Cost of eyelid surgery in California

Every blepharoplasty is different. It may involve upper or lower lids or both. It may involve very delicate restructuring or be a simple skin excision.

The average upper and lower eyelid procedure will take 1.5-2 hours and the costs including OR and anesthesia is in the range of $5-7 K. A simple upper lid under local might be $2,000.

Remember that much more important than the price is the result you will achieve as you are going to live with this forever.

Blepharoplasty Cost

Pricing varies greatly depending on the surgeon and city in which they operate, as well as other factors. It's better to first find out which surgeon you'd like to have perform your surgery, then ask how much they charge. This way quality is your governing factor.

In Toronto, blepharoplasty can range from $4500 to $7000, with the lower range referring to the upper or lower eyelids only.

Blepharoplasty pricing in California

Blepharoplasty pricing vary depending on geographic location and the cost structure of the surgeon. Expensive areas such as London, New York or Los Angeles or areas with fewer board certified plastic surgeons will have higher prices than South Florida. We charge starting at $2000 for Upper Blepharoplasty. Lower Blepharoplasty starts at $2000. Because of the lower costs in South Florida and many surgeons with high standards, patients will come from throughout the country and world for surgery.

You should consult with surgeons who own his or her own nationally accredited surgery center for the highest standard of care and for cost containment.

Consult with 3 experienced and expert board certified plastic surgeons to understand your options.

Cost of Eyelid Surgery

Each surgeon’s fees will be different depending on many factors.  Factors such as the certification of the surgeon, the experience of the surgeon, if the surgery is performed in the office or in a hospital / outpatient surgery center, if performed under local anesthesia or general anesthesia and who is administering the anesthesia.  Don’t choose your surgeon ONLY by price, make sure they can achieve your goals.

In my practice, Upper Blepharoplasty can range from $3500-4500, Lower Blepharoplasty's range is about the same, if both are performed together, the range would be $5000-7000.

Hi Anthony,

The cost of blepharoplasty varies depending on whether you have upper, lower, both, and whether it is performed in the surgeon's office with or without an anesthesiologist. The price may vary from $2500 to $10000. Choose your surgeon carefully to avoid costly revisions. Good luck and be well.
