Making Important Decisions about Eyelid Surgery
Patients should always select a surgeon to perform their procedure based on his or her credentials, skills, and experience – not the price of the surgery. Basing your decision on the physician that offers the lowest price can be dangerous. Inexperienced doctors may charge less than experienced doctors for eyelid surgery, but the quality of your eyelid surgery could be compromised.
Weighing Eyelid Surgery Cost
Qualified and experienced health care professionals typically do not provide a quote for eyelid surgery cost without a complete consultation. A consultation is necessary to determine the specific procedure needed to achieve the patient’s aesthetic or functional goals. The cost of eyelid surgery will vary based on your doctor’s decision to perform the procedure on either an outpatient or inpatient basis.
The cost will include:
- Surgeon’s fees
- Facility use
- Anesthesia fees
- Follow-up care (in some cases)
Will Insurance Cover My Eyelid Surgery Cost?
If there is impairment of vision, and upper or lower eyelid surgery is deemed “medically necessary” to improve the condition, insurance may cover part or all of the cost. If the procedure is purely elective (i.e., not medically necessary), insurance typically will not cover the eyelid surgery. Cost should not be the determining factor when searching for a doctor.
