Cost of a lower eyelid lift
Cost of Eyelid surgery
Lower lid hollowness following an overly aggressive lower blepharoplasty can likewise be improved. One must exercise care and caution, as lower lid skin and the underlying soft tissues are usually quite thin, and thus the lower lids are less able to conceal grafted fat. Fat grafting must be preformed conservatively here, with a plan for secondary and occasionally tertiary fat grafting procedures depending on the 'take' of the initial fat grafting surgery.
Many patients referred to me for treatment of these frustrating and difficult post-blepharoplasty problems have reported more than just a cosmetic improvement. Excessive removal of skin and fat during upper and lower blepharoplasty can impair normal lid function and cause or aggravate dry eye syndrome. In some cases the fat grafting procedure will restore suppleness and flexibility to peri-orbital soft tissues, make eyelid closing easier, and improve the truly irritating and aggravating symptoms of dry eye syndrome.
Cost of Lower Eyelid Surgery
Hello, the cost of lower eyelid surgery ranges from about $2,200 to $4,500 depending on how much you're having done. I break it down like this:
Just skin/minimal fat: $2,400-$2,600
Skin/significant fat removal or fat relocation: $2,600 - $3,200
Skin/fat work/ and a lid shortening (tightening) procedure: $2,800 - $4,000
I find that anesthesia fees are unnessicary as local anesthesia works great and the patients do wonderfully.
Hope that helps.

Eyelid Rejuvenation More Affordable than you Think.
Lower eyelid rejuvenation can be very affordable though the total cost can vary greatly by your location and by what is required to obtain the best result. Excellent lower lid rejuvenation can be obtained by nonsurgical, minimally surgical or a full surgical technique, depending on your needs.
In our area, cost ranges from $2,000 to $4,000, and reflect total costs; including anesthesia, if needed, and facility charges.
Regardless of cost, choose a plastic surgeon in your location who is well established and board certified in a specialty recognized for excellence in surgery of the face and eyelids.
Lower Eyelid Surgery Pricing Can Vary But Price Alone Should Not Determine Who You Go To
NEVER DISCOUNT YOUR FACE! It is dangerous to shop for cosmetic surgery by price alone. Eyelid surgery is intricate. There are many factors that go into determining price but your first concerns should be experience and results. It is much more costly to repair the eyelids the second time around so choose wisely the first time. Questions to ask:1)Who is performing the surgery? 2)What is the board certification in? 3)Fellowship training?
4)How many of these procedures has the cosmetic surgeon performed? 5)Can I see YOUR patients' before and after picture? 6)Do you perform the procedure in an Operating room that is accredited?7)Is there an anesthesiologist or a nurse anesthetist performing the anesthesia?8)Do you use a laser or a scalpel blade? 9) Do you make a skin incision or remove the fat from the inside of the eyelid? 10) Do you tighten the skin by removing it or using a laser?11) What are the benefits, risks and alternatives of the procedure.
These are just a few of the questions you need an answer to make an informed decision.
As an Ocular Plastic Surgeon my training is specialized to treat eyelid disorders. Where other physicians may spend a few days in their training working around the eyelids. Ocular Plastic Surgeons spend a minimum of 4 years working on the eye and eyelids and surround tissues. I perform laser blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery)transconjunctival ( from the inside of the lid). I tighten the skin with the same CO2 laser. I only perform the procedure in an accredited Operating room with a anesthesiologist for your comfort, safety and sterility.

All of the following are considerations:
Fat Removal with or without transposition
Lower Eyelid tightening

The range for the above for total cost would generally run anywhere from $2400 to $5000 depending on the services required.
Unfortunately, every situation is so unique that it is very difficult to generalize.

Cost of surgery varies between surgeons. The total cost will be determined by surgeon fees, anesthesia, facility fees, and type of lower eyelid surgery. There are many variations of the technique and I prefer fat transposition blepharoplasty. Raffy Karamanoukian Los Angeles
