Yes. Our office does provide this service. Through the technique used in our office for lower eyelid blepharoplasty, lower eyelid canthopexy is seldom required. If it is, this part of the service can be billed to your insurance.
We usually avoid the need for pulling the corners of the lower eyelids (canthopexy) because we do not remove skin from the lower eyelids. This technique is more difficult for the surgeon, but it also has the benefit of requiring no stitches. In people where this type of procedure is required, that part of the surgery is billed to insurance.
