Already spoke to Richtea mate, I emailed this clinic but they said they only show pictures of patients at the consultation and it costs 180 pound, so you got to pay this money and lose it f you don't like what you see etc. think I will give this one a miss.

Just by looking at this doctor €™s face I probably would not have surgery with him.

When I flew into Brussels for my last procedure I experienced something that has never happened before. I had these incredible bags underneath my eyes and most definitely it was something I ate which was the airline food I should have passed. Not sure if it was sodium, msg or what but something happened. It took at least 3-4 days to go away. That is how major diet can be when it comes to skin and the face.

I would suggest taking a very close look at the faces of both Dr. Joseph Mercola and Dr Nicholas Perricone. What are they doing where for their age 60+ their skin and eye area look fairly good when compared to others. Might be a better option.

Do you really think that looking at a doctors face can tell you whether they are a good cosmetic surgeon. If you use this type of reasoning then nobody would ever go to a bald hair transplant doctor surely.

Well logically what you say doesn €™t make any sense as most really bald people are not candidates for hair transplantation. So HT doctors that are very high norwoods know better than to even try. Some doctors have had horrific hair transplantation work for instance Puig and if anyone seen it beforehand they certainly would not have the procedure performed. Since that time most of the work has been corrected but before that you never met the doctor only the consultant and that was exactly the reason.

Harris is a very high norwood and his result is a good indication of what can be achieved with limited door and that is very limited results so I'm sure that is a be drawback for him in selling.

In my opinion eye lid/bag surgery is much different as one is not depending on some limited resource so yes I €™m looking at the doctor €™s own eyes and in my opinion it would be like taking health, nutrition and weight loss advice from a out of shape obese individual probably not the best choice.

Just an opinion though it doesn't mean that I'm right.

I would defer to Richtea's advice as he seems to have both experience and knowledge. His face speaks volumes and it's nice to know we have someone here on the forums that has a larger knowledge base when it comes to this area.

Plastic surgery is common these days, especially smaller procedures like an eye lift. However, having surgery done on your eyes can come with certain risks.
