What Exactly Do You Want from Eyelid Surgery?

image-botoxWhether it’s removing excess, droopy skin in the upper eyelids or repositioning fat in the lower eyelids, eyelid surgery can provide dramatic outcomes. Additionally, new techniques in eyelid surgery have made it possible for the procedure to be performed quickly and achieve natural-looking outcomes in the process.

Deciding what you want

It can be difficult for patients to figure out what they want from eyelid surgery. Should they opt for upper eyelid rejuvenation? Or is fat repositioning in the lower eyelids more appropriate to restore youthful vibrancy? How about doing both?

Keep in mind that eyelid surgery is a way to bring back your eyes’ youthful luster rather than a panacea, erasing all visible signs of aging around your eyes.


Generally, you are an ideal candidate for eyelid surgery if you have the following specific concerns:

  • Extreme hooding of the upper eyelids
  • Puffiness or under eye bags
  • Wrinkling around the eye area due to muscle atrophy


Other things to consider before eyelid surgery

Anyone considering eyelid surgery should be generally healthy and free from certain disease conditions that can possibly affect surgical outcomes. These conditions include, but are not limited to, hypertension, thyroid problems, diabetes, glaucoma, and dry eye syndrome.
