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

I am 49 and my eyes have been an issue for me for 12-15 years. The procedure was good and I just did a local but you better not mind needles and shots. I asked them to save the skin they cut off and was surprised at how much. The healing time is longer than they say. After 5-6 weeks they are looking pretty darn good. I am satisfied.

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

Of course they did not think I needed it but understood if it was an issue for me, vanity is such a nasty thing in our culture. They have noticed a big difference since and have positive comments.

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

1800mySurgeon was awesome and I would use them again. Great communication without being a pain in the neck.

Can you describe your surgery and recovery?

I was awake during the whole procedure and it was a little painful but well worth the 350 dollars I saved in not being knocked out. The stitching took the longest, as well it should. My scares look really good and that is only if you can see them.

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

Take your own before pictures so you can look at them after a couple of weeks of healing and see the difference. Plan on wearing sunglasses inside of stores for a couple of weeks. It was worth it and would do it again. My family was very supportive and kind.

How do you feel about your result?

I am a very patient man but I am excited for 3-4 months to go by. I think I will be completely healed by then. The swelling and bruising should be all gone. I did buy some eye concealer for the bruising and it works really well and lets me see what they will eventually look like.
