    Default My Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) before and afters

    @fgg This one is for you

    Blepharoplasty is a common beauty surgery in asia,almost one third of the young generation had it done,and they usually get it when they turned 18.Myself on the other hand waited 26 years and finally decided to go for it.Its not about self-esteem or anything,im proud of my asian heritage and i love the uniqueness of asian beauty,its more like a childhood dream came true,i always wanted big double lids and the reason i didnt do it before its im afraid it might turned out the way that its not close to what i have in mind,but im really getting tired of taping my eyelids everyday,and i reached to the age that you kind of wish for a change(my first plastic surgery,btw...thats my real nose and lips,i get questions and comments of whether i had any work done on them a lot,thanks mom and dad,yall only gave me one thing i need to improve lol),so...why not?!

    Actually im not so sure if i should call mine blepharoplasty,cuz in my case,there is no skin or fat being removed,no stitchings,and not even visible truama.The process is quite simple,the surgeon used a spicial surgical thread(designed for double eyelid surgery),by making tiny knots she sewed the skin and muscle together(i have like average 6 knots on each eye),i know this is very hard for you guys to follow,so ill post a video here to show you guys how its done:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MROKS...eature=related


    It took me about a week to heal,i wouldnt call the whole process is very painful,i know it looks like it hurts like hell lol


    Oh BTW I'm a guy if thats what you guys have been curious about xD

    Alright,enough with the chitchat,lets bring the photos out


    This is how my eyes used to look like before the surgery

    I actually have a small crease before,its just you can hardly see it when i fully open my eyes


    I normally tape my eyelid with double eyelid tape to creat the crease i want like this



    without eyelid tape





    Here comes the horror show

    After Surgery - Day 1


    Day 2



    Since the first couple of days are when the swelling reaches to its high peak,so i didnt take any pics of the following 4 days

    Lets goes straight to day 6
    My surgeon told me i should let my eyes free from makeup and moist from at least a week,but i had a big party going on on day 6,so i just went straight for it.The corner of my right eye was still a bit bruised at the time(i covered it with lots of eyeshadow),but in general my eyes were pretty much healed(and the makeup remover didnt sting my wound as i thought it would),most of my friends didnt notice anything unusual(they thought i taped my eyelids like what i usually do in the past xD)



    freaky,i know lol







    Day 7,the bruise was still there,i think it actually looked kind of awesome lol



    Day 10








    fter two weeks







    After one month(with makeup)


    After two month(without makeup)



    After three month



    Here are the ones with makeup on.I have to say my new transformed eyelids are so much easier to work on now,i dont even need half of the time i used to spend in the past on my eyemakeup ^ ^

































    Close up





    And a few before and afters to make an end










    In the end,what i really wanna say is,if you really feel like change something about yourself and it will makes you happier,go ahead and do so,you dont have to care much about what other people will say,cuz at the end of the day its all about yourself and how you feel.Ive received positive and negative comments,but as for myself,i feel much more confident now(not that i wasnt in the past,its just...more...does that make any sense? xD)

    You are really talented with that eye makeup, Edison! I'm glad you are happy with your surgery.

    I think so too, if YOU don't feel comfortable in your own skin and there are possibilities to get it solved, do it ! Confidence can boost a lot of inner beauty and you start to glow.


    The surgery looks like a very decent job.

    I am in full envy of your makeup skills! I'm glad your surgery turned out well and you like the results. But I thought you looked great before too.

    Fascinating how they only stitched, didn't remove any skin or fat, it's always so interesting to read exactly how they do these kinds of surgeries.

    haha you are not alone here.I only wear (eye)makeup when i go out,sometimes when i go to the restrooms in a club i freak those poor guys out,they were like "hey,you are in the wrong washroom"
    But of course,if i do the full girlie look,ill just use the woman's
    but i once came across with a guy who made out with me and still thought i was a girl,how is that possible?? I thought he knew the whole time

    Yep fortunately i have got a surgeon with amazing skills and we communicated well and she fully understood what i want.the whole process only took 20 minutes,and we were chatting throughout the whole time (i guess she was trying to make me less nervous lol).Im lucky to have thin lids and not so much fat,otherwise the stitching surgery wont work cuz the knots wont be able to hold the skin and muscle attached together,in that case they will have to cut the lids open and remove part of the fat&skin and stitch them back together,in that case it will take a couple of months to heal;but in that way its permanent.My surgery is revertible,i can always go back and take the thread out if im not satisfied with the shape and ill go back to my monolids days...which ill never do lol

    I was wondering about that part! Was it one shot per eye?
    I found that video quite interesting. I am glad you shared it so we could see/understand exactly what you meant.
    The old pictures seem to show the skin resting right on the eyelashes. Was that uncomfortable for you?
    You are very striking & talented. Are you a make-up artist? If not, you really should be!

    Do you actually have a mole in your left eye? That little dark spot in the whites of your left eye.

    Before and after, you are very beautiful and I wish my makeup skills were half of what yours are.
