Sleepy No More - New York, NY

I was motivated to get this surgery after a few years of the puffiness under my eyes getting worse. I'm a 35 year old single guy and NYC and I've become a bit of a homebody over the years (and in one of the greatest cities in the world that I"m lucky enough to live and work in) because I just look tired all the time. I don't feel very confident.

I've considered this surgery for about 6 months.

My goal after surgery is to get out to more social and volunteer settings

6 days before surgery and I'm quite nervous.

Hi sleepless_nyc, I sure hope you have a successful surgery. However, if you're having serious second thoughts about going through with it, trust your gut instincts! Even if you lose money. Did you try temporary fillers before deciding to have surgery?

Ok, night before the surgery. I've had a busy week of traveling to visit my parents, prepping my apartment, and puppy sitter since I live alone. Hopefully I didn't tire myself out too much. I'm still quite nervous and looking forward to getting this done and over with. I've posted a few before photos. I'll post after photos as soon as I'm able to. Wish me luck!

Sleepless_nyc, Hope all has turned out well with your surgery. Look forward to seeing your results. Before long you will be out and about, volunteering, socializing, and doing all things that make you happy and complete. Thanks for sharing.

*yawn* after a little over 24 hours of laying on my back and icing my face I have very little swelling, but my eyes look a little droopy. I've avoided sunlight, I'm keeping my apartment pretty dark, and when I need to look at my mobile phone or laptop I put my dark sunglasses on and keep the usage very brief. I'll add 2 more photos to my review.

Ok so it's been 4 days and the results are pretty shocking. It looks like I never had puffy eyes at all! I'm so relieved and happy. My eyes are still a little bloodshot, but I have no brusing or any other side affects of the surgery. And to think it's only going to get better as the weeks go by leaves me...speechless. I'll include another photo with this post, and I'll probably just update weekly now.

You look awesome! Congratulations for choosing a good surgeon. I´ve seen his videos, he appears to be a real specialist on eyelids

How did you decide on Dr Prasad? He has multiple videos on you tube and presents himself well. Were you referred?

Just under 2 weeks and I'm feeling pretty good. There's still a little redness on my eyeballs, most of not all of the swelling is gone. I'm the happiest I've been in a long time. I'm just waiting for the doctor tells me I can get back to physical activity now. Tomorrow is my follow up appointment. I'll update again with his comments on my recovery.
