This patient came to see Dr. Kass complaining that when at work she felt that everyone was staring at the bags under her eyes. Dr. Kass explained that in addition to eye bags she had a condition known as festoons. He explained that to treat the eye bags without treating the festoons would leave her looking worse than before surgery. She elected to proceed with bilateral lower eyelid surgery and festoon treatments along with a full face Croton Oil / Hetter Facial Peel Procedure. She demonstrates a near perfect result from these combined procedures. Look at the difference in the lower eyelid bags and the festoons! But don’t miss the distinct improvement in the rejuvenated appearance of her cheeks! The patient thought that the surgery took years off of her appearance, and she thanks us to this day for giving her back her confidence to continue to work.
This very sweet 69-year-old patient came in complaining of bags, known as festoons, under her eyes. Although many patients, across the country, have told Dr. Kass that their plastic surgeons had said that nothing could be done for these unsightly bags, this is simply not true. Please look at these photos and decide for yourself! She received festoon treatment with under eye skin resurfacing using the Hetter Facial Resurfacing Procedure that Dr. Kass has perfected in 14 years of use. This patient was so very pleased with her results after this treatment, she is presently contemplating procedures with us.
This patient hated the appearance of his lower eyelids. After turning 66, this patient decided it was time to have his festoons removed and went to see his plastic surgeon. That doctor, recognizing the difficult nature of festoon treatment, referred the patient to Dr. Kass, knowing that there simply was no substitute to the vast training and experience of an eye and face plastic surgeon in treating this difficult area. The patient felt that his festoons made him look much older than he actually was and that it was all anyone ever looked at while speaking to him. After his consultation, the patient booked his surgery that very same day and was able to get in within 2 weeks for the procedure. At his final post-operative visit, the patient said that the results are more than he could have hoped for, and was so glad he made the decision to come see Dr. Kass!
