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

Plagued by my eye bags for years, and too much upper eyelid skin. Also wanted a revision breast augmentation to go larger and since they were shifting and had the double bubble. 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

I have done lots of different procedures including a smas facelift but having my eyes done for some unknown reason scared me the most ...my vision and all .. I went to see Dr Khoury here Lonetree, Colorado in 2014 and he said I was candidtae for eyelid surgery but thought I could go a little... READ MORE

I had a consultation with Dr Andrew Miller from Associates in plastic surgeries of NJ, to have my heavy bags underneath my eyes removed. His office very nice and clean, his staff is very attentive. I was always told how tired i looked, i could sleep for weeks and i still looked like I've been up... READ MORE

Yes it was worth it but its only been a week and I look amazing but I'm impatient and just want to look totally normal. I love the look and it exciting to look young but also a scary journey of the unknown. I'm still healing and have a little lump that's bugging me but they say it will go. Look... READ MORE

I saw Dr Faizal Anwar at DermaMed for an initial consult with the idea of having blepharoplasty, due to excess skin on my upper eyelids compromising my vision and appearance. What I didn’t know then, that I know now, is that a brow lift would have solved my problem and had a better outcome. He s... 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

At age 40, I've never really had eyelids, but the deterioration of collagen has made the task of seeing difficult. I was raising my eyebrows all the time just to see. I have deep forehead lines as a result. The final straw was when I was cycling and literally could not see the road through my... READ MORE

Consulted with three plastic surgeons and one oculoplastic surgeon. Started this search three years ago. Have been stalking this site for months reading everyone's reviews. Thank you, I t has been very helpful. Had surgery under local in office. Felt comfortable with eye specialist and online... READ MORE

On July 28th I went in for upper eye lid surgery. As you can see from the first picture my eye lids were droopy and one eye lid (the right one) drooped down lower than the left. I have been self conscious of that for so long and I can tell after only six days it is more even now. The Dr.... 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'm a 45 year old woman, and for years I have wanted to have my upper eyelids tightened. I noticed in my Late 30's, the skin on my eyelids had started to crape and sag, causing additional weight to my eyelids. This made wearing eye makeup challenging. My Mom had the same issue. I was referred... READ MORE
