Eyelid surgery candidates

Home Eyelid surgery candidates

Good candidates for eyelid surgery include:

  • Healthy individuals with no medical conditions that can impair healing
  • Non-smokers
  • Individuals with a positive outlook and realistic goals
  • Individuals without serious eye conditions

 

Remember that the eyelids are part of the face. The appearance of a drooping upper lid may also be due to relaxation of the forehead skin and eyebrow. Sometimes stretching out of the upper eyelid muscle may cause a drooping eyelid. This is called eyelid ptosis and requires a different surgical treatment.

Your plastic surgeon will evaluate your facial anatomy thoroughly and will discuss what procedures might best remedy your concerns.
