The cost of eyelid surgery really depends on several factors. It costs more to do both upper and lower eyelids than it does just the uppers or just the lowers.
The real cost of any type of cosmetic surgery including eyelid surgery is dependent upon the amount of time it takes to perform the procedure in a formal operating room. Time monitored under general anesthesia by a physician anesthesiologist, and then the surgeon’s fees for performing the surgical procedure known as a blepharoplasty. Surgeon experience and geography does tend to play into the cost of any type of cosmetic surgery including eyelids.
The recovery for eyelid surgery usually involves placing the patient under general anesthesia for approximately an hour and then the recovery time is usually another hour just kind of waking up from the anesthesia and then the patients go home with their caretaker.
Patients are fully healed after eyelid surgery usually at about three to four months after the procedure. Anticipate visible swelling and bruising for the first two weeks. The incision itself on the upper lid tends to stay, what we call, red or lumpy bumpy for a series of several weeks, six to eight weeks and then the incision on the upper lid tends to turn into a very fine white line. But the process takes two to three months. Patients are certainly able to hide it because it’s in the natural crease and they put makeup on to cover that incision.
