Plastic Surgery Hair Restoration

Plastic surgery procedures that are undergone for purely cosmetic purposes are not generally covered by health insurance. Insurance companies will usually pay for reconstructive surgery to repair abnormalities caused by congenital defects, trauma, or disease. However, if a procedure is performed in order to restore function and a normal appearance, insurance may cover the cost.

Eyelid surgery, technically called “blepharoplasty,” is a procedure that removes excess skin and fatty deposits from the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both. Dr. Wise uses a technique that results in the upper eyelid incisions hidden within the natural crease of the lid, and the lower lid incisions are made within the lower eyelid so there are no visible scars.

Insurance companies do not generally cover the lower eyelid blepharoplasty, but upper blepharoplasty can be covered in cases where an examination by an ophthalmologist determines that droopiness of the upper eyelid impairs vision or the functionality of the eye. Please note, the eyelid procedures performed by Dr. Wise are considered to be cosmetic in nature, and thus are not covered by insurance in any circumstance.

The cost of blepharoplasty is among the lowest of all facial cosmetic surgeries. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the average surgeon fee for eyelid surgery varies, and the entire cost of surgery depends on the technique used and other factors, such as facility fees and region of the country where the surgery is performed. When it comes to plastic surgery, you get what you pay for, and cutting corners for cheaper surgery can have serious repercussions.

Dr. Wise specializes in facial plastic surgery and has performed thousands of eyelid lifts. If you’re interested in blepharoplasty or any other plastic surgery procedure, please contact us by filling out our online contact form or call 973-658-4019 today to schedule an appointment.
