What is the recommended age for an eyelid fold procedure?
The recommended age for an eyelid fold procedure is 12 years and above. There are patients under 12 years of age also who have eyelid fold surgery done, but when the patient is below 12, the procedure tends to become a little more difficult. Therefore, Dr. Kwan recommends it for patients above the age of 12. The majority of patients who have eyelid fold surgery performed are in the age group of late teens to the thirties. Eyelid fold surgery can be done on older patients too, but in such cases it tends to change their appearance. Older patients tend to get used to their appearance for many years, so some may actually desire a change, while others may not. If such patients want to get rid of droopy skin, they may be candidates for an eyelid lift rather than an eyelid fold surgery. These are issues that need to be discussed between the doctor and the patient.
