I had heard great things about Dr. Ostreicher which is why I chose him as my surgeon. In fairness, we didn't talk in great detail about expectations because he was supposed to be the best. I wanted some hanging fat in the inner eye removed and a refreshed look. What I walked away with was a deeply hollowed, unnatural look. My eyes look small and beady. Even with all the extra skin before the surgery, they still looked pretty. Now, I feel I look mean. Like many people, my eyes were my favourite feature and I just hope no one notices how ugly they now look behind my glasses. My eyes are also very asymmetrical now--one eye is practically located in the eyebrow area. He cut way too much skin out. I honestly don't know how he gets such great ratings. I look at pictures of other people's results on sites like this and realself and I'm envious. I think he practices an old style of plastic surgery--one that was taught in the 70s or 80s and is now out of date. People want to preserve the fat and have subtle improvements-==not a completely ''done'' look like he gave me. Despite my disappointment, he told me I had a ''good result." I found that insulting. I'm considering injectables or even microfat grafting to the area. I'm terrified to have anything else done in case it's even worse. Please, please do your research. Look at pictures. I trusted too much. I so regret having this done by Dr. Ostreicher.
