Eyelid Procedures and Blepharoplasty
Eyelid procedures and blepharoplasty can greatly improve the appearance of the eye area, and in fact, the whole upper face. Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure in which the appearance of the upper, lower, or both sets of eyelids are improved.
Is blepharoplasty covered by medical insurance?
It depends on the patient and the specific situation. Blepharoplasty is often done as a cosmetic procedure and is thus often not covered by medical insurance. However, there are times when blepharoplasty may be a medical necessity, including situations like entropion or ectropion. If the procedure is medically necessary, insurance may pay for part or all of it. Check with your insurance provider to ensure the type of coverage you have for this type of procedure.
