So glad i found this post. i had under eyelid...

So glad i found this post. i had under eyelid surgery last july for bags under my eyes. My fiance paid for it because he wanted to do something nice for me since i had been sick for a while. The doctor reassured me that nothing would go wrong and i asked him if there was a chance he could take too much fat out. He said that has never happened before and i would be fine. A week after my surgery i looked in a mirror and was horrified that i had what looked like big bruises under both eyes. At the follow up i expressed my concerns to the surgeon and he said it would take more time to heal and that it was fine. A month after that my eyes still didnt look any better. I didnt think my eyes could look worse then they did before my surgery but i was wrong. i couldn't hardly eat or sleep for weeks i was so distraught. I went to another surgeon and he confirmed that my eyes were probably not gonna get any better than they were and recommended that i try restylane. it took 3 viles of restylane to help my appearance. The restylane has since worn off and i am back to ground zero. i hope one day i can find a permanent solution to my problem. I am only 23. I now hide behind my glasses and cant let go of the guilt i have for going through with the surgery. I feel like its a bad dream and keep hoping i will wake up and at least not be horrified by what i see when i look in the mirror. I feel deformed and i cant believe the doctor that did this to me is living his happy life while i am in constant missery.
