What is blepharoplasty froot?

It's a brow lift, spider.

I'd LOVE to have one!

take arnica tablets before and after... lots of other good homeopathic rememdies, really helped after having a cs, all mws very surprised at how quick i healed.

No its not a brow lift sorry expat its an eyebag removal. They cut an incision just below the lashline and suck out the fat (bleurgh) and trim the loose skin.

I am also having a tiny bit taken away from the top lids....don't really need that now but as I will be on the slab anyway, so to speak, thought I may as well go the whole hog! Also my top lids are a bit droopy already and think it will be more noticeable once the bags have gone. I don't want to have to go back in a few years time - this is a one - off for me!!

I have always had bags (am 37 now) in fact when I was at uni I was fondly called the bag lady!! Even on toddler photos I had bags!! But they have got MILES worse since I had the kids.

Yes Mrs pink I have stocked up on arnica already as the surgeon recommended it.

Oh. A 'blephar' is an eyelid, and 'plasty' is a repair. So I thought it was a lift for the eyelid, more commonly known as a brow lift, where the surgeon trims down the eyelid and this oepn the eye a bit more.

Have you tried that stuff for decreasing bags? Think it's called 'Stri-Vectin'? It's expensive, but it may help.

I'm seriously considering having my upper eye-lids removed this year. Can anyone recommend a good surgeon in London?

A brow lift lifts the eye brows and forehead a 'bleph' is eye lid surgery to remove eye bags or lift a heavy eye lid from the top.

The stitches will come out after a week, but you might look as if you have been in a car crash for a while, but you can wear makeup once the stitches are out and concealer will help,
Not painful at all, and will lift you confidence so much

Hiya Tiasmum
Can you recommend a clinic/ surgeon where you got the works done on your eyes?

It was a very long time ago, and not sure if its even there now, but there is a good one in York who isnt too expensive, will send you the no
