I had my upper lids done at the same time as I had my full facelift with Dr. Standerfer. The main reason I went to see him was to talk about my sagging neck, which I have had my whole life. I asked him what else he might suggest to make me not look over 60. He told me that most people notice... READ MORE

I'm a 55 year old female with drooping eyelids. I knew that eyelid surgery was in my future, maybe 10 years. After a consultation, I thought why wait? Why not look good now? From the first moment I stepped into the office, I knew I made the right decision. The office was clean and comfortable... READ MORE

This site has been really helpful so I am sharing my story. I am scheduled for upper blepharoplasty and laser resurfacing of the lower lids next week. I'm feeling good about my doctor and the decision. But I am getting feedback from friends that i am 'too young' or 'crazy' to let someone cut... READ MORE

I had been concerned about the bags under my eyes from my early 30s. I have a photo of myself in a buggy on a beach aged 2 years - I had bags then! I'd always told myself that, if circumstances allowed I would address this in my mid 50s. So here we are. After copious research on the Internet,... READ MORE

I will be providing a photo journal of my experience in the Orbital Decompression medical restoration process from the disfigurement that Graves Eye Disease/Graves Disease did to me. I will provide before during and after photos and journalism if there is space to do so. This disease progressed... READ MORE

I am extremely happy I finally did this, was no where near as bad as I had anticipated. The eyes being done made such a big difference, I went from always looking tired and old to being much more youthful and rephreshed looking. I'm 4 weeks after the surgery and other than an occasional... READ MORE

I had a great experience. ( upper and lower) It was not all that painful, I healed fairly fast and I absolutely LOVE my results. I was so tired of people asking me "what's wrong, aren't you sleeping?" or "that must have been some party"! I'm a health nut, I just had horrible bags and lots of... READ MORE

I chose to have my surgery with doctor Arenas in Guadalajara after I saw my friend Miri return from Mexico with an amazing butt! Dr. Arenas had performed her Brazilian butt lift at a very affordable cost and a beautiful result. I had surgery before in Tijuana (tummy tuck and lipo to my back and... READ MORE

I have wanted to do this for years as I had excess fat and skin above my eyelids which made me appear tired and my eyes always felt "heavy". As I aged, the right eye was becoming worse than the left showing mild asymmetry. I hesitated due to concern for surgical risks, cost and fear of looking... READ MORE

I’ve had quite a few consultations with various surgeons, with a view to sorting out the problems I have in the eye, brow and temple areas of my face. I had previous botched surgeries that had resulted in paresis of my right brow area causing excessive eyelid hooding. Previous brow lift s... READ MORE

I saw Dr Faizal Anwar at DermaMed for an initial consult with the idea of having blepharoplasty, due to excess skin on my upper eyelids compromising my vision and appearance. What I didn’t know then, that I know now, is that a brow lift would have solved my problem and had a better outcome. He s... READ MORE

My Optometrist referred me to Dr. Woodman as a candidate for the eyelid surgery. Because my eyelids drooped so much, I was always trying to pull them up by raising my forehead. That caused a certain amount of strain, especially when reading. Dr. Woodman clearly communicated all aspects of the... READ MORE

I have known Dr.Shaw for a while. He is extremely knowledgeable and experienced in his field. My procedure was thoroughly explained to me beforehand as well as the post-op care. I had a lower lid bletheroplasty. I have to admit that I was hesitant to commit to elective cosmetic surgery, but... READ MORE

I had an upper Blepharoplasty with Dr. German Vargas in Guatemala. The procedure was relatively simple and painless and scars disappeared within a few weeks. I had an sagging lids and was unable to apply much eye makeup as a result. I have a more defined lid now and better area for applying... READ MORE

For as long as I can remember I had hooded eyelids, even looking back at photographs of me in my 30s. I never liked the look of them. I looked older than I was and everyone continually kept telling me how tired I looked. I wanted this solved. Well after several years of contemplating having the... READ MORE

Dr. Gorton was simply amazing. He performed my surgery with the utmost of care and precision. He made me feel completely at ease and took care of a few other moles that were of concern. The effects of the surgery were immediate and I cannot believe that I did not get this done sooner. As soon... READ MORE

I've had hollow under eyes for several years. Also lately my upper lids have sagged down pretty bad too. I tried tightening things up with a Co2 laser, which was great while it was swollen but everything dropped down again once swelling was gone. My surgery is one month from tomorrow. Reading...

I considered eyelid surgery for about a year and did a lot of research (including stories on Realself). Every time I looked in a mirror, all I could see was my droopy eyelids and under eye bags. My confidence and bubbly personality was slowly dwindling. So....for my 47th birthday I decided to... READ MORE
