My motivation for having eyelid surgery was my 50th birthday! The pro's - no more droopy, baggy, saggy eyelids! The con's - there were definitely NO con's! The outcome was AMAZING! You would not believe what it did for my confidence and self esteem! I would highly recommend having the surgery!!!!!! more
I have several friends that are in the same profession as Dr. Shapiro and by far I would recommend him first. He’s an artist with a great touch for a natural look. I had an upper blepharoplasty and fat injections November 18th. I liked what he had to say when we were talking about my eyes. He noticed that my eyes were a certain type before, and he wanted to keep the same look and not change... more
NIGHTMARE! Dr.Pryor burned my left lower eyelid during a quad blepharoplasty using bi-polar forceps with unguarded tip,requiring surgical intervention during the surgery. He excised 1/4" from the lid, there was also a deep tear on the inside he stitched deeply. He didn't inform me of the injury. I complained to his assistant the next day about the extreme pain in my eye even with meds, was... more
As I aged my eyelids were becoming non existent which was a hereditary trait in my family. I looked tired and older than my 58 years, When I made the decision to do it, Since I was new to Arizona I really didn't have a reliable source I could count on for referrals which led me to the internet. I searched for months online and picked Dr Leber as a surgeon to consult with primarily because of... more
As someone who had prematurely hooded eye lids and droopy bags under my eyes from allergies, I could not wait to have the surgery. I was young, only 35, but what a difference! No one I knew at that age had done this surgery, so I was apprehensive because I didn't have a friend to talk me through it. Dr. Parson and his staff did a great job, I am so glad I did it. Since I was doing the eye... more
You can read my background under the SmartLipo review. Although nobody (except one critical ex boyfriend) has ever said anything negative about my eyes, I had two problems with them that I felt needed improvement. First, when I was 20, my (now ex) husband backhanded me and his class ring split open my right upper eyelid and also apparently damaged the underlying structure, as it began to... 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 his before and after photos I browsed through in his office- I saw consistently great and natural... more
I had skin grafting on my eyelid when I was 15. Over time the eyelid began to droop affecting my vision. My eyes no longer were even close to matching. Dr. Hobgood removed the previous scar tissue and turned it sideways to correct the problem. He tightened my other eyelid so that both eyes would now match. more
My eyelids had extra skin which was making me appear older than I really am, not to mention eyeshadow was less noticeable. Now my eyes look GREAT not overdone just re-freshed!!
I hardly had any bruising and was only swollen for a couple of days. The office nurse did a follow up phone call the next day to make sure every thing was going well and took care of any questions I had. It was also... more
I had upper bleph and also lower transconjuctival bleph done. It has only been 16 days post op and I am very happy. My eyes look more alive and open. I have more swelling time ahead of me but everyday gets a little better.
The day after was the hardest, my eyes were almost swollen shut and my tears were tinted red. The first few days are definitely tough (get some audio books!) but once... more
I appreciated the professionalism prior to surgery and post surgery. It was a good experience and I am satisfied with the results. As a 48-year old male working in a profession where image is a huge factor, I chose the upper and lower eyelid surgery. SO HAPPY I DID!
My Dr. is phenomenal! more
I had my eyes done and they look great! In addition to my eyelid surgery, he took fat bags out from under my eyes and gave me a TCA peel. I was happy to find out that I was able to have my procedure done in the office. Initially, I was nervous about being awake for the procedure, but Dr S and Pat ( his nurse) made sure I was comfortable. I fully expected it to hurt. It was surprisingly easy... more
