Tear Troughs--glad I Did It - Austin, TX

All of the staff I encountered here--from the receptionist to the nurse to the business manager--were very friendly and warm. I had been a bit apprehensive since I had never been to a plastic surgeon's office before and had heard stories of other offices being rather unfriendly, but everyone here is relaxed and welcoming. I felt very comfortable the entire time I was there.
The doctor has a very straightforward manner and dry sense of humor, which I liked. He is friendly but direct, which made me trust his opinion; I didn't feel as if he was trying to talk me into doing something not in my interest. He did caution me that the filler might not work very effectively in my tear troughs, considering the structure of my face, and I appreciated this--he seemed willing to turn away business if he didn't think it would really help the patient. I went forward with the injections anyway--I had already gotten my nerve up--and am glad that I did. It was virtually painless and so much easier than I had anticipated. I went back for a touch up about 10 days later and am very happy with one eye, whereas the other is better but not perfect. This is basically what the doctor warned me about, though, so I am not that disappointed or surprised. He also talked to me about tear trough surgery and gave a very thorough overview of the process and stages of recovery. I am intending to do this towards the end of this year since I love the way I look with my tear troughs fixed, and it will be more cost-effective in the long run than going back for filler every few months.
