When i reached my late 30's i started noticing loose skin under my eyes.People would tell me i looked tired and i really started feeling like i looked my age! Since the eyes are the window to the soul, i wanted to keep my eyes younger looking. I started researching lower eye lid surgery.I knew it might be a little expensive and a tough recovery with stitches so close to the eyes and black eyes... more
As I have gotten older my eyes have accumulated additional skin, especially on the upper lids. This extra skin overlapped my eyelids to form what I described as "mud flaps". Frequently people would make a comment that I looked very tired or sleepy because of the appearance of this extra skin. In addition, my lowers had formed a puffiness, or bags, that combined with my uppers made me... more
I felt that I looked tired beyond my age; I had a lot of excess skin both above and under my eyes-- heavily genetically predispositioned. I probably would've just accepted it except that I had an INCREDIBLE "go-to" dr in Dr Laurie Casas. Totally naturally refreshed look! Fabulous surgical technique! more
People kept asking me if I was tired because I had large bags under my eyes. I also had excess skin on the upper lids so I couldn't wear any eyeliner or eye shadow either. I just looked tired and worn out! Having this procedure has made me look and feel younger, and the reaction I'm getting form people is so much different now. I also think that Dr. Weinzweig and his team made sure that I was... more
I have had a lifetime of hooded eyelids which really started to plump up and droop in the last five years. I knew this procedure was possibility, but was nervous. Over the past several years I've gone to Dr. Casas for Dysport injections. We discussed the possibility of of eyelid surgery, but I consistently shied away. My 46th birthday is coming down the Ike, and I was tired of always looking... more
The best advice you can give to someone about their face is to find an Expert! It started when I was in my late 40's, I was unhappy when I took photos with family and friends. I realized that I'm not 27 anymore. So I had to do something even if it was just one procedure. I wanted an expert. I researched who is an expert on the face? That doctor would be a Facial Cosmetic Surgeon, a... more
I went to see Dr. Neena Will with my wife who was going to her for a consultation for an issue with her forehead. I was so impressed by Dr. Will, her office, and staff that I started to ask my own questions about my eyelids. Without a blink Dr. Will took care of my wife's issue's then started to ask me about mine. Dr. Will could of had me come back for another consultation, but she didn't! My... more
I am 45 and had extra skin on hoods of eye and extra skin under eye. I was not put under but was given numbing shots and valium. I listened to my IPOD so I wouldn't hear anything. I have to say you have to NOT think about what is actually happening!
I am happy with my results and it's only 1 month after. My lids are numb still on lash line. I LOVE that my eye liner stays on eyelash line now... 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
I was very happy with the results...very pleased with the bedside manner of the staff...Dr. Bloch is very good with recommendations and spending time with you. I planned on doing just a eyelid procedure but the Dr. also recommended a cheek fat implant which turned out to be the best thing ever. My laser peel really helped my complexion. My eyes had bad tear troughs/festoons and they are... more
I had eyelid surgery to improve vision and appearance. My husband had post-abdominal surgery closure by Dr. Casas to avoid deforming abdominal scarring he has observed on other men at the health club shower! 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
My upper and lower eyelids were very 'baggy' and I felt self-conscious about this. I originally was going to have a face lift and my eyes done at the same time, but only had my eyes done and I'm glad I decided to do it this way.The surgery was really easy-it took about 2.5-3 hours under twilight. I was a little groggy afterwards. I never had any pain from the surgery and only took some Tylenol... more
