgeon's fee
- Anesthesia fees
- Facility costs
- Geographic region
The only way to get an accurate assessment of how much the procedure will cost for you is to visit experienced cosmetic surgeon Dr. Basil Pakeman. During your consultation, he will not only help you decide if eyelid surgery is capable of achieving the final results you want to see, our team will also let you know about the cost and your financing options.
