Eye Surgery

My upper blepharoplasty resulted in my eyes looking the same or worse after surgery. In addition, I had requested Juvaderm in my cheeks like I had been getting for years. Dr. Neufeld substituted Belotero against my wishes and injected too close to the orbital rim resulting in a permanent black... READ MORE


I asked Dr. Kenneth Neufeld of the Thomas Eye Group in Atlanta to inject Juvaderm in my cheeks as I had been doing since 2007. As he is injecting me he tells me he is using Belotero, a new product, instead. I was alarmed but he assured me that it would last longer. Several days later a large... READ MORE
