Asian Eyelid Surgery Cost

by Dr. Daniel Lin


Asian Eyelid Surgery Cost | Pasadena | Rowland Heights | Baldwin ParkAsian Eyelid surgery is one of the most sought-after procedures in the United States for people of Asian ethnicity. It is also known as blepharoplasty or eyelid lift cosmetic surgery.

Asian eyelid surgery is typically performed as an elective procedure to create an additional crease in the eyelid and enhance the youthful appeal of the eyes. Patients will likely not receive insurance coverage for this elective surgery. Therefore, the cost becomes an important starting point for many patients considering Asian eyelid surgery.


Revelations During the Consultation

At the time of the initial consultation, the surgeon will explain various aspects of Asian blepharoplasty to the patient, including its estimated costs.

Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Daniel Lin provides Asian eyelid surgery to patients in West Covina, Inland Empire, San Gabriel Valley, Chino, Rowland Heights, Baldwin Park, Whittier, Brea, Arcadia, Pasadena, Diamond Bar and surrounding areas in California.


Factors Affecting the Cost

The costs of Asian lower and upper blepharoplasty may differ between practices. The geographical location of the practice also affects the procedure costs. The costs of plastic surgery procedures such as double eyelid surgery will usually be higher in prime urban centers and busy metropolitan cities compared to smaller towns located in the interiors.

Some aspects that can affect the overall eyelid lift surgery costs are the quality standards at a particular practice, personalized care and attention, the use of the latest technologies, and the professional credentials of the surgeon.

The choice of a surgical facility such as a private surgical suite, a hospital, or an ambulatory surgical center will also affect the overall costs of the procedure.

The surgeon’s fee can vary on the basis of their recognition, skills, and experience in the area of Asian cosmetic surgery. If the patient requires the services of an anesthesiologist or a nurse anesthetist, the procedure costs will increase further.


Some Asian patients may need upper or lower blepharoplasty while others may require both. At times, Asian eyelid surgery may be undertaken in combination with other non-surgical or surgical procedures such as brow lift, fat transfer, Botox, or dermal fillers.

In each case, the costs will differ. The patient may be able to get a special package rate or discount if they choose to undergo another procedure(s) along with eyelid surgery.



Asian eyelid surgery is typically considered elective. But a notable exception is when the patient experiences ptosis, which causes the eyelids to sag heavily obstructing vision. Such patients may be able to receive full or partial insurance coverage.

In case of ptosis, patients should discuss the coverage possibilities beforehand with their insurer. The surgeon’s staff may be able to offer the patient information and assistance with the insurance paperwork and formalities.



The patient may be able to pay for Asian eyelid lift cosmetic surgery with major credit cards. They can also choose from multiple financing options such as private loans, bank loans, or financing from third-party medical care financing firms providing loans specifically for medical procedures.

These companies usually offer competitive rates of interest, faster loan approvals, and easy monthly installments of up to 60 months.
