Pros: Looked good; opened eyes for a less sleepy look
Cons: results only lasted two years...maybe less. Visible scars on eyelid corners.
I went in to surgeon's office for follow-up a year later, and his assistant was trying to talk me into considering other procedures. She said, "have you considered eyelid surgery?"
I had gone to a free seminar by two surgeons (not the one I used) and asked how long the eyelid is supposed to last. "Forever" was the answer, so I went ahead with it. There are reasons some of us have droopy upper eyelids: genetics and gravity. And those reasons overcome surgical results after a couple of years.

He's a big talker. And he adds on costs and costs and more costs. I don't remember the final total tally.
