I had it done Oct 16th of 2010 and my eyes are awful - I can't wear make-up anymore - my upper and lower lids are always irritated and inflamed and swollen - my eyes are bloodshot and dry and both eyes are going down on each end with a blunt cut/scar - I can't believe "I" did this to myself. I am an idiot! I'm just blessed I can still see - there is very little relief - I've gone to the Rand Eye Institute and they felt bad for me having it done and think it is a very unwise thing to do because it typically brings on many problems.
Wish I could warn people to never do this - my eyes were very pretty before - now I think I must have them pull the ends up a tad and I'm really scared about that because of how awful they feel now. Don't know what to do, and can't afford going to an eye specialist plastic surgeon, who I know can fix this problem I'm having. Wish I could get to the right specialist.
Hoping with time my problems will subside. Wasn't to happy with the facelift overall - not tightened enough and they did under my neck and there's a clear line of hanging flesh from my chin to my neck. It's bizarre. I'd have rather had my hanging double chin, than this thin long line of skin hanging down under my neck. When I showed this to the doctor he said, "well it looks better than before!: Well, it really wasn't what I had paid for. I had a second opinion with a different surgeon and for 7000. he's eager to tighten my face and fix the problems and said he was a perfectionist. I want to go with him, but feel awkward disputing the charges where I originally had it done.
I know they did there best and there best just wasn't good enough in my book. So I could dispute these charges and then take that money and go with this new Dr. that has given me hope and confidence. He said he'd give me a brow lift. I told him that I had had a brow lift. Nice. I have knots in my neck that bulge out and are still sore. I have a blood clot on my cheek that doesn't look like it's going away any time soon. The stitching they did behind my ears feels terribly sloppy. Don't know what to do but I'm surely up for some good advice. Thanks for listening - Jill

At Strax they bend over backward to make you become their client - they are very accomodating. I believe they are board certified plastic surgeons but perhaps not "the best" because it they were the best my eyes would have looked better, had a natural shape rather than the round-eye look, and wouldn't been shaped down at the ends - I think they need more classes on eyes seriously, or don't do them.
