Marilyn Leisz, in an after math of a cosmetic surgery involving her eyelids and Blepharoplasty, sued her cosmetic surgeon as she is now incapable of closing her eyes. Yes, the complication had risen after the surgery, so the surgery is said to be the culprit of it all.
But then Leisz has been known to already have two other past eye procedures which might have contribute to the problem, it isn’t the current surgery alone.
The likes of Leisz and many other men and women all around the world has been the victims of surgery, overdone. A single Blepharoplasty won’t be hurting you, but once when obsession and overdoing gets in, everything will become complicated.

The surgery is the medical term that keeps your lower lid from sagging. It also removes excess skin and excess fat that accumulates under it. Most often many tries to undergone the procedure to avoid the look of looking tired al the time.
Sagging with under eyelid is common. But sometimes it may interfere with some social goals you have and may be undermining your confidence too.
