Blepharoplasty

Blepharoplasty (commonly known as eyelid surgery) is a procedure performed on the eyelid. During this procedure, Dr. DeAngelis can remove excess skin and tissue from the upper and lower eyelids to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles, droopy eyelids, and swollen bags near the eye. Blepharoplasty is most often considered a cosmetic procedure. However, drooping upper eyelids (ptosis) may block the eye’s field of vision, in which case it may be deemed medically necessary. This distinction is important, because a medically necessary procedure may be covered by health insurance.
