Eyelid Surgery, also known as a blepharoplasty, is a very popular facial procedure. As we age, eyelids may become fatty, begin to sag, and form hoods over our eyes. In some cases, “hooding” can advance and even affect eyesight. A blepharoplasty removes excess skin and fat from the eyelid and restores a fresher, rejuvenated appearance. A lower blepharoplasty can also remove the tired-looking bags from beneath a person’s eye, creating a more awake and refreshed appearance.
What eyelid surgery can treat
- Loose or sagging skin that creates folds or disturbs the natural contour of the upper eyelid, sometimes impairing vision
- Fatty deposits that appear as puffiness in the eyelids
- Bags under the eyes
- Drooping lower eyelids that reveal white below the iris
- Excess skin and fine wrinkles of the lower eyelid
Eyelid Surgery Cost
According to 2016 statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons the average cost of eyelid surgery is around $4,500 CAD. These costs can vary widely and the average cost referenced above does not include anesthesia, operating room facilities or other related expenses.
A surgeon's cost for eyelid surgery may vary based on his or her experience, the type of procedure used, as well as geographic office location.
When choosing a certified plastic surgeon in your area for eyelid surgery, remember that the surgeon's experience and your comfort with him or her are just as important as the final cost of the surgery.
Eyelid Surgery and Health Insurance Coverage
Most health insurance plans DO NOT typically cover cosmetic eyelid surgery or its complications.
However, when eyelid surgery is performed to eliminate the redundant skin covering the eyelashes, it may be covered by insurance. Carefully review your policy.
