Discount on Eyelid Surgeries – Awaken Your Eyes

Oct 27, 2009 Author: Susy Hwang | Filed under: Beauty & Health, Spa Savings

I know that in times like this society places a seemingly high standard on beauty, models that are larger than a size four get terminated from their posts. Definitely a bittersweet story. I on the other hand totally concur that reaching those lofty heights of beauty is somewhat unnatural, but being a savvy shopper, discounts are meant to be published. After all, it’s all in the name.

Mention & Susy Hwang and get $500 off any SURGICAL procedures ONLY. Dr. Alex Liu is also nominated as the best cosmetic surgeon in Torrance, CA.

Click here to hear his nomination. Dr. Alex Liu – Best of LA

“Another Oculoplastic specialist insisted that I had to have surgery to correct my abnormal eyelid position but I was scared because he told me that it was only 50% that I would look normal even though he claimed he did more of these surgeries than anyone in LA. Dr. Liu told me that we could try a non-surgical approach, something that no one else had ever mentioned to me. Not only was it much safer than surgery, it gave me the result I wanted; Dr. Liu not only alleviated my fears of looking deformed but his creative approach made me look great! Thank you Dr. Liu!”
