Don't take the risk

There are no pros to upper eyelid surgery. I was left with a lot of hollowness, scarring in the inner corner of my eyelid and shortage of skin. The cons are that it is a risky procedure, if you don't go to the right doctor, you will be out of luck. Not much can be done for too much fat and skin that has been taken out of your upper eyelids and you will end up looking older from a... READ MORE

Orbital Fat Grafting to Upper Eyelid

The pros are that it may add volume to the upper eyelid. The cons are that it will change your eyelid and you may suffer from lid lag, dry eye syndrome and retraction. I received volume but ended up with all the cons above. So, in my estimation, it was not worth all the problems that are mentioned above. I would not advise it. READ MORE

Vickisue: The same thing happened to me. I had pretty almond eyes and my eyelid surgeon butchered them to the point where I was hollowed out and couldn't close my eyes. I will take a look at Dr. W and see if he can help me. READ COMMENT

I would not risk it. Your eyelids look good now. I had upper eyelid surgery at age 49 and the after effects, i would not wish on my worse enemy. Run don't walk from upper eyelid surgery. I'd give a million dollars to undo what was done... READ COMMENT

I am sorry Connie Rose. I initially went for a consultation for a facelift and was talked into the other procedures. I paid around $10,000 (facelift, browlift, and upper eyelid) to be scarred and not being able to close my left eyelid... READ COMMENT

Do you think it would stretch the upper eyelids? I have very little skin above my eyelid and a scar that makes my left upper eyelid very tight? When I had fat grafting done in that area, it caused ptosis. READ COMMENT

I had facelift, endoscopic browlift and upper eyelid surgery in 2006. If I had it to do over, I would not do it. The price is too high to pay and the risks are just too high. I didn't know it at the time because I saw beautiful results... READ COMMENT
