First 5 Days - Washington, DC
I am 5 days into my recovery from upper eyelid...
Loving my eyes
The office staff and medical team were wonderful and I really like Dr. Jabs personally. Just off the bat, I want to admit that I did not probe too deeply into the details of the procedure itself because I am sort of a wimp about this stuff . So I can't complain or say for sure if I was adequately prepared but I take full responsibility for that part. My research was more on the recovery process and the doctor, the practice, credentials, etc. Having said that, I am very happy to say that so far my experience has been very good. My recovery, pain-wise is as expected. The worst part of the procedure was getting the numbing shots which to me felt like the equivalent of a juvaderm injections. During the procedure and since I have felt virtually no pain whatsoever. Just a little itching, some blurred vision (still) and some swelling, minimal. Visually, the second day I was a little shocked by the reddish/purplish black color of my eyelids which was somewhat alarming. It continues to improve daily so I'm not sweating it yet but I don't think I expected it to look so severe. I will post pictures of each day and will provide a weekly update.
