Q: Is Eyelid Surgery Right for You?
It is very difficult to keep your ears unseen from the outside world. That being said, when you are uncomfortable with your ears, it can be frustrating, embarrassing and even impacts your overall self-esteem. Ear surgery can help a variety of people including children that are teased or embarrassed by their ears as well as adults that are frustrated with how their ears look. In addition, anyone born with a severe ear defect is also a great candidate for ear surgery.
While eyelid surgery has many benefits and is low risk, it still may not be right for everyone. For example, the right candidate for surgery should understand that it is done only to remove bags under the eyes and reduce puffy upper eyelids.

- Consistently tired looking eyes.
- Excess upper eyelid skin.
- Are at least 18 years of age.
- In good physical and mental health.
- Take the risks of surgery into consideration before commitment.
- Have realistic expectations of procedure results.

- Graves’ disease.
- Cardiovascular disease.
- High blood pressure.
- Lack of proper orbital anatomy.
