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

I had lower eyelid surgery done because my eye bags with dark circles were so bad, people thought I had a black eye. They also made me look so tired and so much older. I wanted to look more refreshed since I'm single and also looking for a job. I tired so many under eye concealers that made the bags look worse. There wasn't any way I could hide them. I didn't know any other way to make my eyes look better.

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

Nobody said a whole lot about my decision to have my eyelids done. They didn't understand why I would spend that much money for something like that, but unless you're me, you wouldn't understand.

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

1800mySurgeon responsed from when I went online to check out plastic surgeons. They called me within 24-48 hours with the name of a Doctor in my town. They states that he had excellent references and background. That is the Doctor I chose to do my procedure.

Can you describe your surgery and recovery?

I went to an abulatory center the outpatient surgery. They took me into the room to change and the Surgeon came in to take before pictures and asked if I had any questions. Then they put me under, not all the way, but more than a local anesthesia. I came out of surgery (about an hour later) and went into recovery. They gave me something to drink and eat and pain medicine. I went home and slept most of the day. There wasn't as much pain as I thought there would be. After a couple of days I felt fine. My eyelids itched a little as they healed. My stictches came out after one week. 

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

I would tell anybody that feels insecure about their eye bags to go for it. It was a simple procedure with very little pain. It was well worth the money. I wouldn't think twice if I had to do it again, which I won't have to.

How do you feel about your result?

I am very happy with my results. My eyes look so much brighter. I don't look old and tired and I feel better mentally because I feel like I look a lot better. My dark circles are almost invisible to where I don't need to wear any concealer. I don't have the drooping bags anymore. I'm really happy I had this done. It was well worth it!!
