Blepharoplasty or eyelid lift plastic surgery is commonly performed as an elective cosmetic procedure, and insurance coverage may not be available for elective surgery. Therefore, cost becomes an important starting point for many people seeking blepharoplasty.

Factors Influencing the Monetary Amount
Lower and upper eyelid plastic surgery costs can differ from one practice to another. Geographical location of the practice can play a key role. Practices located in major metropolitan areas or prime urban centers will usually have higher costs because of the relatively higher cost of living in such regions. On the other hand, a practice in a smaller town in an interior region may offer slightly lower costs.
The quality standards of treatment, personalized care and attention, technology, and expertise of the staff members are some of the factors that will make a difference to the overall cost. Cost implications will also vary according to the surgical venue, which could be a hospital, an ambulatory surgical center or a private surgical suite.
Surgeon’s fee can differ according to their qualifications, certifications, skill and experience in performing facial cosmetic procedures. Whether the services of an anesthesiologist or a nurse anesthetist are used will also impact the costs.
Some patients may require either upper or lower blepharoplasty, while some others may need both. In some cases, eyelid surgery may be performed in conjunction with other surgical or non-surgical procedures such as brow lift, fat transfer, injectable fillers, or Botox. The price tag will vary case by case, and a special rate or discount may be available for combined procedures.
While blepharoplasty is typically treated as an elective surgery, a notable exception may be a situation where the patient suffers from ptosis. This condition involves heavily droopy eyelids, which may obstruct clear and safe vision. Full or partial costs of the surgery may be covered by health insurance in such cases.
The patient should discuss with their insurer well in time in such cases. The surgeon’s office may be able to offer guidance and support with regard to fulfilling the insurance formalities and paperwork. Experienced plastic surgeons at MBody receive patients from Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredricksburg, and nearby areas.
Some practices may accept payments through credit cards and checks for procedures such as blepharoplasty. The payment can be made in parts with the help of extended credit card payments. Specialized medical care finance companies offer loans that are designed for elective cosmetic procedures.
These loans are usually offered with lower interest rates and convenient monthly installments. The loans are approved quickly and installments can be spread over a period of up to 60 months. Patients may also explore traditional financing options such as bank loans and even asking their loved ones or some friends for a person loan.
