Eyelid Upper and Lower Surgery Nightmare - Chevy Chase, MD

like everyone above i live in regret e v e r y d a y, to the point where i don't want to leave the house. before the surgery i was confident about myself. my eyes were almond shaped and beautiful. i had puffy eyes because i have life long thyroid disease. my thyroid levels were completely off when i went to see the surgeon. he is a very respected and chosen multiple times by a high regarded magazine in my city as one of the top surgeons. in our consultation i told him my thyroid levels were off. He insisted upper and lower surgery would help to take the tired look go away. he said after the levels were straight it would not effect the outcome of the surgery. a week before the proceedure i consulted a hollistic doctor who told me not to go through with it. i then went to the surgeon and explained to him i had second thoughts. he kept insisting my outcome would be pleasing and i believed him. 3 years later i don't even look like myself. i even had fat injected into my face to make it better and it hasn't. i don't regret many things i have done in my life but its hard to accept my face when i have to look at it everyday. i'm not even 40 and have aged 10 years in 3 years! thank you for sharing your thoughts.

I'm encouraged from the positive feedback from you...

i'm encouraged from the positive feedback from you special, thoughtful ladies. What has disturbed me the most is that i no longer look like my family members and when people that haven't seen me in a while, don't recognize me. I am trying to accept this new look but i wish i looked like i use to. At the same time i know it could always be worse, so i will try to move on and love and accept myself. THANK YOU FOR TAKING THE TIME TO SHARE YOUR IMPRESSIONS. love and light to you all.

Dr. Albert F. Fluery Jr. did not care about my feelings. he insisted that i get the surgery i did not need. i even went to him a week before the procedure was scheduled and told him i had second thoughts and did not want to go through with it. he insisted that the results would be pleasing. i can never reverse what has been done. i'll take the puffiness i had anyday.
