My eyelids were drooping to the point it was affecting my vision, so it was time to do something about it. When I met with Dr. Serleth about correcting this, we also talked about the creases on my forehead resulting from always trying to open my eyes wider, and I asked about the bags under my eyes. He explained that although insurance covers the corrective procedure on my eyelids to improve my vision, it wouldn’t cover any strictly cosmetic procedures. However, because I’d already be under anesthesia, it would cost less to have these other things done at the same time rather than as a separate procedure later.

Dr. Serleth was very thorough in explaining everything, and he did measurements several times because he wanted the results to look natural.

I’m very pleased with the results, and I’m surprised at how much brighter things seem to be. It’s now easier for me to see at night, and my eyes don’t feel as tired because I’m not trying to hold them open so wide. Some people have commented that my eyes look bigger—and now, I can even see my eyelashes!
