Hey everyone , Ive been reading the reviews on the site for a while and finally decided after a year to have surgery on my lower eyelids. They have always had bags , but now that im older they look worse, so I found a doctor and my date is 7/24. Im still nervous but relieved that i found a soultion.

oh wow

oh crap today is the day..well dang that caught me off guard.. what to do what to do...

So..

First things first! Ill like to thank GOD for allowing me to go through this and to allow things to be going great so far.
Secondly ill like to think everyone one real self. Your stories helped me in so many ways and I pray that GOD blesses each and everyone of you.
No that that's out the way;)
I woke up the am of the surgery and thought I'm not ready!!
I'm not going to do it! I tried to convience myself everyone has something they don't like about themselves whether it be nose, eyes, ears, hair or lack of it.
That didnt work though , lol. So I went to the hospital and signed the forms and got in my gown.
Even then when the doctor came in I was like I'm not going to do it! But I took one last pic in my bed at the hospital and said that's why I'm doing it and I relaxed.
Or maybe it was the anti anxiety pills!
Anyway I went totall under so I was not awake at all in the surgery. That's what I recommend to anyone just cause you wake up and you are done. And I think being Awkake in surgery would be scary!
When I came to there was no pain. This is 24 hours later and no pain. I really didn't swell up or bruise.
That makes me wonder if I actually had anything done.!!
Jk. My friend and the doctor says it looks great!
I haven't liked at my face yet. I'm avoiding mirrors for about 2 days then ill see. But I took pics just for you guys to help you all make a decision. My advice to anyone is to pray and let GOD guide your choice! All said I'm happy I did it and ill post pics in a few days! If anyone has question please email me!! I want to return the good information to others here!
Now I'm going back to sleep. Ill post pics soon!

rx4uz, sorry to be bothering you with this but I am new to doing my research. Can you please give me the name of the procedure the Dr did? Did he just move fat around or did you have any cutting? I hope I'm asking the right question. Your eyes look really good, Dr did a good job and I just want to know what procedure to ask for. Thanks for sharing your story.

Looks great, its amazing looking at the before and after how much the eye bags were a distraction to your beautiful smile, no distraction now you look wonderful!

Wow! Great results did you have fat repositioned or did you have it all removed. I'm still trying to get the courage to move forward with my surgery. You look great!

Wonderful! No bruising! That's great! I know you are loving your results so far!

Wow you look amazing and you are still in the thick of the post-op swelling!  Bravo!  Ignore mirrors for the next couple months, it is going to take a long time for all the swelling to go away.  That is my best piece of advice for a lower bleph :)  Keep us posted on your healing progress!

You look great!! What a difference you should be soo happy! I just had an upper Bleph on the 17th, close family say they can see a big difference. I am not looking in the mirror too much these days, just had my stitches out, so life is getting better.

You already look great, but like you, it does not matter if others think you look great the way you are, you have to do what makes you feel good about your appearance . I plan to have eyelid surgery before then end of the year; I sm still lookin for a doctor. I look forward to you post-surgery pics. God Bless! Take care!

good luck ill keep you in my prayers . the only piece of advise I can offer is to get and oculoplastic doctor. They only do eyes, so they would have more experience than a doctor that does breast, tummy tucks and etc.

It's almost that time for you! I thought my surgery day would never come. I had almost NO PAIN. I don't remember much about the 5 or so hours after the surgery, just that I was hungry and was talking a bunch of jibberish and my kids were laughing at me lol! I was up and around by day two. Just remember ICE and ELEVATE!

I agree with what Angie has said, it's easy to find a flaw and then that is all you see. I wish you luck with your surgery, I'm sure you'll be very happy. Although if you were my husband I'd never let you mess with a face that pretty lol!
