Brown Eyed Girl is Getting Tweaked

I just found out today that my insurance has approved surgery on my eyelids. With age, the skin of my upper eyelid has stretched and become redundant. Also the fat seems to have herniated forwared which has created (in my case LOTS of) puffiness. This has caused me to look older and tired all the time. I have had this for awhile and have really become depressed about it. Not any more! I am doing something about it. I am going to have surgery to remove the excess skin and fat. The name for this procedure is called a blepharoplasty. I found some before and after pictures on a patient whose eyelids look a lot like mine so you can get an idea of what to expect. I am having this done on June 18th and I plan to take a before picture and then follow up with daily progress pictures so that you can follow my journey. I am so excited about this and cannot wait to share this with you all. Below are before and after pictures of someone whose eyelids looked a lot like mine before she had hers done. Just want to give you and idea of what to expect.

I worked with a woman once who had this done, and she looked fifteen years younger when she did it! Said she could see better too, somes genes just give you droppy eyes, some give you a bearded lady, guess if chefing does not work for me I could always go to work for a circus! :)

Hey word verification is 'chili' I should have ordered that for dinner!

so you won't look so mean anymore? just surprised? I've thought about some botox for this one huge wrinkle between the eyes but then I wouldn't be able to glare at people anymore or wiggle my eyes brows one at a time.

Good for you! we don't do enough for ourselves!

Right on girlie! I worked for a plastic surgery clinic for years and this a very common surgery. I'm glad your insurance approved it, sometimes it was so hard to get them to approve it.

I can't wait to see your after pictures. Don't get addictive and get more done ... LOL so many people became repeat customers ;)
