In a society obsessed with youth, the popularity of eyelid surgery continues to surge. It has doubled among people 65 and older in the past two decades. Cultural changes such as longer life expectancy and people remaining in the workforce longer have caused many to combat signs of aging and look the way they feel. Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, was the fourth most popular cosmetic surgery in 2016, according to the 2017 Plastic Surgery Statistics Report. The procedure received a 94 percent “Worth It” rating on Realself, with many celebrating more youthful, bright eyes.
