Saved my Eyelid Appearance - One of the Best Oculoplastic Surgeons out There - White Plains, NY

Dr. Gupta was able to correct some deep lumpy scarring and other complications caused by other doctors' surgery on my upper eyelids, and she then did some cosmetic work to make my eyelid creases symmetrical. I had consulted many surgeons over the years, some of whom refused to operate as they... READ MORE

Eyelid Surgery to Eliminate Lower Eyelid Wrinkling?

I agree. I still have bright red spots on my cheeks 12 days after the procedure and don't know when they will go away; I was very swollen for a week as well. All this for a few capillaries that no one could see anyway! READ COMMENT

There may be some things that can be done. I had some brown lines after a CO2 peel on my forehead and the doctor was able to use a different laser to absorb the color. It peeled off like a scab about 10 days later and was gone. I'm... READ COMMENT

I believe you can get a different laser treatment which does not peel the skin but absorbs the brown color. It is often used on age spots, etc. I would consult some laser specialists or ask the doctors on here. READ COMMENT

I believe you can have the keloid scars near your ears lasered away by a good specialist. A friend of mine had thick keloid scars in front of her ears after a facelift, and her dermatologist lasered them off with an erbium laser. You... READ COMMENT
