Blepharoplasty Surgery in Wilmington, NC
la Belle vie Plastic Surgery
As skin ages, it loses its elasticity. As a result, excess eyelid skin can often impair vision, cause an unrested appearance, and add age. An upper eyelid lift, or blepharoplasty, removes this excess skin to improve these unwanted symptoms. At times, fat removal from around the upper and inner eye assists in achieving a younger, more youthful appearance. Bagginess from the lower eyelids can also be treated with a lower eyelid lift.
Referred to as a “functional upper blepharoplasty,” this procedure is covered by some insurance companies with the additional documentation needed. Typically, the patient has to prove the surgery is a necessity. For example, drooping lids impacting vision. This can be further evaluated at a face to face consultation with the surgeon.
Those who are ideal candidates are middle-aged people in good health with droopy lids or excess fat. Also, anyone who thinks these symptoms run in the family should contact us for an eyelid lift consultation. Not only will our surgeons help to restore your confidence, but they’ll also give you peace of mind too.
The following documentation requirements are requested by all insurance companies to be considered as proof for medical necessity for a panniculectomy.
- Copies of your taped and untaped visual fields from your ophthalmologist showing improvement in vision with taping the eyelids
- We will take photos in the office at your consult to also submit to your insurance company with the visual field documentation.
In order to submit a prior authorization request to your insurance company, we would need all of the above-mentioned documentation in the office before to submission of request.

Thank you Dr. Church, Midge, Glenda, and staff for all you’ve done for me.
❤️Thank you, thank you, thank you❤️
The best office and bedside manners I have ever experienced in all my years. I was in a major car accident and with what I was dealing with he and his staff help me forget and have a little peace each time I had an appointment ❣
I also want to say Midge and Jillian were the best assistants ever. They both were 2 of the sweetest ladies ever. Actually the first surgery I had I was so worried I asked Midge would she please go help him with my surgery. She said yes sweetheart I will be there with him, now I was asleep and don’t know if she was or not but just thinking she was there helped me out a lot. Oh and Dr Church plays some awesome music while in surgery or either I dreamed it.
Dr Church, Midge & Jillian you will always be my favorite.
