Depends: The cost of surgery in part depends on the community standards in your area as well as the individual price structure of each surgeon. It also depends on the type of anesthesia required and whether the procedure is considered cosmetic or functional. The average surgeon fee in the us in 2011 was about $3, 000 according to the asps.
Dr. Gregory Vipond

Droopy Eyelid Cost: Depending on the degree of eyelid drooping, the procedure may be covered by insurance. If the drooping is not severe enough, the cost depends on the state/city of the surgeon, the surgeon him/herself, and the type of anesthesia. If the surgery is done under local anesthesia in the office it will be less expensive than if done in a surgery center with an anesthesiologist.

Variable: It depends on what needs to be done, how long it takes and the surgeon's skills. At that you need to add anesthesia and facility fees. The cost is usually determined case by case.

Droopy eyelid: There are several causes of a droopy eyelid. Your best bet would be to have your eyes evaluated by a board certified facial plastic surgeon. Prices vary by procedure. location and surgeon.
