Hi y'all. I'm not sure what I think about this procedure yet. Today is only day 3 post op, and my right eye looks perfect, although more bruised, while my left eye looks like it might have some bumps that weren't there before. However, I suspect appearance will change considerably over the next few days and weeks. This surgery was NOT necessary for me, purely cosmetic, and my decision was... more
I'm a 49 year old professional woman. Every morning I wake up to same challenge of attempting to diminish the impact of the bags under my eyes. No matter what concealer I try or how full coverage my foundation is, there is no way to correct for the shadow cast from the bags under my eyes.
About a year ago, I spoke with the surgeon who did my tummy tuck a year previously. I knew I eventually... more
I'm three days from surgery and nervous. Why? well not because of the actual surgery itself but more for how it will look 3 months from now when my son gets married.

I had fat removed from my stomach and redeposited/transferred to my eye... more

My upper lids were hooded down to the lashes and the lower lids also had excessive skin and some fat bulging. I had the procedures with local anesthetic (lidocaine) and was given 20mg of valium orally about 30 minutes before the surgery. I felt nothing but a little pressure. Honestly, valium... more
Virtually painfree. Easy surgery. Think I will like the results. Dr. made me feel very comfortable and he came highly recommended. I hope to improve the excessive skin on the eylid that was aging me.I just had a bi-lateral upper bleph just 5 days ago to correct sagging skin with one eye a little worse. Healing nicely; however, i am noticing the one eye still has a lot of skin folds. Is it... more
I had upper and lower bleph 2 years ago. I had fat pads under my eyes as well has slight hooding on the upper lid. It has taken 10 years off my appearance. I always looked tired no matter what I did. I did have to have my upper lids repeated 1 year later related to extra skin above one eye. My surgeon is more conservative and would rather have to go back (no charge) and revise than take... more
