Often times, the thinner skin of and around our eyelids is the first place we begin to show the signs of aging. Gravity, exposure to the sun and even heredity can make us appear older then we really are. Delicate skin sags and stretches and fatty cells around the eye bulge. The great news is that there is an effective, permanent, safe solution that can shave years off your appearance. Eyelid surgery, also known as a Blepharoplasty, is one of the most common cosmetic procedures performed today. The procedure is a minimally invasive and extremely effective. A tightening of the skin or removal of excess, saggy skin and reduction of unsightly bags can give you a more youthful look, an improved quality of vision and a more rested appearance.
If significant, droopiness of the upper eyelids can be considered a medical necessity, and therefore often covered by medical insurance. Additional testing is necessary to determine visual impairment and further documentation may be necessary for insurance coverage for the procedure.
