Eyelid surgery has been performed thousands of times on individuals all around the world. In most cases, this surgery is used for cosmetic reasons. As a person gets older, they begin to develop saggy skin around and under their eyes. At our office in Boston eyelid surgery is offered because it is designed to get rid of this sagging skin and help a person enjoy a more youthful appearance.

If you are thinking about having eyelid surgery performed for cosmetic reasons, you may want to consider the extent of surgery you’d like to undergo. This procedure is performed on both the upper and lower eyelid. Depending on your particular circumstances, you may be able to get the best results with upper eyelid surgery, lower eyelid surgery, or both.

Something that you should consider is how much your sagging eyelids are affecting the way you feel about yourself as well as the way others see you. Typically, when a person does not feel satisfied with their appearance, this usually leads them to feel bad about themselves. If you feel like your sagging eyelids are stopping you from living your life to the fullest, eyelid surgery may be right for you. You also may be an ideal candidate for this treatment if you feel like sagging, heavy eyelids are stopping you from getting ahead in life by impacting the way that other people see you.

You never want to have cosmetic surgery done in order to please others. However, there is a definite connection between how others perceive you and the opportunities you have in life. For example, if your eyelids are making you look tired and worn out, your boss may not consider you for a promotion because he thinks that you already have too much on your shoulders. The truth of the matter may be that you are ready to take on new responsibilities, but your appearance is making you look much different than the way you feel.
