Be careful about overdoing your eyelids. Some people think they want every speck of extra skin removed, but it can't be put back if too much is taken, so a little should be left behind to be on the safe side. And leaving a little skin will make you look more natural. Most "blephs" are done with you awake but groggy. Afterward, you'll look like you went three rounds with Ali. It takes nearly two weeks to look good again, but your eyes should sparkle.
If you have dry eyes or very loose lower lids, you're at high risk for the complication called an "ectropion" if you have your lids lifted, leaving you resembling a basset hound. To avoid this complication, your lower lids might need a tightening procedure called a canthopexy (no clever marketing surgeon has come up with a catchy name for this one) along with skin and fat removal. Don't let the 1-in-10,000 chance of blindness from this surgery scare you away; a good surgeon who also properly evaluates your medical issues should be able steer you clear of problems.
