When Eyelid Surgery Is More Than Aesthetic featured image

Blepharoplasty is largely considered a cosmetic procedure. Removal of fat and excess skin from the eyelids is often performed to make the eye area appear more youthful and less tired.

What many may not realize is that if your upper eyelid skin sags so far down that your vision is consequently impaired-a condition called ptosis-blepharoplasty is then considered a medically necessary reconstructive surgery.

This means it may be eligible for insurance coverage. Precertification is a must, however, so be sure to discuss this with your surgeon during your initial consultation.
