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

I have always had droopy eyelids but they didn't get bad until after I turned 40. The eyelid skin started to droop more over my lashes. People were asking me if I got enough sleep. My contacts would not stay in my eyes. Believe it or not my eyelids felt like I was wearing half dollars on them, they felt that heavy. I was spending hundreds of dollars on creams, gels and laser treatments that didn't have a permanent fix. I decided to stop wasting my money and started researching plastic surgeons. After a year and many consultations later I found Dr. Han. I had my consultation, loved his interaction and the time he spent with me answering all my questions. I had upper and lower eyelid surgery and I love it. I can kick myself for wasting all those years and my money. Dr. Hans' staff is as genuine and caring as he is.

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

Initially, I only told my husband and children. My daughters were all for it. My husband thought I was being vain. My sons didn't care one way or another.

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

I contacted 1800mySurgeon and was connected with Rosie. I told her I wanted a Doctor who has performed many eyelid surgeries.She gave me the information I needed to research her recommendation which I did thoroughly.

Can you describe your surgery and recovery?

I was a little nervous while waiting but the nurses in preop and in the operating room eased my mind. The surgery went well and I came out looking like I expected. I had no pain with any of it. I felt good.

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

I highly recommend it. My friends can't believe they can't see the suture lines. My friends asked me how I found Dr. Han and I told them I found him with the help of 1800mySurgeon.

How do you feel about your result?

I feel great about myself. The procedure definitely added 10 years back to my looks. People can't believe that I'm 50!
