Thanks for your question and photos. This is a common question that we get from patients. The answer depends on your insurance and unfortunately, I am unfamiliar with GHI UFT. However, I can tell you that most insurance companies will pay for an upper lid blepharoplasty if you can document that it is affecting the peripheral vision (in photos and visual field tests) and the skin is overhanging the lashes. Insurance companies rarely, if ever, cover lower lid blepharoplasty surgery.
I hope this helps.
