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 been self conscious about the bags under my eyes. Every year that passed, they seemed to get worse and more obvious. After reading several reviews on Dr. Wise, I scheduled an appointment for a consultation. He took the time to explain the process to me and answered all of the... READ MORE

After over 20 years of puffy under eye and heavy eye lids i finally had the surgery for upper and lower correction as a 50th birthday present from my husband, it is honestly the best present i have or will ever have, apart from the visible difference i cant believe the weight that has been...

Initially I wanted to have Ptosis surgery on the right eye along with Blepharoplasty to improve my upper eyelids, but after two Doctors told me no because it didn't look that bad, I took that as a sign and only had the eyelids done. I had some pain the day after surgery and had to take a... READ MORE

I had hooded eyelids. I couldn't wear eyeshadow as you really couldn't see it. My eyes looked small and tired most of the time. I saw a consultant and she explained about non surgical blepharoplasty. I was keen to do it. She applied EMLA cream to my eyelids that stayed on for 45 minutes. The... READ MORE

I finally get to the point of writing this review. Tomorrow I will have upper blepharoplasty done by Dr. Darrow under local anesthesia. I didn't prepare as much as I did for my breast augmentation surgery, but I stayed away from ibuprofen and alcohol (I don't drink anyway), and I ate healthy... READ MORE

Don't let the above price fool you.. as for my graves disease orbital decompressions and following upper and lower eye lid surgeries were well worth it and that price includes 4 separate processes for me. Dr. Taban is a genius eye surgeon. Have had a series of surgeries to correct my thyroid... READ MORE

People routinely commented how tired I looked when in fact I had a great nights sleep. My 84 year old mother motivated me to have upper eyelid surgery. She expressed her regret in never having the surgery when she was younger. I witnessed the transformation of several friends eyes post eyelid... READ MORE

Underwent 3 surgical procedures in 3 successive years: may 2012, june 2013 and 2014. promised to complete within 2 years. 1st year was satisfactory, 2nd year became bad, 3rd year was worse. new problems emerged: hyperpigmentation, asymmetry, original crow's feet displaced and replaced by...

I met my cosmetic surgeon Dr. Jane Weston through a friend who was a nurse for her in her surgical room. I started seeing Dr. Weston 12 years ago, and have some liposuction, Botox,fillers and a few small minimally invasive procedures with her. I have been very happy with her and her artistry,...

I always had heavy eyelids which got worse with the years. More than happy with the results. I decided to have local anesthetic and I have to say I did not feel any pain or discomfort during or after the procedure. All healed for a week with no problem. Mr Marando explained everything in...

I met Dr Hochstein when he just was taking over a practice in Hollywood and he always did a great job on my fillers. Then I booked the surgery for the chin implant and lipo. Now this week I have booked an upper lower eyelid at 46 and am very hopeful he will do the same high quality standard and... READ MORE

I have always had bags under my eyes but after losing 100 pounds they became even more pronounced. I originally thought I could get some fillers in my tear trough but Dr. E explained that surgery would give me the most satisfactory outcome. Since I was already planning to have my gallbladder...

Hooded eyes are still manageable with makeup at 55. Not thrilled, but in a world where so many don't have the chance to even grow up, have been determined not to grumble (too much, anyway). Deal breaker was the "can't be bothered to stay fully open" attitude of the left eyelid. Philosophy gave... READ MORE

Surgery scheduled for October 27. So excited!! I've been wanting to do this for a long time. Dr. Silkiss was very personable and professional in my consultation and answered all my questions without hesitation. I am having the surgery under IV sedation at a surgery clinic in Marin County. Her... READ MORE

Once I had healed inused Mederma with sunscreen during the day and... READ MORE

At 52 years old, my eyes were drooping so bad that I often would get comments about how tired I looked. My Irish heredity had a lot to contribute to this condition! I sought the advice of Dr. Geoffrey Kwitko, who was recommended to me by a friend who is in the medical profession. Here is an... READ MORE

I really regret my decision to fly all the way to California to have surgery with Dr. Taban. I read amazing reviews that he was a great surgeon and I was completely swayed. This was the worst decision of my life and now my eyes are left asymmetrical and disfigured. I am trying to warn people so... READ MORE

I'm 54 and I was tired of always being told I looked tired or asked if I was sick. I constantly had bags under my eyes and very heavy top lids. I met with Dr. Schlesinger and he instantly told me he could do a Blepharoplasty with Muscle Sling that would not only help my "eye" issues, but make... READ MORE

I've always had hooded eyelids and started having unsightly wrinkles on upper eyelids in 2010-2011. I've also had congenital ptosis of right eye my whole life, but that will not be focus here. I will be sharing my experience with bilateral upper blepharoplasty at the age of 49. It is now... READ MORE

I am now 52. I came to Dr. Felder 6.5 years ago and have not stopped coming now for injections. My lower and upper lids I entrusted him with and I became a new person I look sooo good. He recommended a few years later Dysport and I have enjoyed looking young. He has been the pioneer in this type... READ MORE
