What is Blepharoplasty?

When you look in the mirror, are you happy with what you see? If you’re not, turn to Adam J Cohen, MD, an eyelid and facial plastic surgeon who can help improve your confidence. One facet of his work is blepharoplasty, which is eyelid surgery. Your eyes help tell the story of who you are, and you want them to exude confidence and a radiant appearance. However, you may notice that with age, your eyelids begin to droop. Not only does this create an appearance you do not want, but in more extreme cases, it may also obstruct your vision. Thanks to our eyelid surgeon in Lakeview, your youthful appearance can be restored and either your upper or lower eyelid can be tightened.

Upper Blepharoplasty

If your upper eyelids have begun to sag to the point of disrupting your vision, or if you simply aren’t happy with your eyelids, getting them tightened can improve both functionality and appearance. The small incision used to remove excess skin or fat in your upper eyelid will be seamlessly hidden because of the natural crease of your eye. Fine sutures close the incision, and you will be on your way to increased confidence!

Lower Blepharoplasty

The skin below the eyelids can be a problem area for some people as well. Even worse, drooping lower eyelids can make it seem like you are constantly tired even when you aren’t. Our eyelid surgeon in Lakeview can help improve the facial contours below your eye through a lower blepharoplasty procedure. The incisions will be hidden on the inside of your lower lid. Rest assured there will be no visible signs of surgery other than a new-and-improved appearance.

Does Insurance Cover the Procedure?

If your vision is impaired due to sagging or drooping eyelids, our eyelid surgeon in Lakeview can help prove to your insurance company that you need help. This proof is often a necessary step in order for insurance to help cover the procedure. Keep in mind that you may benefit from getting both an upper and a lower blepharoplasty to improve your facial appearance.

A blepharoplasty procedure isn’t right for everyone, but it has helped many people find the confidence that they thought was forever lost. Take advantage of our free consultation!
