I’m 53, female, and I’m interested in eyelid surgery to help refresh my face without a face lift. I want to retain all of my ocular function. Since the surgery sometimes involves the removal of muscle around the eyes, can eyelid surgery make it harder to look in some directions?
Cosmetic eyelid surgery should never involve removal of muscle around the eye. In fact, our intention is to leave the muscles of the eye entirely alone to prevent any potential for post-operative weakness or double vision.
