further allowed her to apply cosmetics as she wished.
There is no such thing as the right age for eyelid blepharoplasty surgery or for any type of cosmetic surgery. Some of our patients are as young as 14 and as old as 100. When considering if you are a candidate for blepharoplasty surgery, you need to decide whether you feel the need to change your appearance. No one should ever convince you to get cosmetic surgery. Ultimately, the decision to have blepharoplasty surgery is a highly personal choice and will depend on your own cosmetic goals.

Using Dr. Prasad’s LITE™ Anesthesia for Plastic Surgery means that the downtime after the procedure is much less than blepharoplasty surgery performed under general anesthesia. In addition, general anesthesia has more attendant risks than local anesthesia, so generally speaking, the SmartLift™ approach is certainly a safer option.
