Really any age can be a good time for eyelid surgery. Some patients complain of lower eyelid puffiness or extra upper eyelid skin from their teenage years. The eyes tend to be the first spot where we notice aging so eyelid surgery is common for patients in their 30s and 40s. Since eyelid surgery produces such a natural and refreshed look, it’s also a great choice for the older patient who wants a subtle rejuvenation without undergoing a lot of surgery.
A good rule of thumb for people who wear makeup: When your upper lid eyeliner is rubbing off on your upper lid and turning into eyeshadow… it might be time to consider an upper Blepharoplasty.
