At nearly 55 yrs. old, I was tired of being told and looking like I hadn't sleep in days and decided it was time for both upper and lower eyelid surgery. The surgery went seamlessly as planned and afterwards I had minimal swelling and bruising. Although prescribed, no pain meds were needed, only ice packs for the 1st two days. After just 3 days I saw the amazing results of the upper eyelids.... more
Getting excited about my surgery scheduled for April 3. Im 49 and my eyes look so tired. I feel young and I'd like to look younger and not so tired. Doctor says my lower eyelids are worse than my uppers. My upper lids have become more and more hooded as I age. I'm eating right, drinking lots of water and taking my vitamins. Three days prior to surgery I will start taking arnica montana... more
I had my consoltation appointment on Thursday Feb. 13, the office is very inviting and the girls behind the counter Lori and Cassey were so welcoming and caring. Dr. Miller was right on schedule, no waiting! He spent a lot of time with me going over the proceedure in detail and answered all my concerns and questions. I explained I wanted to do the surgery quick before I went back to work, he... 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 was born with very droopy eyes. My entire life I always had people asking me " whats wrong? " Why are you sad?" when I put eyeliner on it would smudge all over and the fat packets above my eyelids even FELT heavy. The droopy eyelids caused shadowing around my eyes and i had to use TONS of concealer all of the time. I would get done up and after all my clothes and make up and hair , my eyes... more
I had my lower eyelid surgery 5 weeks ago and I don't see any improvement. It's even worst than before the surgery. I know it takes time to heal and smooth out, but I don't get it why my eye bags are swollen and darker? My doctor told me Asian heal slower and that I should wait another 1 month to see results. Everyday I wake up and I see the same thing. My eye bags are not even flat!... more
Dr. Elam, and his staff are WONDERFUL; I was a little intimidated when I first came in because the office was so posh and the staff so gorgeous. However, they couldn't have been nicer. Dr. is an angel and Jody especially rocks!
I got a lower bleph for some eye bags as well as a brow lift. Now the brow lift part was a bit unsettling because of the clips and hardware all over my forehead. It... more
For years I have wanted to do a little something about the puffiness under my eyes, a feature that has made it's way through each generation of my family. Being a mom, wife, and career professional I could not afford a lot of downtime. Taking Dr. Grover's advice, lower lid blepharoplasty was the procedure I decided on. Dr. Grover mentioned the possibility of minor upper lid revision as well,... more
I want to look younger for my age I am in my early 40's and I saw testimonials on youtube, but now I believe those are fake. It is like celebrities endorses products that they don't use and all good reviews about this doctor is written by himself or his close relatives. Now I know why he is cheap in price and offers low interest financing.
He worked on my upper eyelids, lower... more
I had my eyelids done, a mini facelift and a rhinoplasty. Dr. Elam made me look very natural; no deer in the headlights or cookie cutter nose. No one believes that I am almost 50 and NO ONE believes I've had work done. I carry me before pictures with me to prove it. Dr. Elam made me look very natural; just like me only BETTER! I have referred at least 10 friends who have had various... more
My right eye was a little lazy to begin with so while considering eyelid surgery for my drooping lids, I asked the surgeon if he could correct the lazy one at the same time. He said yes, he could 'improve' it. I told him that if he could correct it, that would be great, but if he couldn't, at least don't emphasize it. Well, he did just that. Not sure if he get confused but he... more
When putting on eye make-up I felt that most of my eyelid was hidden under the small fold of excess skin. I wanted my somewhat small eyes to appear a little bigger. I thought that a less droopy upper eyelid would give me a younger and more rested appearance.
A few months ago I decided to have a second stage fat transfer to add some fullness to my face since many people tell me I am too... more
I had upper and lower eyelid surgery. After four months, there is a scar on the end of one eye, the discoloration has not gone away from the upper lids, the suture scars have lumps, there is a 'pocket' under one eye now, the skin in the center of my eyes was pulled down to create a freakish look, my eyelids still hurt, and I don’t look like the person I was BEFORE droopy eyelids!... more
I had a tremendous amount of fat under my eyes. I always looked so very tired and avoided family photos and such.After talking with 3 different doctors, I chose one I felt good about and had a lower lid transconjunctival blepharoplaty 4 days ago. I have only moderate swelling and no bruising.I am very happy with the results so far. I highly recommend researching the process, talking with a... more
My treatment so far looks okay. I need to be patient. The operation itself wasn't painful, and neither is the recovery. The Dr. did have me take an over the counter herb that really stoped the brusing.I had lower eyelid surgery done 3 weeks ago. My left eye waters (like I am crying) all of the time, and it looks like the disovling stiches are still there. The Dr. says they will disolve, but... more
I had upper and lower eyelid surgery and a bump removed from my nose. I would not do it again. I have not been happy with the results. The procedure and recovery were ok, but the result (after 6 months) is not what I anticipated. It did not improve my appearance; I believe it made me look worse.I had upper and lower eyelid surgey and it changed the shape of my eyes, and they often look... more
I had upper and lower Bleph. ten years ago and felt great about it ever since. I was looking tired all of the time and I was self conscious because of the bags under my eyes and my upper eye lids were droopy. I think that I looked older than my natural years but every since, I have felt like I look much more relaxed and even younger! more
