Eyelid surgery (also called an eye lift or blepharoplasty), reduces bagginess from lower eyelids and removes excess skin from the upper eyelids.
Candidates for surgery
The best candidates for an eye lift are people who are in good health and who have realistic expectations. If baggy eyelids or droopy eyelids run in your family, you may decide to have the surgery done sooner.
Recovery from Eyelid Surgery
After eyelid surgery, you will have stitches in both lids that will remain for a week. It is common to have swelling and occasionally bruising, but your eyelids should look normal within a week or two.
Does Insurance Cover Eyelid Surgery?
Health insurance companies typically don't cover cosmetic procedures. If you are getting eyelid surgery for a medical reason (for instance, because your eyelids are drooping so much that it affects your vision), and if a vision test confirms that, your insurance company may cover it.
