Had the surgery this morning. The only pain so far is my throat from the oxygen. Keeping eyes iced but swelling is growing! Hope it turns out good! :) I keep looking at a couple other posters reviews pictures to compare. I am hoping the bags are gone and I believe it will boost my self confidence, I will be updating frequently.

It is now Thursday (surgery Monday) Eyes and tongue still numb. Still no pain. I really want to go lay out in pool. I may put on a hat and shades and go out for a bit. I hope the results are what I was going for!!! :)

Well its now Saturday, stitches almost dissolved and Im starting to inspect myself in the mirror and think "oh crap I can see the bags are still going to be there!" Hopefully Im wrong :) Swelling is going down. I must add, my cat of 16 years passed away Tuesday evening so I have been crying every day. Im sure that hasnt helped with the swelling. I have been trying to stay busy. I need to run to hobby lobby for some fabric so Im gonna put on my big shades and make a dash!! Have a great weekend.

This is almost one month post. Still have swelling. Dr says heat and humidity slow down the swelling, well I live in Houston and just spent a week in Mexico so if its true maybe that explains why I still have swelling. I hope its just swelling!!

Almost 5 weeks. Still swelling on the right and bruising on the left. But even with that its better than before!

Its been 3 and 1/2 months now. Im SO glad I did it!!! My right eye still has some pulling on the inside but i have a follow up this week and he will probably inject it. He also said if he needed to remove a little more on the outer edges he could do that in his office, I will wait several more months before I decide on that.

Im at 5 months and went in for a follow up yesterday. I still have a little pouch of scar tissue on lower right. He said he could go back in and try to clean it up but Im not sure if its worth a risk of more scar tissue. It does pull at some angles and makes my right eye look bigger. Also in March im going in to get a little more fat removed from the outter right eye. I am SO SO SO glad I did this.
