Charisse underwent surgery on her eyelids when she was 18.

Her younger sister Christel followed suit when she turned 14 two years ago, reports English.news.cn.

"I was not too worried about any medical risks because I know that it is a simple procedure. Seeing my sister go through it also made me less frightened," said the younger sister.
