I have sub-clinical hypothyroid and I want an upper transcutaneous lower blepharoplasty. I'm concerned about developing festoons or having other issues.  My TSH is a little high at 5.3 and my T3 is low at 60. The PS I've chosen wants me to get treated for my hypothyroid before I get surgery. (Synthroid and Armour make me lose my hair... so I don't want to take the meds...) Other plastic surgeons I've spoken with are less cautious. So, have you had your eyes done even though your thyroid is out of whack? How did it work out for you?
