Share your story about why you considered and ultimately had cosmetic surgery.

It has been 3 months since my upper and lower eyelid surgery and I must say I am very pleased. I considered this surgery because every time I would look in the mirror I would look extra tired and it was a difficult to put my eye makeup on because my eyes were droopy. I'm 62 and look young for my age, except for my eyes. Now I feel great and confident and I realize I don't hide behind my eye glasses anymore.

How did your friends and family feel about your decision to have a procedure?

My family were totally against it and said I didn't need it. My girlfriends were happy and supportive that I was going to have this procedure done, especially my friends who had already had their eyelids done. One of my friends took me to the hospital and took care of me after surgery.

How did 1800MySurgeon help you through the process of finding a qualified plastic surgeon?

1800mySurgeon was prompt in helping me and I felt confident in their referral. 1800mySurgeon kept in touch with me and made my appointment in a timely manner. They were professional and courteous at all times.

Can you describe your surgery and recovery?

I felt safe and confident with Dr. Daiza. She was reassuring and explained everything in detail. There was never a time when I was in pain. I was surprised because even with some bruising, my eyes or my face never hurt. My follow-up appointments with Dr. Daiza have been helpful to me.

What advice would you give to another person considering your same procedure?

I would recommend Dr. Daiza to anyone who is considering this type of procedure. She is a gentle woman who will give you confidence and take away any fear you may have. I know because I was very frightened at first as this was my first plastic surgery ever. I am glad I had it done.

How do you feel about your result?

I was a little concerned at first with puffy eyes and the bruises (which didn't last long), but now I must say I am so very very happy with the results of my eyes. Everyone who knows about my procedure can really see the difference and they are happy for me as well as I am happy for myself!
