Your eyes can communicate volumes – but if you have sagging eyelids or undereye bags, they may be communicating that you need more sleep.

Unfortunately, a full night’s sleep can’t help reduce the appearance of drooping eyelids and eye bags. These aging symptoms happen as fat and the skin’s elastin levels start to break down, meaning it’s more susceptible to gravity’s southward pull. 

That’s where a blepharoplasty procedure can help. This cosmetic surgery helps address excess sagging skin and fat around the eyes (upper blepharoplasty), as well as fat bags underneath the eyes (lower blepharoplasty). A blepharoplasty – more commonly known as an eyelid lift – can help erase years off of your appearance.

Let’s take a closer look at how much a blepharoplasty procedure can cost!

Average Cost of Eyelid Lift Surgery

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the average cost of eyelid lift surgery in the United States is $3,163. This data is derived from 2018 statistics, so the costs for a blepharoplasty in 2020 may be slightly higher.

What Factors Affect My Blepharoplasty Costs?

You may have to pay more than the cost quoted above – that’s okay! There are a number of factors that can influence your blepharoplasty costs, including the following:

  • Where you want the blepharoplasty performed (upper or lower eyelids)
  • General anesthesia costs
  • Surgical fees
  • Your plastic surgeon’s experience and expertise
  • The cost-of-living index where your plastic surgeon is located
  • And more

Can Insurance Cover my Blepharoplasty?

Health insurance doesn’t normally cover blepharoplasty costs, as it’s largely considered to be cosmetic elective surgery. 

However, if your doctor believes that your vision is negatively impacted by sagging eyelids (to the point where it’s impacting the quality of your life), your health insurance policy may cover some of your surgical costs.
