When planning to undergo eyelid surgery, one of the most important things that you should consider is the total costs. In general, the final price of blepharoplasty surgery can be broken into a number of components including:
Total cost for eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) performed under local anaesthetic in Dr Cope’s rooms typically costs between $5000 and $6500, while a blepharoplasty performed in hospital costs up to $10,000 depending on whether there is an item number or not and whether you are covered by private health insurance. After your consultation with Dr Cope, we will provide you with a detailed breakdown of the total costs of your blepharoplasty procedure
There is a Medicare rebate in specific circumstances in upper eyelid blepharoplasty (where excess upper eyelid skin affects your vision). In order to qualify for this, you may need to have a visual test performed by an optometrist which confirms this. If you qualify for the item number and are insured your health fund may cover the hospital bed fee and theatre fee costs (depending on your level of insurance).
