At Andersen Eye Surgery Center, all oculoplastic surgery is performed by Dr. Gregory Hazen, a Board Certified, Fellowship Trained Ophthalmologist. He is specifically trained oculoplastic surgery to improve appearance and protect vision and performs surgery in both the office and our state-of-the-art surgical facility on an outpatient basis.
Oculoplastic surgery repairs the result of injury, improves the appearance of the eyelid and, most importantly, allows the eyelids to adequately protect the eye. Eyelid surgeries are also called blepharoplasty.
Eyelid surgery is preformed as an outpatient procedure under local anesthesia with or without sedation. The procedures are typically 15 to 45 minutes long and patients usually return to normal activity in a few days. Details of each customized surgical plan and recovery period are discussed at the consultation visit. You will need to bring your contacts or glasses to your consultation.

Health insurance and procedure costs
If your vision is affected or if there is a medical reason for the procedure, your health insurance may cover all or part of the fee. However, health insurance typically does not cover a "cosmetic" procedure, so if there is no medical need for the surgery the patient may be expected to cover all costs.
