I have a droopy left eyelid. Does anyone know how much this would cost to get it fixed with surgery?

In brief: Droopy lid cost

Depending on the degree of eyelid drooping, the procedure may be covered by insurance as it can be considered functional.
If not, the cost depends on the sate/city where the surgey is performed, the surgeon's cost, and the type of anestjesoa. In general, surgery performed in the office with local anesthesia is much less expensive than surgery performed in a surgery center with an anesthesiologist.

In brief: Depends on insurance

In many cases ptosis surgery is covered by insurance.
If it affects your vision to any degree it is usually considered medically necessary. If you aren't insured or it is just cosmetic, it will likely cost $1500 to $2500 dollars to fix.
