About Surgical Treatments
Our Physicians specialize in Oculoplastic Surgery—the evaluation and treatment of both “cosmetic” and “functional” abnormalities that affect the eyelids, eyebrows, and structures surrounding the eyes, including the tear drainage system and eye socket.
What is a “functional” surgery?
Functional oculoplastic surgery involves repairing areas that are causing visual impairment. For example:
- Eyelids that droop so much that your vision is restricted.
- Heavy brows that force your eyelids down into your field of vision.
Surgery to correct a functional condition may be covered by health insurance if certain measurements meet your insurance company’s specific criteria. A complimentary evaluation is the first step toward finding out if you have a functional condition and if your insurance will help pay for your surgery.
What is a “cosmetic” surgery?
A cosmetic surgery focuses on improving one’s appearance. It is not billable to your insurance because it is not considered medically necessary. For example:
- Lower eyelid surgery is considered a “cosmetic” surgery when the goal is to make the lids smoother by reducing puffiness, excess skin, and dark circles.
- It is unusual for medical insurance to help pay for this type of procedure.
Consultations are complimentary and will help us provide you with specific financial details. Package discounts and special offers are also available.
