Medical Reasons for Eyelid Surgery
While cosmetic eyelid surgery is performed for aesthetic purposes, functional blepharoplasty is performed for medical reasons. In some cases, the loose skin on the upper eyelids can droop low enough to obstruct the field of vision. Functional eyelid surgery can be performed to correct this problem. In these cases, your health insurance policy may cover part or all the cost of the procedure.
Additional medically necessary reasons for eyelid surgery may include:
- Difficulty wearing glasses or contact lenses due to droopy upper or lower eyelids
- Forehead discomfort caused by muscle strain from constantly lifting the brow and sagging skin in the eyelids
- Skin irritation from excess folds on the eyelids rubbing together
