Surgery can also change the shape of the eye, such as in Asian Eyelid Surgery or to address droopy eyelidsLEARN MORE ›

Today was my upper blepharoplasty surgery. I chose to have it done under local anesthesia .They gave me 2 Xanax prior to going in to relax me. The first lidocaine needle on each eyelid hurt and then the other two barely did as the first kicked right in. Three in each lid. I couldn't even tell... READ MORE

I've had hollow under eyes for several years. Also lately my upper lids have sagged down pretty bad too. I tried tightening things up with a Co2 laser, which was great while it was swollen but everything dropped down again once swelling was gone. My surgery is one month from tomorrow. Reading...

Over the last two years I found myself having to ice my eyes most every morning for my under eye bags. I also had under chin jowls and fine lines had developed around my mouth although I am not a smoker. I went to see Dr. Reagan who came highly recommended by my esthetician. He informed me...

I am 51 and my eyelids starting drooping a couple of years ago, to make things worse one lid droops far worse than the other. The last few years I've had Botox to try to even them up, but it's not working anymore and I want my large bright eyes again! Tomorrow is the big day, all my... READ MORE

This site has been really helpful so I am sharing my story. I am scheduled for upper blepharoplasty and laser resurfacing of the lower lids next week. I'm feeling good about my doctor and the decision. But I am getting feedback from friends that i am 'too young' or 'crazy' to let someone cut... READ MORE

Soy Médica y conozco al Dr Pavajeau desde hace más de ocho años. El Dr Pavajeau me realizo blefaroplastia superior e inferior , ya que por ser alérgica presentaba exceso de piel y por lo mismo párpado caído , lo que me generaba fatiga visual. Llevo un mes de la cirugía y me fue muy bien. No pre... READ MORE

I also had some lipo done gor this price. I was so indecisive about having my eyes done, I should have listened to my gut & not done it. I thought having it done 4/8/16 that would give me time to heal before reunion & vacation 6/11/16. I CAN NOT wear my contacts (scar left lower lid, I... READ MORE

Dr. Lee performed surgery on my right eyelid in February 2016, but my journey to Dr. Lee began two years ago. Approximately two years ago, I developed an annoying twitching in my right eye that made me more aware of persistent issues that I've had probably my entire life. My right eye always... READ MORE

Hi all...I'm soon to be 51. I'm going to share my story as many already have. Finding this site has helped so much! I have developed bags under my eyes. My right eye is much worse then my left. It began when I was about 30 and gets progressively worse with time. I will post pics later. I... READ MORE

I recently had my double eyelid surgery done by Dr. Peter Newen. As soon as I came out of the operating room, I looked in the mirror and LOVED it! Dr. Newen is incredibly skilled in ensuring symmetry of the eyes. He was also able to achieve the western look that I desired to have. His stitching... READ MORE

I considered eyelid surgery for about a year and did a lot of research (including stories on Realself). Every time I looked in a mirror, all I could see was my droopy eyelids and under eye bags. My confidence and bubbly personality was slowly dwindling. So....for my 47th birthday I decided to... READ MORE

I hated the bags I inherited from my grandma! I would have much rather inherited her Italian cooking skills, but I didn't. I researched my doctor because this was my face and I didn't want any to to rush into it and end up paying the rest of my life for a couple of hours I didn't want to invest... READ MORE

I went to Dr. Nadia Blanchet. I have had the BEST experience with Dr. Blanchet and all of her staff. She listened to my concerns, she told me her thoughts and we went from there. One year later and I love my eyes. I was worried they would look totally different but they improved instead of... READ MORE

Avoid! Avoid! Avoid! This surgeon has left my face disfigured. One of my eyes now wont close and the other eye barely opens. Now  I  will be wearing sunglasses for the rest of my life both indoors and outdoors. I am unable to go out at night due to wearing sunglasses so no one will... READ MORE

I just had my upper and lower eyelids done today. It included a transconjunctival blepharoplasty, eye pinch and repositioning through IV sedation and local anesthesia. I originally only wanted the lowers since the uppers didn't really bother me, but I had some droopiness so I thought I'd take... READ MORE

Went from 335cc to 550cc anatomical gummy bear. Haven't had a chance to look at breasts due to bandages still... READ MORE

For the past few years I've noticed my under eye bags were getting worse. When I smile, they are very noticeable, and they drive me crazy! I decided to have a lower bleph done. My doctor also recommended have the area below my eye laser resurfaced, to take out the fine lines under there and to... READ MORE
