Soooo...PLEASED with my surgery done by Dr. Christine Rodgers. Am in my 60's with sunken eye sockets and very dark circles. Another surgeon said there was nothing that could be done for that..it was just genetics and shadows! But, with an eyelid lift, endoscopic forehead lift, fat transfer and laser....DARK CIRCLES under eyes are GONE!!! My eyes are opened up,skin is smooth and look rested... more
I have received excellent results that have truly taken years, have opened up my eyes and I no longer look angry all the time due to my former heavy lids. Recovery has been virtually pain free, little bruising, and a breeze. My incisions are hardly noticeable at two weeks out and will further improve. I love my new eyes. I also had chin and cheek implants performed at the same time and am... more
I was always being told how tired I looked. I had under eye bags and hanging skin on my eye lids. I had both areas done. The under eye bags look much better. The eye lids still have problems.

I know this is all due to the big bags under my eyes, they actually created a shadow that looked like dark circles, imagine my surprise the day I figured out my dark circles were just shadows. I've wanted to do a... more
I had lower lid blepharoplasty eight weeks ago. My bags are gone - hallelujah! There are two slight imperfections, a small visible (scar tissue) lump under my left eye, and a similar bump at the corner of my right eye. Both bumps have gone down significantly since the surgery, but are still quite noticeable to me and my husband. more
I had a lower eyelid bleth a little over six months ago. I did research on the surgery for about 8 months to get all the info I could and to make sure I really really wanted to go thru with it.
I picked a very good doctor (one who had been chosen a few years prior to do Extreme Makeover), who was not the cheapest, but this eye surgery is something you don't want to be "bargain shopping"... more
