Eyelid Surgery – Testimonials
Patient of surgery of eye bags.
I am a woman of 52 years and I have always had very marked dark circles, and for more than 40 years I have tried to apply different correctors to disguise the dark circles, making me unsightly damage without noticing. Besides the dark circles my upper eyelids were somewhat droopy, so much so, that mid-afternoon had trouble seeing. My friends suggested that I consider a blepharoplasty operation. Dr. Garcia-Dihinx was the surgeon who most often recommended the people and the same primary care physician. After taking some time to make the decision and broaden the research on the operation of eyelids, I decided to continue.
Dr. García-Dihinx informed me that she could solve the problem of excessive skin in the upper part with a superior blepharoplasty, but I indicated that the problem of dark circles was hereditary, and that probably continued to them after treatment. I really appreciate your honesty and I proceeded anyway. The surgery was shot, just like the doctor.
What finally made me decided by Dr. Garcia-Dihinx was the moment I showed the photos before and after the operation of eyelids I had done. In fact today I would be delighted to speak with any patient who is considering facial surgery for the eye bag, eyelid operation or any doubt that arises.
