- 16 Feb 2009
I had droopy upper eyelid as age catches up and it runs in the family. The thought of doing bleph was so scary at first. I did lots of internet research and thanks to all reviewers in RealSelf, in a way you guys helped me make this decision.
I finally did it on Jan 09 2009. It was so painless that I didn't take any medication at all after the procedure. The first 2 days I had swelling in my upper eyelid but on 3rd to 8th day, the swelling went down to my lower lids and cheeks. It swelled & bruised so much that it was almost level with my nose. On top of that my left eye turned out smaller than the right. At this point I got very nervous and worried if this would be a permanent look.
However, after about 2 weeks the bruises and swelling subsided almost completely. Now it's more than one month. I look completely different, so much younger and it boosted my self confidence. It was the best $2800.00 I've spent on myself. I wished I had done it earlier.
