If you are someone who wants to fix the bags and wrinkles under your eyes, you may be considering an eyelid surgery. Some of the main things to consider before getting this done are listed below:

  1. The surgical procedure is popular as it allows for the removal of excess skin, muscle, and fat from the upper and lower eyelids.

  2. It can make you look younger by rejuvenating your appearance, but you will still look like the same person.

  3. The procedure is long lasting in its results but it will not prevent you from aging.

  4. There may be risks such as changes in skin sensation, dry eyes, and difficulty blinking so it is best to do your research on the doctor.

  5. Recovery can take a couple of weeks as you will have mild pain, swelling, bruising, and possible vision changes.

  6. There are nonsurgical procedures that can also be taken such as dermal fillers and lasers.
