Just eyelid surgery or "The Works"
My advice....look around before commiting to what sounds like more than you're looking for. F
Blepharoplasty or more?
This situation is not unusual. My suggestion is to approach it step-by-step.
What are the things that worry you? How much money do you have? Surgery to the lower deals with that lid droop, but sometimes that can be addresses by fillers, depending on exactly what your problem is.
Droopy upper lids or hoods can be addressed with upper lid blepharoplasty.
Some Plastic Surgeons use far transfers, and some do not, preferring to use fillers and/or surgery.
There are a few choices, and Plastic Surgeons will differ slightly with their approach- after all, our graining as a specialist is about changes or adjustments to tissue, which is the origin of the word "plastic' in Plastic Surgeon. And there is rarely only 1 approach to these changes/
In my opinion, you can never replace a face-to-face consultation with a Plastic Surgeon with an online opinion. The price of a consultation is worth it to get to a point where you are making the right plans for you with the right Surgeon for you. After all, this is surgery- treat it with respect.
I hope this has been of some value and wish you well.
