I met my cosmetic surgeon Dr. Jane Weston through a friend who was a nurse for her in her surgical room. I started seeing Dr. Weston 12 years ago, and have some liposuction, Botox,fillers and a few small minimally invasive procedures with her. I have been very happy with her and her artistry, and decided to jump into upper and lower bleph for my tired eyes. She has been saying for sometime... more
Had saggy upper eye. Some fat lower eye. Some lines lower eye. Just wanted to keep what I had as long as possible while young still, why wait till im 70 to enjoy it? Im 46, had it done, 6 days post op. A little scared. Cant believe I let someone cut on my face. Feel very vain. Its definately not a one week back to work procedure. I would say 2 or 3 and I would assume, I wont feel good about it... more
I looked tired all the time. Looked older than I really am. People were always commenting about my eyes.
I am so happy I did this, now I look fresh and getting lots of compliments, and don't feel so tired.
This clinic was awesome from the first meeting , the operation, the staff the doctor are amazing. more
I cannot speak highly enough of Dr. Korman. I was interested in not only having a standard cosmetic blepharoplasty but asked Dr. Korman about an article I had seen for a migraine treatment done through this same procedure. As a chronic migraine sufferer for over 20 years, I had exhausted ALL medical options including both Eastern and Western, traditional and non-traditional medicine. After... more
I noticed that my upper eyelids had become "hooded" over the last year or so. My eyes naturally go down at the sides but recently it looked as though I were tired all the time. I am one month post surgery-NO scarring, NO change in my appearance other than I look better rested AND I can see a bit better! JUST what I wanted.
Here is a pic of my eyes before (as requested)! The question was... more
In general, I was having a difficult time finding a skilled surgeon in the Bay area to do my blepharoplasty, which was necessary for medical conditions. For example, the surgeon that I found at a well known institute had not done it on someone my age before and only did the surgery once a month. I was being very specific in what I was looking for - not only did I want my medical condition... more
I consulted with Dr. Lynn Chiu-Collins and two other well respected surgeons when I was looking for a solution to my increasingly puffy lower eyelids. Dr. Lynn Chiu-Collins far surpassed her competition by taking the time to explain the causes of my condition and the possible solutions. Her level of expertise, amount of experience, and sensibility made me very comfortable and it was an easy... more
My surgery (Upper Bleph) is scheduled for this coming Friday 06/20/14 and I'm starting to have "cold feet". Is this normal? I did my research and trust the doctor. But after reading some of the reviews on this site, my main concern is the healing of the scars... Any advice will be really appreciated... or just to know there are other people in the similar situation.... more
I cannot speak highly enough of Dr Ransom and Dee Roby! Simply the best surgery experience I could have hoped for! I'm 47 and my upper eyelids had becoming increasingly heavier since I was 40. I spent a couple of years seeing different surgeons, having consultations and researching their backgrounds and checking reviews. No doubt some of them were great surgeons but I never felt the immediate... more
LOVE my results from Dr. Ransom. I had wanted an upper bleph for a long time (droopy lids run in my family), and I was immediately comfortable with Dr Ransom.
Definitely worthwhile, and I am very pleased with the outcome.
I chose Dr Ransom because of great results from his past patients, and his strong academic background. more

I recently underwent upper eyelid surgery with Dr. Silkiss. I am totally thrilled with the results. Dr. Silkiss is intelligent, talented and thoughtful. Every aspect of the process was efficient and professional. I look 10 years younger. I would recommend Dr. Silkiss to anyone interested in using the best eyelid surgeon! more
I called Dr. Vistnes because my left eyelid sagged and my right eyelid was starting to and I was going to turn 50 in a few months. The staff at Dr. Vistnes' office is very professional and friendly. The procedure was one hour and you'll need someone to drive you home. Great after care and check ups. It was painless and all turned out perfect! more
Upper and lower eyelid surgery done along with mini face lift and neck lift.
I am in my 5th week of recovery and am feeling a little tired and numb in my jaw and neck. My eyes are fully healed and my scars behind my ears are still healing. Overall I feel better each day and am seeing very good results. more
I have battled with Graves Disease for the past 2 years. It has completely destroyed my self confidence. I would not wish this disease on my worse enemy. I've noticed over the last 2 years that there really isn't a lot of testimony or bloggers on the internet detailing their experience with Graves. So I've decided to use this forum to due just that. To make a very long story short, my eyes... more
I saw Dr. Suess at the San Ramon location for Lifestyle Lift. This should have put me on alert that he did not have enough business from his San Francisco private practice that he needed to work through another corporation (Lifestyle Lift) that could get him clients.
For $2,200, Dr. Suess robbed me of my youthful eyes that did not have a single wrinkle. There was the most minor spots of... more
I'm a young Asian woman who wanted to have a more oval face and more symmetric upper eyelid folds. There are no specialists in Canada with Dr. Lay's experience.he was kind enough to write back to me over e-mail and discuss things over face time. After traveling to California for my surgery I felt nervous at first but then Dr. Lay and his staff made me feel very comfortable. The procedure went... more
Sagging eyes are a family trait, so after having had a lower blepharoplasty 10 years ago at age 30 outside of the US, it was now time for the upper blepharoplasty.
I did my homework researching options in the San Francisco Bay area, and chose Dr. Rajagopal for her experience, convenient location and reasonable pricing.
The whole process was a pleasure, from the initial complementary... more
I went to see Dr. Hessler because I feel like I've always had a "mean" look about me and I just wanted to see what a brow lift entailed. That said, I had never had any procedures before so I was really wary of doing something really drastic right away ... and Dr. Hessler was really understanding and helpful. She provided a few options - one was Ultherapy and the other was an upper bleph. I was... more
