Hello, I don't provide a costs estimate without having seen you in person for a consultation. There are a couple of factors which can impact the cost, for instance, whether you are eligible for Medicare item numbers, ie if this is medically necessary surgery. This may adjust the cost and we always provide our patients with a written price estimate. I invite you to contact my office to make an appointment should you be interested in discussing this surgery further.

Thank you for you question. Medicare doesn't cover any cosmetic procedure however if your blepharoplasty is for functional reason ( it's interfering with your vision ) then it's covered by Medicare. That will impact on the cost and this is something that needs to be assessed by the surgeon at initial consultation which a written estimate will be given afterwards. Hope that helped.

Thank you for your question. Patient has to be assessed if the main reason is sagging eyelid or dropping eyebrows and based on that the doctor decides if the patient requires Blepharoplasty or brow lift. For surgical Blepharoplasty there is an item number but we require eye specialist assessment to be eligible. The price for simple blepharoplasty it is around three to five thousands. Please contact the clinic for a proper consultation
