This is something i needed to have done since my teen years- my eyes were so puffy and baggy, they weighed down on my eyeballs. I was always being asked if i was tired or angry. As i got older the problem got worse.
A friend told me about Dr Clutter & suggested i set up a consult. He explained everything and i was comfortable booking surgery. The surgery itself was a couple of hours-... more
The excess skin on my eyelids made me look and feel tired and older than I am. I started thinking about blepharoplasty when I was in my late 40's.
