Eyelid surgery – medically known as blepharoplasty – can be a great option for many women and men seeking to address aging symptoms in the upper and/or lower eyelids in an effort to achieve a rejuvenated and more “well-rested” appearance. The total cost of this aesthetic procedure will depend on a variety of different factors, including the complexity of treatment and whether it is performed on the upper lid, lower lid, or both eyelids. In addition to these elements, the overall expense will be comprised of the surgeon’s fee, the facility fee, and a fee for the anesthesia utilized. In some instances, blepharoplasty can be performed in-office under local anesthesia, which may help reduce the final cost.
At The Aesthetic Institute of Chicago, all eyelid surgeries are customized to meet the specific needs and goals of each patient, so an in-person consultation with one of our board certified plastic surgeons – Dr. Brian Braithwaite and Dr. Lorri Cobbins – is necessary to determine the exact price of the procedure. Following an extensive evaluation of your cosmetic concerns, a comprehensive breakdown of the individual fees associated with surgery can be provided and discussed in detail. For your benefit, our practice offers various financing options through CareCredit® should you desire to pay for treatment over the course of several months as opposed to in one lump sum.
In the end, when contemplating cosmetic surgery, keep in mind that the expense of any aesthetic procedure is frequently an indication of the experience and skill of the plastic surgeon, as well as the level of personalized care you can expect throughout the entirety of your treatment.
