Blepharoplasty is upper and/or lower eyelid cosmetic surgery usually performed for redundancy of the skin and fat of eyelids. Insurance companies occasionally pay for upper lid surgery if the lids get in the way of the patient’s vision. The rate they pay is usually the problem. It is pretty low in Southern California.
