I'm over 55 and had signficant eye bags and loose upper skins on the eyelids...causing me to look tired. I wanted to look the way I feel - energetic and fun.

I had upper/lower eye surgery on tuesday - how long do I continue to ice the eyes. Also, do I remove the crusting along the stitch line or leave it alone?

I know it's been awhile since you posted but if you read this, could you please tell me how you're doing now? I went for a consultation today and made an appt for the end of the month with a Dr in Nashville. However, I'm doing as much research as possible before actually committing. I'll try looking her up but if I can't find her could you please tell me where she's located. M'boro? Nashville?? Thanks~

You should defiantly talk to your Dr first, I stopped icing after 2 days and the crust comes off on its own when you wash, wipe your eyes

Thanks for sharing your experience. Here's a thread to help answer one of your questions (I'm not sure about the other): Icing eyelid to help heal after Eyelid surgery?

Good luck with your recovery!
