Is eyelid surgery worth the trouble?

Depends on you. Worth is dependent on the value this particular procedure has to you. The price is dependent upon the complexity and time it takes to complete the procedure, anesthesia, and the facility fee. It involves a certain amount of staff, consumed items, and the maintenance of equipment. It also involves the training and experience of that surgeon. Only you can decide if that is worth it to you.
Absolutely! The benefit is usually quite impressive. The downtime is fairly brief. Often the result gives the impression that one appears much more youthful and energized.
Yes. Eyelid surgery is very rewarding for those who have extra skin and fat on the lids. The eye(lids) are the central focus of the face when someone is looking you. Having a bright and wide awake appearance goes a along way.

Upper lid lift. When used for the upper eyelids, this is generally a procedure with a high degree of satisfaction and realtively low rate of complications for isolated dermatochalasis without borw ptosis.
Nearly always. As dr. Agullo correctly states, this is a very personal decision. However, when done to improve peripheral vision, it is very much "worth the trouble!" because we look at each other's eyes when we converse, rejuvenating the eye area can really improve how we appear to others and decrease the "are you tired?" and "are you mad?" questions that people with excess eyelid skin get all the time.
Yes-not much trouble. Blepharoplasty (eyelid rejuvenation) is typically done under local anesthesia without any hospitalization and with minimal postoperative pain or discomfort. With good postop care, there isn't too much bruising or swelling, and the recovery is generally very easy. The surgery can improve your appearance to rejuvenate the face in a subtle but very noticible fashion.
Yes. Eyes are center of the face. We judge people's age of state of tiredness by the way their eyes look. Therefor eyelid surgery can drastically give youth and freshness to the face with relatively simple procedures.
Yes. Many people feel self conscious or "tired" appearing which effects many aspects of life (work and social). The eyes are a prominent feature when meeting people, and excess skin, muscle ridges or large bags suggests aging or tiredness. It is a personal decision, driven by whether you feel it makes your features unattractive or if you have excessive hooding restricting your visual fields.
Depends. Cosmetic surgery is a very personal decision. Only you can answer that question for yourself. If you are considering having cosmetic surgery, i recommend scheduling an appointment with a board certified plastic surgeon. They will be able to discuss your personal concerns and recommend a treatment plan that is best for you.
