The natural process of aging almost always affects the eye area. It can make you appear tired when in reality, you’re alive and awake. With an eyelid lift, you can resolve this very common issue and take years off your face. When Dr. Schalit recommends an eyelid lift to patients, the first question they often ask is “how much does an eyelid lift cost?” Let’s dive deeper into the answer.
Eyelid Lift Pricing
Eyelid lift surgery costs $3,163 on average, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. It’s important to note that the average cost is one component of the total price. It does not include anesthesia or other related expenses. Also, the details of your unique treatment plan will dictate the exact cost.
Since an eyelid lift is typically a cosmetic treatment, it’s unlikely that insurance will cover it. However, if your eyelids droop and impair your vision, insurance may pay for it. Fortunately, Dr. Schalit offers flexible financing plans that can help make the procedure more affordable if you do have to pay for it out-of-pocket.

How an Eyelid Lift Works
The goal of an eyelid lift is to improve the drooping of eyelids that comes from sagging skin, loose muscle, or excess fat tissue. It focuses on the upper eyelids and is a safe, effective way to resolve excess skin that covers the eyes. It can improve your vision and leave you with a rejuvenated appearance.
Once Dr. Schalit administers local anesthesia, he’ll use special techniques to ensure the appropriate amount of skin is removed from your eyelids. You’ll enjoy natural results that allow you to look 10 to 15 years younger.
Good Candidates for an Eyelid Lift
There are a number of reasons you may want to undergo eyelid lift surgery. It can be a great option if you’re in good health yet displeased with the appearance of your eyelids. Dr. Schalit also recommends an eyelid lift if you wish to get rid of sagging skin and bags under your eyes. In addition, if you always look tired even though you don’t feel tired, it can be the ultimate solution.
I had my first consultation with Dr. Schalit. I would need a quad blepharoplasty to fix my sagging eyelids and under eye bags. He also suggested some laser resurfacing as well to bring back a more youthful appearance to my skin. Although it was a very quick concult, his staff was informative and extremely cheerful. I liked the doctor because he didn’t suggest any unnecessary treatments or procedures like I have had happen before. The price was a little more than I had anticipated; but I still don’t think that it was too high. I’m still debating and plan to go to at least two more consultations before deciding who to go with!
