I am so disappointed. Almost 6 weeks ago, I had fat repositioning on lower eyes and I look older and hollow. I can still see a fat bulge under my right eye and the skin underneath my eye either has discoloration or bruising. I was thinking I would be further along at this point, because of other photos and reviews I've seen on here and other sites. I'm so discouraged and depressed. My doctor... more
I regained my confidence by having confidence in Dr. Frank and his staff. They provided me with the highest level of care and concern before, during, and after my procedure. The final results of my transformation were much more than I anticipated. I am so happy to have had this positive experience. more
Over the years I had been noticing the bags under my eyes and skin growing over my eyelids. Both of these factors made one eye look larger than the other. My best feature in high school were my "big" eyes but as I aged my eyes started looking smaller and "tired". I had my surgery one month ago this week. I love the results! I have my "big" eyes back. My husband loves the results also. I... more
My upper eyelids were drooping mostly because of genetics but were worse with age. Because I am relatively young, I wanted a conservative result and this is exactly what I got. It's an improvement but it is subtle, not "obvious". I am really happy with the result and the pre and post surgery experiences were all positive. In my before photo, you can see how the eyelid is resting on my... more
I am a middle aged male who had droopy eyelids. I had considered having eyelid surgery for a couple years. I am really pleased with the outcome. The recovery time was relatively short. The first week was mild pain. No exercise for 2 weeks. After that you an resume moderate exercise although, I notices slight swelling after exercise. After 6 months I have seen a noticeable difference. ... more
Do not be fooled by Dr. Cohen's advertising. He is an opthomologist, not a board certified cosmetic surgeon. My lids had drooped to the point they were impairing my field of vision, a situation where the surgery would have been covered by my medical insurance. Dr. Cohen claimed to be an expert in the procedure required to lift my lids. The results of the surgery performed on me would belie... more
My surgery took place on January 28, 2013. It was Upper and Lower Blepharoplasty, Active FX laser and Fat Transfer. I was referred to him by a friend. I think it was experience and his recommendations from people that I knew that drew me in. He is a great listener and you know exactly what you're going to get. His staff is very attentive, very professional and very experienced both... more
I am hoping someone else out there found a skilled oculoplastic surgeon who corrected the same problem I have. The cosmetic surgeon I went to did an upper lid blepharoplasty and destroyed my eye shape, which was a large almond shape by removing TOO MUCH SKIN AND MUSCLE from my upper lids. One eye is so bad I cant close it. My eyes are uneven, with saggy corners and smaller eyelids,
I have suffered from a drooping left eye for years. As it runs in the family, I only have to look at my mom to see what I will look like in the future. I had both eyes done at Central Dupage Hospital where the care was excellent as well. I followed his detailed pre and post proceedure directions and had very little bruzing or pain. I did work at home for a couple of weeks and then was able to... more
I'm 44 and my upper lids were starting to droop and my lower lids were starting to sag down a little exposing too much of the lower whites of my eyes, making me look sad, old and tired. I wasn't ready to get a full face lift, fixing the eyes is the next best thing. I'm thrilled with the results! I highly recommend this procedure. Regarding my surgery, for those considering quad bleph, Geldner... more
I'm a 46yo professional man. I am in decent shape, and I still look pretty young, but I had developed really bad bags under my eyes. In my case it was hereditary. My father had them. I was frequently told by friends and coworkers that "You look tired." I hated hearing that. I wasn't tired. But I looked like it.
After reading about the different kinds of surgery options... more
His nurse, pushed this procedure along with a lower facelift (which left a small horseshoe scar in the right temple) so I could wear eyeshadow. I did not ask originally for an upper blepharoptosis. His nurse pushed it.
He cut my left eye lid too high, it cannot be revised as the eye may not be able to close leading to blindness. He said both eyes measured... more
I inherited bags under my eyes which made the appearance of dark circles as well. Sometime in my late 40's I also had a drooping forhead which made my eyes look even smaller. I think there is a misconception that a face lift fixes your whole face. Truth is, the face requires many separate types of surgery to be wholly rejuvenated.
While I had a face lift, I had a brow lift which helped my... more
2 weeks ago i had a upper and lower eye lift, as well as a brow lift.My left eye was much more swollen and seems to be taking longer to heal. my lower eye surgery was when the DR put green lenses in my eye and scooped and enjected my own fat through the inside of the lower lids after 2 weeks all seems to be going well bur my right eye is more open and i noticed that more
