I'm excited to share y review. I've done a ton of research on this site and wanted to share my feedback to hopefully help someone else in making their decisions. My dark circles have gotten progressively worse over the years. If I could have covered them up with makeup I probably could have... READ MORE

My partner of eight years is the one that encouraged my initial visit with Dr. Rowley in Lubbock, Texas. He is a huge advocate of taking care of your skin and being proactive about surgeries to keep you looking good. After his visit with Dr. Rowley getting Botox and Juviderm I asked him what he...

I found Dr. Richards from reviews on realself.com. Didn't have much time to check other places and do not regret my decision. I've had a lot of hesitation going into this procedure. My primary concern being that the procedure will change my eye shape and my facial expression will not be the... READ MORE

Redundant skin was starting to interfere with my vision & my eyes were not as open as when I was a little younger ( an asset which brought many complements). My surgeon, John A. Dean, MD, F.A.C.S. I had no trepidations, for I had seen his work. He had/has a pleasant rapport with his patients;... READ MORE

I would thoroughly recommend Mr Malhotra. He is extremely professional, very highly skilled and focuses on individual needs. Following 15 years of self-managing a dry eye that would not close due to the surgical removal of an Acoustic Neuroma in 2000, I contacted Mr Malhotra to see if anything... READ MORE

I decided that as this was the last time for a while visiting Thailand to go to the dentist, I would have my eyes done. I did quite a lot of research and decided on Dr. Pongsakorn Eamtanaporn at the Phuket Aesthetic Surgery Clinic Thailand. Its going to cost me 57,000 Baht or AUD 2200. I have... READ MORE

I felt my eyes were so droopy and overhanging, making me look permanently sad, that something must be done. I researched the web, reading about other peoples stories and surgeries re blepharoplasty, which led me to decide it was for me too. I had the surgery on both upper and lower lids, and... READ MORE

Have been to Bangkok and Phuket for surgery before and I will say hospitals and staff are always amazing but am finding that the more popular they get the more expensive they are becoming and maybe not as cautious as they used to be. Also last time I had lipo in Phuket Doctor left fat on my back... READ MORE

I had my procedure done this morning to remove my congenital fat prolapse under my eyes. It was under IV sedation because I was very nervous about it and I feel great so far. My doctor is an oculoplastic surgeon and he chose a conservative fat removal only to minimise risk of complications. I... READ MORE

I inherited bulgy, puffy upper lids and after years suffering from allergies my lower lids are aging pretty badly as well. My husband suggested that I consult with Dr. Daniel Greenwald. My husband works at Tampa General Hospital so he knows a lot of the Dr's and their reputations. So I went in... READ MORE

Since the age of 35 years I developed bags with a trough underneath and hooded eyelids! (A trifecta of misery in my opinion) I absolutely detested them and spent $100s of dollars on lotions and potions to try and reduce them. I could have a good night sleep wake up ; look in the mirror and feel... READ MORE

My right eyes that was stiches upward with the long scar and cause my right upper eyes pull downward. My left eyes was even worse... READ MORE

I can remember being 19 and going to the Shisedo counter to buy under eye cream for bags. My eyes were always deep set, and slightly hooded, and my under eyes were extremely sensitive and would inflame, retain water on a dime, and they were always puffier than I liked. Being reasonably young... READ MORE

As a 27 year old woman, I was extremely self conscious of the dark, puffy circles under my eyes. I constantly looked tired, reapplied make up several times a day, and spent countless dollars on eye creams and concealers. After contemplating lower lid blepharoplasty for a couple of years, I...

Been thinking about getting surgery for a few years now. The puffiness used to come and go so I kept thinking, I'm OK. These days the puffiness under my eyes is there 90percent of the time and it's progressively getting worse, no matter how much I sleep. The saggy upper eyelids have been there... READ MORE

A few years ago I began to notice a big change in my face. Due to loss of volume under my eyes and heavy eye lids, my eyes were aging my face very dramatically. Despite all the lotions, potions, and make up tricks, I began to cringe when I saw pictures or looked in a mirror. I am generally a... READ MORE

I have always had dark circles and a huge fan of concealer but I had to draw the when I got the bags. I finally decided to do the surgery after seeing a picture I took over the weekend. I had been doing a ton of research and had some different opinions from different doctors but I went with the... READ MORE

I am 52 and as most women my age, I am interested in staying as young looking as possible! I've always had a lot of "eyelid" (extra skin) and the older I got, the more my eye area looked "tired" and heavy. After having the surgery, my eyes look refreshed and I definitely feel like it makes my... READ MORE
