Share your story about why you considered and ultimately had cosmetic surgery.

i had been considering upper lid surgery for a number of years but it was really starting to get bad as far as cosmetically and affecting my eye sight. I am pretty young looking even though i am in my early 60's but my lids really added to my age and the lids hanging over my eyes really started to diminish my abiltiy to see out of the side of my eyes. I had a test done a few years ago that proved that my hanging lids where definitely reducing my vision and since then the lids had gotten worse and really needed to be corrected.

How did your friends and family feel about your decision to have a procedure?

They all felt it was a very good decision and applauded me.the support that i received from them was definitely very supportive and only helped me in my decision.

How did 1800MySurgeon help you through the process of finding a qualified plastic surgeon?

1800mySurgeon is not only very responsive in my inquiry but answered my inquiry in a very timely and informative way. Giving me the most helpful instructions along with doctors name,address and phone number and were most helpful in me finding the best surgeon to to the surgery.

Can you describe your surgery and recovery?

iI had a pre-surgery appointment where the staff from the start where most helpful.the surgeon was most honest and answered all my question and described the surgery from start to finish and allayed any fears that i might have. the day of the surgery from the preparation to the actual surgery was done in the most professional way as was the post op. the surgery involved was to remove the additional lids that had started to sag and overhang the eyes and some minor fat removal in the upper lid area.the stitches where done in such a way that it was very difficult to see that i had any surgery at all.

What advice would you give to another person considering your same procedure?

i would certainly urge to use the 1800mySurgeon to locate a good surgeon for you so that any fear you have will be alleviated and that also the surgery will be done in the most professional. it is also the supporting staff that made me feel so comfortable and made me feel like they really care about the patients well being.

How do you feel about your result?

i am very pleased and have been assured that if in anyway i am not 100% satisfied with the final outcome of my surgery that any minor corrections needed will be done at no further expense to me.
