Re: THE PARTY THREAD

Happy birthday @wheeeee . You are really brave. I hope you get your desired outcome ! Looking forward to see your looks 🙂

EDIT: Just realized my auto correct had changed "brave" into "brand" due to whatever weird reason so I edited it back.

Re: THE PARTY THREAD

T/y so much!  @fatimamummy   I hope so, too!!!  I will be able to post an eyeshadow look next month  

Re: THE PARTY THREAD

i am actually really curious about cosmetic surgery the closer i get to 40! i hope you are healing well, and you should totally post looks when you are healed!

Re: THE PARTY THREAD

T/y!  @unfungirl

Yes, totally!!!   Must be something we can't see....because, from your photos you look fab!  Research is everything and take your time deciding.  

Re: THE PARTY THREAD

oh @wheeeee, you are too kind!!

 

i don't have anything in mind, but i can see the effects of gravity starting to take place on my face!

 

i am definitely a big researcher for anything big!! i got botox for the first time this year, and i researched places for months before i took the plunge Smiley Happy

 

can't wait to see your eyes post-op! you should do a before and after photo! Smiley Happy

Re: THE PARTY THREAD

@unfungirl  Yea!  Slow and steady maintenance is good!

 

I never got my Botox which I wanted for 2 years!   My 3 little eye crinkles that I wanted gone were cut-away with this surgery!  

 

I will post when I can do eyeshadow look.  Excited!

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
