Eyelid Surgery Made a Huge Difference - New Haven, CT

I had my lower and upper lids done about 10 years...

I had my lower and upper lids done about 10 years ago...I was 53. It was the first thing I ever had done and made a huge improvement in my appearance. Pretty intense pain for one day, then just uncomfortable. Took one week off from work and looked a little bruised when I went back, but everyone knew what I had done, so it really didn't matter.

Rather than spend a fortune on creams, etc. that really don't correct the problem, I think it's better to have it surgically corrected. Glad I did it...No cons....


Just saw this...Yes, now 12 years and looks good...I'm hoping that was it!!! We'll see. Hope your surgery went well....

I'm considering having both upper and lower lids done...10 years ago and your eyes still look great?!? I've heard that the procedure lasts 20-25 years....?? Does that sound right? I'm both nervous and excited to do this. I'm happy to hear you had such a positive experience. Thanks for sharing.

Dr. Goodkind operated on my daughter and a friend after a snowmobile accident, so I knew his work was excellent before I consulted him for myself. He is very easy to talk to and will explain exactly what he will do and how long before you're back to 100%. I highly recommend him.
