Cosmetic Surgery Q & A

What is cosmetic surgery?

Cosmetic surgery encompasses procedures designed to improve or enhance your appearance. There are numerous options to choose from, some of which create more dramatic results than others. 

Health insurance does not typically cover cosmetic procedures. However, if the surgery corrects a current health issue, it may be covered under certain circumstances. 

Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, is a good example. When sagging eyelids interfere with your vision, droopy eyelid correction surgery may be covered by your health insurance. 

What is ptosis?

Ptosis, or blepharoptosis, is the medical term used to describe drooping upper eyelids. The condition can affect people of any age, and can even impact children. In some cases, the drooping is pronounced enough to limit eyesight. It often makes you look older and more tired than you are.  

Surgery can correct ptosis and is conducted as an outpatient procedure at Fry Eye Surgery Center. Your surgeon carefully removes excess skin on your eyelid. The remaining skin is redraped and sutured together to create an improved profile.  

What is a brow lift, and how can it improve my appearance?

A brow lift is a type of cosmetic surgery used to improve the appearance of your forehead, brow area, and the skin around your eyes. It’s a widely-used procedure, especially among older men and women who are bothered by sagging and wrinkled forehead skin. 

All areas of your body change as you navigate the aging process. You lose much of the collagen that pads your face, which leaves your skin sagging into lines, folds, and wrinkles. 

A brow lift smooths and tightens that skin, creating a more youthful and well-rested appearance. The results last for many years, although your skin will continue to go through changes as you move through the phases of life.
