How Much Does Blepharoplasty Cost?

The area around the eyes can often look puffy, droopy, and wrinkly. We offer a blepharoplasty procedure, also known as eyelift surgery, to rejuvenate the appearance of the upper and lower eyelids.

One important factor to consider when pursuing an eye lift procedure is the cost. There are many elements that determine the final price of this procedure with SightMD.

Costs Vary Across Eye Lift Procedures

Your individual goals for your procedure will play a large role in determining the final cost. For example, if your concern is puffy and tired looking upper eyelids, then you will have a slightly different procedure than someone who worries about prominent under-eye bags. Generally speaking, the cost for an eyelid surgery procedure will also vary depending on the surgeon’s experience and the type of procedure. Costs can also be impacted by other factors such as:

  • Anesthesia fees
  • Surgical facility costs
  • Prescriptions for medication
  • The geographic location of the office

A consultation with one of our physicians will help to provide the most comprehensive financial picture. They will listen to your concerns and tailor a specific procedure to fit your unique needs.

Will Insurance Cover Blepharoplasty?

Many people wonder what role insurance will play in their blepharoplasty procedure. This is a good time to distinguish between cosmetic blepharoplasty versus medical or functional.

Cosmetic blepharoplasty is performed to improve the appearance of the eye area. Insurance typically does not cover cosmetic blepharoplasty procedures, though you may consult your doctor.

If you are struggling with ptosis, a condition in which loose upper eyelid skin hangs down enough to impair your vision, then there may be an argument for medical necessity. Please contact your insurance doctor to see if you may qualify for coverage.

Blepharoplasty Financing Options

Financing options may be available to you through CareCredit. CareCredit offers monthly payment plans and financing options, allowing you to pay for your eye lift at a comfortable pace. They also offer short-term financing options in which no interest is charged when you make the minimum monthly payments and pay in full by the end of the established period.

Important Factors to Keep in Mind

We know that cost can play a large role in determining where you go for your eye lift procedure. However, ensuring that you will receive treatment at a welcoming facility with experienced ophthalmologists is equally important.

Our offices located throughout New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and Pennsylvania are professional and inviting. We also have an outpatient surgical facilities devoted entirely to eye surgery.
