I am on this site occasionally and appreciate all the reviews from other members. I have finally gotten around to posting this review. I underwent an upper blepharoplasty in November 2013 with Dr. Manolakakis. I first went to Dr. M for Botox a few years prior on a recommendation from a friend who is an OR nurse. She told me "You have to go to Dr. Manolakakis, he does amazing work. He is a... more
I consider myself extremely fortunate to have Dr. Manolis Manolakakis as my surgeon. I chose him because he’s a specialist in maxillofacial surgery and I felt more confident having a doctor who only deals with facial issues. He’s truly amazing, dedicated, takes pride in his work and is completely non judgemental. I had a lower blepharoplasty with a mid-face lift and couldn't be happier... more
I use to have pretty eyes, hope to have a better look and not look tired I have an appointment for the surgery next month, I appreciate every ones experience. I have dry eyes so I am very concerned about this issue. I if my eyes will water more after this surgery then it wouldn't be worth it to have this done, I a=want to wear make up and have nice clear eyes, more
Plastic surgery was procedure that I thought was reserved for Hollywood types and would not be within my reach. I was wrong. The first step to feeling better about my appearance began by making an appointment with Dr. Andrew Miller. I'm not a Hollywood starlet. I've worked in an office my entire career and as I've aged I had grown more and more dissatisfied with my droopy eyelids. The number... more
Tomorrow is the big day! Excited and nervous all rolled into one. Scheduled to be at the Surgery Center at 7:30 a.m. Procedure to begin about 8 and should take about 2 to 2-1/2 hours. Fingers crossed and hoping for the best. I was fortunate enough to have upper eye lid surgery covered by insurance since I was losing peripheral vision. I was tested at the eye center that I go to. ... more
I've always had puffy hooded upper & lower eyelids and large dark undereye circles that leave me looking tired and worn out regardless of amount of sleep, exercise, etc.
My eyes are also rather small and the puffiness makes it look like my eyes are closed or my face is scrunched in most photos. I’m constantly told about how tired I look and after my recent 25th birthday, I’ve felt... more
I am very upset and nervous, I used to have fine eyes and now they look so tired!! I am due back in the office in a week or so for follow up, but in the past 4 weeks my eyes literally looked the same without much improvement.
I used to think it's the swelling and over time it would subside, but it hasn't really and I noticed much darker circles under eyes now. I am not sure if I need to... more
I"m 53 male and had upper/lower eyelid surgery 3 weeks ago. I also had a ptosis corrected in the right eye and a mild ptosis in the left eye untouched.I'm very uncomfortable because my right eye is now open much wider than my left. The dr says that my left is still swollen and it should open up but I can't see it opening to the degree of the right. I would like a professional opinion. ... more
