Been looking on this site and other sites for some...

Been looking on this site and other sites for some time now and decided to take the next step and get my Lower eyelid surgery , I was using normal creams but still not happy with the heavy lines and crepey skin in the lower eye area , anyway the experience with the Doctor was great , he was easy going and put my mind to ease I felt no discomfort at all, I was a bit sore for 3-4 days but I think that was due to the Chemical Peel , the stitches have mostly dissolved now apart from a small bit left which should leave soon , I will post before pictures and when i get the chance some progress pictures thank you

2 days post Op

As you can see from the picture swelling is their and everything feels tight at present

2 days Post Op side

5 days Post Op

The peeling is completed and I feel a lot better still some swelling but feeling good about the ways things are progressing at the moment

7 days Post Op

Well I think after this post we are up to date , as per the pictures the stitches have all but a small piece vanished , I still have a bit of bruising under the right eye but hopefully that will go in a few days , the scars are a bit ropey still which is to be expected at this stage if anyone could give me some advise what to use on them to help smooth them out it would be appreciated , I am happy at the moment but I did have heavy lines under my eyes and that was the reason I went for the operation , if they are not up to my expectations then I will take advise on another procedure possibly another peel if required , thank you all and hope to get some feedback

16 days Post Op

Well I got 2 answers from Doctors on this site concerning the pimples on the incision line , I have not been back to my surgeon as its a full day travel , anyway this morning I could see the head on the pimple clearly I just touched it and removed the contents , their was a small piece of suture as well so I just removed that , I think it did not dissolve , here is the picture left eye with pimples I hope it gets better otherwise I will plan a trip to Belgium to have it checked the right eye is healing good at this time , will update in a couple of days

21 Days Post Op

Hi All

Well I am 21 days Post Op and things seem to be getting better with the left eye , the incision line is still a bit Ropey but hopefully it will clear in time , I did expect to see less wrinkles but I did have heavy lines but over all they do look much better , I am thinking of having CO2 Laser Treatment to Full Face and neck in the near future so that will help with the wrinkles , any feedback would be appreciated

Any comments Appreciated

Lower Eyes and Chemical Peel 26 days Post Op

Just an update its now 26 days since my surgery everything seems to be going good I think , apart from the pimples that was on the incision on the left eye which seems to be getting better each am alright , I was hoping that the wrinkle lines would be less but I have to take my age into account and they were heavy , I will probably have another peel or have laser surgery later on the full face and neck anyway , hope my review is helping someone

Thanks

Hi Sorry not answering your post earlier been busy , I had a TCA 20% Peel that was the recommendation from the Doctor , All i can remember waking up and my lower eyes feeling tight the next day the skin was dark under the eyes and it felt stingy , after a few days the skin peeled and from their on its just got better , I have been keeping out of the sun wearing sun glasses and sun screen for the last few months and basically taking care of my eyes and skin with Syncrovet cream , I can have another chemical peel if i wish but at the moment I am happy with the results , Thank you for your nice comments as well D

Thanks for your post, it was very useful. Did you have the peel right after the lower bleph surgery? I honestly couldn't see any bruisings or redness in your post-op photos. Your skin must be very good. And you look great after the lower bleph!!

I think the lines are way less noticeable/not even there in your post-op pics versus your pre-op pics.  You look amazing!

You literally can't tell you had a procedure, you're healing so well! You just look way younger and not tired. Fabulous result.

You are looking good ! What type of chemical peel did your doctor use? And what was the strenght of the peel?

Hi DatSCurve I will be honest I did not even ask him what type of peel it was , it was a last minute decision due to the heavy lines , when I woke up I was all done and I just thought about food mmmm

Wow you are healing really quick!  Thanks for sharing.  Was the chemical peel just under your eyes or on your whole face?
