Eyelid Surgery Cost

The eyes are often the first area of the face to exhibit signs of aging and not respond significantly to topical skincare solutions. Fortunately, Dr. Gregory T. Mesna performs an eyelid surgery called blepharoplasty at Mesna Plastic Surgery, targeting issues such as drooping eyelids, puffy bags, and crepey skin in the eye area to deliver youthful, beautiful results.

Eyelid surgery cost at our Minneapolis, MN, practice depends on individual factors, such as the complexity of your case, any additional treatment you receive, and whether you request general anesthesia.

Factors Affecting the Cost of Blepharoplasty

While the cost of blepharoplasty may vary, patients should note that the procedure does not cost as much as many other types of plastic surgery.

Applicable insurance coverage may offset these costs.

Your Surgeon

The biggest cost factor pertaining to eyelid surgery is the quality of the surgeon you choose. Depending on the experience and skill of your plastic surgeon, costs may vary considerably. It is important to select a surgeon who possesses the right blend of technical expertise and artistry to create natural-looking results, especially when it comes to organs as sensitive and precious as your eyes.

Dr. Mesna is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, and he expertly performs procedures that can dramatically transform the lives of his patients. Investing in Dr. Mesna ensures the highest quality results possible.

The Surgical Venue

The surgical venue also affects the total cost of surgery. Dr. Mesna will perform your blepharoplasty in a hospital, which may increase the expense but is the safest option, considering the unparalleled infrastructure available as compared to a private suite or ambulatory surgical center. 

The Type of Procedure 

The cost of eyelid surgery also depends significantly on the type of procedure performed and the extent of the work. Insurance carriers will only cover the cost of upper eyelid surgery if conditions such as severely drooping eyelids - called ptosis - obstruct the patient's visual field. This condition must be documented during an examination with formal visual field testing and photographs. Some carriers require the submission of photographs before providing coverage.

Dr. Mesna is a highly qualified surgeon who puts the comfort, safety, and satisfaction of his patients above all. His keen aesthetic sensibilities can ensure that your results look natural and will last for many years.

Insurance companies rarely cover the costs of eyelid surgeries for purely cosmetic purposes. However, most patients believe that these procedures are a worthwhile investment, as blepharoplasty offers dramatic results unmatched by even the most potent eye creams available on the market.


Another factor that will impact the cost of your eyelid surgery is your choice of anesthesia. While some patients may undergo upper and lower eyelid surgery under local anesthesia, you may also request general anesthesia to make the entire process more relaxing and comfortable.

Complementary Procedures

If you choose to combine your blepharoplasty with procedures such as a brow lift or dermal fillers to treat other symptoms of aging, the total cost of your treatment will increase. The knowledgeable staff at Mesna Plastic Surgery can help identify your goals and develop a treatment plan to meet your unique needs.

Invest in a Skilled Plastic Surgeon

Your eyes are precious, and blepharoplasty requires experience, skill, patience, and attention to detail. Dr. Mesna is a highly qualified surgeon who puts the comfort, safety, and satisfaction of his patients above all else. His keen aesthetic sensibilities can ensure that your results look natural and will last for many years.
