I didn’t know it would be so easy! – My eyes looked so tired and sad (I am only 36 years old). I saw 3 plastic surgeons to get my options. Only Dr. Gutowski gave me the options of having the procedure in a hospital or in his office procedure suite. He also pointed out that it was not just a cosmetic problem but that my tired eyelids were caused by stretched connective tissue that could be fixed and covered by my insurance. I decide to have the procedure in the hospital and my HMO paid for the eyelid part while I paid for the brow-lift. He did it with me sedated but I only remember him asking me to open and close my eyes. I went home the same day and 5 days later was back to work with some makeup to cover up the bruises. By two weeks I looked years younger and my eyes didn’t make me look tired. I had to take a few days off work but it was a reasonable trade.
