Lower Eye May2012 - Australia

had a bag under eyes wouldnt say it was bad but not something i liked , so i need a fresh look as i looked tried and puffy weary.
im glad i did do it thought i would take the risk ,down time for me was a good 2 half weeks back at work on my 3 week. still a bit swollen, i still sleep raised up a bit to help swelling but i guess time now is my medicine , as it can take up to 6mths but i do believe it was a good job done by my surgeon , i was a scared at first with the bruising and swelling thinking OMG what have i done.. didnt think i was going to get back to normal , so i tried so hard not to keep looking in the mirror and feeling unsure about the whole op.as time progressed the changes started to take place and felt ok this maybe might not be as bad as i thought , attached now are some pictures of my journey up to date hope this will help some one out there .

ok all here r a few pictures as days went on i think im in my 4 day here as i up load a few more its going into my week 2 ... when i did put on makeup i think i did mentioned before about two and half weeks into my op i put make up on .. i also believe how you look after yr surgery as i bathed my eyes 4 times a day with saline to keep them clean with gazes clothes an applying the antibiotic eye cream. its been now 3 weeks i still sleep up but not as high as i first did, as my eyes are still swollen a tated some days are fine then some days they look more swollen ,and hoping my self as a person heals well.so i hope these pictures help anyone considering or have just done the surgery that these pictures may give some idea of looks and healing process.

my doctor was amazing the professional manner and the understanding of my needs was listening to what i wanted was taken into consideration and worked into the method of the surgery , the after follow ups where outstanding and the step by step care for me and care at home where explained down pat. i do recommend this surgeon .

i want to share one of abraham hicks' lyrics.. i've just found..
When all is forgotten
When all is forgiven
As we learn to let go
Of old thoughts and patterns
Of old hurts remaining
As life begins to flow

Quit smoking yes! Smoking can age you. Also, if you're going to have surgery it's best not to smoke as that can hinder healing times.

Hate to be a downer, but it sounds like you might need to get some therapy to help with your depression and that you might have unrealistic expectations for what the surgery can do for you. Obs I don't know everything going on in your life, but it's just what I am getting from your posts. Good luck.

Lower blue mountains but I'm actually traveling to Brisbane for the surgery...Dr David Chin will do my op...he seems really good and has great credentials? I postponed surgery as I have an overseas trip coming up and I didn't want to have the op before I went...so I will keep you posted once I have the surgery. Hope you are doing really well!

Hey there face and eyes... Sorry I was not notified of you response...hence my late reply.
I'm travelling up to Brisbane because I am also having some stem cell injections at the same time for wrinkles etc and apparently Dr Chin is the only plastic surgeon that does this in Australia. I have family up there so its not a problem. I have just turned 60. I will post a pic closer to surgery time, then I will post pics post op. I'm a little nervous but I think it will make a big difference!. My decision was based on the fact that i wanted to look a little fresher and younger without having a face lift :) would live to see some recent pics if you! Cheers

hi susie how are you , hope all is going well , did you end up doing the stem cell injections if so how did you go .. i have heard about something like that but unsure how it works , what difference does show i would love to know more about it what can you tell me ..Wow 60 you go girl when i hit 60 i am sure i would be doing more than i anticipated why not i say if you can preserve what you have for a bit longer why not .. would love to see a pic on how you went hope to hear from you soon . Face and eyes x

Hey there face and eyes
I have my stem cell injections end October as I am going away beforehand and need time to heal....
If you Google Dr David Chin -advanced plastic Surgery it will explain it on his website... I can't wait even though I've been told I look very young for my age, I would still like to do this just to look a little fresher, especially around the upper lip area... If you give me your private email, I will send a pic of me now... And then I will post pics after I've had the procedure. Would luv to see updated pics of you now?
