Bags Be Gone! - Edmonton, AB

Well, today is two days away from the day I've waited for, for so long! I am a 34 year old wife and mother of one. Due to health issues and genetics I've had bags for as long as I can remember...I'm so excited and nervous for my lower blepharoplasty with fat transfer! I am to the point that I "hide behind my glasses" to hide hide the bags... I feel/hope that this will restore my once beautiful eyes...ill keep you all posted on the surgery and recovery! Here goes nothing :)

Patiently waiting

Hi all....I'm still patiently waiting for June 17th...when I went on Kay 6th for my blepharoplasty my blood pressure was too high and had to be rescheduled for when an anesthesiologist is on site. So far I'm very impressed with Dr.Campbell and his team...not once did they seem annoyed or like I had waisted their time...they were very kind and patient.. In the mean time my son and I took a couple pics on Mother's Day :) hope you all had a good one!

Finally! Upper and lower lids done today..other than nausea feeling great...swelling and bruising of course. But finally on my way to not seeing puffy lids

Day 3

Today feeling not much pain..mostly from fat grafting and nausea from anesthetic
