Bags Remain After Blepharoplasty

I always looked tired even when I wasn't because of bags under my eyes and heavy upper eyelids.I had an upper and lower blepharoplasty on both eyes this past March.

Lower Eye Lid Surgery/ Not Happy with Results

I feel that my doctor took a very "conservative" approach to my surgery. As a result, I do not see much of a difference at all. Im not saying that he screwed my eyes up. Im saying that I paid 3000k for pretty much nothing. I hated my eyes before, I hate my eyes now.Im a 30 year old... READ MORE

Results Lasted Only Two Years

Pros: Looked good; opened eyes for a less sleepy look Cons: results only lasted two years...maybe less. Visible scars on eyelid corners. I went in to surgeon's office for follow-up a year later, and his assistant was trying to talk me into considering other procedures. She said, "have... READ MORE

My Lopsided Face

An eyelift 5 years ago caused internal bleeding trickling down alongside of my nose and settling in my chin area. I was bruised for several weeks.

Upper Bleph-What YOU Need To Know

I ONLY wanted the excess skin above the creases removed; I told the doctor "conservative"-not a drastic change. They assured me that he was not one to over-do things or give you a surgical look.I was not told about the post-op: gritty, dry eye, the milia, the "buttons" along... READ MORE
