There are no pros to upper eyelid surgery. I was left with a lot of hollowness, scarring in the inner corner of my eyelid and shortage of skin.

The cons are that it is a risky procedure, if you don't go to the right doctor, you will be out of luck. Not much can be done for too much fat and skin that has been taken out of your upper eyelids and you will end up looking older from a skeletonized appearance.

I am in the process of having to get a skin graft on my left upper eyelid due to the skin that Dr. Nesmith took off. I am unable to close my left upper eyelid and must use cling wrap and use an eye patch with dry eye ointment in it every night. I also am unable to wear any make-up due to the loss of skin. I am left with hollowness as well as too much fat was removed. There is not much else that can be done when too much skin and fat have been removed. If anyone is intent on doing it; please seek an oculoplastic surgeon for this procedure who will take your individual eyes into account and will be conservative with skin and fat removal and not damage the integrity of your eyes.

This procedure changed my life forever. I have functional problems with my eyelids and cosmetic problems as well. What I wish I had known before that not all plastic surgeons are skilled at eyelid surgery and to minimize risks, one should only go to an oculoplastic surgeon instead of a general plastic surgeon like Dr. Nesmith.
