Dr. Justin Johnsen, the eyelid expert (oculofacial plastic surgeon) explains what causes droopy eyelids and what you can do to look refreshed and revived.
Dr. Johnson has performed hundreds of eyelid procedures. Many times it can be covered by insurance is it affects the eyesight of the patient. That normally affects the upper eyelid. He has also performed lower lid procedures and insurance has covered some of those costs, too.
It’s also important to determine if a patient needs an eyelid procedure or a brow lift. They can both have some of the same effects, but are different and can have different outcomes. A consultation with a patient can help determine which is the best for the individual patient.
