FUNCTIONAL EYELID LIFT
As we age, the brow and eyelids begin to descend and can obscure vision. In cases where the peripheral vision is restricted due to excess upper eyelid skin and descent of the brow, insurance will pay for the procedure to remove the excess skin and elevate the brow.
What to expect
The procedure may be done under sedation or even under local anesthesia and takes less than an hour to complete. The incisions are hidden in the natural-occurring eyelid crease and possibly behind the hairline, if a brow lift is needed. The methods used for a particular individual depends on that individual’s needs.
