Who Needs Eyelid Lift Surgery?
You may opt for cosmetic eyelid surgery to improve the appearance of your upper and/or lower eyelids. Often, the surgical procedure improves the looks of the entire eye area. People with bags under their eyes look years younger once the lower eyelid is smooth again.
Sometimes people develop droopy eyelids as they age. Others inherit hooded eyes that are apparent from an early age. Even those who use makeup to draw attention away from the feature eventually end up needing hooded eyes surgery. For many people, hooded or droopy eyelids are a more serious problem. Once the sagging skin reaches their eye, it can interfere with their vision.
Health insurance almost never covers cosmetic eye surgery. However, if you require eyelid lift surgery for the upper eye to improve your vision, you might be able to recover part of your costs. If your droopy eyelids are interfering with your vision, schedule a consultation to find out your options to pay for drooping eyelid surgery.
Droopy eyelids often cause your eyes to look smaller. If you have excess tissue or bags on your eyelids, eye enlargement surgery can help open up your eyes. Regardless of whether you are considering cosmetic eyelid surgery to improve your appearance, or an eye lift for medical reasons, every procedure begins with a consultation.
Before deciding on eyelid lift surgery, your doctor will ask you about previous surgeries and past or current medical conditions. He’ll talk with you about your expectations and determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure.
