Blepharoplasty Cost in India starts from US $ 1,150 and varies depending on the extent of surgery required, your medical history, surgeon, facility and the city where you choose to get the surgery done.

Factors that affect Blepharoplasty cost in India.

  • Plastic Surgeon’s Fees

    An important expense when it comes to your Blepharoplasty is going to be your plastic surgeon’s fees. IndiCure recommends highly experienced, skilled, board-certified surgeons who are capable of delivering natural-looking results. Although the charges may vary depending on the experience of the surgeon, you can be assured that you are in safe and skilled hands when you choose plastic surgery in India with IndiCure.

  • Type of Blepharoplasty

    Depending on one’s needs, men and women of all ages can benefit from different types of blepharoplasty procedures. For example, while people with bags under the eyes would need only lower blepharoplasty, people with skin excess on upper eyelids would need only upper Blepharoplasty surgery; and there may be few people who need both upper and lower blepharoplasty for complete rejuvenation of area around the eyes. IndiCure recommends you to explore the best option for you by consulting our plastic surgeon.

  • Surgical Facility

    Having your Blepharoplasty surgery in an accredited surgical facility by skilled and qualified medical staff is a critical factor. Moreover, the geographical location of this facility in India also affects the quote. But, IndiCure provides you with a projected estimate that will be all inclusive and affordable.

  • Surgery-Related Expenses

    The surgery-related expenses include the pre- and post-surgical expenses. The pre-surgical expenses are associated with the age and medical condition of the patient and thus the number and type of investigations required. Post-surgical expenses may include prescription medications, post-surgery compression garments, and follow-up consultations.

The cost quoted above is indicative and should not be taken as the final cost of the surgery. The final cost can be ascertained after the surgeon has evaluated the patient. The cost in Indian Rupees can vary based on exchange rate.

We at IndiCure, understand that you travel with a budget in mind and do not like to be greeted by surprises after arrival in India. We thus club all these expenses and give you the package cost that is inclusive and affordable at the same time.

Your case manager shall give you an estimated cost of your surgery after discussing your medical reports with the surgeon. The final cost, however, shall be confirmed after your consultation with the Plastic Surgeon.

What is Blepharoplasty ?

Eyes are the most beautiful part of the human face which often show the earliest signs of ageing or any other kind of stress that we may be having. The removal of fat deposits and excess skin around the upper and lower lids can dramatically change your appearance and take away years from your face.

Eye bag plastic surgery or Blepharoplasty removes excess skin from upper eyelids, fat pouches under the eyes and corrects sagging or drooping eyelids to give your eyes and face a young and rejuvenated look. Blepharoplasty can be done alone or can be combined with other facial surgeries such as a Face lift and Brow lift to give the face a fresher and younger looking appearance.

Reasons for undergoing Blepharoplasty

Drooping eyelids are called “Blepharoptosis” or “Ptosis”. It can affect one or both eyes and to different degrees from unremarkable to completely covering the pupil and iris. This can lead to amblyopia or astigmatism if not treated on time. Drooping eyelids can cause obstruction in vision.

Drooping can be of 2 types:

  • Congenital – due to improper eyelid muscle development
  • Acquired – when muscle or eyelids weaken and thin
Benefits of Blepharoplasty
  • Restores a youthful definition to your eyelids
  • Removes bulging fat and excess skin
  • Improves your vision
  • Corrects a drooping brow to give a more youthful look
  • Provides pleasing contour of the lower eyelid and mid cheek

Am I a good Candidate?

If you are above 18, are concerned about the appearance of your eyes, have healthy facial tissue and muscles around eyes and don’t have any serious eye problems, have sound physical health and are emotionally stable, you are a good candidate for the eye bag surgery or blepharoplasty.

Types of Blepharoplasty

Blepharoplasty can be categorized into 3 types:

Upper Eyelid Blepharoplasty: It is done mostly in aged people to restore function for proper vision to carry out normal daily activities.

Lower Eyelid Blepharoplasty: It is done to treat what is commonly called eye bags in lower eyelids to improve the appearance of a person.

Double eyelid surgery: It is fairly common among Asians and the surgery to treat this is often referred to as Asian eyelid surgery. A lid crease is introduced in the upper eyelid for a double lid appearance. Many people prefer to get Asian eyelid surgery in India as it costs lesser to get the procedure done in India than in their own Asian country.

The other way of categorizing blepharoplasty is by the purpose:

Functional blepharoplasty: Aged, infected, degenerated or cancerous eyelids are re-established to normal state and vision is improved. Vision restoration is the main goal though improved aesthetics is an added advantage.

Cosmetic Blepharoplasty: This type mainly aims to improve the appearance of the eyelids. Getting rid of droopy eyes can make the face look younger, and you more confident.

How is Blepharoplasty Procedure done?

An incision is made below the eyelashes in the lower eye and along the crease of the upper eyelid. The skin is then dissected, fat removed and the muscle tightened. The incision is closed with fine sutures to avoid scarring.

In upper eyelid surgery, incision is in the natural folds of eyelids so that there is a more tightened appearance with removal of excess skin and fat. The lower lash line is the location of lower eyelid incision and the excess skin and fat are removed.

An alternative for lower eyelid surgery is trans-conjunctival incision but no skin is removed with this technique. The incisions are then sutured back and dressed to heal.

What is the Recovery after Blepharoplasty Surgery like?

The recovery from blepharoplasty is relatively painless. Most of the swelling and bruising should be gone by one to two weeks. You can resume routine activities in about a week to ten days after the surgery. Avoid very strenuous work and activities for at least five to six weeks following the surgery.

What Results Can I Expect from Blepharoplasty Surgery?

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, blepharoplasty is a major surgery involving the areas around your eyes. The procedure thus should be undertaken after you have gathered all the information about the potential risks involved. You must always choose a board certified plastic surgeon to do the procedure on you.

Blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery can be done under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with or without IV sedation, depending on your and your surgeon’s preference. You can choose to be awake during the surgery, though most surgeons and patients prefer to do the surgery under general anesthesia for the patient’s comfort.

You would feel some pain and discomfort after the surgery, which is controlled with medications. The pain usually lasts for a day or two. It is also normal to have swelling and bruising around the eyes for a few days which will settle with time.

Blepharoplasty is a safe procedure when done by a qualified and experienced surgeon in a well equipped facility. However, like any other surgery, eyelid surgery also has some risks associated with it. So, choose a surgeon who is experienced and qualified to do your surgery.

There is no right or good age for blepharoplasty. It depends on what you wish to achieve from the procedure. If you’re aiming to remove those extra folds to restore a more natural eyelid appearance, you can do it at any time after you are 18. People choosing blepharoplasty to rejuvenate the area around eyes or remove eyebags are usually above 40.

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the vast majority — roughly 91% — of eyelid surgery patients are over 40, and more than half of that 91% is over 55.
