66 Years Old Having Eyelid Surgery - Bethesda, Maryland

I had outpatient eyelid surgery by Dr. Roger...

I had outpatient eyelid surgery by Dr. Roger Oldham in an outpatient surgical center. I had absolutely no pain afterwards, not even a headache. I felt as if I could just get in my car and drive home afterwards (wasn't allowed, of course!) I took no pain meds afterward, just had the expected swelling and bruising after the procedure. Even these weren't bad - I used glasses with a tint in them and no one even noticed unless I brought it to their attention. Most of the swelling was gone in a week or so -- the under eye bruising lasted a bit longer, but I just used makeup to conceal most of it.
This was a very easy procedure.
I am one week post op for blepharoplasty and I am 53 the difference is awesome. Best wishes to you. My bruising was serious but I bruise easy so no surprise.
Hope you continue to post how the healing progresses and what you're needing to do to follow instructions. Do you have a photos? Would love to see... because I'm almost the same age. I imagine it's different than what 40somethings achieve. Thanks!
I'm sorry - I do not have a photo. I don't think there's much of a difference between 40's and 60's -- there are so many other factors which enter into the results. I should also add that this was my second eyelid lift from this dr. - the first one was done 16-17 years ago. Both showed similar results and I always tell people that if you don't expect perfection - just that there will be improvement - you won't be disappointed. This is one of the easiest cosmetic surgeries -- and because there had been improvements/changes in the anesthesia procedures over the 16-17 years from when I had the first one done, I felt much better much quicker. Best of Luck to you!

I have nothing but positive things to say about Dr. Oldham He was very specific in telling me what to expect, was very careful to measure, re-measure and took as much time as I needed to answer any and all questions. His office staff was also very helpful with scheduling and other aspects - both pre-surgically, as well as post-surgically. I would not hesitate to utilize Dr. Oldham for other procedures.
