According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the average cost of an eyelid lift is $3,163. This average cost does not factor in additional surgical fees, including the cost of general anesthesia, surgical center costs, and prescription medications.
Factors That Influence the Cost of Your Eyelid Lift
1. Your location.
The area where you live can play a big role in how much you’ll end up spending on an eyelid lift. For example, if you live in a city with a high cost-of-living index (like San Francisco or Boston), you’ll probably pay more for your eyelid lift than if you live in an area with a more modest cost-of-living index (like Athens, GA).
2. Your plastic surgeon.
The expertise and educational background of your plastic surgeon can influence the total cost of your eyelid lift. You definitely want to find a board certified plastic surgeon with the right background, as an eyelid lift requires extensive knowledge about the eyelid skin and facial muscles surrounding the eyes.
If you end up opting for an eyelid lift that covers both your upper and lower eyelids, you’ll likely pay more for your total surgery than someone who opts for only the upper or lower eyelid lift.
The best way to see how much you’ll actually end up paying for your eyelid lift is to schedule a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon. By the end of your consultation, you should have an approximate estimate for your eyelid lift costs.
Dr. Pittman and his team of nurses truly are lifesavers. After my upper and lower eyelid surgery, I convinced my father that he would be a great candidate for the surgery too. The day of his surgery he asked Dr. Pittman to remove what he had been told was a wart on his forehead. The wart turned out to be malignant melanoma. Dr. Pittman was so concerned that he called a cancer specialist at Emory and had my father set up with an appointment immediately. We are so thankful for Dr. Pittman and his crew of sweet nurses who have gone above and beyond to take care of our family. They not only are incredible surgeons, but they are incredible people.
