So after saving extensively I opted after lots of research to visit dr satankova at iscare in prague to help my rid of my very aging upper and lower eyebags.
I am now 8 days post operative and feel very depressed. The upper eyelid had to be cut way under lash line, my eyelids remain very swollen...

day 15

my eyes dont look much better. i think that the lower line is horrible and feel it wont go as now it is a fold which make undereye look like i have 2 sets of bags.
i am praying that it gets better. will make appt to see my own gp as worried

It looks on your before photo, that you had festoon bags. My PS told me they were the hardest to do anything about. He said the only way to get rid of them was to cut them out like your surgeon has done. However you are left with two scars under your eyes. That's better than a bag, right? The scars will fade, and you can try to cover them with makeup?

You will be ok, Eyes take so long to get back to normal, it can take up to 6 months before the swelling and glassy look goes. keep positive x

The swelling is the worst. It can take up to two weeks to settle down. I just went through this and you can't judge the outcome at all. It takes at least a month before you get a idea of how it might look. I know it's hard to be patient but that's the only think you can do.

Thanks tommy, it's the worst thing mentally just thinking it won't improve! Also I'm worried about the lower incision line and that because it's so low that the scars will turn in to a fold and I will then have two lower eye bags on each eye, I'm not sure if the pads underneath are swelling or just more bags :( Thankyou for the reply as real self there are people in same or similar situations :) x

I'm sure your surgeon knew what she was doing. I have never seen bags removed like that before. I think it will be fine.

It's only 8 days! That's no time at all. Be patient, I'm sure it will be worth the wait. By 6 weeks you will feel very different!!

I really don't know what I would do without this forum, surgery is scary especially on the face, it's taking a gamble but I really do trust dr satankova and the reviews on the forum and am glad for the kind words, thAnkyou xx

Did she cut the undereye bags out on your undereye skin. Way below the lash line? Is that what the scar is under your eye? If so I have never seen that before? I'm sure the scar will fade, and a small scar is better than a bag, right? Your upper eyes look great!

Hopefully, and yes she said it was because they were very bad and that was the only way she could do it :( fingers crossed they are tiny scars! X

I'm sure you will hardly notice them when healed. They will just be fine white lines, you can cover with makeup.

Very emotional time. But time is what we need. You are still early post op. Good luck and try to avoid the magnifying mirror, just stresses us more. Take care.
