Day 5 of revision and lowers

I have been researching upper eyelid surgery for over a year now and am very excited that I am only a week away from having the procedure.

I am a 45 yr old single mother of three, work full time, gym it about 3 to 5 times a week in an attempt to get into shape. I am a social drinker non smoker healthy eating type of girl but I constantly get told how tired I look and it is really frustrating me! I have hooded eyelids for a long time but they have seemed to have gotten a lot worse this last year. If surgery goes well will have my lower lids done when I have saved up for them
Feeling a little nervous but I can't wait.

I will be driving myself up to Canberra and will stay over night in the hospital next door to the Drs day surgery.

I am sharing my story as I couldn't find much about this Dr online.

In my dealings with Dr Tonks to date has been a good experience for me. I have found him to be extremely professional, friendly and address questions and concerns in a matter of fact manner (which i love).

Day 3, eyes feeling a little tight from the swelling, but no pain apart from that. I notice that my eyelashes are sticking straight out and don't curl up? I am guessing its because of the swelling and will fix its self soon??!? Taking arnica, silica, and something that sounds like bromelian and behaving like a sloth! Itching to go to the gym and to clean my house! Omg what is happening to me??

Day 6, stitches out today! What a relief. One eye is very red and has a very small lump near the inner corner of the eye, slightly painful to touch and it hurt to have the stitch pulled out, ouchie! Nurse said it should heal up and gave me an antibiotic eye ointment to use if not better by Friday. I was expecting to see Dr Tonks but he wasn't there. I drove over 5 hours today so that I could see him and be assured that everything is ok.

Very very happy with results so far, most of the swelling has gone, still a little under my eyes, scars are barely noticeable for me. Life is back to normal less than 10 days from surgery.

Now for my lower lids

Going back on 19th September o have my lower eyelids done, can't wait!

Lowers now done

Went back to my surgeon to have my lower eyelids done. I was experiencing a heaviness with my left upper eyelid. My Dr assessed my eye and graciously offered to do a revision to my left upper while I was there for my lowers. Surgery was quick and painless, 16 hours later, no pain still.

Day 3 absolutely stoked with my results!

Hardly any pain or swelling. Dr place me under a light after my procedure for 15 min. It is suppose to assist the healing process. I think it has definitely made a difference. It's a new machine they are trialling.

Day 4 - stitches out back at work

I took my own stitches out this morning, saved me a 6 hour round trip to Canberra. Back at work and feeling great, slight black eye on right eye only

Love it!

Day 5, feel great, back to work yesterday and only a few. Comments about my bruise in which I was very creative with the answers. Lol
