Surgery tomorrow at 7:45. I am afraid of the swelling I have seen in some people photos. I have not seen my post op instructions was told I will get them when leaving after the surgery. I've read what I can find online in order to try to prepare. I am having what is called 'twilight'... READ MORE

I had my upper eyelid surgery done on 01/22/2015. I’m not going to lie, I was terrified. But in the end, the whole thing was so easy. I had my procedure done under local anesthesia in Dr. Patel’s office. At first I was a little nervous about being awake, but it was no big deal. I used... READ MORE

I am 64 and although people say I look good for my age I was feeling like my eyes always looked very worn out and made me look very tired. My eyes used to be one of my best features and they were looking smaller every year and my eyelids were drooping. It was constantly upsetting me. My mother... READ MORE

After reading so many stories of heartbreak and disappointment I was more than a little nervous to undergo an upper Bleph procedure. After all, you can't put skin back once it's removed. But my upper eyelids were interfering with my peripheral vision so I had to do something. Dr. Johl is the... READ MORE

I have scheduled a Ptosis repair surgery for my left eye and an upper and lower blepharplasty. I'm pretty nervous but as you can see from my photos, my left eye is pretty bad. My eye doctor has recommended the surgeon I'll be using, Dr. John Lindsey, and Dr. Lindsey and his staff seem very... READ MORE

November 1, 2013 I had an eyebrow & upper lid lift. I was 49 years old and had never had any complications from any procedures. My right eye healed perfectly but my left eye did not. The doctor who performed my surgery attempted a correction 20 days after my original surgery. The result of this... READ MORE

My upper eyelids were very droopy with a significant amount of saggy extra skin. I had huge hereditary fat bags under my eyes that were always dark. I visited 3 doctors before deciding on Dr. Zoumalan. I am thrilled with the results. The surgery took more than 10 years off my appearance and... READ MORE

First time I went in for a consultation with Dr. Mitchell, I liked him right away. He took his time answering my questions and allaying whatever concern I had. My eye surgery (upper bleph) went very well with minimal pain. Dr. Mitchell and Lauritta, his OR nurse were very calming and... READ MORE

After making excuse after excuse for always looking tired in photographs, I decided to consult with a plastic surgeon about the possibilities of improving my tired looking eyes. My upper eyelids were very heavy with extra skin partially covering my eyes. In addition, my lower eyelids had lost... READ MORE

Over the past couple of years I noticed my eyelids drooping more and more. Not only did my field of vision decrease, but I also looked older and tired. I decided to talk with my optometrist and she recommended Dr. Gordon. It was obvious to both of us that this surgery did need to be done to... READ MORE

My eyelids made me look much older than I really was. The prognosis was that my eyes would get worse as the years passed. The heavy lids were obscuring my upper vision and also made me look in photographs as though my eyes were partially closed. The operation was unpleasant but it did not take... READ MORE

Ive had hooded eyelids for the past 10 yrs and over time they have become excessively worse. I was wearing eyelashes to hold them back from blocking my eyesight however from a side view my face appeared somewhat disfigured. I'm scheduled for the 14th of August at Kaiser Vacaville with Dr. Gold... READ MORE

I'm 51 and SO ready to finally get rid of these bags under my eyes that have bothered me since childhood! Curious to hear feedback from any of you who may have feedback/experience with doctors in my area. I've had one consultation with a San Francisco "Top Doctor" here on RealSelf, I am... READ MORE

I am 37, and I had upper and lower (transcutaneous) blepharoplasty about 7 weeks ago. Below is a summary of the complications I have encountered. I'm putting this out there because I'd love to "compare notes" in comments with other folks who have had similar experiences. Painful Stitch --... READ MORE

I fill so happy I look 10 years younger, can't wait... READ MORE

I developed ptosis at 21 years old. My eyelid prior was slowly drooping until one day it fell completely. After a neurological work up and not finding anything wrong I decided on surgery with Dr. Ronald Kristian. The initial results were good, but three days later my lid fell. At first it... READ MORE

I have never been able to see my upper eyelids. I have never worn makeup - behind mascara, for this reason. Everything would just smudge off and all over my face. So I have always dreamed of having an upper eyelid worthy of the smoky eye look. Of course, growing older hasn't helped either. ... READ MORE

I've always had undereye bags even as a teenager.. they didn't really bother me until my 40-ies. When the whole face started to go south the bags looked really horrible. I always looked tired and sad. It was annoying getting asked every day if I was okay, what's wrong, what happened... and just... READ MORE
