Scheduled for Upper and Lower Blepharoplasty on June 27,2016 - Huntsville, AL

I've had hollow under eyes for several years. Also lately my upper lids have sagged down pretty bad too. I tried tightening things up with a Co2 laser, which was great while it was swollen but everything dropped down again once swelling was gone. My surgery is one month from tomorrow. Reading...

Would Not Recommend Filler for Under Eyes - Nashville, TN

I was bothered by hollowness under my eyes. Over 2 years ago, I went for consult with one of the most highly rated plastic surgeons in town. He recommended juvederm, which sounded like a better option than surgery. I decided to try it. Within a few days it became obvious that there was more... READ MORE

Having Abdominal Lipo on Same Day As Upper and Lower Blepharoplasty - Huntsville, AL

I had lipo on my stomach probably about 15 years go. My mom and grandmother both have a belly, and I had twins via c-section and my stomach was round and out there. The procedure did remove a lot of fat, so I could at least wear clothes that clung to my stomach and it looked flat. But no way... READ MORE

Permanent Hypopigmentation After Laser Treatment - Nashville, TN

I was scarred and the RN burned me. Laser settings too high, which left me initially with purple water blisters on chest then when healed, permanent white scars in the tip of the laser. I've been trying for over 2 years to get these scars fixed and can't. I can't wear any V neck... READ MORE

Juvederm in Lips... So Far, So Good... - Huntsville, AL

Was in Huntsville for a day and had seen previous review about Permalip implant. Dr. McLain recommended I try fillers in lips before implant. Good idea!! He was able to fit me in for Juvederm, got 1 syringe in mostly upper lip. Minimal swelling, love it. The office is beautiful, his staff is... READ MORE

Co2 for Wrinkles Under Eyes. Lebanon, TN

For several years I've wanted to improve my under eye area. I first noticed pronounced hollowing under eyes around 2010. After much reading on this site and on the advice of friends who've had filler under eyes, I decided to try it. I went to a very reputable oculoplastic surgeon here in... READ MORE

Questions from tabithanash

What is this bubble under my eye years after Restylane in tear trough? (Photo)

I had restylane injected to fill out hollow under eye area in 2009. Most of the filler has dissolved but there is one area under my right eye that looks like a bubble. When I... READ MORE

Hannah how does the restylane look now that it's been over one month?? READ COMMENT

There is a laser that can fix that. I can't remember if it's the vbeam or IPL, but it targets the brown/red color from pigment and vascular discoloration. Maybe your doctor has the laser?? Most docs do have several lasers these days.... READ COMMENT

You are correct Grace. I wish someone would've believed me and at least tried to dissolve the filler before surgery. I've had 4 rounds of the dissolver and it does make a difference each time but it's still not totally gone :(. I've... READ COMMENT

Excellent point/question Grace!!! I really think if I could have gotten the filler removed, especially that big ball under my right eye, I most likely would not have gone out and spent $8,000 for surgery!!! Ugh!!! READ COMMENT
