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.
See post#2 above yours. Obviously you are full of it. Who cares what someone looks like at age 90. It’s not a cosmetic surgery and you wrote that you had an older neighbor whose vision improved by the surgery and then you complain that his looks did not improve.
