Upper Eyelid Lift (Blepharoplasty)
You may be bothered by loose or sagging skin that creates folds and hides the natural contour of your upper eyelid. This excess skin may hang down so much that it can even obstruct your vision. If the upper eyelid skin is resting on the upper eyelid lashes, then it is likely that your vision is obstructed. Although most upper eyelid surgery is performed for cosmetic reasons, insurance will cover the cost of the procedure if your vision is obstructed. A simple vision test using an array of lights can determine whether your vision is obstructed enough for the Upper Eyelid Blepharoplasty to be medically necessary.
Tina, 58 years old, was aware that she could not see her upper eyelids because of the excess fold of eyelid skin. After her procedure, she was able to place eye shadow on the now visible upper eyelid. Please note that a Browlift can lift the brow as well as the upper eyelid skin (see Facelift and Browlift) if your brows are too low.
