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

I'm half Asian and half Caucasian so I've always had hooded eyes. They were never a problem until a few years ago when my whole face just slowly started to drop. Before my surgery my eyelids almost touched my upper lashes and made me look about 10 years older than I am, IMO. Had a chin... READ MORE

I am starting the mental spinning on this procedure even though intellectually I trust the dr, the staff, and the aftercare. I'm just afraid I won't be able to check out with the TV because it will strain/hurt my eyes. I'm also PMS ing so perfect timing. I think writing about it will help. This... READ MORE

My eyelids have started to get really baggy over the years and I'd become aware how tired I feel all the time. My right eye especially was really bad, and the skin was sagging over the lid. I had a photo taken during a party about a year ago, and my eye was drooping so much, it looked like I had... READ MORE

After researching plastic surgeons I met with Dr. Tholen at Minneapolis Plastic Surgery for a consultation for Breast Augmentation and knew he was the Dr. for me. A year later I revisited Dr. Tholen, still had the same confidence that he was the surgeon for me. I spent the year obsessed with... READ MORE

I had both upper and lower eye lid surgery on April 18th by Dr. Gary Smith in Roseville, CA. He did an amazing job on my eyes and did a little lipo under my chin for a small additional cost. I'm healing wonderfully and am thrilled with the results! I've also been doing mild hyperbaric... READ MORE

35-year-old tired of looking tired. Inherited my mothers big beautiful eyes along with the bags! I've always had them as long as I can remember. They've become more prominent with age and sleepless nights with babies! Had Lower lid transcongunctival blepharoplasty with CO2 laser under eyes... READ MORE

I had been contemplating upper and lower blepharoplasty surgery for about two years and I had done extensive research on the subject. I finally decided to have an upper blepharoplasty only and not both as lower blepharoplasty appeared to be more complicated with greater risks. The aging process... READ MORE

Love my results. The procedure is not painful at all with sedation nor after. However, my eyes were irritated for some time and I only got relief with eye wash and eye drops. Best to have those items on hand. I always had dark circles which became harder to cover as I got older. Now I do not... READ MORE

This was the biggest no deal I've ever had done. I've had DENTAL work that was worse. OMG - I'm SO happy!!! First, I had the procedure done at Dr. Maffi's office in Scottsdale. He did my sister's eye surgery - upper and lower and it looks fantastic. So I just really needed blephroplasty. I... READ MORE

Excellent job! I am 69 and wanted to decrease the dark circles accentuated by the bags under my eyes with as little anesthesia as possible. My surgery was performed as an outpatient in the Dr's office. I required only oral medication preoperatively. I barely remember the surgery at all as any... READ MORE

After seeing another review on RealSelf for Dr. Sadove in Gainesville, Florida, I went for a consultation and booked my appointment for Thursday. Dr. Sandove is running a RealSelf special for upper eye Blepharoplasty for $1950. I'm posting a photo showing two images of myself. The one on the... READ MORE

Day After Surgery- I feel good. No pain at all. Eyes are "sticky" and tight. Swollen pretty good, icing eyes and keeping head elevated. I'm taking the Arnica tablets and antibiotics as directed. Haven't had a need to take ANY pain medicine. Slept great last night after getting home from hospital... READ MORE

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

I am working very hard to drop pounds and get my back/core strong (I've had two lower back surgeries.) When I get to my goal weight, it will be time to fix this sad, old looking face. My hope is to do this this summer if possible. I have been reading reviews for a few months now and searching... READ MORE

I would like to start off by saying I was very skeptical about having eye surgery due to the fact that its my eyes and I have had other procedures done in the past (by other doctors) with awful results. Dr. Felder came very highly recommended to me. I did my research on him and a few other... READ MORE

Well tomorrow is the day. I'm very excited, and a bit nervous all at the same time. There was a time in my life where my eyes were one of my best features ... but not so much any more. I hate seeing pictures of myself, I always look tired. Well, tomorrow, I hope to change all that, and get... READ MORE

It's already 6 months since I had lower blepharoplasty done however the problems I encountered before surgery is still somewhat prominent. The hollowing under my lid and my under eye bags are still very prominent. Honestly I look like a football player! I do not understand what happened. My... READ MORE

After lower eyelid surgery to remove bags. This scars directly underneath my eyes have somewhat cleared up but now it seems like I have bags near my cheekbones! I tried to take a picture of it so you guys could see. I'm not sure what to do! The surgeon said that it'll clear up entirely in... READ MORE

I have just returned from my visit to Iscare in Prague. Had upper and lower eye lift. Probably like everyone else I was apprehensive about surgery abroad but I did my research and decided on Vera Satankova. Before leaving the UK I had both negative and positive comments about going abroad for... READ MORE

November 1, 2013 I had an eyebrow & upper lid lift. I was 49 years old and had never had any complications from any procedures. My right eye healed perfectly but my left eye did not. The doctor who performed my surgery attempted a correction 20 days after my original surgery. The result of this... READ MORE
