Not happy with Endotine. What to do? Would it possible to do facelift and fix low bugs under eyes w/o Endotine? Is it make sence to take it out?
I had surgery2/25.All my life I dream of this surgery, because since early age I had low bugs under my eyes.I am not Asian, but I have high cheek bones.Finaly I done my dream surgery and I am so upset. Endotine made my cheeks look too high and unnatural. One side swollen more. I feel ribbons near corner of eyes. My vision got worse and clear cornea got "folder" in corner of eye. What I should do? Can we take Endotine out? When it better to do? Before I heal or after, or wait when dissolves and see? I didn't improve my look, I paid money and made it worse. So regret, I should do just mini lift at my 40th, or full facelift, but not Endotine
:(. Please, help with advise. Thank you!

The Endotine can be released, if not removed. It may or may not help since healing/scarring has already settled in. You should discuss with your surgeon and obtain second consult.

Very hard to advise without in person examination or even photos posted. If that unhappy have the endotines removed in a local operation. Seek other in person opinions. Sorry for your issues.

I am ok now. Endottine disolved and I healed. I look 10 years younger. I just not happy with deep long scars in upper lids. Is there anything can be done? Scars are sunk, stretched. make up showing it even more.

Hi. I hope you can give me some feedback. I just had the endotine ribbon mid face lift a month ago. I have the same problem. My cheeks look unnaturally high and my face looked very pulled. I want to remove them as I prefer my old face. What should I do. Thanks.

I just saw this doctor. Since my last pst, the swelling has come down considerably. However, my face looks very stretched and pulled. My nose seems to look stretched as well making it appear smaller and rounder. It does not show in pictures though but I will be happy to send you these to your email perhaps? Thanks.
