Surgery can also change the shape of the eye, such as in Asian Eyelid Surgery or to address droopy eyelidsLEARN 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

Dr Mat James gave me an upper bletharoplasty a lower gelks pinch and a facial fat transfer. I am so happy with my results my scars are barely noticeable and it's only been 8 days now, I love waking up every day because every day is even better. 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

I love being older, I just don't want to look it. My eyelids were so saggy that I could not put on eyeshadow without dragging the skin. Also, had some veins that were showing through and some wrinkles in my lower eye. This bothered me so I consulted Dr. Suzanne Yee to make the needed corrections... READ MORE

My upper lids were laying on my eyelashes and affecting my vision. It was to the point my contacts were being pushed around on my eyeballs from the weight of my lids. I'm very happy with the surgery and the outcome. The surgery was a bit more involved than I anticipated - I think because my... READ MORE

Thank you so much for your advice. I've met with Dr. Kass, Dr. Scheiner in Tampa Bay & Dr. Fagien in S. Florida. All three of them had different recommendations for eyelid surgery. It's hard to see through all of the marketing--Honest responses from patients mean a lot to me! I am 43 years old.... READ MORE

I had eyelid surgery due to very heavy eyelids and wanting to wear contacts again. I visited several doctors and Dr. Ness's credentials are outstanding as well as answering all my questions. However, one eye turned out great, the other he missed the crease of my eye and I have a large, clearly... READ MORE

I decided that as this was the last time for a while visiting Thailand to go to the dentist, I would have my eyes done. I did quite a lot of research and decided on Dr. Pongsakorn Eamtanaporn at the Phuket Aesthetic Surgery Clinic Thailand. Its going to cost me 57,000 Baht or AUD 2200. I have... READ MORE

I have had prominent bags underneath my eyes for several years and FINALLY am going to just "go for it" and have lower lid bleph. Since I am a 53, a little concerned about healing taking longer and also the fact that my doctor is going to use outside stitches which will scar. He did mention it... READ MORE

I would have a full nights sleep and someone would always tell me I looked tired- I just turned 40 and it was time to have this fixed. Living in South Florida I have seen many bad eye jobs. I did a lot of research to find the right Doctor and I am so lucky I found Doctor Felder! I thought I was... READ MORE

I won't say too much about the motivational stuff, I would rather just share with you my delight at the way the op was performed. There was a warm and caring environment, and extreme care was taken to ensure that I was comfortable. The operation itself took less than an hour. As the operation... READ MORE

I just had my upper and lower eyelids done today. It included a transconjunctival blepharoplasty, eye pinch and repositioning through IV sedation and local anesthesia. I originally only wanted the lowers since the uppers didn't really bother me, but I had some droopiness so I thought I'd take... READ MORE

Around the time I started to seriously consider this surgery all I wanted was talk to someone who had been through this before. I wanted candid, detailed discussion, the good the bad the ugly and the hopefully pretty results! Ali Wentworth’s story and videos were a wonderful example, and... READ MORE
