Blepharoplasty

Blepharoplasty is most commonly known as eyelid surgery. The droopiness of the eyelids leads to reflexive forehead wrinkling, headache from forehead muscle contraction, and eye fatigue. When the excess skin weighing down the lid interferes with your superior visual field it is considered medically necessary and insurance will be filed. However, if your vision is not significantly impaired, the surgery is considered cosmetic and insurance coverage is not applicable. Eyelid surgery can be the best solution to numerous eye disorders, including dematochalasis - the excess of upper eyelid skin over the eyelashes.

Blepharoplasty

Ectropion

EctropionThe lower eyelid turns outward causing redness, irritation, watery eyes, infection, crusting, vision impairment, and damage to the cornea (surface of the eye). This is usually a result of facial aging, although injury, tumor, or Bell’s Palsy can also cause ectropion. This is a procedure that is typically considered medically necessary by most insurance.

 

 

Entropion

EntropionThe eyelid rolls in causing the eyelashes to rub against the eye. Entropion is caused by laxity of the eyelid and/or spasm of the eyelid muscle and may produce tearing, infection, vision impairment, and damage to the cornea (surface of the eye). This is a procedure that is typically considered medically necessary by most insurance.

 

 

Ptosis

Droopiness or sagging of the upper eyelid caused by injury to the muscle, congenital defect, muscle disorders, nerve disorders, or aging can obstruct vision when severe and create a tired or aged appearance. The weakened muscle must be repired, this is also considered medically necessary by most insurances.
