Paul E. Garland, performed upper and lower eyelid surgery on both of my eyes. He sliced the muscle below my left lower eyelid. I bled profusely for three days. The sliced muscle be gorged with blood and swollen to about the size of a table tennis ball. This sliced eyelid has separated from my eyeball to the extent that it sags completely away from the eyeball. His FOLLOW-UP, "wait 90 days then we will decide what to do. It has been (as of this writing) 30 days since he sliced the muscle and each day the sagging worsens and now the other lower (right side) is beginning to sag. All the follow-up instructions have been "ice and keep icing the eyelids until you can't stand to do it any more"
