My Aunt had her eyelids done.
At 90 y.o. they had drooped so badly she could hardly see, it was certainly not cosmetic surgery.
This is a bogus story. First, the article makes it sound as though this is something that started recently. It did not. I had an older neighbor who had this eyelid surgery 15 years ago. It vastly improved his vision and didn’t help at all with his looks. Medicare paid for it.
As I recall, Medicare will not pay for surgery for the bags under one’s eyes because the bags do not effect your sight and thus this type of surgery is considered to be purely cosmetic work.
I have blepharoplasty. My eye doctor says surgical correction is covered if it interferes with your vision.
