Eyelid surgery, also known as an eye lift or blepharoplasty, cost an average of $2,874 in 2014, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. This amount does not include the cost of the operating room or anesthesia.
While most insurance companies consider eye lifts to be cosmetic surgery and therefore don't cover the costs, some plastic surgeons make financing plans available to patients. In some cases, where the surgery is done to eliminate extra skin covering the eyelashes, some insurance companies may cover the procedure, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons points out. Actual costs may vary depending on the surgeon's fees, the specific type of procedure performed and any medications required.
