Naples Oculoplastic Surgeon

His staff is nice he is cool his office is very nice always on time with callsand appointments.I was referred by steven prendeville because I went to him for consultation and he didn't handle congenital ptosis.

It takes at least 6 months for things to settle. Don't be depressed yet! Bartlett is right; if your eye seems smaller it may be in part due to swelling in the lid.

Swelling (edema) takes a year and a half to disappear.

After 8 weeks the eyes "open" up considerably due to receding swelling, however, the eyes are so delicate that it can take up to 2 years to be considered fully healed. As time passes, the changes are considerable.

Well looking at videos and doing research I found people who eyes were worse and they were finish two months three months nows I have loose eyelid skin and my eye appears smaller and my shape has changed and also if thts the case why p.s say after three months you have to pay for the surgery over if it a long process???

It doesn't seem fair to have to repay for the surgery after only three months. Especially since I don't think most plastic surgeons will consider a revision until at least six months after surgery. I had my revision a little over 5 months after the initial surgery and I didn't have to pay for a thing. My PS said any revisions/touch ups would be free for the first year.
