Does Eyelid Lift Surgery Cost More Than Botox?

As of 2014, the average cost of eyelid surgery is $2,874, according to statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. As of 2015, the median cost of Botox is $12 per unit, reports Nerd Wallet. Cosmetic facial Botox treatments consist of between five and 30 units per cosmetic area.

The actual cost for a blepharoplasty, also referred to as eyelid surgery, varies greatly, cautions the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. The $2,874 average cost does not include costs associated with anesthesia, operating room facilities or any other related expenses. Health insurance typically does not cover cosmetic surgeries such as a blepharoplasty; however, when doctors perform the surgery to eliminate redundant skin covering the eyelashes, insurance may cover the costs.
