My eyelids began "hooding" a few years ago and they were getting progressively worse and making me self-conscious because they made me look really tired all of the time. I decided to get them corrected now, while I am 43, so I could enjoy the results at a younger age rather than waiting until I am in my 50s. Although the first few weeks of healing are tough to deal with (you wonder if you'll... more
To look better, no negative points at all it all went very smoothly. Hardly any pain and the recovery was way faster than I had originally thought it would be. Looks great. Very pleased with it. I have told a number of my friends and colleagues to also go to Dr Sturm if they are considering the surgery as I was so happy with the results. more

Dr. Funk and his staff made me feel at ease from the very first visit. I had lots of fat on my upper lids that needed to be removed. The procedure was a success and I can say I had minimal pain. I had swelling, but after 7 to 10 days it was much better. After removal of the stitches and reduction of the swelling, Dr. Funk then added filler to my lower llds and botox to my crow's feet. Friends... more
I have to say although I'm worried I lived my doctor and wonder if I'm worrying about nothing? This is what lead me to this group. I did act hypersensitive under local and 4mg of Xanax. I woke up toward the end and pain was excruciating feeling the last of the procedure. I felt terrible for stressing the team out after remembering I was begging them to stop! I had uppers and lowers. First fear... more
This is something I've wanted to do since my mid 30s (I'm 47 now). I have quite a few family members on both sides who have droopy eyelids, and by my mid 30s I started seeing the same thing. By my 40s, I didn't look the same in pictures. My eyelids weighed down my eyes so much I couldn't wear makeup, my peripheral vision was being affected, and my lids would even sweat in the Houston heat. It... more

I decided last minute to have a Blepharoplasty procedure done because I started noticing extra skin in my upper and lower eye lids when I was being photographed or when I see myself in the mirror. I felt that I looked older that my actual age due to the extra eyelid skin. Blepharoplasty by Dr Gary Homderski has absolutely fixed the tired and older age look. Is been almost 5 weeks and is... more
The bags under my eyes were way too puffy for my age and I needed a pick me up. This surgery has improved my self esteem and my complexion even looks much better! I've had numerous amounts of compliments on how well Dr. B did! more
I had surgery on July 7th, and today is the 9th. i have swelling and my eyes burn (like when they are really tired) the lasering is the worst part, it is itchy and you have to keep it gooped up with lubricant. more
It's the day after and I feel great! I am 54 years old and my eyelids were so heavy they just sat on my eyelashes! I gave up trying to wear mascara altogether.
The only pain I experienced was a couple hours after the surgery, and I believe it's only because the local anesthesia around the eye area had worn off. Otherwise, I feel great!
I can do pretty much everything I did... more
My girlfriend had upper and lower bleph and canthopexy performed on both eyes 4 weeks ago. She mistakingly, requested to have both eyes performed with canthopexy, when she only needed her left eye fixed. The PS created an incision from her brow to the bottom of her eye (about 2.5 inches long) to take skin up to make room for the unnecessary canthopexy. Now her right eye is slanted.
