Every surgical procedure is highly individualized and requires an initial consultation by a qualified Oculoplastic surgeon to determine best treatment option (surgical versus nonsurgical). A thorough examination is necessary to provide an accurate price estimate because every patient is significantly different. Very often, blepharoplasty is performed under local anesthesia, and requires minimal downtime.
