Dana’s Revision Eyelid Surgery – Dr. Massry Changed My Life

Lower eyelid retraction and canthal web - Dr Massry

"Dr. Guy Massry changed my life! I know it sounds dramatic but there is no other statement that would begin to describe what Dr. Massry did for me.  If you are reading this review you may be going through the same type of nightmare I experienced, at the hands of another doctor who absolutely botched your surgery or you may be researching doctors for your first surgery.  Either way, I am here to tell you, there is no one better and no one I would trust more than Dr. Massry in Beverly Hills.

I am a former model and was with the biggest agency in the world. I wanted to find a doctor who would not make me look different, just rested and refreshed. I searched for over a year.  The doctor I decided to go with, from NYC, was supposed to be "the Best in the Business." He was the most expensive doctor I interviewed. I thought logic would dictate, "you can't charge those kinds of prices and have great hype surrounding you if you are not the BEST"!!  I could not have been more wrong.  I had a HORRIBLE outcome!!!!  HORRIBLE!!!!  And here is the worst thing......this "great NYC doctor" blamed my old filler for his botched result.  His response to my panic was to tell me to go to a dermatologist and get filler to fix the problem.

I was devastated and felt so alone.  I looked so much worse than before the surgery.  I didn't look like me, anymore.  My lower lids were sagging and drooping. Under my eyes was so hollow and sunken.  I could not close my eyes at night and had to use a mask to hold them shut.  Even then I would wake up with painfully dry eyes.  I went through bottle after bottle of eye drops to fight the dryness.  I would see my reflection and my heart would sink.  I looked hollow and tired and my eyes looked deformed.  They were not "my eyes".  The emotional and psychological damage was as bad, if not worse, than the physical change.  I was incredibly self-conscious and would try not to make eye contact with people.  I would always try to smile, hoping my cheeks would push my lower lids up.  So, I would walk around smiling for no reason!!  I just kept my head down and hoped that people wouldn't look at me and see my droopy eyes.  That doctor in NYC and the horrible outcome stole my self-confidence.  It changed my personality.  My depression and hopelessness were constant. Always with me like a dark cloud.  It was the last thing I thought about at night and the first thing in the morning.  I felt so lost.  I had no idea what to do or who to talk to.  I was stuck in my fear of even considering another doctor because of my horrible experience in NYC.  Even after the NYC doctor saw the horrible outcome and told me to go get fillers, I never heard another word from him or his office. No follow up.  Nothing.  No concern.  Nothing!!! I felt so abandoned by him.  How would I trust another Dr?

I finally reached such a sad and desperate place, I called a friend of mine in LA and told him the story.  My friend in LA is literally the trainer to the stars!!  Superstars!!  He knows everyone!!  An hour after we talked he called me back with one name.  Dr. Guy Massry.  He said Dr. Massry is THE DOCTOR!!!  He has a stellar reputation and takes on the most difficult cases.  Cases other doctors won't even attempt. You can trust this doctor.  I called Dr. Massry and from the very first conversation, he put me at ease.  He understood my depression, lack of trust and not "seeing ME" when I looked in the mirror.  He understood my fear of another surgery and an even worse outcome.  After all, I trusted the NYC doctor and look what happened.  Dr Massry was so kind and gentle and explained that this type of revision is what he does.  He has performed hundreds of these procedures and he would not put me through the physical or emotional experience if he didn't feel he could help me.  He was a ray of light in what had become a dark and depressed world.  We talked many times over the course few months.  I had many questions, all of which were answered with patience and understanding and reassurance when I needed it.

Dr. Massry performed my surgery and I can't begin to describe the transformation.  Dr. Massry's skill, talent and the elegance of his work are just beyond anything I could have imagined.  Dr. Massry and Dr. Patel were there for me at all hours, checking on me, in contact with me regularly and if there was anything I needed it was taken care of immediately!!!  I never felt alone.  I pulled a stitch and Dr. Massry came in on a Sunday morning to repair the damage.  Who does that????  DR MASSRY!!!!!!!

I have many friends who are close to my age and considering surgery but I am the first to "go under the knife".  I only wish someone had gone before me and passed this knowledge along, so I could have avoided this horror.  I am telling all of my friends, and anyone who is considering surgery, GO TO DR. MASSRY!!!!!  DO NOT let anyone touch your eyes who is not an ocular plastic surgeon!  And even then, I am telling everyone, JUST GO TO DR. MASSRY!!!!  He even works with other surgeons who do lower face and noses and he will do your eyes!!!

I have learned that a botched surgery, changing the shape of your eyes can be devastating and change your looks, dramatically!  You don't look like "you," anymore.  Operating on your eyes is a specialty and, as I have learned, its not just about taking out extra skin.  It's about repositioning fat and muscle and its complex.  Please learn from my mistake.  You don't want to go through what I have gone through.  I don't know what I would have done without Dr. Massry.  I literally thank God for getting me to Dr. Massry, every time I see my reflection.  Dr. Massry changed my life.  He gave me back my confidence. He gave me back a sense of peace.  He gave me back, ME.  Thank you!  Thank you!  Thank you!!"

-Dana, New York

The Massry Method – Fixing Pulled Down Lower Lids and Rounded Eyes and Canthal Webs

Posted by admin

Dr. Guy Massry is internationally recognized for his exceptional ability to revise poor results from previous eyelid surgery. Far too often, eyelid surgery results in lower lid retraction, which occurs when the lower lids get pulled down after surgery, and canthal webs. These results are disfiguring and can be functionally disabling. This issue is very hard to fix and Dr. Massry has found that for many patients it requires a different “surgical recipe,” depending on examination, to make the eyes appear normal again.

How do you fix pulled down lower lids and rounded eyes?

Below is a great example of how Dr. Massry is able to revise this problem for patients after having surgery by another doctor. In the before pictures on the left, you can see her rounded eyes, with white showing below the iris (lower lid retraction), and the rounded outer corner of the eye (canthal web). The pictures on the right are after revision surgery with Dr. Massry to restore a regular, almond-shaped eye shape and to normalize the lower eyelid height.

In this case, Dr. Massry addressed two issues:

1. The retracted or pulled down lower lids, which gives the patient a wide-eyed appearance. (Note: Her almond-shaped eyes are back after surgery.)

2. Even more difficult to correct is the web on the outer corner of the eye (lateral canthus). Dr Massry has published on this – here is a link to his paper.

This patient is incredibly happy with the results of her lower eyelid retraction surgery with Dr. Massry.

As an expert in this procedure, Dr. Massry has written several publications on his technique. Here are two of them:
