I am a man in his 60's with baggy and tired my eye's were. All the holiday family pictures in November and December 2015 were not pretty, even when fully rested and refreshed. It's hereditary; my father and his mother, and most of my cousins had the same problem.

Elizabeth Lee's reviews on Yelp were reasoned and favorable, along with two others. Making the consultation appointment was easy. We met in January 2016. Within 5-minutes at the appointment, I felt comfortable and sensed Elizabeth was the competent and skillful surgeon I was looking for.

We booked an appointment for late May 2016, after my teaching job finished. The surgery was at the Aspen Center adjacent to John Muir Hospital in Walnut Creek. Competent people. The surgery happened like magic; you are under. My wife drove me home. The next day and a week later, there were followup visits with Elizabeth at the Lafayette office.

I was going to my local coffee shop within 5-7 days. Friends noticed the slight bruising, but only a couple asked. (Even ordinary glasses with frames hides a lot.) I just told them I had vanity surgery, and that pretty much ended their interest. I had small, kidney bean size bruising below each eye after two weeks. In a month, hardly noticeable. And today, two-months later, nothing. There is a residual tissue memory, something like an itch, that surrounds the eye. Only noticeable when thought about.

Here is what to take away from a guy's perspective. The most important concern is safety and competency of the surgeon, and here, Elizabeth Lee is 100% spot on. Second, the impact of having an elective, facial surgery is something to think through. Once you become informed and decide to go ahead, you will feel an occasional uncertainty, but I think that's natural. On the day of the surgery, it all comes together, especially if you are in good hands.

Last item is your experience talking with other's about your procedure. At first, I was uncertain how that would go. In the middle of the first time I explained what happened to my friends, I knew this was a piece-of-cake. I told them it was about vanity, and that worked. I felt more at ease. Frankly, now two months later, I hardly think about it - except when I look in the mirror. I feels much better to see a relaxed and happy face again. Tired eyes are a drag.

When considering this procedure, look on the internet and gain some information. Before and after pictures can be jarring, but press on. Make a few appointments, and get the feel of what this is about. Schedule a week or so of free-time for the procedure and post-op healing and relaxation. And go for it.

Good luck with your search for more information on this topic, which can be a fairly new experience for anyone. And, of course, you should consider Elizabeth Lee as your surgeon for this procedure. My results were fabulous. And, I trust her.
