Mid 40's Eyes Looking Too Tired - Irvine, CA

People asking if I'm tired, I found myself saying yeah I am. But no I'm not!! It's like I'm making an excuse for my eyes. That's when I knew I had to do something. I met Dr Sepher for a consultation based on he's many good reviews. Dr. Ali Sepehr is a board-certified Facial Plastic Surgeon. I went back and forth on fillers or lower bleph. I have puffy swollen under eyes. The best choice was lower blephs, but I'm not going to lie after reading all the bad reviews it scared me to pieces!! I just could not do it even though I know I found a great Dr and I trust him ,it's not him its me type of feeling. I decided try fillers for now and take it from there. Hopefully it will do the job for a few years so that when closer to 50 I can do both uppers and lowers blephs and yes this will be the Dr I go to. I just loved he's patience with me and trust me when I tell you I talked to him several times in person and on the phone, why? Well I would read certain stuff here and I'd write down my concerns and he was always willing to help me wanted me to feel sure about whatever direction I wanted to go. Finally I knew this is what I wanted. I also took my husband with me and we both decided to do one syring each restalyn under eyes,tear trough area, Botox for our crows feet, and I also used 1/2 syringe juvaderm for my lips. Total spent $2200. (2 syringes restalyn, Botox for both of us only for our crowsfeet I forgot how many units he said it was for each of us, and one syringe juvaderm for my lips.i don't have the breakdown in front of me but I believe it was between $530-560 per syringe restalyn. I had it done yesterday and today I woke up pretty swollen very tiny bruises hardly nothing. My husband had minimal swelling and no bruising. The pics don't show the swelling but in person I feel it and I look a little diffrent. A little puffy,lol but I can't see the big round circles under my eyes. I can't wait to see finals results. I will update in a week or two with final pics. Unless I have any issues, complications,etc then I'll post sooner. The Dr advised me I would get a call within a week to see how Im doing, but if I have any questions or concerns before then to call him.

Final review- 9 days after

Much better than before for a temporary fix. After swelling went down I looked normal more like me, the circle that went all around my bottom eye is less noticeable but you can still see it closer to my nose area beginning of eyes. At least not all the way around like before which is what I was hoping for some improvement for now, I won't add more, I read reviews where people use two or more syrnges for eyes , not me, I'll stick to one and thats it. Once I see no difference then I'll proceed with the surgery. My lips look a little fuller but If you want pouty and noticeably bigger do the whole syringe. I may go back for my other half. I took many pictures where it didn't show my bags, which is a great feeling unlike before, but my goal for this is to be as accurate and capture the true detail and differnce good or bad.

Loved the Dr so far. I felt super comfortable, answered my many questions so patiently. Very professional, and just a very nice person. Not to mention he's education and accomplishments and his expertise. Of course I did my homework after all it's my face can't hide it!! The staff in the front desk are just so sweet! Cute little office clean, nice location, well equipped with coffee for us to enjoy, water, sodas, candy. very thoughtful. I really do highly recommend Dr Sepher.
