Lower Lid Retraction-God is Good/Dr.Y is Better - Boston, MA

Back from Boston from having an eight year...

Back from Boston from having an eight year anguishing and tormenting lower lid big bugged eyed giant round eyed retraction!
Dr.Yaermchuk knows that being aggressive to ones face is not the way to go.
He performed a canthopexy perfectly -just the exact amount I needed done. Not high up in the corners, not too low neither. While I am still recovering, I've always been a slow healer.. I know my own eyes and I can honestly say I can see myself again in the mirror! Dr.Y is a great guy with lots of patience,especially with me- too which I am very grateful.
Canthopexy is the less invasive eye surgery then the more invasive canthoplasty -which I have quotes from other p.surgeons in the sum of twenty five thousand dollars to repair my lower lids. ,because I knew I didn't need such a big invasive eye surgery, definitely,obviosly canthopexy was my best option..
I'm so grateful, I shouldn't have waited 8 years to get my eyes done by him.
I am also going back to Dr. Y for him to do a reverse brow lift on me before the summertime.
I would post befores and afters..if only I had just one picture of me before...I never took any,never let anyone take any. If I ever come across one,I will certainly put a before and after pix,I do know just how important pictures are- I've searched through them for eight years,now I'm free.

I really have no patience-

I've always been a very slow healer..its very frustrating,their is no pain at all,a bit uncomfortable-lets be real.
By looking at my photos, just imagine the center of my eye dropped -or drooped down to notice the white part of my eye.Not much it was about 2mm -without juvederm in my cheeks to give my lower lid a boost.
So as you can see my lower lid was picked up VERY LITTLE because Dr. Y knew that's all I needed.
Sorry no before pictures. I looked very very bad,my eyes were so close to my nose because of my lower lid retraction that my nose even looked twice the size.

This is all due from an overly aggressive lower blepharoplasty -a fat transfer and to top that all off a chemical peel under my eyes that hurt so bad I thought I was going to pass out. Of course not being knowledgeable and thinking that I had done all my homework not only on my Doctor but on websites including Realself, I dont believe enough women are actually aware of these complications when they want to have eye surgery. For eight years I have read at the very least dozens and dozens of people that are completely devastated, in hiding because of such humiliation or try more and more surgeries to fix their eyes. It's taken me a very long time,years to take a leap of faith and hopefully start living my life again.
Looking forward to my reverse brow lift -another surgery done at the same time as my lower bleph. Both surgeries I have deeply regretted,life altering that just broke my soul.
Please do your research and make sure you absolutely can't live with some bags and wrinkles. Dozens and dozens sure wish we had. Best of luck to whoever is reading this post.
