Eyelid surgeries remove excess fat and drooping skin from the upper and lower eyelids. These procedures restore a youthful, vibrant appearance by reducing dark under-eye circle, puffiness, and loose, wrinkled skin. The first step toward this type of cosmetic eye surgery is the initial consultation.

Before your consultation, take time to examine before and after photos of eyelid surgeries. Doing this will help you describe to your plastic surgeon how you want your eyelids altered. In turn, the surgeon will be able to better understand your expectations and determine if they can be met realistically. You should also be prepared to discuss your medical history, including previous surgeries, current medications, and past and present medical issues. Some minor risks associated with eyelid surgeries, such as bleeding and infection, can increase if you have thyroid problems, diabetes, high blood pressure, allergies, or other conditions that affect your eyes. Finally, preparing your own questions before a consultation can help you decide whether you want a particular surgeon to perform your procedure. In general, you’ll want to review a surgeon’s educational credentials, Board Certification status, number of years in practice, and total number of eyelid surgeries performed.
