I had 5 procedures done in the same day, my desire for change and repair was greater than my fear of surgery. I am so pleased I did it. If your not needing it that much then don't do it. The sedation is great and so is the pain medication, thank God for all that

It is normal to feel scared before surgery, at least I was, but tell you what immediately you are given the local anesthesia and sedation all your worries should calm down. It is really not as bad and fearful as you think. Don't worry God will see you through. Good luck!

Glad you decided to start a review about your experience!  I think it is normal to feel scared before surgery- you don't know what to expect, it is like a big black hole.  I tried not to think about it the week before and focused on eating healthy, drinking lots and lots of water, taking Arnica Montana and Bromaline, etc.  The actual surgery was over before I knew it.  Good luck!

Jill i saw your pictures and the profile and i wanted it to tell you that you look great.I just hope that with the local anesthesia and sedation i wont feel anything or we awake....because i don't want that.I know i sound like a kid but i am panichar. And i feel more scared because i will do 2 things the same day so maybe that's why.

Thanks!  Overall I'm really happy with the results and glad I did it.  I still have days where I see bags but I'm at peace with all of it.

I was most scared about the anesthesia (I had a general anesthesia).  I think no matter which type of sedation you have it can be the scariest thing about the actual surgery.  I remember being in the pre-op room with the gown on and an IV in just sitting there staring at the door and waiting and just having panicked thoughts going through my head- what am I doing?  what if I die? - you know- all those worst case scenario thoughts.  But in the end I knew I'd found a really good surgeon and had faith that everything was going to be alright.  Deep breaths... Positive attitude...  They help :)
