Upper Eyelid Surgery

Eyelid Surgery, medically known as Blepharoplasty has become one of the most popular and often performed cosmetic procedures for both men and women because of its high level of patient satisfaction. Fortunately, Medicare and most insurance companies now cover “functional” eyelid surgery for upper lids if the vision is impaired enough to hinder normal vision. This usually occurs when the upper eyelid encroaches upon the lid margin and eyelashes. A feeling of fatigue results from the patient unconsciously trying to raise their eyebrows enough to lift their eyelids to keep the extra skin and fat pads from blocking their vision. This unconscious and involuntary lifting of the eyebrows causes wrinkles on the forehead and fatiguing of the forehead muscles which may cause the patient to feel unnecessarily tired.

If a patient’s vision is not impaired by their eyelids, the procedure is considered only “cosmetic” and health insurance or Medicare does not cover the procedure. If the surgery qualifies as “functional” surgery, the insurance pays for the procedure which may accomplish the additional highly desirable result of a more youthful and rested appearance. It does not, however, correct crow’s feet.

Lower Eye Lid Surgery

Lower eye lid surgery, also known as Blepharoplasty removes excess skin or/or the fat pads below the eye. This procedure is not covered by insurance plans or Medicare because it is considered cosmetic plastic surgery that improves the appearance of the person but does not improve their vision. It is a self-pay procedure that may be done at the same time as the upper lids and or a brow lift.
