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.
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.

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
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.
What is the cost of lower eyelid surgery?
The cost of lower eyelid surgery is variable. Some of the factors that determine the cost of the surgery include:
1. The complexity of the surgery required
2. The type of anesthesia that is used
3. The experience level of the surgeon
4. The region of the country that you live in
Some lower eyelid surgeries simply require removal of fat in order to provide a more refreshed appearance. This type of procedure is often done on the inside of the eyelid and can be accomplished on most people under local anesthetic. If this is all that is required and the procedure is done under local anesthetic in the office then it is reasonable to spend between $2000 and $3000. I usually charge around $2500.
If the eyelid is weak, then the procedure may require tightening by attaching the tendon of the eyelid in a more elevated and lateral position. This is a bit more complex and may require general anesthesia which will add to your cost.
Often times, patients have fine wrinkles on the eyelids in combination with bulging which may require laser resurfacing as well as surgery to get the patient the results he or she desires.
Many people who have lower eyelid bulging also have a hollowing effect in the cheek underneath the eyelid and would benefit from some type of filler in order to provide a nicely blended effect from the cheek to the eyelid.
All of these are considerations when evaluating a patients lower eyelid region. I would consult with at least two qualified and experience surgeons who will give you a thorough analysis and an effective treatment program. Good Luck!
