I decided to have eyelid surgery because people always said I looked tired or mad. Plus it started to effect my vision. I was amazed at the difference the difference. I was very pleased with the procedure. I will post before pictures and pictures 2 weeks after surgery. The procedure was done it the doctors clinic and required no overnight stay. I can't believe I stressed about it and waited so... more
My Ophthalmologist did a series of test on both my eyes and determined that my vision is being affected especially my peripheral vision. I work as a hairstylist and am unable to wear a contact in my right eye because of the lid"droop." One of my clients even asked me if I had had a stroke. That hurt!

I had a canthopexy from Dr. Neurohr. He had done a canthopexy on me about 10 years ago so I just assumed this one would go well also. The result has been disastrous: scar tissue pulled both my eyes down much lower than they were before. You can see and feel the scar tissue on the exterior of my lower eyelids. Initially, one of my eyes was actually hanging open on one end. I am totally not... more

I started noticing that I was looking older in the mirror even though I didn't feel old. I really did not like the bags that were under my eyes. I thought they made me look really tired and worn out. I even had friends ask me if I had slept well even though I was feeling great. My dermatologist even injected Restylane under my eyes but it didn't seem to work so she referred me to Dr. Verret... more

I had a lower lid Blepharoplasty and a standard endoscopic Browlift in June 2012. I had dark bags under my eyes that made me look tired all the time and makeup would not help cover them. I talked to Dr. Rumalla at least twice before I scheduled my surgery. Dr. Rumalla was very supportive and listened to my expectations and fears. I really just wanted to look rested and yes, look a little... more
I went to Dr. Bogdan because I was tired of looking tired all the time. I am 38 years old, but my upper eyelids had so much extra skin that I looked tired in all of my photos. I tried botox, thermage and was looking into fraxel. Dr. Bogdan explained that the best way to achieve my goal is to remove the skin. I wanted a conservative look where people would think that I looked refreshed and... more
Hello Everyone! The reason I decided to have this procedure done is due to the hooding of my eyelids. I have been pondering this decision for the last 2 years and finally gave in since my eyes have been really bothering this year and luckily I have found a great doctor to perform this procedure thanks to a fellow member of this forum. My experience with my plastic surgeon has been very... more
Recovery can be worry some, but less than six months later my eyes are now beautiful! I naturally had eye bags and loose skin from genetics even at age 23. The the worst part about this surgery is recovery, which can be confusing and worrisome, however the end result was great in my case. Because of my age I healed faster than most who had this surgery.
I had a full blown upper and lower... more
I have had a great experience so far! There was virtually no wait time in between my consultation and my surgery date. My surgery was yesterday at 1:30 PM. I had one Vicodin when I got home just in case, but I probably didn't need it. It is now the first day after surgery and I have not needed any pain medication. I will update as I recover!
Day 3 pictures posted! The swelling is... more
I am a 36-year-old Asian female and was fortunate enough to have a decent eyelid crease, but I had excess skin and fat which hooded my eyelids. Eye shadow never quite looked right after I applied it, and every time I looked at pictures of myself, my eyelids always bothered me.
I had my surgery (upper blepharoplasty) in October of 2011. Recovery was a breeze. My eyelids were bruised for a... more
I would not refer anyone to the surgeon I used the first time. The dermatologist I used the second time did an okay job except I was locked inside the building twice because they "forgot" I was in a room waiting.The actual drop down thing I needed wasn't there. I have xanthomas around my eyes. Had them surgically removed the firs time, the second time they were just sliced off.... more
