Medically my eyelids were too droopy & needed raised. Insurance does not pay for extra eyelid skin removal so I paid $4,000 for just that part. I did get the brow lift with endotines. Used a Dr recommended by my optometrist. Still you never know what Dr is going to be like AFTER he gets his money.
I have to go back to work in 5 days. Computer work.
Do you think I will be able to do that? ?

Day 6 not much bruising. Am I lucky?

But look at the puckering in corner of right eye. Will that go away? Maybe he will have to snip it off?
So glad you guys are here. I am totally alone in this.

Day 6 not much bruising. Am I lucky?

Just worried about the puckering in corner of right eye

Day 8

Still no bruising. Am I just lucky? Tomorrow back to work. My eyes might get tired doing hrs of computer work. Plus people will think I am weird. .or vain. Well I worry too much

12 days post op

Looks really good. !! Only upper blepharoplasty and brow lift but NO Bruising. Not one spec.
QUESTIONS: EYE feel gritty slightly swollen and my vision slightly blurry. ( Work is computer work so I must NOT make mistakes)
Can I diagnose this myself as chemosis? Not wearing contacts any more.
I use the contact lens fluid which is soothing. .but stings a bit.
should I take antihistamines?
Back to ice packs?
Thanks for answers. My Doc expects me to know everything already.

13 days post op. So happy

Sent this pic to my daughter who lives far away. Remember I am 66 years old.
Dallas Oculoplastic Surgeon

He starts out real nice of course. I don't think he will be sympathetic if I have any complications. Too early to tell. After they get their $ ..oh well I will update this review if he helps me with my chemosis
