Cosmetic eyelid surgery can treat loose and sagging eyelid skin that interfers with vision, puffiness from excess fatty deposits, bags under the eyes, lower eyelid droopiness and excess skin and wrinkles in the lower eyelids. When your skin around your eyes is firm you appear younger and more energetic.
If excess eyelid skin hampers your ability to see clearly, it may the a condition covered under health insurance.
