I had both upper and lower eye lid surgery on April 18th by Dr. Gary Smith in Roseville, CA. He did an amazing job on my eyes and did a little lipo under my chin for a small additional cost. I'm healing wonderfully and am thrilled with the results! I've also been doing mild hyperbaric... READ MORE

>.< SO tomorrow's the big day. I'm terrified. Mostly because I'm afraid I won't wake up. Gah! I'm an anxiety ridden mess and can't sleep, I'm so nervous. Does anyone else feel selfish or like a bad parent for PS? My greatest fear is having an issue with the anesthesia and leaving my kids... READ MORE

My eyes are small and when I squint or smile my eye disappeared. As I got older the lids began to droop so much that even if I did not smile my eyes were hidden. I decided this surgery was my only hope and boy I'm glad I did. The surgery went smooth and when I woke up there was no pain at all.... READ MORE

I found everything in Sabrina, believe the reviews.. They are so true. Had upper eyelid blepharoplasty on 4April 16 under local was back at... READ MORE

Day After Surgery- I feel good. No pain at all. Eyes are "sticky" and tight. Swollen pretty good, icing eyes and keeping head elevated. I'm taking the Arnica tablets and antibiotics as directed. Haven't had a need to take ANY pain medicine. Slept great last night after getting home from hospital... READ MORE

35-year-old tired of looking tired. Inherited my mothers big beautiful eyes along with the bags! I've always had them as long as I can remember. They've become more prominent with age and sleepless nights with babies! Had Lower lid transcongunctival blepharoplasty with CO2 laser under eyes... READ MORE

Well tomorrow is the day. I'm very excited, and a bit nervous all at the same time. There was a time in my life where my eyes were one of my best features ... but not so much any more. I hate seeing pictures of myself, I always look tired. Well, tomorrow, I hope to change all that, and get... READ MORE

After numerous comments from work colleagues that I looked tired at 59 and working full time. Plus chasing my loose skin around my eye lids, trying to apply eye shadow, I decided to get my families help in making the decision to do something to fix it. My 22 year old daughter was always taking... READ MORE

I had upper eyelids surgery with Dr Julian De Silva in December 2015 and I am so happy with the results. My eyelids were droopy and it was something that I was really conscious of. Dr J De Silva took away the excess skin on my eyelids and also trimmed some of my muscles to tighten up the area... READ MORE

Dr. Gordon did an upper blepharoplasty on my droopy eyelids. I was THRILLED with the result, and still am, 4 years later at 50. My eyes look natural, not like I had "work done". Surgeons always say "people will say you look well-rested." That always made me laugh. Who talks that way? Well... READ MORE

I have always had droopy eyelids and I was tired of being asked if I was sick, or if I was tired, or if I was feeling ok. After tensile research, I knew I wanted eyelid surgery as soon as I was able. Although swollen and blue and purple, I could not be happier with the outcome of the eyelid... READ MORE

As I'd gotten into my late 30's I noticed the excess skin on my eyelids aging me. My mom's eyelids have it as well, so I knew it was hereditary and would only get worse. I'd been able to use Botox for a few years to help give it a lift, but as time went on there was nothing I could do. I finally... READ MORE

I am 51 and my eyelids starting drooping a couple of years ago, to make things worse one lid droops far worse than the other. The last few years I've had Botox to try to even them up, but it's not working anymore and I want my large bright eyes again! Tomorrow is the big day, all my... READ MORE

Hello! I'm Diane and I joined Realself in November. I've been wanting my eyes done forever due to increasing puffiness and saggy skin. The reviews and pictures on this site helped me make the decision to have this procedure. The best advice I can give right now is to have a great upbeat... READ MORE

Have wanted this procedure for many years and after lots of research decided to get it done in Europe as Uk prices were always going to be out of my range. I found very little info on the internet about what to expect so I hope my mini blog helps others. Of course I will update as time goes on.... READ MORE
