Who is a candidate for eyelid surgery?
Aging changes begin around the eyes in the mid-thirties. Most women become candidates for eyelid surgery in their early forties and men about ten years later. A common early complaint in women is wrinkled upper eyelid skin that looks aging and interferes with makeup application. Men also complain of heavy upper eyelids but usually not until much later in life. Both men and women are troubled by bags and circles under the eyes. Sometimes loose or darkened skin contributes to the problem. All of these issues can usually be effectively addressed by surgery.
