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 ›

Well... I had the bags under my eyes since teenage years, they seemed to get worse as I got older. One person after another always told me that I look tired, or older than my age... I've saved up for my surgery and finally had it done today. Wasn't as bad as I thought... I had a... READ MORE

I Wanted to improve lowel lid bags and remove under eye wrinkles, which couldn't be treated by Botox. One eye looks excellent from the beginning the other one left me with deep ugly scar. Is there anything could be done to make both look the same? Doctor advised to wait couple more weeks but I... READ MORE

I turned 50 years old last October and felt it was time to update the look a little. My eyes were looking a bit tired and saggy. I also wanted a mini tummy tuck, both which are expensive in Australia so I investigated further afield. Thailand was my choice so I got in touch with one of the... READ MORE

After researching oculoplastic surgeons to repair a sunken eye following a orbital floor fracture I decided on Dr. Taban. I came from Canada to have surgery done with him, I am so thankful I did. My initial trauma was not addressed properly by another doctor and had 9 months of improper healing... READ MORE

After an exhaustive search for a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon to perform both a lower eye lid and an eyebrow lift, I am finally having my surgery tomorrow. I thought I need upper eyelid surgery, but my surgeon recommended, for my particular case, an eyebrow lift in-stead. Before I made my... READ MORE

I am now 9 days post op, it was rough for the first week but results are amazing, worth every bit of pain. Still some swelling and itching of eyes, but I went out the past two night with friends and no one even noticed the swelling and scar. It is remarkable how quickly you go from swollen and...

I estimate that it has been about four months since my revision surgery to my upper right eyelid. I also had a browlift on this side of face. I still have quite a bit of hooding and also puffiness. I do have a more prominent brow bone on this side of my face and was asymmetrical to begin with... READ MORE

Having my eyelids "done" was on my bucket list. I just hated that skin flap. I am more than happy with the procedure I had!! I think Dr. Velargo did an excellent job. At all times I felt very comfortable, never nervous with his abilities. I do highly recommend him for any and all services he... READ MORE

After making excuse after excuse for always looking tired in photographs, I decided to consult with a plastic surgeon about the possibilities of improving my tired looking eyes. My upper eyelids were very heavy with extra skin partially covering my eyes. In addition, my lower eyelids had lost... READ MORE

Dr. Kwitko is one of the most talented, kind, caring, and patient Doctors that I have had that I have had the pleasure to work with after my x-boyfriend decided to bite my eyelid. Dr. Kwitko fixed my eye lids with such care, concern & was so compassionate to my situation as a Domestic... READ MORE

I found Dr Shah and his staff to be very professional, kind and reassuring. The office is very nice, clean and inviting. I especially like the fact that Dr Shah took the time to fully examine me and describe in detail what he would do. I appreciate his genuine concern for me as a patient and... READ MORE

So im finally going ahead with my upper eyelid surgery in 2 weeks time. This is something I never really thought about having done, but a friend who is also a dermatologist said to me "you have such pretty large eyes, the droopiness is making you look tired". Since that moment 4 years ago,... READ MORE

I have worked as a RN in OR for 16 years and know these surgeons well. I witness pre-op, surgery, and post-op. I'd let any of them (and have) perform surgery on me. I chose Dr. Derby, deciding I needed someone who will not retire as I approach my senior years. As years passed, bags and wrinkles... READ MORE

I have wanted this almost my entire adult life, I couldnt wear eye makeup because it was lost in the folds of my eye. Dr Chesnut is amazing in what he can do, such intricate work with such beautiful results. He is the absolute best and would trust his judgement on any procedure. I am so glad I... READ MORE

I've had a droopy left eyelid every since I could remember and I've always hated it with passion. I especially hate how it looks in photos and with makeup. The dropping of the lid causes my eyelid to look smaller and has a completely different shape from my ''good eye''. I don't really notice it... READ MORE

On the early morning of my 53rd birthday, I find myself on a flight south to San Diego, where I will cross the boarder into Tijuana and meet the talented surgeon, Dr Juan Fuentes, whom I hope will turn back time a decade or so for me. I have never been happy with my droopy eyes, even in my youth... READ MORE

Have seen my upper eyelids droop and get wrinkly in last few years and was making me feel old. The skin on my face has gotten much more loose and crepey around the eyes and cheeks. Made an appt with Premiere Cosmetic for upper eye-lid consultation. Dr William J. Welsh suggested I have both upper... READ MORE

I am having my surgery on Friday. I've been researching for a long time and finally found a surgeon who I really like. I've had my pre op appointment and she really made me feel comfortable. I got a little Botox that was included in the costs and I love it. Dr. Christopoulos is really amazing... READ MORE

My eyelids were so heavy that it was an effort to keep my eyes opened wide. I had done Botox and it helped a bit, but with age my lids kept getting worse, so decided to have an eye lift. Interestingly, I didn't even realize how much effort I was putting in to keeping my eyes open until after I... READ MORE

I had surgery Tuesday January 20, 2015 so as I begin this review am at 11 days post op. This experience is just too crazy not to write about it. I can't tell you how many times I looked in the mirror last week and said "What the hell did I do to my face?!" Thankfully I thought to prepare my 12... READ MORE
