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.

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)
