As of 2015, the cost for surgery to remove bags under the eyes is approximately $2,874, not including surgical facilities, anesthesia, medical tests and prescription medications, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Costs vary for eyelid surgery, called blepharoplasty, depending on factors including a surgeon's experience.

The procedures surgeons use and the areas of the country where surgeons are located affect blepharoplasty costs, notes the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Insurance plans generally do not cover the cost of eyelid surgery, but plastic surgeons often offer financing options for patients who elect to undergo the cosmetic procedure. Blepharoplasty improves the look of lower and upper eyelids.
