Patients may start considering cosmetic eyelid surgery at a young age, such as creating a double fold in Asian blepharoplasty or for those who were born with excess skin or fat. Many patients start considering cosmetic eyelid surgery after age 40.
There isn’t an ideal age for eyelid surgery. Dr. Chaboki evaluates an individual’s anatomy (skin, muscle, fat, bone, etc.) and discusses the patient’s personal preferences (upper eyelid and/or lower eyelid, degree of change, recovery time, etc.). He will then suggest appropriate surgical or nonsurgical procedures based primarily on these 2 factors.
