Conveniently located to serve the areas of Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C.

Posted on March 15, 2018 under Blepharoplasty

Blepharoplasty, commonly known as eyelid surgery, is a highly effective cosmetic surgery procedure designed to restore a more youthful, rested, and rejuvenated appearance of the eyes. Upper and lower eyelid surgery may be performed separately or as a combined procedure, depending on the aesthetic needs of a patient. In any case, the procedure should be performed only by an experienced plastic surgeon because it involves the eyes.

Dr. Dean Jabs and Dr. Franklin Richards are both board-certified plastic surgeons with a combined experience of nearly four decades between them. They provide blepharoplasty in Northern Virginia and other areas through their offices in McLean VA and Bethesda MD. During the initial consultation, Dr. Jabs and Dr. Richards will discuss various aspects of the procedure, including its estimated costs. Patients in Northern Virginia, Fairfax, Alexandria, VA, Chevy Chase, Rockville, MD, and nearby locations have an opportunity to receive eyelid surgery at their practice.

Factors Germane to the Cost

The cost of eyelid surgery can vary between two practices, and in some cases, may even vary between two patients at the same practice. Several factors will go into determining the actual cost of the procedure.

Geographical Location of the Practice

The cost of living index will normally differ between the two states, which can influence the average cost of most types of products and services, including cosmetic surgery services. For instance, the cost of blepharoplasty in Northern Virginia, Fairfax, Alexandria, VA, Chevy Chase, Rockville, MD, and surrounding areas may not be the same as the cost in, say, Ohio.

Fee the Surgeon

The plastic surgeon who will perform blepharoplasty may charge a fee according to their qualifications, experience, and reputation in the field of eyelid surgery. However, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) recommends that patients should select the best surgeon for their needs, and consider factors such as the surgeon’s fee only as secondary in their decision-making.

Anesthesia and Surgical Facility Costs

Upper or lower eyelid surgery will usually be performed under local anesthesia with IV sedation, but in some cases, general anesthesia may be required. The fee of the anesthesiologist will vary depending on their skills and experience. If the procedure is performed at a state-of-the-art surgical facility with personalized service and highly experienced staff, the cost may differ slightly in comparison to that of an average operating room.
