I am very happy with the outcome of my surgery that Dr. Tarola performed on me. Before my surgery the skin around my eyes was impairing my vision and now not only can I see so much better my eyes look so good. Dr. Tarola was very informative as to what to expect after the surgery. He told me that I would look and feel good in about 7-10 days and i did.I had absolutely no problems. I would... more
The only ego issue about having cosmetic surgery is to admit you are old enough to need it.
Every time my wife took my photo, she chided me, "-- open your eyes". Each morning the dark circles and bags under my eyes would stay until i had soaked them thoroughly in the shower. When we stayed up too late, my wife kept asking me, "-- are you falling asleep, --- well then why are your eyes... more
I just had upper eyelid surgery done and I have to admit I was a little scared going in. But Dr. Griffin and his team did an absolute amazing job. I never thought my eyes would look like this again. It has taken years off my look. And it was easy. No pain. No complications. It's beautiful and I am so happy with the procedure and results. Tina does my botox and filler and she too is... more
I had hooded eyes. My vision was somewhat obstructed. My eye lids were constantly twitching from the weight of the lid. I love the after affects. My eye sight is better because my lids are tighter. I am totally satisfied with my outcome. I would not hesitate to recommend that anyone with this issue have the surgery.
The pictures that I posted were just pictures that I had taken... more
Dr. Biesman and his staff, especially Molly, treated me like family from day one. My eye procedure was expert work on Dr. Biesman's behalf. I was obsessing about the wrinkles around my eyes and tried every eye cream under the sun. That was a big mistake - I did irreversible damage..That is until Dr. Biesman fixed everything for me. I know I don't have to tell you ladies-- when you look... more

I would not hesitate to return to Dr. Biesman, should... more
Due to heavy and over grown eye lids, at 60 years of age my field of vision was severely limited. I elected to use Dr. Brian S. Biesman in Nashville, TN for my eyelid surgery and minor brow lift. After only one week I can report that the results have already been dramatic. My field of vision has significantly improved as well as a marked improvement in my overall appearance. I was well... more
What an adventure! I waited a long time for this what I called "my dream". I never knew that this is no less than major surgery (my opinion having full hysterectomy many years ago)
The truth is that my eyes are open and I can admire the pretty green color of my eyes again. The extra skin on each side of my chicks is gone but it has not been easy.
I had my stitches removed in a week, so... more
I had surgery on my uppers and lowers Friday, May 31st. I'm going in to get my stiches removed tomorrow. My upper lids are still very swollen between the incision and my lash line. I'm worried at this point that when I have to return to work in another week that it will be very obvious that I've had something done. I have not told many people, none of my co-workers, and at this point I would... more
This was totally worth it. Dr. Biesman and his staff were totally professional and extremely knowledgeable. I never felt better about my eyesight and appearance since the surgery. I thought the facility and the staff did an excellent job and plan on telling my regular eye doctor, Dr Johnson how much I appreciate the recommendation. Once again this was totally worth it. more

I went through with the procedure and am extremely satisfied with the care of the staff, the surgery center and Dr. Biesman. more
I felt at my age, 51, it was time to start the beauty maintenance with more than just Botox. I asked Dr. Retief what the most aging feature on my face was and she told me my eyes. So, I went for it and did it and i am so happy.
I have seen Dr. Retief over the years for skin exams and Botox. But, recently I had a blepharoplasty (upper eyelid surgery) by Dr. Retief. She did it in the... more
I'm over 55 and had signficant eye bags and loose upper skins on the eyelids...causing me to look tired. I wanted to look the way I feel - energetic and fun.
