How much does laser surgery for a mucocele typically cost when you have insurance?

I have a small bluish colored bump on the outer portion of my lower lip. It comes up for about 1-2 weeks at a time. I believe it is a mucocele. It goes away for a week or two, but it comes back very quickly. I feel like it is always there so I am considering treatment. I read that laser therapy is the most effective means of treatment. How much does this treatment usually cost if I have insurance?

Thanks for your query. The laser treatment for mucocoele generally costs around 1500-2500 INR but it depends upon the place and the city where you get it done. I don’t think medical insurance covers mucocoele surgery. Hope it helps.

Mucocele and Cost For Laser

I suggest you see an expert they likely have a price cost per this procedure.  In my office we do, and this would be considered cosmetic unless it causes distortion, pain or extreme enlargement.  Best, Dr. Emer.
