Eyelid Surgery Cost

How much does eyelid surgery cost in Sydney?

Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, in Sydney with Dr Edinburg is the suggested procedure if you’ve noticed that your upper eyelids are sagging slightly or that you’re simply looking “old and tired”. Crepey, excess skin sometimes appears as we age and an Upper Lid Blepharoplasty removes this excess skin and tissue from the upper eyelids while a Lower Lid Blepharoplasty removes the excess skin and tissue (or ‘bags’) from under the eyes. Not all eyelid surgery is the same, as no two patients are the same, so please use these costs as a guide.

Upper eyelid surgery (or upper lid blepharoplasty) is usually performed in rooms under a local anaesthetic and lower eyelid surgery (or lower lid blepharoplasty) is done under a general anaesthetic in hospital. The overall cost of each procedure is affected by the involvement of other medical professionals and the respective surgical facility that is required. At Eden Institute, you can rest assured that Dr Edinburg will never compromise on the many factors involved in determining your costs.
