Blepharoplasty Surgical Procedure

Dr. Zollman performs blepharoplasty as an outpatient procedure that tends to last less than three hours. During the eyelid surgery, Dr. Zollman creates an incision along the natural lines of your eyelids and removes the additional skin, fat, and muscle that contributed to the drooping lids and puffy bags. Using small sutures, he will close the incisions and complete the eyelid surgery. After blepharoplasty, you may experience minor side effects, including light sensitivity, dry eyes, and inflammation. These symptoms should subside in one to two weeks.

Financing Eyelid Surgery

In order for an insurance company to cover blepharoplasty, Indiana plastic surgeon Wally Zollman, M.D., must indicate that the eyelid surgery is a medical necessity. Dr. Zollman will only be able to make this statement if your eyelids are obstructing your peripheral vision or are otherwise hindering your vision. Even if Dr. Zollman informs the insurance company that the blepharoplasty is medically necessary, it does not guarantee that the insurance carrier will pay for the surgery.

If your blepharoplasty is not covered by insurance, but you are still interested in the eyelid surgery, our Indianapolis, Indiana plastic surgery practice offers various options for financing your cosmetic surgery costs. A member of the Zollman Plastic Surgery staff can work with you to decide which available payment plan or loan program will suit your situation.
