Eyelid Surgery Prices and Payment Options
By Peter Brownrigg on June 15, 2013
The eyes truly are the windows to the soul. They can say so much about us and our personalities, though occasionally they say things that we wish they wouldn't. The eyelids in particular, both upper and lower, can be problematic in terms of overall appearance. Thankfully there are plenty of options for aesthetic enhancement at our Ottawa plastic surgery practice.
We wanted to take a moment right now to look at some of the issues related to the cost and payment of cosmetic eyelid surgery. By understanding these monetary factors, patients are often able to make more informed decisions about their treatment options.
About Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery
Cosmetic eyelid surgery is a facial rejuvenation procedure that targets the upper eyelids or the lower eyelids. Dropping, sagging, or bagginess of the lower eyelids can be effectively treated and removed through cosmetic eyelid surgery. The exact surgical procedure will be described by your cosmetic plastic surgeon during the consultation process.
Average Cost of Eyelid Surgery
The average cost of cosmetic eyelid surgery can vary greatly from person to person based on a number of factors. Because of this, we don't feel that providing an average cost or a general price range paints an accurate portrait of what eyelid surgery entails. We can provide you with this information during your consultation.
Factors Affecting Cost of Eyelid Surgery
Some of the most common factors that determine the total cost of eyelid surgery are:
- Geographic location of the practice
- The surgeons at the practice
- The complexity of the patient's case
- Special promotions unique to each practice
If the cost of cosmetic eyelid surgery is too much to cover for a household, there are financing options available that can be very helpful.
Financing Options and How They Work
Financing plans can be used for all facial plastic surgery and aesthetic surgery procedures. It's helpful to think of these options like a credit card. Essentially, financing for plastic surgery works on a similar principle as a credit card. A third party will pay for the total cost of the cosmetic eyelid surgery, and the patient will be responsible for paying back that third party on a monthly basis. Many of our patients find this to be a good set up in that it allows them to budget accordingly on a month-to-month basis.
Weighing All of You Options
Undergoing any sort of cosmetic procedure is a big decision and one that we believe shouldn't be taken lightly. For that reason, we feel that it's important that our patients weigh all of their options carefully so that they can make decisions with which they feel comfortable. This is crucial, and we find that patients who understand and fully consider all of their options prior to surgery usually experience better results.
