If the hooding of excess skin in the upper eyelids is severe enough, sometimes insurance will help pay for an upper eyelid blepharoplasty.  With a large amount of excess, the eyelids hang down low enough to interfere with peripheral vision.  That visual problem can be documented, and then the insurance company might consider the operation functional rather than cosmetic.

Questioner: My plastic surgeon doesn't use drain tubes after Neck Lift/Facelift. Is that okay?
(Questioner submitted photos)

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Drains after facelift
Deb,

This is a question that cosmetic surgeons discuss regularly and you will find many different opinions. Most feel drains do help minimize seromas (fluid collections under the skin) and improve the recovery process. Some surgeons use fibrin sealants which also work well. Others just depend on dressings and pressure.  In general, however, if your surgeon is experienced with facelifts and getting excellent results, then whether or not they use drains should not be an issue.

Best of luck with your procedure-
