Surgery to remove wrinkles between the eyes

Common Questions and Answers about Surgery to remove wrinkles between the eyes


Avatar n tn I've had the exact same thing for almost 4 years now. I tend to get the bumps after crying or if my eyes tear up enough to water the skin around my eyes. I've been trying to see a Dermatologist buy they refuse to see me because it's around my eyes. I went to EVERY type of eye doctor and they know that it's not herpes, but they don't know what it is. It got soo bad I started using my Son's cream for eczema (fluticasone prop 0.05% cream) and as long as I use it once every day it keeps it away.
233488 tn?1310696703 The problems outlined in #9 above may require surgery on the “other” eye to re-establish the ability of the eyes to work together with and without glasses. This can be true even if the cataract is small or even non-cataractous. 11. So called “Premium” IOLs (toric, multi-focal and accommodating) are used to reduce dependence on glasses. For almost all people they do not eliminate glasses 100% of the time.
Avatar n tn I also have distorted vision, uncorrected refractive error and astigmatism, image size difference between the eyes and zero depth perception. I have other issues in addition to the negative dysphotopsia. And they are in fact in my eye, not in my head. I have epiretinal membrane, intermittent CME, large vitreal floaters, wrong power IOL implanted, loose zonules, previous lasik, and the beginnings of Fuch's corneal dystrophy.
Avatar m tn I had originally only planned on having 1 eye done (since the other was 20/20 correctible still), but when the patch came off the next day I discovered it might be hard to adapt to the difference in vision between the two eyes even with a contact lens in the other eye. I might have quickly adapted if I'd taken the time, but I decided I didn't want to risk it, so I had the 2nd eye operated on a few hours later.
Avatar n tn I didn't know the fingers were related to that problem, but when I got on the thyroid medicine the wrinkles went away. Most doctors don't even know about that symptom as a sign to check the thyroid.
Avatar n tn Regardless of whether I use or don't use makeup some days I wakeup and can't even open my eyes. January 2009 I went back to see the allergist and begged him to prescribe Alrex to me. I was reminded that Alrex is not a solution to my problem, but rather a temporary relief. I was told that I will not be prescribed Alrex. I was offered a test to see whether I am allergic to common chemicals in products, and in the meanwhile I was told to make an appointment to see dermatologist.
359574 tn?1328364024 That makes it less likely to rupture, but also more difficult to repair through open surgery, since you have to actually remove the bone to get at it. Because the ophthalmic artery is at the base of it, it can’t be coiled in an endovascular procedure. My neuro-opthalmalogist was of the opinion that it couldn’t be clipped without killing the eye, but the surgeon says it is possible, just a 5% chance of that happening.
Avatar m tn At 40 years young I had a triple bypass with 95% blockage and previous to my surgery had started getting creased earlobes about three years prior. By the time I had surgery it was bad. I had also gotten to the point that I could no longer run up the three flights of stairs that I had been doing several times a day for several years and was fatigued all of the time. This hit me like a ton of bricks, I mean I was only 40, in good physical shape, at well... you know the rest!
373751 tn?1215960658 I'm 20 years old and I pull out my eyelashes, I've been doing this for a couple of years now and I need help and I've finally realized I can't do it alone. Anyone with the same problem, please friend me. I'm tried of this horrible habit and starting today I'm done pulling them out.
Avatar n tn I have had the same symptoms (red swollen eyelids, both top and bottom, red swelling on the skin to the outside of the eyes, flakey, dry itchy too) for about 5 weeks. I thought it was becuase I am newly pregnant (hormones?) - have tried the baby soap and have been not wearing makeup, washed all my makeup brushes, changed pillow case more often and nothing is helping. However, Aveeno HAND cream does help with the dryness and itching a bit, but it does not cure it.
Avatar f tn One of those doctors suggested I have plastic surgery to remove the excess skin from my eyelid - the very excess that resulted from the inflammation. Even though she claimed she could not help me as there was nothing wrong with me according to her, she still put me through several test and charged my insurance company plenty, and still wanted to make more off me as she scheduled me for a follow-up. Needless to say, I never went back to her office.
485259 tn?1326312778 Running is something that won't be on your top ten list of favorite activities for a while after the surgery. I don't know much about the butt wiper but I do have a grabber to use to pick things off the floor if I drop something. I think if you go onto a disability site you can find a lot of bathroom aids along with other helpful items for limited mobility.
443434 tn?1255894833 I'm so sorry you had a vitreous detachment like me. I had to wait over a year and they did surgery to remove the large floater in my left eye. They had me wait to see if it would drop out of view, but it never did, so surgery was the option. It was a breeze and I was able to see again out of my left eye without the massive floaters. I hope this is an option for you. My right eye still has them, but not as bad and I can so far at this moment, live with those.
Avatar n tn I had PRK (more invasive surgery than Lasik) done recently and at my 4 week follow-up the surgeon said the white under my eyes are due to a lack of oil produced in the glands around my eyes and eyelids. I told him it has been this way for years (I'm 37) and he said he understood (nodded his head like, yep...see it all the time). I always thought it was from when I was a young teen and went to the tanning booth that they permanently stayed white...turns out that's not the case.
