Delayed Gratification: Your Superpower to Success

Magical Gala Moment By Emilio Justo on March 22, 2017

Eyelid Surgery Headlines Gala

It was a magical moment for a local woman as she walked out to a cheering crowd at Arizona Eye Institute & Cosmetic Laser Center.

"You look beautiful!"

The voice came from the gathering crowd that looked on as Vickie Miresse walked straight out into her audience just moments after undergoing upper eyelid surgery.

The entire procedure was streamed on TV live during her surgery as part of the Institute's 28th Anniversary Gala, which attracted about 500 guests for tours, demonstrations and celebration.

"There was no pain at all," Vickie told the crowd as they got a close- up look at her immediate surgery results, following a CO2 laser procedure performed by Arizona Eye Institute Founder and Medical Director, Emilio M. Justo, M.D.  "They held my hand the entire time."

She looked about in awe, adding, "My field of vision has just opened up!"

Days later, Vickie said that her life had changed with her newfound peripheral vision, that had been restored during the laser upper eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty. Dr. Justo removed excess skin that was blocking her view.  "I feel like I have such a wider vision. I don't feel like I have to squint to see anymore. I used to kind of push my face up so that I could see better."

The surgery also restored her eye's original beautiful contours, and has inspired her to look into contact lenses and to wear makeup more often, she said.

"As an eye physician and cosmetic surgeon, I have the unique honor of having performed thousands of upper and lower eyelid surgeries," said Dr. Justo, "and successfully getting the majority of the upper eyelid procedures authorized by insurance providers."

"I want to thank everyone who came out to celebrate our 28th Anniversary Gala. I welcome anyone to come see if we can help you utilize your current insurance to improve your vision and feel better about yourself, with upper eyelid surgery."
