Upper/lower Blepharoplasty - Poland

Hi,
I thought I would share this with you all as I have had a lot of help from reading all your fantastic journeys.


I always had saggy upper eyelids with fat above and below the eyes too.
I always felt and looked tired as my lids were weighing down on my eyeleashes. I decided enough was enough when people kept asking me if I was tired or if I had a swollen eye etc.


I looked into this on the internet and decided to travel to Poland to get the surgery. I wasn`t disappointed with my surgery at all, I was well looked after and everything went well, no pain at all even though it was only a local aneastetic, strange experience lol.


I am now 7 days after surgery and happy so far, apart from my left eye seems to show more white underneath the iris than the right, I`m hoping this is partly due to a blister in this area of the eye. I looked at older pics and have always had this anyway so I think I may be being too paranoid lol.

Update for today, 8th day. I had a very unhealthy...

Update for today, 8th day. I had a very unhealthy meal last night and woke up quite swollen this morning, but after icing the area it has calmed down again. So it seems, like people already said on here, that bad food makes a difference but its only temporary. I have took a photo to see if anyone can give me advice. I feel, or imagining lol, that the eye that is healing better has been stitched and pulled up slightly tighter at the outer edge than the other eye. Could I possibly massage the outer scar of the tighter eye to see if I can loosen it a it? Or am I being stupid lol. I know there is some swelling still which will change things but if anyone could help this would be great.

Well its now day 10 and things are moving on...

Well its now day 10 and things are moving on slowly but slight differences day to day lol. I need to stop looking in the mirror at it all the time hoping its all healed!!
I have started using bio oil yesterday to soften scars at outside of my eyes which will hopefully make them heal quicker. I also started massaging the left eye to hopefully lift the lower lid a little. I know its still swollen but I`m being impatient lol. I massage it upwards and also have started to squeeze my eye to tighten the muscle.
The only discomfort I have had is a little itching on my scars from time to time. Hope everybody is healing well :)

A quick update. i went back to work yesterday...

A quick update.
i went back to work yesterday exactly two weeks after surgery. I still had a bit of swelling, bruising on one eye and bit of scar showing at each side of outer eyes. I put on some dermablend to conceal it which i think helped a lot. I had a lot of different reactions lol. I had to tell people i had had an eye infection as i was still recovering cause I knew people would notice. Comments i got were, you look tired, you look younger, your eyes are swollen, you've lost weight twice lol and someone asked if id had my eyes done. I was very nervous going back to work but the reality is that people don't really pay that much attention and they don't care, so if anyone else is concerned at peoples reactions don't be. You might get the odd comment but then people forget all about it.

Here are my latest pics, still a bit of swelling...

Here are my latest pics, still a bit of swelling but I notice my scars are less bumpy and softer.

Update for 12th July

Hi all, I`ve not been on for a while so I thought I`d put up my pics from 3 months after the surgery. All my swelling has gone and the scars are not red anymore and healing very well.
I am very happy with the surgery and would recommend it to anyone.
