Eyelid Surgery

Love Your Eyes Again...We Can Help

Not looking as young as you feel when you look in the mirror?

We understand.

Signs of aging often show first around the eyes with excess, drooping skin that makes you appear sad or angry or with eyes that look tired due to puffiness or bags. Fortunately, the expert Blepharoplasty surgeons at Eye Medical Clinic can help.

While receiving eyelid surgery is more well-known for its cosmetic benefits, there are some instances where the procedure is a medical necessity to improve vision.

What is Blepharoplasty?

Eyelid surgery, technically called blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure to improve the appearance of the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both. The goal of blepharoplasty is to diminish the amount of excess or sagging skin, muscle and fat.

If you are bothered by upper eyelids with excess, drooping skin that makes you appear sad or angry, or by eyes that look tired due to puffiness or bags, blepharoplasty at Eye Medical Clinic may be right for you.

The procedure is performed in office and you will be able to return home the same day. Patients report very little discomfort. You will be asked to return five to seven days post op to have your sutures removed. Most people return to most daily activities including work within a week of blepharoplasty surgery.

Is Blepharoplasty Covered by Insurance?

Blepharoplasty is a procedure designed to improve the appearance or function of upper or lower eyelids.

Upper blepharoplasty can also improve visual function. In these cases, insurance often covers the cost of upper eyelid surgery.

Lower blepharoplasty addresses excess skin and puffiness under the eye and is a cosmetic procedure. For this reason, lower blephs are not covered by insurance.

Our Eye Medical Clinic insurance specialists are happy to help you determine if your blepharoplasty procedure, or a portion of it, may be covered by insurance.
