You can use eyelid surgery to look younger
If you have crow’s feet under the eyes that are too much for BOTOX or fillers, you’re going to need eyelid surgery to look younger. Smaller problems can be dealt with by nonsurgical means, but sometimes you have to get blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, to look younger.
Eyelid surgery to look younger isn’t for everyone. People with blurry vision, dry eye, double vision, diabetes or thyroid problems should avoid it. In the case of upper eyelid surgery, the procedure may involve only the removal of a sliver of skin, or sometimes of a small amount of fatty tissue. Recovery time will depend on how much tissue was removed. Lower eyelid surgery can be performed either by removing the fatty deposits under the eyes, or by lifting them back into place and tightening the tissues that hold them there.

Tell your surgeon about any other medications you are taking, and follow his or her advice on suing them before surgery.
Keep your head elevated while resting, and use cold packs. Take whatever medication your surgeon prescribes in order to reduce the risk of infection and speed the healing process. Also, try to keep your eyes out of the sun. If you must go outside on sunny days, wear
