What’s the next step after my medical insurer denied my surgeon’s request for authorization of
Will my insurance cover my upper eye lid surgery?

When an insurance company denies a request for medically necessary surgery, you may have to appeal.  If the appeal also is denied you may have to have the surgeon do a peer to peer review with the insurance company.  Upper eyelid surgery is often considered cosmetic and denied fairly regularly.  They want to make sure that you meet the criteria before they will approve a surgery like this.

Should I get microblading before or after upper eyelid surgery?
Feb 12, 2020
I personally would wait until after you do surgery.  A skilled facial plastic surgeon will look at your eyelids and not the eyebrows when deciding how much skin to remove. I recommend waiting 6 to 8 weeks after your upper eyelid surgery has healed to have microblading performed.  If you don’t plan to have surgery for a few years, you can have microblading done any time and it won’t affect the outcome in the future. Good luck!Michael R. Macdonald, MD, FACS, FRCSC
