MY PERSONAL REVIEW
 

 

I actually had the above done in 1990, but the latest date to select on this site is 1995. Dr. Birnbaum did a very nice upper eye job and I was pleased. The lower lid was pulled to much. You can see white under my iris and my eyes do not close completely when I sleep. Gives me sort of surprised look, but has actually gotten a bit better over the years as I've aged. Its been over 15 years and the upper lids still look good. Thats the good news. The nose "revision" he did didn't go well. I had asked for a more refined tip as I was "pug-nosed" and getting too old for the look. The cuts he made on the outside of the nose scarred and are still very visible. Most people want to know if I was in an accident. He tried to fix it with silicone injections (more than once). Didn't help. Went to another doctor who was going to do a scar revision on it until he discovered that silicone had been injected to it. Said it could cause healing problems and strongly suggested leaving it alone. Still have scars...a conversation starter. So for upper eyes okay, go elsewhere for lowers and nose revisions. Not Mr. Personality either (unless you are one of his celebrity clients), doesn't give you much info, always seemed in a hurry. I wouldn't go to him again.
