I am very happy with the results. I did not want to look "different". I wasn't going for something super dramatic. I just wanted to look more like myself.
Recovery is time-consuming. It takes a lot longer than the time between surgery and stitches removal before you really are fully recovered. Although you look pretty good within 6 weeks (my before and after are 6 weeks apart), it is amazing the number of things that will make your eyes swell for quite a while afterwards: Exercise, hair dye, air travel -- all things that are part of my regular routine!
Is it worth it? A resounding yes.
