Michelle's Story By Emilio Justo on December 10, 2018

Michelle's video

Michelle Tahtinen had never before worn mascara. Genetically inherited droopy eyelids had just become something that she assumed she had to live with.  That was before she met Founder & Medical Director Emilio M. Justo, M.D., who saw the dramatic improvement eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, would have on her life.

"When Dr. Justo told me I could use my insurance toward eyelid surgery, I was amazed and thrilled.  My mother also underwent eyelid surgery thanks to Dr. Justo, and we have both gained tremendous amounts of confidence - and a lot of vision - back."

Looking at her wedding pictures, Michelle says she barely recognizes herself before and after the procedure. 

"Dr. Justo really took the time to educate me, advocate for me, and perform a flawless surgery," Michelle added. "I would recommend that if your eyelids are making you tired, look older, impacting your vision or your lifestyle and confidence, that you go and see Dr. Justo at the Arizona Eye Institute."
