My 20th high school reunion was coming up and I had this procedure to freshen up. Puffy upper eyelids are one of the first signs of aging.
I did my homework on a surgeon and selected an excellent doctor. I had it done 10 days before Christmas several years ago. Thankfully I have glasses I could wear or I think people would have seen my eyes were still puffy.
It really wasn't painful or bad but when they pulled the thread out of my eyelid a couple of days after surgery, YIKES, that hurt! But I would certainly do it again and wouldn't let that stop you.
I am now 43 and people routinely tell me I look like I'm 10 years younger. I'm doing a little nips and tucks as I go along to say younger looking.
Make sure you have someone to drive you home and to look after you. It really was an easy recovery. It does take a year for the scars to just about disappear. It's been 6 years and I'm still thrilled with the results.
