I am a 51 yr old mom of 7. In the last few years I quit smoking, began "clean eating"started running 5-10 k every other day.
Joined boot camp 3X a week began yoga so I'm a 7 day a week work out girl.
I've have lost approx. 30+ pounds. I am in the best shape of my life!
But still everytime I see a pic of myself or look in a store mirror that has glories can't lighting I am reminded of my ugly under eye bags.
I know it may sound frivolous but it screams ugly too me. People have commented "oooo you look tired!" Or "are you sick?"
That in my head translates to you look like crap.
My hope is the surgeon can eliminate the bags!

It's day 9 postoperative.
Still have bruising. Tried to wear liquid foundation ( HD from Sephora )and it covers the discoloration quite well- but I have to say I would rather be makeup free right now. My eyes need to be more healed.
I ran 3 k for the first time since surgery yesterday and today outside on soft snow road. No difference or damage that I can see.

5 weeks post op here.
I am happy with my surgery.
I do still have raised bumps on the outside bottom corners of my eyes.
I know I need more time and any weird glitch can be fixed.
At times I get tremors under right eye.
I am still happy I got this done- especially when I look back at my before pic.

Barely think about it anymore. I'm going in for a wee adjustment on ins side. Other than that this was so totally worth it!
Be brave!

It's Almost A Year Post-Op!

It's coming up to the one year mark!
I don't regret having upper and lower bleph done. Best decision ever.
I do have to go back for a wee bit of tweaking. Dr is not completely happy with the little bulge/ mark under my left eye. I couldn't care less- the wretched bags are gone.
I'm happy!
