My lower eyelids had gotten a crepe-y look. I imagined that if a surgeon could simply get rid of the excess skin, it would be exactly what I needed. CO2 laser three years ago for this problem didn't have much effect. I had been advised by a few PS's against the procedure due to risk of making it... READ MORE

I am 27 years old, and decided to get an Upper Blepharoplasty to remove excess skin I have had in my eyelids since childhood. I was already being seen for a revision rhinoplasty, and decided to have my eyelids done at the same time. Today I am 2 weeks post-op and love what I see. I am going to... READ MORE

Didn't like the "heavy" feeling of my lids and the fact that I always looked sad. I had a bilateral upper lid blepharoplasty in November 2011 and couldn't be more pleased with the results! I have hated my droopy eyelids ever since I can remember. The in-office procedure was... READ MORE

I noticed about ten years ago at the age of 27, that I was starting to inherit the family eye bags. Year after year I become more self concious of it and it was starting to limit my life. After working in surgery the past few years and learning about the procedure and getting to know the plastic... READ MORE

It's been about 4 weeks since my surgery. I am 39 yo, I have always had heavy eyelids (genetics), but felt that my eyelids were also sagging and crepey-like. I like the results for the most part. My scars are still pretty pink. I no longer have any bruising which lasted almost 3 weeks. My... READ MORE

I am 26 years old and have hereditary dark circles/bags. I had lower transconjunctival blepharoplasty in the beginning of December 2011. Now over 4 months later the bags are mostly gone, however under certain indoor lighting I have terrible dark marks. I am not sure whether this is bruising or... READ MORE

I am 6 weeks post lower bleph and I have to say I see no improvement, if anything I feel I look worse. My concern pre-op was under eye puffiness which was causing my eye skin to stretch and sag. I saw 2 dermatologists and both said bleph was the only way to go and recommended the same plastic... READ MORE

I have lower eye bags that I want to get rid of. The hot news these days is laser assisted blepharoplasty, but when I read more that approach also requires stitches. What's the deal and why is it so great? More confusion is the issue of "festoons" very eye bags and many people... READ MORE

My upper lids looked like tents hanging on my lashes. My lower eyes were puffy and tired looking and my cheeks had dropped from age. READ MORE

I went into Dr. Tarbets office for a facelift. When i was young, I was really pretty but was hard for me to feel it because I suffered with acne until I reached the age of 50 years old and was very self-conscience of myself. No more acne, and suddenly my face and eyes started to droop. Never... READ MORE

I am in my mid thirties and my lower eye bags had become more pronounced in the last couple of years. I consulted with a few doctors in my area to fix the problem. One doctor suggested fillers, but I didn't want to do the costly and frequent upkeep. The doctor I chose for my surgery... READ MORE

I had upper eyelid surgery on 10/31/11. It's only been a few weeks, so I'm still healing. I wanted to share my experience with people because I notice a lot of posters on here had little to no bruising and my experience was quite different. Some people look great after just 2-3 days... READ MORE

I have a genetic hooded brow. Glad I did it when I did! I was on the fence about doing this - due to the fact you do not want anyone to mess up your face - let alone your eyes! So I was Soooo scared. But I figured I was not getting any younger and I did not want a BIG difference. So... READ MORE

Recovery can be worry some, but less than six months later my eyes are now beautiful! I naturally had eye bags and loose skin from genetics even at age 23. The the worst part about this surgery is recovery, which can be confusing and worrisome, however the end result was great in my case.... READ MORE

The bags under my eyes really started to bother me in my late 40s; they became impossible to hide with makeup. I do a lot of public speaking in my job and was just getting really uncomfortable with how I looked. My eyes were also aging at differnet rates and were noticably different sizes due to... READ MORE

I had considered having this done for many years but never had the courage. I am 52 and had heavy hooding of my right eye and slight hooding of my left. My surgeon offered me the option of having it done under local aneasthetic which saved approx $2,000. After the initial injections around the... READ MORE

I hit 40 and wanted to treat myself. My upper eyelids were hitting my lashes and were puffy and loose. I interviewed several plastic surgeons and chose Dr. Holden because he is not only a specialist for the face but his demeanor and professionalism is second to none. I was very impressed with...

I had a blephoplasty to enhance my face. My eyelids were almost on my eyelashes. I look fresh and the procedure has opened my eye area. My face looks fresh and natural. Thank you Dr. Hertess. My procedure was problem free and my recovery was fast without any side affects. The suture line... READ MORE

I had this done as an afterthought to my rhinoplasty. I've had bags under my eyes since I was a young child. As early as age 11 I started getting the comment that would follow me until I had this surgery "You look so tired, are you sleeping well?". Even a month before the surgery,... READ MORE

I have had a great experience so far! There was virtually no wait time in between my consultation and my surgery date. My surgery was yesterday at 1:30 PM. I had one Vicodin when I got home just in case, but I probably didn't need it. It is now the first day after surgery and I have not... READ MORE
