Has anyone had one? What did it cost? Are you happy with the results? How I'd you find a surgery? How do you find where to get it done?

Oh, I desperately need one of these. I'm not 40 yet, but my upper eyelid is def on the decline. And I'm lopsided as the right is worse than the left.

Not going to brave surgery though.

blepharoplasty ?

actually,people have these done all the time on the NHS for reasons such as the droopiness of the upper lid actually disturbs their vision,and can affect every day life and driving for instance.Some people have to hold up their lids to see properly!
It is a relatively "simple" procedure for the patient.Under local anaesthetic because a good ophthalmologist will keep checking throughout the surgery both left and right lids are equal.
To have this done for cosmetic reasons obviously you have to pay.
Word of mouth recommendation is the best way. Or lots and lots of research-you really don't wamt a botch job!Or get in touch with an NHS Ophthalmologist and see if they can recommend anyone?
