During my consultation I expressed the importance of being discrete about my surgery. I didn't want anyone to know or notice I had my upper lids done. Dr. Jacono assured me I would be picture perfect in 2 to 3 weeks. I only told a few people I was having surgery so I was curious as to what people would say to me that didn't know I was going in. Would they notice? Would they comment? In... more
I had a lower bleph because I didn't like the bags I was getting under my eyes. I always looked tired even though I had plenty of sleep. I now have the whites showing below my iris and I didn't have this issue before. My eyes are misshapen. My outer lower lids are pulled down at the corner and they look like droopy eyes. My eyes look totally different now. I now have scarring below both... more
My procedure involved surgery of both the upper and lower eyelids to reduce the heaviness of the lids and make my eyes look younger. In addition, I had rhinoplasty to flatten a bump at the bridge of my nose and eliminate hooking at the tip. I was delighted with the results. The follow-up care was also excellent. I am thrilled. more
I had an upper and lower blepharplasty. It’s been almost five months, and I get compliments on how well rested I look, all the time. In the past, I always had bags under my eyes that made me look tired. They’re gone! I could not have been happier with the results. more
Last year I had lost about 35 lbs, and coupled with being 56, my face had started to sag. I dreaded looking in the mirror, seeing the tired face looking back at me. I consulted Dr. DeVita, and was sure he could help me look better. I feel confidence in his skill and professionalism. I know I won't look like I did 10 years ago, but I just want to look better than I do now. more
I had both upper and lower lids done on July 20th. The uppers had been covered by insurance ($5000) and I paid $3900 for the lowers. The instructions I had been given told me to use ice for 15-20 minutes per hour and sleep sitting up for the first 48 hours. I was also instructed not to read, watch tv, use a computer or drive for 48 hours. I told my doctor, afterwards, that his instructions... more
I was considering having some face work done, so picking a plastic surgeon had to be one of the most important and crucial decisions that I ever had to make in my life. I work in a women’s center so I have seen various cosmetic surgeries done from different plastic surgeons. My mother and a friend of mine both had their face lifts done by Dr. C, years ago. Both were VERY happy with the... more
I'd had dark circles under my eyes for as long as I can remember, but over the past few years the shadows had gotten worse (I'm 45). I thought it was due to stress and lack of sleep, but even when I was rested I could no longer hide the shadows with concealer, and I felt haggard and unattractive. One day, I looked more closely in the mirror and noticed puffy bags under my eyes. This was a... more
I recently got upper eyelid surgery about 3 1/2 months ago. Over time the swelling decreased but my right eyelid is noticeably higher. My eyelids were not like this before. Surgeons says no eyes are symmetrical but they are at least CLOSE. I feel mine are not and I'm not satisfied. I paid 5,000 dollars and not for this. I am hearing to get a brow lift to fix this...will that correct it? Or... more
I had lower blepharoplasty performed because I had what I thought were "fat bags" under my eyes. I went to a well-known NY plastic surgeon.
After the surgery, I still had the "bags" and also had newly developed wrinkles and apparent asymmetry. I now realize that the "bags" were probably not "fat bags," but malar mounds or... more
