I chose this PS mainly due to excellent reviews. As you can see, my bags are absolutely terrible. I am hopeful that the surgery will give me a refreshed and rested look. My surgery is scheduled for May 23 and i am quite nervous. I will be flying to Czech Republic from Ireland where I live. The surgery will be performed under local with oral sedation. Has anyone had any experience with straight local and intra operative pain? My doc said he will need my co- operation during the op for the best outcome hence no general or sedation

Alrite, i am two weeks away from my surgery and nerves are really kickin in at this stage. I really have to stop researching complications LOL. Flights and holidays are booked and I am ready to go. I am scared shitless of pain during the procedure as I will be awake for the whole time....

Day of treatment
I had my lower blepharoplastry two hours ago. It was all done under local anaesthetic and tbh it was quite comfortable. There were 2 brief moments when i had some pain and my PS injected some more lidocaine. Overall great experience. I should have done that years ago. I have very little discomfort now and don't really need any pain meds. To everyone who has a choice between general or local anaesthetic; go for local
Day 2 post op
As expected, some serious swelling kicked in; i really hope that this is indeed swelling and not the bloody bags moving in again :). No pain at all, I ice my eyes every few hours (roughly 3 times a day) and also take some pills prescribed by my PS to get rid of the swelling. I am amazed how easy the procedure/recovery have been so far. I am hoping for a good result since i loved my eyes straight after the surgery
Stitches are out :)
It is day 5 today and got my stitches out. The process was relatively painless and quick. I think i am recovering well. Bags are defo gone. I am really happy with my PS work :)
It s been a week now and i am sooo happy with the results. Shud have done that ages ago. The doc is absolutely brilliant - highly recommended to any members from Europe!!! I cant believe that the incision lines are practically invisible after a week!-. I have no make up in the picture. To sum up the experience, no pain during or after the procedure even though only local anaesthetic was used. A visit to the dentist can be more uncomfortable - i mean it! The recovery was a breeze - i was partying with my friends 48 hours post the surgery, i didnt need a single painkiller during the recovery and i am genuinely a wimp lol
