How much does eyelid surgery cost? Does insurance cover the cost?

The cost of eyelid surgery depends on the type and complexity of the procedure performed.

Insurance carriers will only cover upper eyelid surgery if the patient has obstruction of vision that is documented during an examination, thereby meeting the requirements for a medically-indicated blepharoplasty.
