Is there any dr that can rectify a botched bleph proceeded by nine lasers? I am devastated! (Photo)

Post-op lower lid blepharoplasty
You may want to see an Oculoplastic surgeon who has expertise with fillers. Juvederm Voluma XC along the zygoma can provide subtle lift that helps the tear trough area. Injection of fillers directly into the tear trough can lead to irregularities, edema, alterations of skin appearance, and vascular complications. Be cautious and get more than one opinion. You need to feel comfortable with the doctor who injects the filler. Voluma for the midface is injected into a relatively safe compartment and avoids the risks associated with injection directly into the tear trough. Your photo is taken at close range and in up-gaze which distorts the view a little - but it seems that the lid margins are in a good position (not pulled down or out - no ectropion) - this is good. You probably do not need additional lower lid surgery, but rather enhancement of midface volume. Best wishes with your decisions!
Thanks for your question and photo. It is really hard to tell exactly what you need based on your photo. You will need a consultation in person to get the best assessment. I am not sure that seeing a dermatologist or plastic surgeon or oculoplastic surgeon or a facial plastic surgeon will make a difference. You need to see someone that does revision eyelid surgery that offers different options from filler, fat or more surgery. Again a specialist, not a routine surgeon from the list above. More pictures would help with your assessment. Good Luck.
