Is an eyelid reconstructive procedure covered by insurance?

We will answer all your cost-related questions before you decide to undergo this surgery so that you are fully aware of how much you are going to pay.

Your doctor will tell you how much eyelid reconstruction will cost and if you might be able to cover a part of the expenses by using your insurance.

This intervention is usually not covered by insurance if it is required only for cosmetic purposes. You might cover the costs with your insurance if the eyelid defect impairs vision.

Several factors might influence the cost of your procedure:

  • the complexity of the intervention
  • the type of anesthesia that will be used
  • the doctor’s experience
