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 ›

Uppers were saggy for 10 years, then the lowers joined them and I looked tired all the time. Thanks to all the people who posted. It was very useful to read about other experiences. Day of surgery was very smooth with attentive nurses. I was out for 2 hours roughly and apart from a thirst I... READ MORE

Doctor Richard Bruneteau MD performed a complete facelift on me. This included a brow lift and eyelid surgery. Everything seemed okay but here it is almost five months later and I'm not happy with the upper lid results. I took pictures of my face beginning with the day of my surgery and every... READ MORE

I had been very concious of my hooded eyelids for over the last 3years. I felt that I couldn't apply the makeup styles I wanted & I also felt I looked very serious and tired all the time. I finally took the plunge and had a consultation with Dr Dunaway on the 15th July 2015. I spent a lot of... READ MORE

After being unhappy with my hooded eyelids for the last 3 years, I have had a consultation for upper eyelid surgery in Harley Street. I was happy with the surgeon I saw and made sure I asked all the questions I needed answering. My procedure is booked in January and although a big part of me... 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

After numerous comments from work colleagues that I looked tired at 59 and working full time. Plus chasing my loose skin around my eye lids, trying to apply eye shadow, I decided to get my families help in making the decision to do something to fix it. My 22 year old daughter was always taking... READ MORE

Waited all my young life for this procedure glad I waited on Gods timing. I have always looked older and tired nothing ever helped. I was interested in Dr. Timothy's because he does not remove the fat but relocates it to a better position and if needed removed excess skin which I needed..... READ MORE

Well, were to start... I have been following so many ladies that have gotten a neck lift and eye lid fix, so I was sure that is what I wanted to do; and the research begun. There are two Dr that I have been impressed by their work here in RS; one is in Costa Rica and the other in NC, both in... READ MORE

Had eye ptosis surgery more than a year ago. The surgery helped with the height of the eye lid, but it still didn't give me any eyelid definition. Unhappy with the experience and want to go for a revision with a skilled "artists"! Ive seen some great results on realself, and would love just to... READ MORE

I first saw Dr. Kapadia for removal of a growth on my lower eyelid. It was a great experience, and he suggested I think about having an eyelid lift in the future. I had thought about it before, as it is a family trait, but thought I would have to be put to sleep and it would be alot of money.... READ MORE

The views expressed here are their own and do not reflect the views of RealSelf, Inc.I went to a consultation today here in Seattle (well, actually Bellevue, which is a suburb). Within the last couple years I've consulted with two other board certified... 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 am 64 and although people say I look good for my age I was feeling like my eyes always looked very worn out and made me look very tired. My eyes used to be one of my best features and they were looking smaller every year and my eyelids were drooping. It was constantly upsetting me. My mother... READ MORE

I've wanted to have my upper eyelids fixed for the last 12 years and either never had the time or the money. I saw several doctors for consults and finally picked Dr. Ellen Mahoney in Westport, CT for a number of reasons. The first, and most important, is that I felt immediately comfortable... READ MORE

Not at all happy with the results yet! The better looking eye has a hole that seems to be staying open as it heals. Stitches were in for less than five days. The other eye seems to have less skin removed and it's purple and puffy. Scars are raised and bumpy. The entire process had been traumatic... READ MORE

My personal blepharoplasty journey has been a long one. Heavy eyelids run on both sides of my family; add years of tanning and my fair share of stress and my eyelids were a mess! I started to notice a difference in the way that my eye makeup looked at around age thirty. By my late thirties I... READ MORE

I will be providing a photo journal of my experience in the Orbital Decompression medical restoration process from the disfigurement that Graves Eye Disease/Graves Disease did to me. I will provide before during and after photos and journalism if there is space to do so. This disease progressed... READ MORE

Ok here goes. I will try and tell you as I have found it with the procedure itself and post op. I had a bleph transconjunctival fat repositioning. I had twighlight sedation. So the anaethatist put a canula in my hand, then the surgeon marked up my face. I was given the anasthetic and to be... READ MORE

Ok...so...this is the first review I have ever written but I wanted to share my experience so that hopefully I can help others in their journey and keep them from making the same mistakes I did. Unfortunately, I had not heard of Realself until after I was botched. But I hope this will at least... READ MORE

Dr Barerra gave me my confidence back. I've had eye bags for as long as I can remember and learned to accept them but this year they had grown so much that when I looked in the mirror all I saw were bags. I met with Dr Barrera on 3/10 and was in surgery on 3/17 (today!) and I couldn't be... READ MORE