Avatar n tn the slightly crepey skin and wrinkles inside the elbow crease, all the loose bunched up crepey skin on the outside of the elbow, skin has totally thinned on my hands- veins stick out (same with my feet), my feet has such loose crepey skin and are so wrinkled I can pull the skin on them pretty good, I have jowls, wrinkles under my eyes, getting wrinkles between the nose, three lines/wrinkles on forehead, lips are lined/ lost volume, boobs dropped and shrank, I get those neck things when I smile,
Avatar n tn It is embarrassing to have and not be able to look people in the eyes. I have tried all the creams at the drug store, I even consulted the doctor i work closely with and she recommended Eucerin. Which i bought, but it seems to have made my eyelids worse. Yesterday morning I woke up with my eyelids super swollen and flakey. I ended being sent home from work because i couldn't keep my eyes open because of the itching and burning.
Avatar n tn Last year I suddenly developed dry skin on the left eyelid and was prescibed hydrocortisone. Unfortunately it spreaded to the right eyelid the to the bottom of both eyes. The hydrocrtisone did not work, instead peeled away a little skin. I continued wearing make up (mac) as my dark circles are very bad. I went to see an optician who thought it was bletharitis, but I don't think it was. And I had an allergy test (machine tested me on 3000 products).
Avatar n tn I went to a dermatologist in high school and he gave some topical cream but it didnt really do much good, as over th eyears between two to four months I may get one painful lesion on my nose which I assumed was from the oils rubbing on my pillow then subsequently rubbing to that side of my face particularly my nose. Now the past few weeks at work, I thought it was strange that my left nostril was getting a weird sensitive irritation near the closer part of my nostril .
Avatar n tn just remember, too, that your body has been through trauma due to the surgery and so it would take time to adjust hormonally anyway. Well, good luck to all. This is a huge and controversial topic, I know....But, there should be something out there to safely help you. Just keep reserching.
Avatar f tn So just exercise excellent hygiene in your personal surgery as to not worsen the situation. You are essentially removing the inner workings of the pore... The follicle wall... The sebaceous gland. Sometimes it grows back some times it doesn't. But chances are you probably have folliculitus (looks like acne in a patch) and its infected. That's why it gets better when you take the plug out bc it's holding the bacteria in it and around it keeping it inside your skin.
Avatar n tn I had a mastectomy 5 weeks ago and just last week I stopped taking vicoden. The pain is there constantly and I have problems sleeping due to the pain. I talked to someone and was told once you can do the exercises they recommend to get movement back that the pain lessens. This week is better. I called my plastic surgeon and he said not to do any exercises. They explained that it is still early in the recovery process. I know that the pain is bothersome. Trust me I know.
Avatar n tn It started several months ago, when my daughter turned about 6 months old. There has to be some type of connection, in my case, between the lifting and perhaps too soft of a mattress. Any ideas?
Avatar f tn This is the inflammation and damage to the large blood vessels that supply the head, usually branching in the neck from carotid artery, usually the temporal artery. Along with scalp sensitivity and tenderness other symptoms are excessive sweating,jaw pains intermittently, muscle aches, throbbing headache on one side or back of head, visual disturbances. Hemoglobin may be low, serum alkaline phosphatase is increased, sedimentation rate and C reactive protein are raised.
Avatar n tn I'm in my young 40's and thats enough to deal with the wrinkles,chin hairs, and bags under the eyes....Don't need a smelly coochie too....
Avatar n tn My biggest problem area is my armpits. The can be smooth as silk and you can still the the dark follicles. I used to get comments in high school like "forget to shave this morning?". I'm a very self conscience person anyway and that didn't help. I used to tweeze them every night. We all, I think, have something like that we can't stand.
Avatar n tn I too seem to suffer the exact symptoms, as is always the case it is nice to know you are not the only one suffering these symptoms. For me they seem to come and go and are mostly on my right & left arm & right leg, I have also had on occasions small blisters on the roof of my mouth towards the back (I am not sure if this could be linked but having thought about it a bit the thought now crosses my mind).
Avatar n tn green tea, tea, garlic, onions, fruits, vegetables, protein shakes made with juice or water (make with protein powder that contains alot of the amino acids, which help bind to mercury and remove it from the body), chicken or turkey two/three times a week (baked and organic if possible). Also, 2 tablespoons of flax seed (add it to the protein shake) slowly going up to 4 tbsp./ daily, along with eating two apples a day.
Avatar f tn He said that your hair is growing back, and it itches to help the hair pierce the skin better, and remove dead skin from on top of the new hair growth. When you scratch, you naturally remove the dead skin on top of the new hair growth. He suggested encasing my bed as well, and it really did help. Finally, he suggest shaving downwards (from knee to ankle) instead of upwards. This really did help.
1647691 tn?1363727302 My Dr. requires there be at least 3 good follicules to do the ER surgery, and he likes them to between 15 and 20 mm in size. I think getting a second opinion is a great idea.
Avatar n tn I also try not to use daily pantiliners or underwear made of synthetic material. When the skin is inflamed and the itch is impossible to bear I try not to scratch and I use ice involved in a towel to ease and relieve the discomfort. I hope this will help you too. Sorry about my English.
