Upper & Lower Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty) - Calgary, AB

Tired of having to wear full on makeup everyday to hide under eye bags and and hooded eyelids which were not looking as cute as when I was in my early 20s

I was very nervous about the surgery but just like everyone else said, it was really no big deal.

After surgery is when everything starts. Runny eyes itchy tape however when the stitches came out the did not hurt which was a pleasant surprise

. Trying to sleep would be the worst part of everything with my eyelids not completely closing yet

DAY 1 POST OP - feeling better than I expect to feel which causes me not to lay down and rest as I should. So tomorrow will be all rest day.… And had my stitches out today no big deal. Results look even better

Day 3...

Day two, which was yesterday, it was awful. I did up getting the flu or something. My neck and my back was so sore I couldn't even touch them. Coughing up and blowing that green mucus.

However today is day three I'm feeling much better and the bruising and intense black eyes are starting to fade quite a bit and turn yellow

Day four postop

Feeling much better. I think I got the flu were sick or something I don't know… But I feel like I'm recovering quickly from whatever happened. Bruising is going down quite a bit so is the swelling.
Getting bored though, I just want to do my make up and do stuff. Face feels tight and whatever I put oil or anything on my face it feels like my incisions could rip open sorry I still have to be super careful

7 days post op

Got the flu and still recovering from that. Probably shouldn't have gone shopping the day after surgery. However healing pretty good. I had my stitches removed the very next day after surgery and I think that's one of the reasons the scarring is not that bad. The left eye corner is not looking as flawless as the right eye but ceiling so fast I'm not concerned. Nothing but a couple of scratches on my eyelids and some bruising left. Can't wait for my eyelashes to grow back. They started falling out a couple days after surgery because I just have really sensitive eyes. They fall out even if I use old mascara. Sucks but I'm used to it. The grow back in a month. Loving the decision to have my upper and lower eyelids done

9 days post op

Left upper eyelid swelling mostly gone.
Right upper eyelid still somewhat swollen and does not open all the way yet.
Minimal bruising on both upper eyelids but more so on the right upper eyelid

Lower eyelids, right lower eyelid has no visible bruising while the left has a tiny bit left

The right eye has almost no signs of surgery occurring while the left corner has two little bumps and a faint line. Both get a little bit better every day.

Today the difference in eyes seems more noticeable as the left eye lid opens more than the right eye and is making the eyes look different. I assume this is swelling and will eventually subside and look more symmetrical
Overall I am extremely pleased. I was expecting much more scarring ... The inner right I had me concerned the first four days post op but those issues have literally disappeared and dissolved quite quickly

I spoke with Carol which is one of Dr. Perrons nurses and she said the minimal scarring on my upper eyelids is most likely from Dr. Perrons use of a scalpel over the laser... I thought it was from having the stitches removed the next day. Either way beyond ecstatic because the upper eyelids have almost no sign of surgery considering I'm not even two weeks out

I've been using calendula, pure frankincense oil and Helichrysum carefully to help with scarring as they have reversed scarring and prevented scarring in other situations before.

I think I'll make my next update when I am one month postop as I can't really comment on my lower eyelids until the bruising is gone. I can see the fat bags have been resolved but until the bruising is gone I won't really know how how I feel or the bottom lids.

I don't know if it was Dr. Perron and his techniques or if my plant therapy helped that much but I'm over the moon the upper eyelids are looking as they do so far.
I wouldn't trust my face to anyone else. All the other procedures I want done I'm much more confident to have now

Absolutely loved Dr Perron. He is so comforting and clearly an expert. knows exactly what he's doing consolidates your questions before you even ask them… This was strangely a really cool experience. Surgery and all. Absolutely love him and the staff. Five stars is not enough
