Hello, I'm 24 years old and I have bags under my eyes and lots of little fine lines. I would like to get the a lower blepharoplasty but I've heard they increase sclera show and can increase fine lines. I would love to hear peoples opinions and experiences.
Nichole 14, To consider having your eyes done at 24 is totally INSANE! Lower blep is very, very, risky. I have read so many stories of ectropian (the lower eyelid sags), this is a very risky procedure. It will change the shape of your eyes and make them round and weird looking, go to the eye section of MMH or realself and read the stories of what happens when you mess with your eyes. Take my advice DO NOT MESS WITH YOUR EYES! If you do you will live to REGRET it. 24 is so young and I am sure you look beautiful. I had surgery when I was 30 on my eyes, convinced I had bags and looked horrible. Everyone, tried to talk me out of it, but I did it anyway. My lower lids drooped and made me look round eyed and scared all the time, my surgeon told me if I massaged they would go back up, they never did. I look like a freak. Once I had a very pretty face, now I hide from the world.
so sorry to hear about your experience MAIMEDANDSAD... luckily for me I had exactly opposite experience.... dear op... before I share... must say I agree with MAIMEDANDSAD that 24 is quite young to do a belph.... I had upper and lower done last year in Jan with Dr Warwick Nettle.... My eyes have always been my strong feature but with age the bags got worse and the skin on upper lid drooped.... I am 35 did the op at 34 and its the best decision I ever made! It has taken years off my face and when I went to see the doc he showed me the bef and after pics... and the transformation is just incredible.... having said that and keeping in mind MAIMEDANDSAD's experience.... it all depends on the doc you choose....unlike many other plastic surgeons... Dr Nettle is known to specialise only in facial plastic surgery... thats his forte... Thus If you chose to go ahead with it.... choose your Doctor wisely.... I did 2 years of research before I went ahead with Dr Nettle.
I also had lipo (lower body) done at another clinic with another doc... and they completely screwed up.... but many other have had great experiences with lipo... this again goes to show it all depends on the Doc we choose. Hope that helps some
