There is a Medicare rebate(and health fund) for upper eyelid surgery, with Medicare parameters, so your eligibility for a Medicare item number will need to be assessed during your one-on-one consultation with Dr Edinburg, after which we will provide you with a detailed personal estimate of fees, outlining all the costs, so you are fully informed prior to making a decision. Feel free to call us and ask us about Medicare’s eligibility criteria.

The major variable in the cost of lower eyelid surgery is the hospital where you have the surgery. Dr Edinburg will not compromise on his high standards and ethical practice so he chooses to operate at well established and highly regarded private hospitals in Sydney. He demands the highest level of care for you from the moment you enter the hospital, whilst you undergo your surgery and during your postoperative care.
Once you have had your one-on-one consultation with Dr Edinburg, it will be our pleasure to provide you with a detailed personal estimate outlining all the costs, as well as comprehensive information and support around your planned surgery and treatment options so you are fully informed prior to making your decision.
This is a general guide, and of course, will be personalised for your circumstances after you have consulted with Dr Edinburg.
