I have been consulting with both oculoplastic and facial plastic surgeons in NYC for upper and lower bleph. Half want to do the lower lid incision under the lash, the other half want to do transconjunctival. All consults went well but not sure which type of surgeon to go to-one that specializes in eyes or one that aesthetically may make the eyes look better. After reading this forum I realize that the recovery is hell with either choice. Any feedback will be appreciated.

i used Dr. Antell in NYC, a plastic surgeon, after interviewing many surgeons and i thought he did an amazing job with upper and lower surgery on my eyes. I am very pleased with the results.

I would like to say , You should be research good facial plastic surgeon .Plastic surgery is not a cure-all, and must not be perceived as being what is indicated. Numerous prospective patients expect anaesthesia because of unreasonable desires. And regardless of how evident an affirmation it may appear, an excessive amount patients are not getting a handle on it completely -plastic surgery can change our forms, yet not the way we feel inside. http://nycsalomon.com/PhotoGallery.html

Don't use an oculopastic surgeon. They are for eye tumors.

I would choose an oculoplastic surgeon. The recovery isn't horrible, very little pain, no drugs needed post op.
