I have always had a problem with my eyebags. No matter how much I paid attention to my sleeping habits or how much eyecream I used, I always still look tired and listless after a good night’s rest. After much consideration, I decided to go for an eyebag removal surgery. As I had already done nose fillers with Dr Shens, I decided to go back to Dr Shens for my eyebag removal surgery. Dr Shens was very patient with his explanation. He told me in detail of what to expect in my surgery and I was sold after my consultation.
On the day of my surgery, I was very nervous. However, Dr Shens was very reassuring along the way and that helped to calm me down tremendously. The soothing music also helped to calm my nerves. Before I knew it, the surgery was done. It took a mere 20 minutes. The recovery was something I wasn’t looking forward to simply because I have a low threshold for pain. After the surgery, I had double vision, which is normal after an eyebag removal surgery. After resting for a few hours, I vomited. (this is normal for me as this is how my body reacts when the aesthesia wears off). It was much better after I applied eye packs and rested.
Day 1 of the post opt was alright. I woke up and found a little blood on my pillow, other than swelling and discharge, my eyes were not painful at all. I was able to go about running errands.
Day 2, the swelling went down a lot but I felt discomfort around my eyes whenever I smiled or laughed, however, it is very manageable.
By day 3, the swelling had all gone down and my eyes looked like there was dark circles instead.
I went back to work by day 4 with light make up and concealer. And by Day 7, the result was perfect. The recovery was not as bad a I thought it to be. Overall, I am very satisfied with what Dr Shens has done for my eyebags and I have no regrets at all.
