Eyelid surgery cost is not a set amount
Eyelid surgery cost is one of the first things Charlotte, NC residents who are considering the procedure want to know. Before any type of plastic surgery, most patients want to make sure they can afford the procedure or will be able to save up enough money for the procedure by the time they want to have it done.
Unfortunately, there is no set cost for eyelid surgery, but patients should anticipate spending no less than a couple thousand dollars on the procedure. The surgeon should be able to provide an estimate for the procedure following a consultation that includes discussing the patient’s goals and an examination by the doctor.
There are different types of eyelid surgery, which can affect the cost
One thing that may impact eyelid surgery cost is the type of surgery a patient undergoes. Some patients may be experiencing droopy upper eyelids that hand down in front of their eyes. These patients will need to undergo upper eyelid blepharoplasty, which may be done in conjunction with other procedures.
Other patients may be having surgery on their lower eyelids in hopes of removing under eye bags. These patients will need to undergo some kind of lower lid blepharoplasty which all will have different costs associated with it.
There are many other factors that go into determining the cost of the procedure.
The surgeon’s fee, or cost of the actual procedure, is not the only thing that goes into eyelid surgery cost. Most of these procedures are completed in the surgical area of the doctor’s office, which means the cost of the surgical room, recovery room, anesthesia, and nurses are also factored in.
Patients will also need to pay for any medications given in the doctor’s office and any that are prescribed after surgery. Doctor’s appointments before and after surgery will also be needed and have fees associated with them. Patients may also want to budget a bit more in case they have any complications following surgery. Your doctor may also recommend additional operations which would have additional costs as well.
