6 week post op- Left side retraction improved while the right side got worse. I'm going to follow one of the doctors advice & hold out the Kenalog as long as possible. I don't want to do anything prematurely & ends up having more wrinkles once the scar tissues softened over the months.
You can still have have lid retractions even with canthopexy

My Doctor: Peter G. Lee, MD, FACS
I gave Dr. Peter Lee 5 stars all around because I only care about the OUTCOME not so much about his staff or anything else. He is an expert in doing the lower bleph surgery. At first I wasn't sure since he is not an Oculoplastic surgeon, just a plastic surgeon. But I chose him because he teaches other doctors on how to do this surgery so I know he is very competent. Other reasons are because he believe in a natural & conservative approach. I love my eyes & just wanted to look younger, not different. At first I wasn't sure I wanted to have canthopexy or excess skin removed since I worried about having ectropion & visisble scars. I just wanted transconjuntival surgery because I know the scars are hidden & it is fairly safe. But he assured the scars are barely visible when we do the canthopexy & skin removal. He was absolutely right. His canthopexy incisions are within the natural fold of my upper lid. It is not over-extended above or beyond. The lower eyelid incision are very clean cut & hit right on the bottom lashes. On top of that, the cost is extremely reasonable considering it's a three surgeries in one. For the month of Sept, he even have extra 20% off. In sum, it was a very positive experience for me.
