Types of Eyelid Surgery and Costs in Massachusetts

The types of eyelid surgery and costs in Massachusetts are somewhat different from other types of surgical procedures done on the eyes, because in most cases, eyelid surgery which is often referred to as blepharoplasty, is not considered by health insurance providers to be a medical procedure in most cases. Usually the only time that a health insurance company will pay for this type of surgical procedure is when the fatty tissue in the eyelid is so excessive that it blocks a major portion of the patient's vision. In this case, it is considered to be a necessary medical procedure. In such cases, the surgery is referred to as functional blepharoplasty.

When this surgical procedure is done simply for cosmetic reasons, it is considered to be an elective surgery. If any surgical procedure is done on the lower eyelid, it is never covered by health insurance. Many people choose to have this type of procedure done on their eyelids even though it is not covered by health insurance, because they have signs of aging including, puffy bags under the eyes, wrinkles or lines, and look a lot older than they actually are. By having the surgery done, you will look and feel younger, but you will want to check into the cost of the surgery before committing to anything, since it may be more than you want to or can afford to spend.

It is often difficult to assess how much eyelid surgery will cost the patient. It largely depends on the type of procedure, the experience of the surgeon, and the location. In Massachusetts, if you are having the surgical procedure done in Boston or one of the major metropolitan areas, it will generally cost more than having the surgery done in a smaller town. The surgeon's costs, along with the hospital or medical facility where the procedure will be done, have to be taken into consideration. The cost of the anesthesia is always a factor. You also have to consider any medical tests that must be done prior to the surgery, and prescription medications that are needed.

Although every eyelid surgical procedure is different depending on the patient's needs, it is fair to assume when you elect to have eyelid surgery done in Massachusetts, it will cost anywhere from $1,500 up to $5,000. You should take this into consideration if the surgical procedure is being done for cosmetic reasons rather than to correct impaired vision. Although this is typical for Massachusetts, the cost in most other states would be similar for cosmetic surgical procedures. However, there may be some changes in the cost if you choose to have the procedure done under local anesthesia in the doctor's office, rather than in a hospital or medical facility as an inpatient.
