Prices will vary depending on where you are in the country. In my area of Metro DC./Northern Virginia, the cost for upper and lower eyelid surgery is about $6000, including anesthesia and surgical care. It is a wonderful procedure, getting rid of the extra skin on the upper lids and removing the fat that causes fullness or bags in the lower lids. it is called and upper and lower blepharoplasty. Recovery is about 1-2 weeks and very little pain involved, just downtime.

It makes a big difference and looks very natural. Good luck to you!

Much cheaper here. I charge $1,200 for both upper or both lower lids, in the office under local anesthesia. The recovery is easier and I think the results better if you don't do uppers and lowers at the same time

Thank you for sharing your question. Prices will vary across the country based on anesthesia use, exact procedures to be performed, and the type of facility used to perform the operation. The best advice is to set a series of consultations with local plastic surgeons to get the best estimate for your area. Best wishes.
