I am a 44 year old Nurse Practitioner with heavy bags under my lower eyelids for at least 15 years. I've been told that I look young for my age, but at the same time, how tired I look. The procedure itself was quite easy, taking approximately one hour under general anesthesia. I was immediately able to see the difference postoperatively. I had very little bruising and absolutely no pain. I am currently two weeks postoperative and have already been told that I look 15 look younger by multiple people. I can't be happier. I found that arnica Montana and bromaline were very helpfull as well as eating pineapple for decreasing bruising and swelling. I also slept sitting upright for a week. I agree with other people on this site, make sure you pick the right surgeon for this procedure because it could easily go wrong. Dr. Deluca answered any questions and responded very quickly to any concerns I had postoperatively. I couldn't be happier with the outcome so far, and I know I will only continue to improve.

I finally decided to find a plastic surgeon that filled several important criteria. I wanted someone with experience, who performed many facial procedures, a good bedside manner, and confidence. I found all of these attributes in Dr. William Deluca. It was very simple to make an appointment, we met and scheduled my surgery within a couple of weeks.
