About Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)

eyelid-surgeryA common proverb says “the eyes are the mirror of the soul.” Your eyes are one of the most communicative features; they truly do say a lot about you. Heavy eyelids and bags under the eyes make you look tired and aged. As people age they tend to develop excess skin above their upper eyelids and bags beneath their lower eyelids. This is partly due to gravity, loss of skin elasticity and fat deposits that may settle over time in these areas. Fortunately, Dr. Burke Robinson can perform eyelid surgery, also called blepharoplasty, to rejuvenate the eye area.

Eyelid Surgery Procedure

The eyelid surgery procedure can be performed on the upper eyelid, lower eyelid, or both, depending on the patient’s needs.

“Eyelid surgery is a simple procedure providing the single most dramatic change one can get with cosmetic surgery,” said Dr. Robinson, who has performed over a thousand eyelid surgical procedures during his career.

“Additionally, the incisions are hidden in the natural crease of the upper lid and typically just inside the rim of the lower eyelid. The patient can return to work in just a few days and no one really knows why this person looks so rested and radiant,” Robinson continued.

Eyelid Surgery & Insurance Coverage

Although a blepharoplasty is commonly perceived as a cosmetic procedure, it may be covered under insurance if the drooping skin above the eyes is perceived by an ophthalmologist as interfering with your vision. A visual fields test and general eye exam is a pre-certification requirement by most insurance companies.
