I'm going in for revision - but not allowing them to touch my eyes. My eyes are wrecked. It's like I now have an allergy or something which makes the upper and mostly the lower lids brightly red and inflamed - especially if I exercise or when I wash my face. "water/moisture"? What's this about?? Great - and very attractive! My left eyes is always crying out in distress - what have I done. Suggestion - never, never, never have any work done on your eyes!!! Anything can happen. Actually, I was told by a couple of doctors that they'd seen worse. Comforting. Don't have extra money to pursue corrections. What they'll do now, is just tighten my facelift, which will pull the eyes up at the corners, that are pulling down, which will give me some relief. My prayer is that they don't overdo it, because I really don't want to be one of "those" that people can tell had work done. Right now, it's pretty natural, cause it's hard to tell they did anything. They we're pretty conservative. I know this doctor can do a good job - I no longer expect perfection - now I know when flesh is involved, each heals differently, and there are no guarantees. It's risky period. I want the tightening - I believe it will help my eyes - but a revision for my eyes I can't do, because that's where real problems come in from what I've learned. Also, can anyone tell me about lip augmentation "fascia"? Thanks.

My Doctor: name not provided
He's a nice man - has good credentials. I believe no one should ever touch your eyes, no matter that they're board certified, unless they are occuplastic surgeons. Even then, there's no guarantee. It's risky. My eyes aren't okay. They have scars at each end and are pulling down on the corners. I know he did his best. I guess you get what you pay for mostly. The chief surgeon has taken over my case and will be doing the revision. I have confidence in him. I'm still scared - the pain really hurts for a long time. Emotionally it's devestating while you agonize whether you've made a mistake or not. However, people that see me now, think I look pretty good. We're always more critical of ourselves than others. But, there is room for improvement in my opinion, which is why I want the revision of the facelift - because it could have been better - I just pray it's not overdone - then I'll have to live with that decision. That's the hard part. When we do it to ourselves - and why? For vanity's sake. Old is old. Why fight it? Why do we hate old? Cause it's not pretty. Is phony pretty? Have a good day and be very careful!!! Eyes - don't mess with them!!!
