Congrats on your new "you"!!

 

Re: THE PARTY THREAD

T/y!  @AMHWKI  All brand new lids!!

Re: THE PARTY THREAD

Happy Birthday @wheeeee!  I'm also curious about your eyelid surgery. I have had hooded eyes all my life and now as the top lid is starting to droop, it's getting to be very little real estate left to put shadow on lol.

 

Seriously, I will have to have this done in a couple of years as it's starting to affect my vision. Did it hurt a lot right after? I'm a chicken for pain and squeamish, maybe I should get full anesthesia and lots of painkillers, haha.

Spoiler
Same thing was happening to me.
I kept raising my right eye (involuntarily) and then I would noticed people giving me weird looks. When people would talk to me if this happened.......it looked like I was giving them 'snooty-eye' because it also raises your eyebrow.
hahahahhaha!

I realized this was happening about a year ago. But, it probably has been going on for a lot longer.

No, it didn't hurt. I should heal up pretty quickly as well since I only did my upper eyelid skin. The lid skin is very thin and heals very quickly.

When you look online keep in mind that a lot of people do Uppers/Lowers together and supposedly Lowers hurt a lot.  They scooped out your fat, reposition fat, etc.  They stitched you up on your waterline for Lowers.  If you notice my photo for Uppers.  My skin was just cut-out and then sewn up.  

When you get home you just take care of your 'face space'.........make sure nobody can hit/bump you like dogs or kids kinda thing............but, other than that you can walk around, drive, go out on errands, etc. My prescription sunglasses hide everything. I am bruised around the eyes.

Have no fear! I got numbing shots around my eyes during surgery and then Tramadol and Valium at home.
I only needed 2 Tramadols. No pain at all!

Eye fatigue and watery eyes for the first 2 days was the worst of it.

Online or watching TV is difficult. You can't exercise or cuddle your pets. Boredom!!!!!  I managed!

I drove myself to the doctor's on Day 3 without any problems. 

Go for it!!!! ;')


 

Re: THE PARTY THREAD

@wheeeee Thanks for all the details. And I'm happy to hear the pain was so manageable. I fear I have a lower and upper in my future. Both are genetic and when I see my dad's eyes, I want to cry LOL! My grandfathers uppers were so bad he had surgery. He couldn't even drive anymore because his vision was so impaired.  

 

I dont want to look twenty or like a different person. Just need that skin hoisted up a bit. People always ask me if I'm tired.

Re: THE PARTY THREAD

Totally  and T/y!  @sierrafallon

 

I also love looking at surgical photos.  

As we say......'glad to be on the other side' and not just wishing it was me with new lids.

Wow, I didn't know that was a thing. I'd like to be able to afford to get something done so my lids aren't as hooded. I've had hooded lids my whole life. I also have a prominent line in each lower lid, which I've also had my whole life.

It is! @shyvicki

If you have hooded lids you will probably need this surgery in older age since they just keep dropping.
This surgery is inexpensive when you compare it to others.

If you can afford to be ROUGE, you can probably manage to save for this surgery with  a little less shopping and more savings in about a year.  Don't get discouraged by the cost.  

Your under-eye lines sound like tear troughs. There are like a million treatments for that and it is best to consult your doctor.  

 

Re: THE PARTY THREAD

In Canada, the surgery is free if you have severely hooded eyes. My mom keeps saying she wants to get it done at some point.

Re: THE PARTY THREAD

Yes!  @Beadshopgirl

 

Spoiler
This surgery is covered by insurance in US as well. The major qualifying factor is that it has to impaired your vision.

You have to go to your eye doctor and do some testing and then submit to insurance company kinda thing.

Mine just sat on top of my eyelashes. I could wear false eyelashes and you couldn't tell I was wearing big 'ole fake lashes. And, I have huge eyes, too! lol!!!

But, if you go online you can see many people where their lids are literally drooping in front of their eyes. Those are the people that qualify for insurance coverage in US.

If you are like this, yea, explore with your insurance company, for sure!

 

Re: THE PARTY THREAD

@shyvicki if it's something that really bothers you, you should go see a plastic surgeon

 

often times, having 1 surgery like this isn't ridiculously expensive (sometimes it within what people spend on their skincare) and a lot of surgeons have payment plans where it can fit into your budget.

 

you might have to cut costs out of your luxury items, but if it's something that affects how you feel about yourself, I'd recommend going for a consultation (which often is free)

 

obviously, it gets unaffordable when people want several things done
