Had Quick lift and upper eyelids done today. I am 60 years old. I am currently in a great deal of pain and am taking vicodin more than recommended. I have bandages around my head so can't see how it all looks. My eyes are swollen but I seem to have lids again. Worried about trying to sleep without being in my usual stomach position.

Day 3 l

11 days

11 days post op. Bruising and swelling gone. My ears hurt and it is hard to chew. Like my new face!

The doctor has a lot of experience and I liked her a lot. She explained everything as she did it and helped me relax. Hope the results are great.

How are you now? Has the strangled feeling eased off?

I am now planning to get lower lids done. I don't really have bags; they are more sunken looking. Couldn't afford to do it all at once. Once my face is paid for, doing lower lids for sure. Then I will be finished fo good.

It is now three months since my surgery. I love my face. I find it so interesting that absolutely no one seemed to notice a difference. I see a whole new person in the mirror. I no longer avoid looking at myself. I feel 10 years younger. So worth it!

No more Wattle and Bevtex are both me. Somehow I have two accounts here. Can anyone tell me how to post pictures?

It has now been a week since the procedure. My eyes look great. I have lids! My neck is quite bruised but not my face or eyes. I can go out and look normal, by wearing a scarf. Still have the strangulation feeling. The doctor says this could last a couple of weeks. It is rather uncomfortable but not really painful. So far so good.

This strangulation feeling would most likely drive me insane, a definite issue with me. Thank you for telling us this at least we have full understanding and possibilities that might occur.

I had my face, neck and eyes done. My eyes and face are ok but I feel as if I have been strangled. I consider it more than "discomfort". It is quite hard to sleep propped up on my back so I am tired. I think it is going to look good. Hard to tell with he swelling.
