Would highly recommend Dr Linder and his staff. My elderly father has had some serious issues requiring surgery that included 2 other specialists. These drs gave up several hours of their weekend to team up for my dad's surgery. Much appreciated!

Dr. Linder was kind and compassionate. He took care of my issue immediately. He was thorough, very professional and explained everything in detail. His office staff was fantastic! Marla, and his nurse Maya, were just so nice and put me at ease before a procedure about which I was anxious when I entered the office. I highly recommend his practice.

Essential Facts You Need to Know Before Treatment

Insurance

Insurance coverage for your surgery depends on significant visual obstruction caused by eyelid drooping. If your drooping meets the criteria for insurance coverage, we will conduct the necessary tests to establish medical necessity and submit the information to your insurance company for approval. However, if your eyelid drooping does not impact your vision significantly, the surgery will be considered cosmetic. In such cases, Dr. Linder will discuss self-pay pricing with you. Lower eyelid sagging and fat pouches are not covered by insurance and will be treated as cosmetic procedures. While we do not offer payment plans, you can visit www.carecredit.com to apply for a healthcare credit card. With Care Credit, you can pay for our services upfront and then manage your monthly payments according to your preferences.

Surgery preparation

To ensure a smooth surgical experience, please fast for 8 hours before surgery. Additionally, arrange reliable transportation for check-in, waiting, and returning home. Prepare for surgery by ceasing the use of aspirin products and blood thinners 5-7 days prior. Avoiding products containing aspirin (e.g., Aspirin, Aleve, Ibuprofen, BC Powder, Fish Oil), while Tylenol/acetaminophen products are safe. If you take prescription blood thinners, obtain a cardiac clearance from your doctor to stop the medication 5 days before surgery. Inform our office of your blood thinner and prescribing doctor’s details for assistance in this process.

Post-op Travel

To ensure your safety and well-being, Dr. Linder and the surgical facility have implemented a strict policy regarding patient release. Following any procedure, only a trusted friend, relative, or designated driver will be allowed to pick you up from the facility. This individual will not only drive you to the surgery but also wait for you in the waiting room and safely transport you back home. It’s essential to adhere to this requirement, even if you feel capable of driving yourself.

Recovery

After eyelid surgery, recovery time varies based on the procedure’s extent. However, most patients can resume normal activities within one week. Individual experiences of side effects may differ. Mild to moderate swelling for three to four days and potential bruising for up to two weeks are typical. Redness, bruising at the incision site, temporary blurred vision, watery eyes, light sensitivity, or dryness are also common. Patients can alleviate bruising and swelling by using cold compresses and keeping their head elevated. Dr. Linder will provide specific post-operative instructions. Sutures are typically removed after one week, and Dr. Linder usually requests a follow-up appointment one month later. Additional visits can be scheduled as needed.
