I had a lower blepharoplasty with fat repositioning and fat transfer to the cheek area done by Dr. Massry. The best decision of my life! The results are so natural, no one could ever tell I had surgery.
I had small bags under my eyes and lack of fat in my tear through area and cheeks. This made me appear constantly " tired". Since the surgery, my outside appearance now matches how I feel... more
Where to begin ... I am a complete coward when going under the knife. However, a few months previous I had Dr. Parsa remove a cyst from my upper eyelid and reduce the bags (more like suitcases) under my eyes. I suffer from auto immune disorders and, as such, Dr. Parsa had to be very conservative. I have NEVER been less cowardly and more comfortable. Dr. Parsa is a very caring person and... more
Words can't describe how much i regret having surgery with Dr. Sam Goldberger, every day since the surgery has been a nightmare. Everytime I look in the mirror or see a picture of myself the pain and shock of how different i look is renewed.
I needed a ptosis repair on one eye for mild ptosis. My eyes were already good and I was happy with them besides the ptosis. I was very concerned that... more
I'm counting down the days until I can finally have surgery to get rid of my lower eyelid bags. I have had them since my early 30's and they have gotten worse over the years. I'm so tired of looking tired and I am getting so excited for my upcoming surgery. I am having a lower lid Blepharoplasty with fat repositioning.
I had a consultation with Dr. Jonathan Hoenig in Beverly Hills CA.... 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. During the consult, Dr. H said that filler wouldn't be the best option in my situation because I had... more
I am 54 years old and recently lost 80 lbs. I felt fantastic and energetic but it upset me when people frequently told me that I had huge black bags under my eyes. I had consultations with several plastic surgeons about having upper and lower eyelift surgery and realized that I not only needed upper and lower eyelifts but also surgery to repair ptosis or droopy upper eyelids that were... more
I had marked ptosis on my right eyelid and to a lesser degree on my left. My ophthalmologist said my peripheral vision was impaired and I needed surgery.
The idea of having a procedure done on my face, let alone my eyes, was terrifying to say the least. I am 42 years old! but the daily headaches from lifting my forehead to be able to see while driving were getting too much to handle so i... more
Long story short,
I had a problem with pigmentation below my eyes, which looks like a bluish tint.
I was consulted to have the lower bleph procedure done.
but i found out later, that such operation doesn't treat pigmentation.
i felt like i was lured into something that has no benefit for me, rather destructive for me. more
I wanted an upper bleph to eliminate the eyelid heaviness that plagued me daily; furthermore, the saggy eyelid look had been bothering me for quite some time.
The bruising lasted a good three weeks-but that’s me. Everyone is different. I planned the procedure during the holidays so I would have time to heal before I had to show my face at work. After three weeks, make-up covered... more
As long as I can remember I have had extremely heavy upper eyelids, and they have always bothered me. Eyeshadow was a complete waste of time (and I love make-up so this was always disappointing).
When I was overly tired, the appearance was even worse. My eyes would look like tiny little pellets lost in two giant beach balls!
In June of this year, I went in to have a small cyst removed from... more
Dr. Haworth performed a lower blepharoplasty w/ fat transfer on my eyes 6 days ago, using dissolvable sutures. The incision was made directly under my lower lash line. I have bags under my eyes at age 46 that show up in the morning and later in the afternoon, making me look tired. Deep sockets as well.
I will post pics soon.
Had some continuous bleeding from my left under eye in tear... more
I actually went for a facelift consultation but instead Dr. Hoenig recommended a Ptosis –Repair to get rid of my tired look and he was so right I love the result ! The whole experience was excellent, unstressed and very sympathetic. He is a very patient and highly skilful physician. I had very little pain following and no complications more
It is difficult for me to fully describe my gratitude to Dr. Steinsapir for restoring my eyes, and my faith in the medical profession. Two years ago, I had a very unfortunate blepharoplasty with another surgeon who removed too much skin - leaving me with large eyelid platforms, drooping lids, and hollow, rounded, sad-looking eyes. Each and every time I looked in the mirror, I was heartbroken... more
It was totally worth doing!
I had very little pain following and no complications.
It gave me a lift without people knowing exactly what had been done!
I would definitely do it again! Hopefully not for awhile. The procedure was done in Dr Kim's surgery in Beverly Hills.
I arrived at her office early morning. I was given an injection to numb my eyelids,I felt absolutely nothing... more
I'm considering getting an upper blepharoplasty - my upper eyelid has always tended to droop a bit, and I'd rather get it taken care of now before it gets any worse. I know I'm only 26, but it's something that's been bothering me. Here's what I'd like to know:
1) Am I a candidate? (see photos)
2) How many days would I need to take off work? (e.g., could I take off a Friday and a Monday... more
I had previous eyelid surgery, and the lower eyelid on the outside was extremely droopy. I had dry eyes as well. Dr. Hughes explained that I had some looseness of the lower eyelid that was causing this problem. Dr. Hughes scheduled my surgery in a few days. I am a week out and no bruising and the eyelid is up now and looks much better. Thank you so much, Dr. Hughes. more
As an older woman I really needed to do my upper and lower lids. When I met with Dr. Hughes, he also recommended fat grafting at the same time to my cheeks, tear troughs, nasolabial folds, and marionette lines. The surgery was simple and took about an hour. He took the fat from my abdomen - free liposuction. I was swollen for about one week, but the results were obvious right away. Dr. Hughes... more
With thousands of miles between us, Dr. Massry gave me the comfort and guidance I desperately needed after I experienced the devastating effects of lid retraction and hollowness resulting from a lower blepharoplasty. I was often told my eyes were exotically beautiful, and as a performer/model for most of my life, it was my hope (in a world that puts so much emphasis on beauty) to do what I... more
Surgery to remove embedded eyelash strip at end of right lid junction + refinements to eyes, resulted in more problems with eyes & eyelids, e.g. lids that don't descend fully, an enlarged pupil. W/o my consent, added fat graft strips to under-eye areas, resulting in puffy fat asymmetrical fat lumps.Dr. Robert E. Levine is a caring doctor who is generous with his time, but my surgery with... more
I had an upper blepharoplasty with Dr. Goldberg in 2004, and am preparing to have a revision for scars, excess skin in some areas, and extensive hollowing in others. I have managed to put off additional surgery by having fillers put in the crease of my upper eyelids to disguise the hollowing that resulted after Dr. Goldberg took out too much fat. The fillers have helped but are not permanent,... more
