Home Sweet Home And Blepharoplasty

I miss Greece...I miss the warmth (although I hear they are having a old spell), I miss Sophia  our wonderful neighbor and I miss sitting out on the balcony looking at the sea. It's been raining for three days now with no sun in the forecast for another three days. Not good weather for arthritis sufferers.

I don't miss the disorganization of Greek life and the daily struggles of getting stuff done. That's were North America has the edge.

I am happy to report that my eyes are healing splendidly so here are the before and after pics. The after is three weeks post surgery and I expect them to get even better. The good doctor told me that it needs a good two months to see the final result.



These photos are not touched up at all. I have eyes...

Here is the link to the article in Der Spiegel that made me choose the doctor that I did. It was a great choice. To say that I am thrilled with the result would be an understatement. So far no one who I haven't told can tell, all they can say is that I look rested. That was the look I was trying to achieve.

The good doctor really wanted to fix the bags under my eyes too but I declined.

That's an incredible improvement, Rositta! I'm glad it went so well!

Do you have any scars at all?

Yes, there are scars. But they are in the crease and therefore don't really show unless I close my eyes. Lots of vitamin E oil and massage will take care of that within a couple of months. I did the same with my hip surgery scars and they are barely visible. I could also wear makeup to hide them but so far I haven't bothered.

I am 39 and considering having upper eyelid surgery. As it is carried out under nearby sedative, how awful would it say it is? To what extent is the recuperation period? Anynone have a proposal?

I had only mild sedation plus local freezing. I found the recovery period very easy. The first couple of days I was very swollen but that's easy to deal with. I kept frozen peas handy to use as ice packs. 10 minutes every hour for the first couple of days. Within 10 days I was on a flight back to Canada and nobody could tell. I am a lot older than you so the results were very dramatic and pleasing. I am now almost a year post surgery and my eyes look great. Good luck to you whatever you decide...ciao
