I have always had heavy eyelids that rested on my eyelashes. I chose Dr. Orseck because of his reputation. Dr. Orseck and his staff clearly explained the procedure and what I could expect post-op. All of my questions were answered and I felt completely at ease walking in to his office on the... READ MORE

I inherited great hair and great big bags from my father. I've been wanting to do something about the bags since my 20's. I turned 48 last month and I decided it was time. I did a lot of research on this site, interviewed Dr. Young, who has a good reputation, and scheduled the date for 7/10. I... READ MORE

Been thinking about this for years, so glad I finally did it. I am almost two months post-op and even the woman who does my facials says she can hardly see the scars. The surgery was performed by local plastic surgeon, in the hospital, under "conscious sedation". It took about 45... READ MORE

I have been reading the many success stories for eyelid surgery on this site, and the few complications, and I am going to go forward with surgery to remove the bags under my eyes. I am 38 yrs. old, and, during my consultation on Wednesday, April 25, 2013, my oculoplastic surgeon, Dr. Paul... READ MORE

My procedure is scheduled for tomorrow and I wanted to add photos and information now so that others might follow along with the surgery and recovery. Müllerectomy is (apparently) done from beneath the eyelid. I have been putting off the surgery for a few years. I am now 62 (soon to be 63) and... READ MORE

Hi, has anyone on here had an endoscopic face lift?? I am desperate for someone to talk to.I'm still in the healing process...week 3. My lower lids look droopy, my cheaks are still a bit swollen but I live in fear of maybe they just took too much away?? My upper lids are a symetrical, which is... READ MORE

Pros- NO visible scars. Canthopexy prevents ectropion. Excess skin removal get rid of wrinkles & smooth out the hollow appearance. Fat reposition filled out the deep tear troughs. Absolutely No pain during or after procedures Cons- Temporary redness, swelling on face & eyes Outcome-... READ MORE

Hey everyone , Ive been reading the reviews on the site for a while and finally decided after a year to have surgery on my lower eyelids. They have always had bags , but now that im older they look worse, so I found a doctor and my date is 7/24. Im still nervous but relieved that i found a... READ MORE

This is the beginning of my journey! I am 57 and like many of you, I am always being told I look tired or mad! One thing I really hate, is that, I cannot wear eye makeup anymore. My lids are so loose that there is a flap that covers my whole eyelid where the eyeshadow would go!! Maddening! I... READ MORE

I had the surgery done because I'm 53 and had some sagging skin-I thought the procedure was safe a pretty risk free. I had terrible swelling, my eyes took weeks to recover and I have developed Ptosis in my right eye. I would never recommend this to ANYONE unless you have a surgeon who is... READ MORE

She removed too much fat on my upper lids and talked me into a premature facelift at age 29! Upper eyelids were unnecessary too. She made me look bug eyed! I can see if she wanted to tighten them a bit but now when I put eyeshadow on it doesn't look right. I have to work extra hard to make it... READ MORE

Five weeks ago I had a lower eyelid fat repositioning procedure done by Dr. Hoenig. I decided to get a consultation with Dr. Hoenig because he is so highly recommended on this website. My intent was to get filler under my eyes to get rid of the bags that were making me look tired all the time.... READ MORE

Hi everyone, I am getting nervous for tuesday although i am sure it will be worth it. I am finally taking the plunge and getting rid of the tired angry look. I am 39 and don't look bad for age apart from the eyes which can be seen in the pics. it has helped to see all the positive experiences... READ MORE

It's the morning of day two. Swelling but very little bruising. My vision is a bit blurry due to the swelling but I have zero pain. I have not taken pain meds since last night and woke up pain free. We'll see how it goes as the day wears on. I did take Arnica before surgery, do not smoke and... READ MORE

I used a Maxillofacial Surgeon - I have permanent vision impairment from the lower blepharoplasty and was left with an awful neck disfigurement that required a revision surgery (performed by a different (board certified) plastic surgeon. My experience leads me to believe that when selecting a... READ MORE

I have been researching upper eyelid surgery for over a year now and am very excited that I am only a week away from having the procedure. I am a 45 yr old single mother of three, work full time, gym it about 3 to 5 times a week in an attempt to get into shape. I am a social drinker non... READ MORE

Concerning cost of this procedure, I am just guessing, since my health insurance actually paid for the whole surgery, but this website form required that I insert a figure. At 66 years old, my upper eyelids were starting to sag down and sort of sit on my eyelash area. See before photos. Little... READ MORE

Over the years I had been noticing the bags under my eyes and skin growing over my eyelids. Both of these factors made one eye look larger than the other. My best feature in high school were my "big" eyes but as I aged my eyes started looking smaller and "tired". I had my surgery one month... READ MORE

I am 43, lost a lot of weight recently and noticed the loss of fat in my face caused my eyelids to sag, orbital area to look gaunt and the act of applying makeup a nightmare while lifting up loose skin folds. I just had these procedures done a few days ago by a well- known surgeon in Cape Town... READ MORE

I had the surgery April 1st in Burbank, CA. I used local, that HURT. Lidocane injected to numb with a drug cocktail to calm me. Surgery was about an hour. Pain was minimal, second- fourth day swelling was like looking at to tiny balloon animals on my eyelids. I'll include pics of the... READ MORE
