Ptosis Costs

The costs are highly variable and depend on whether any or all of the surgery is considered cosmetic or functional. In the Northeast, ranges vary between $3500-4500 on average.

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.

Ptosis surgery and blepharoplasty

Fees vary widely across the country. Correcting ptosis is generally a medically necessary procedure that you could combine during your blepharoplasty procedure.  Out of pocket you would pay an additional $1000 - $4000 more than just blepharoplasty depending on the extent of the ptosis.

Ptosis and Blepharoplasty

Ptosis, meaning drooping of your eyelids, is typically a condition that results in some visual field loss, and is thus a medically necessary condition, often times covered by your insurance company. If you combine this procedure with a Blepharoplasty, your costs should fall in the $2500-$3500 range, more if you have a lower lid Blepharoplasty at the same time

Cost of ptosis surgery

According to RealSelf, the average cost of this procedure across the country is $3800.  I think this likely does NOT include the cost of the blepharoplasty.  Please keep in mind that ptosis repair is an VERY complicated procedure to perform and requires a highly trained oculofacial specialist for best results.  Check out the directory at
 Good luck!
