In today’s episode, find out which procedures are most – and least – likely to leave you with a botch job, along with the 411 on a newer Brazilian Butt Lift coming down the pike, fat transfers and Alice’s best tips for finding a practitioner you can trust in the rare event something does go awry.

In Part 2 of this two-part special all about eyes, we’re joined by Manhattan-based, board-certified cosmetic surgeon Dr. Lara Devgan to chat blepharoplasty, thread lifts, plasma pens and so.much.more. And while we can’t disclose exactly who’s part of her celebrity clientele (trust us, she’s booked and busy!), we can divulge that the top doc has racked up nearly 400,000 Instagram followers thanks to her spot-on handiwork that leaves patients looking FRESH AF.

Dr. Devgan picks up where those eye creams and dermatological treatments can’t, breaking down the cost, pain-factor and everything else to expect starting with the cat eye look seen on the likes of Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner. Plus, you’ll learn everything there is to know about treating dark, undereye hollows with fat transfer vs. tear trough fillers; the #glowdown on surgical solutions for puffy, undereye bags; and what the difference is between a brow lift vs. an eye lift for hooded eyes that droop with aging. Plus, tune in to the end to find out which popular eye procedures you should avoid – even when others may be singing their praises.

Dr. Lara Devgan, who has not treated Bella Hadid, explains the procedure behind the popular cat eye-lift look seen on many in young Hollywood.
