I chose to have the procedure done under local sedation with injections directly in the lower eyelid, under my eyelashes. He gave me some anti anxiety medicine as I was waiting to get the procedure done and also numbing eye drops right before we started.
Once the injections kicked in, my eyes were totally number and he began to extract the fat under my eyes. The whole time I was awake, eyes open, super calm, and didnt feel a thing. He used the cauterizing tool ( i assume) to burn some space into my eyes to reposition the fat to get rid of the hollowness I also had on top of the puffy eyes.
THe whole thing lasted about an hour and as soon as I was done my friend drove me home and In bed I stayed for 2 days. He gave me mild pain medicine, but as the numbing went away the pain and swolleness began. The first night and half day were rather bad, I also had some headaches but I just pushed thought with ice on my face and tylenol with codeine which the Dr. prescribed.
