A Follow-Up Consultation With Dr Woffles Wu On My Surgical Eyebag Removal Procedure

 

Woof! Time really flies! Didn’t realize I have my surgical eye bag removal procedure done more than three years ago. It has been a long while since I’ve met Dr Woffles Wu. I have recently visited him again for my third follow-up consultation.

To be true, I was a little unhappy with the result few months upon the procedure. As the swelling started to subside, I began to notice an indention at tear trough area (right below the ‘love roll’ muscle at the lower eyelids). The indention became more obvious especially between 6th to 12th months upon the procedure and prior the swelling was fully subsided.

After checking with Dr Wu, I got to understand what are the causes of the depression. The depressions are not due to the amount of fat being removed but it is part of the aging process and for my case, it is due to swelling too. As we age, the lower eyelid above the cheek and below begin to sag however the tear trough cannot sag with the rest of the facial skin due to its ligaments attachment to the bone of the eye socket.

Estée Lauder NEW Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II

 

Do you know one of my beauty secrets to healthy and glowing skin is to get adequate sleep?

Studies have shown that lack of sleep may speed aging process that leads to lackluster skin, fine lines, and dark circles under the eyes.

What’s My Skin Doing While I Sleep?

In the day, my skin gets a battering from the sun’s rays, dust, dirt and pollutants. And at night, as my skin’s metabolic rate speeds up, my skin goes into repair, replenish and restore mode. While I sleep, my skin renews itself. New skin cells grow and replace older cells. It is therefore essential to feed my skin with potent nutrients (from serums) while I sleep.

A while ago, I was pleased to receive a complimentary bottle of the new Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II (in 50ml). It is an improved version of the previous version Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex.

The recently clinical trial, commissioned by Estee Lauder, demonstrated that poor sleepers show signs of premature skin aging and a decrease in their skin’s ability to recover after sun exposure.
