Blepharoplasty is upper and/or lower eyelid cosmetic surgery usually performed for redundancy of the skin and fat of eyelids. Insurance companies may pay for upper lid surgery if the lids get in the way of the patient’s vision. The rate they pay for the surgeon is usually pretty poor.
This young woman came for cosmetic blepharoplasty of the upper and lower lids. This was performed through traditional trans-cutaneous incisions allowing the removal of skin and fat. At 6 weeks she was pleased.
