Am I A Candidate For Eyelid Surgery?
If you are in overall good health, have droopy or baggy eyelids, do not smoke, and have a health attitude about your desired results, you might be an excellent candidate for Eyelid Surgery.
Dr. Rodrigues will remove excess fat deposits from your eyelids and reposition it in areas where needed. He will then tighten your eye muscles and remove excess skin around your eyelids, suture the incisions, and apply sterile dressings.
