I decided to get this done because my eyelid skin was pushing my eye lashes downward. This drove me crazy because each time I blinked my eyes, the lashes would poke me in the eye ball. I decided to not go under for the surgery. They told me it would take about an hour for both eyes so I did it with a "local". I was amazed at how easy that was.
Although I looked like I'd been in a fight for three weeks, I felt fine. I don't remember being in enough pain to even take asprin. I would do this all over again, in a heart beat. I am very pleased with the results.
