Our Ann Arbor plastic surgeons perform eyelid lift surgery, technically called blepharoplasty, to create youthful contours for the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both. These procedures revive the eye area by removing sagging skin from the upper eyelids, tightening droopy lower eyelids, and reducing puffy bags from underneath the eyes, which can also improve dark circles. Eyelid surgery can also improve the visual field of patients whose sagging upper eyelids interfere with and obstruct their peripheral vision.
Keep in mind that each patient is unique and your results may vary.

While we no longer participate with insurance, we do offer a self-pay option to give patients the opportunity to receive insurance benefits for medically necessary procedures. With the self-pay option, patients have their procedure performed in the hospital by our physicians. Patients pay upfront for physician fees and are responsible for initiating the reimbursement request with their insurance company. If you have questions or would like to explore this option, please call us at (734) 712-2323.
