Well, I had my upper and lower Bleph along with a chemical peel under my eyes done on March 13 (two days ago at this writing) and so far I look horrible. The swelling on the upper lid is pretty severe and painful. I did the low salt diet and cut out all the foods and drugs that could possibly cause bleeding (berries, garlic, fish oil, vil E, aspirin, Motrin, etc) and started taking bromelain and eating fresh pineapple 2-3 weeks prior so I was hoping for a better outcome. I have also been taking Arnica Montana 3 x daily since 3 days prior, icing constantly, and sleeping in the recliner with my head elevated. I have read the 2-3 day is usually the worst for swelling. I hope tomorrow will be better. I will post pictures once I am feeling better.

The chemical peel finally peeled off last night and the bruises are starting to yellow. Having the sutures removed (yesterday) have really helped with the discomfort, but they still feel tight and a little painful from the swelling although the swelling is a lot less today. I am still icing a few times a day as it feels good. I am also still sleeping on the sofa recliner to keep my head elevated. I might try to move back to the bedroom tonight.

I had started an Obagi blender with retin-a regimen after my follow up last week but have decided to stop until a later date as the peeling and flaking was making the cover up makeup look horrible. I only need one problem at a time thank you!

I am very pleased with how I look so far but I am still concerned about scarring on the upper eyelids. It is easily camouflaged with make up. however, without makeup, i feel the scars are very noticeable. They are still red, raised and a little tender--especially at the outer corners. I have been using BioCorneum faithfully twice a day for about three weeks and I am not sure I am seeing much difference but I will continue as I figure it couldn't hurt. A word of warning if you ever use this product, be careful not to get it in your eyes as it really burns and you will end up having to flush your eyes for a few minutes.

My Doctor: G. Wesley Price, MD
I did extensive research of the procedure and the best doctors in the area. Dr. Price consistently was listed as one of the top docs in the area and the country. He also listed high on customer satisfaction I went to see 4 surgeons in the area and I felt the most comfortable with the doctor, staff, and location of the clinic.
