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 ›

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

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

I would absolutely recommend Dr Shah Desai for any eyelid treatment. From the first time I met her, she took her time in explaining all possible options for my hollow eyelid following ptosis surgery on the NHS. A number of different options were discussed and considered - both surgical and... READ MORE

As I aged my upper eyelids got very heavy. I noticed that my peripheral vision was becoming bad . I saw the eye doctor and they did a visual field test . I failed that. Next I went to a plastic surgeon . She told me blepharoplasty would help that. The insurance covered the upper eye surgery. I... READ MORE

My Lower blepharoplasty resulted in stitches bursting near outside corner of right eye. Doom & gloom after posting my photos here but in fact it healed itself. There are still a couple of indentations, not as aesthetically successful as the other eye but no need for any reconstructive surgery at... READ MORE

I contemplated getting something done to remove and/or the bags and dark circles under my eyes. After several consults, I finally decided to do an upper and lower blepharoplasty. I was told everything from needing only a lower bleph to just use fillers to do the upper/lower bleph plus fat... READ MORE

I had a double blepharoplasty. Yesterday I went back to Dr. Galante for the 3 mo. checkup and he took the "after" photo. Then he showed me the "before" photo. SHOCK!!! Why didn't anyone tell me I was walking around all this time with my eyes half-closed? I looked like the Walking Dead! ... READ MORE

For the last 4/5 years I had become increasingly unhappy about looking so tired all the time. Ironically, the more rested I was the more tired I looked (from lying down for longer, which increased the tired look on top of the fat pads under my eyes). After giving it a lot of thought over the... READ MORE

Dr. Geroulis far exceeded my expectations in revision upper eyelid repair surgery, done by an occuloplastic surgeon years ago. The original surgeon had left me with asymmetry, a lot of scar tissue, extra skin, and fat that should have been removed. It also appeared one eye didn't close all the... READ MORE

When I saw Dr. Lee 4 years ago for my Lifestyle Lift procedure, he was reluctant to perform an eyelid surgery, since I am congenitally blind in one eye. I appreciated his conservative approach and his concern for protecting my vision.My facelift experience was fantastic! I returned to him... READ MORE

Dr Taban fixed my asymmetry due to a previous eyelid surgery and the results are phenomenal. I am very happy. He is kind, personable and takes his time to address your needs. I also had filler and Botox with him and he's even a genius with that! I will continue to see him for future procedures.... READ MORE
