Heavy Upper Eyelid

Dermatochalasis, or droopy upper eyelid skin, is a common complaint often made apparent as eyebrows descend with age, causing the eyelid skin to bunch. Dr. Durboraw is a board-certified oculoplastic surgeon specializing in the surgical correction of dermatochalasis. Blepharoplasty Surgery is the most commonly performed plastic surgery procedure for patients suffering from dermatochalasis. The surgery works by removing excess eyelid skin and contouring fat pockets to reduce unattractive bulging on the eyelids. In cases where the excess eyelid skin is causing visual obstruction, insurance companies will sometimes consider the procedure medically necessary. During your consultation, Dr. Durboraw will assess your condition and let you know if she thinks your eyelid surgery will qualify for insurance.
