I'd like for my upper lids to look contoured & youthful, I would like to be able to wear eyeshadow again that doesn't look like colored crepe paper. I'm hoping for a fresh look with enough skin & fat removed so that my eyes appear more open & beautiful. My eyes were once my best feature & I'm excited to have that look back. Everyone at my doctors office are always caring & helpful.
I have been wanting this fixed for a long time. I feel my body & face look young for my age but my eyes but my eyes ruin this. I had been told over a year ago that my brows are low. This year it's worse & it's awful applying eyeshadow to wrinkled eyelids. I always look tired or down. I'm expecting a rejuvenated look & hopefully nice eyelid area & raised brow. I'm having a brow lift & dr... more
Lower eye blepharopisty performed May/2013. I was told by the plastic surgeon that I have great skin so he would only have to remove the fat from both eye lid with no skin removal. Fast forward to Nov/2013 at my follow up visit I complained their was still bags under my eyes. So the surgeon suggested a second surgery to remove little skin from both eyes costing me an additional $400.00. ... more
I used a Maxillofacial Surgeon - I have permanent vision impairment from the lower blepharoplasty and was left with an awful neck disfigurement that required a revision surgery (performed by a different (board certified) plastic surgeon. My experience leads me to believe that when selecting a surgeon these steps should be employed:
1. Consider ONLY a board certified plastic surgeon.
2. Ask... more
The reason I decided to have lower lid eye surgery was I constantly was told by family & friends that I looked tired. No matter how many hours of sleep I had I never looked fully rested. I wanted to look more refreshed and younger. My experience & surgical procedure could not have been better. After having my procedure & had fully recovered (which was very easy) seeing my family members... more
I went to a DR (cannot mention name) for undereye lift. They did a terrible job. My eyes were bunched up, pulling and in pain. That DR. tried to fix them and made them worse. My under lid drooped and couldnt close fully. It was at that time, a horrible nightmare for me.
After being depressed for a year, I had a consultation with Dr. Briggs Cook. He said he could fixed my eyes. Now my eyes... more
So glad i found this post. i had under eyelid surgery last july for bags under my eyes. My fiance paid for it because he wanted to do something nice for me since i had been sick for a while. The doctor reassured me that nothing would go wrong and i asked him if there was a chance he could take too much fat out. He said that has never happened before and i would be fine. A week after my surgery... more
I went to Dr. Ferrari for a refreshed, younger look. I exercise, eat well and maintain an ideal weight, however, there was not much I could do for the wrinkles and creeping upper eye lids I was developing. My face did not match my image and active lifestyle I have. I wanted a natural result, not like some of the Hollywood stars you see today that is so obvious they had some work done. I just... more
I decided to have this procedure done because of the physical discomfort I was experiencing due to the extra eyelid skin. It felt like someone was pulling down on the inside of my eye balls. It a absolutely fixed the physical feeling and I have so much relief now. Also, I look great! I have had people tell me I don't look tired or depressed anymore. Some people cant tell what I had done but... more
I had a lower facelift and upper and lower eyelid surgery five weeks ago. My lower lids are drooping showing an excessive amount of white under the irises of my eyes, particularly in the right eye.I had a lot of swelling in my face from the lift and my surgeon said the drooping was due to the swelling pulling down on the lids. He reinforced the lower lid with a stitch in the out corner of... more
