Sorry... an accident like that really sucks.
You're probably looking at a new bumper cover, the actual piece of plastic on the outside. The internals of the bumper are most likely OK.
Painted, installed, and with the black bumper pad (the plastic strip with the Lexus logo) replaced, you're looking at around $600-$700.

Given the condition shown in the photo, the bumper can be filled, sanded, and repainted. Probably $300 doing it this way. The light assembly is probably $30 or so.
