Blepharoplasty, also known as eyelid surgery or eyelid lift, is a cosmetic procedure that removes or tightens sagging skin around the eyes, resulting in a smoother, more taut appearance. Surgery can also change the shape of the eye, such as in Asian Eyelid Surgery or to address droopy eyelidsLEARN MORE ›

I have always had dark circles and a huge fan of concealer but I had to draw the when I got the bags. I finally decided to do the surgery after seeing a picture I took over the weekend. I had been doing a ton of research and had some different opinions from different doctors but I went with the... READ MORE

I thought long and hard before having Blephro on my upper eyelid and finally made the decision it was something I really wanted. I had an eye lid injury 10 years ago so my right eye was droopier and puffier than my left. That was the driving force behind wanting the procedure. I had the... READ MORE

I decided that as this was the last time for a while visiting Thailand to go to the dentist, I would have my eyes done. I did quite a lot of research and decided on Dr. Pongsakorn Eamtanaporn at the Phuket Aesthetic Surgery Clinic Thailand. Its going to cost me 57,000 Baht or AUD 2200. I have... 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'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...

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

Just had my lower blephroplasty today. Eyes are bruised and swollen. Pain is not bad! Dr. Rosing and his surgical team are amazing. Because of the swelling and bruising can't say how they will look when they heal, I can see that the wrinkles and bulges are so much better now. From the ... READ 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

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

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
