So im finally going ahead with my upper eyelid surgery in 2 weeks time. This is something I never really thought about having done, but a friend who is also a dermatologist said to me "you have such pretty large eyes, the droopiness is making you look tired". Since that moment 4 years ago,... READ MORE

I have worked as a RN in OR for 16 years and know these surgeons well. I witness pre-op, surgery, and post-op. I'd let any of them (and have) perform surgery on me. I chose Dr. Derby, deciding I needed someone who will not retire as I approach my senior years. As years passed, bags and wrinkles... READ MORE

I have wanted this almost my entire adult life, I couldnt wear eye makeup because it was lost in the folds of my eye. Dr Chesnut is amazing in what he can do, such intricate work with such beautiful results. He is the absolute best and would trust his judgement on any procedure. I am so glad I... READ MORE

I've had a droopy left eyelid every since I could remember and I've always hated it with passion. I especially hate how it looks in photos and with makeup. The dropping of the lid causes my eyelid to look smaller and has a completely different shape from my ''good eye''. I don't really notice it... READ MORE

On the early morning of my 53rd birthday, I find myself on a flight south to San Diego, where I will cross the boarder into Tijuana and meet the talented surgeon, Dr Juan Fuentes, whom I hope will turn back time a decade or so for me. I have never been happy with my droopy eyes, even in my youth... READ MORE

Have seen my upper eyelids droop and get wrinkly in last few years and was making me feel old. The skin on my face has gotten much more loose and crepey around the eyes and cheeks. Made an appt with Premiere Cosmetic for upper eye-lid consultation. Dr William J. Welsh suggested I have both upper... READ MORE

I am having my surgery on Friday. I've been researching for a long time and finally found a surgeon who I really like. I've had my pre op appointment and she really made me feel comfortable. I got a little Botox that was included in the costs and I love it. Dr. Christopoulos is really amazing... READ MORE

My eyelids were so heavy that it was an effort to keep my eyes opened wide. I had done Botox and it helped a bit, but with age my lids kept getting worse, so decided to have an eye lift. Interestingly, I didn't even realize how much effort I was putting in to keeping my eyes open until after I... READ MORE

I had surgery Tuesday January 20, 2015 so as I begin this review am at 11 days post op. This experience is just too crazy not to write about it. I can't tell you how many times I looked in the mirror last week and said "What the hell did I do to my face?!" Thankfully I thought to prepare my 12... READ MORE

My eyes have been looking saggy for over a year now and I was petrified to get an upper eye lift. The idea of having skin cut so close to my eyes was scary and also frightened that it would somehow change my eye shape. (It didn't.) I will need a lower bleph too eventually but taking things one...

I noticed in my mid to late 30's that I started to look tired all the time. Even though I was refreshed, I would still have family members and coworkers ask if I was tired. My upper eye lids were looking more heavy and hooded, and the bottoms were developing bags. No creams, serums, lotions or... READ MORE

I have always been bothered by the bags under my eyes. I have always known i had allergy shiners, no matter how much sleep I can get then they don't seem to be any smaller. The were wrinkles I get under my eyes when I smiles also have bothered me that last couple of years And my chin....oh... READ MORE

Ever since I was ten years old, I was self conscious about my puffy eyes. As I grew up, I tried everything to improve them: creams, cold presses, tea bags, etc. but nothing could help their appearance since they were just naturally there. It made me absolutely miserable. I was young, yet... READ MORE

My Doctor, DR. Nijher, is a miracle worker! He and his staff were PERFECT from beginning to end!! I LOVE this guy!!! I had seen other docs for consults (dr. mack in tampa....but he did the bait and switch pricing...it turned me off).... I TRUSTED Dr. Nijher and glad I did. I got eyelid... READ MORE

I had wanted to have upper eyelid surgery for almost 10 years and finally did it. My PS used a local pain medicine and there was a little bit of pulling but nothing was painful. I am at Day 5 and beginning to see myself healing. I still have my stitches and bruising is still with me but... READ MORE

I consulted with Gary about an upper bleph, and also told him I wanted to investigate how easy or not it would be, to have my much hated bump removed from my nose. I had disliked the bump since I was 14 and only a couple of years ago I bumped into a friend whose small children asked I was a... READ MORE

Ive had droopy eyelids and bags under my eyes since i was in my 20's. Unfortunately I inherited them from my dads side of the family. My Mom found Dr Churukian through a few of her friends who had their eyes done by him. She was so impressed at their results that she immediately set up a... READ MORE

I'm counting down the days until I can finally have surgery to get rid of my lower eyelid bags. I have had them since my early 30's and they have gotten worse over the years. I'm so tired of looking tired and I am getting so excited for my upcoming surgery. I am having a lower lid Blepharoplasty... READ MORE

Always have had droppy eyes, they just seemed to be getting worse. I should have had it done years ago.
