Patient Comments (2)

Poor follow-up , left with major scare tissue and excess skin on incision site on my eyelids that are very noticeable with no plan to correct. Poor results for the finished look. Came in to remove excess skin from eyelids which resulted in poor execution of a clean incision site.
