Do I need both my upper and lower eyelids done?

Early candidates for upper eyelid surgery frequently do not need their lower eyelids done at the same time. On the other hand, young individuals without upper eyelid aging changes that have hereditary lower eyelid bags and circles will benefit from lower eyelid surgery alone. Older patients usually exhibit aging changes in both the upper and lower eyelids that warrants a combined procedure. Doing one without the other in this setting often makes the untreated area more apparent by comparison afterwards.
