It is unusual in most cases that insurance would be available to cover a facial plastic surgery procedure, aside from rhinoplasty. Eyelid surgery coverage is rare, but it is not always impossible to get help affording the treatment that you need. Health insurance providers often want a legitimate referral from a doctor that is recommending eyelid surgery as a solution to a medical issue. If a prior surgery has caused the upper eyelid to stop functioning correctly, it might be left to a plastic surgeon to help fix the issue. Our expert in Asian eyelid surgery in Beverly Hills can also help people with very thick skin see better through a procedure. This could be considered more of a functional issue than cosmetic, even though a plastic surgeon would be the one to offer treatment.
It is really difficult to predict each situation that the eyelid surgery cost might be covered by insurance, so each patient needs to learn about their own unique options. Depending on the treatment that you desire, it might be more affordable than you think to personally invest in the surgery. Sometimes insurance can help alleviate some of the financial burden as you go through a treatment that will provide more than one advantage.
