Frequently asked questions about Charlotte eyelid surgery

Here are some frequently asked questions about Charlotte eyelid surgery, along with the answers.


How much does eye lid surgery cost, and is it covered by insurance or Medicaid?

It depends on a number of different things — where you’re having it done, whether you’re having upper lids, lower lids or both worked on, and whether you’re getting local or general anesthesia. You’ll have to ask your surgeon. Unless it’s to deal with a medical issue such as obstructed vision, you’ll have to pay for it yourself.


Why do my eyes look uneven, and can it be fixed with eyelid surgery?

The most beautiful human faces are those that are closest to perfect symmetry, but very few faces approach this. If your eyes are so uneven that people notice, the problem may be that one of your eyelids is drooping, in which case it should be possible to correct the defect. If the lack of symmetry is built into the orbital bones, eye lid surgery can’t fix this but might make it harder to spot.


My eyes look old, but my surgeon says the problem is really my forehead. Is this possible?

It is. As we age, the skin of the forehead sags downward and shifts to the center, sometimes moving into the space of the eyes. In these cases, a brow lift will fix the problem, instead of eyelid surgery.
