Loose skin around the eyes, combined with the buildup of fatty tissue, can give you a tired or sleepy facial appearance. Thankfully, Eos rejuvenation can help you address these concerns through eyelid surgery. Before getting blepharoplasty, you will naturally have a few questions. For example, you may wonder whether eyelid surgery is covered by insurance. The answer depends on several factors, including your specific insurance carrier as well as your reasons for getting eyelid surgery in the first place.
Reasons to Seek Blepharoplasty
There are two basic kinds of blepharoplasty: upper eyelid surgery and lower eyelid surgery. Depending on your specific needs, you may opt for one procedure over the other, or choose to have them performed in combination.
Eyelid surgery can resolve many common issues, including:
- Drooping upper eyelids.
- The appearance of a heavier brow.
- Large under-eye bags.
- Wrinkles and fine lines under the eye, including crow’s feet.
- Impairment of peripheral vision.
The first step in your blepharoplasty journey will begin with a consultation, allowing you to discuss your aesthetic goals with Dr. Nima. He will then recommend the surgical option best suited to addressing those needs.
Will Blepharoplasty Be Covered Under Insurance?
While all insurance plans are different, most will not cover elective procedures chosen for purely aesthetic reasons.
Some insurance companies might cover an upper blepharoplasty to restore your peripheral vision. To get the procedure covered, you will need confirmation from your eye doctor detailing that you need blepharoplasty to address a significant vision impairment.
