As most of you are aware that I have recently done my very first surgical procedure – eye bag removal by Dr Woffles Wu in end May 2010. And I believe you have read my Part One review @ - Invasive Treatment Review – Surgical Eye Bag Removal By Dr Woffles Wu – PART 1.
As promised, here is my Part Two review on this surgical eye bag removal treatment. And I guess many of you have been eagerly awaiting for this follow-up review for a long time. Yes my bad, I’m taking years to post this part 2. Hehe….
(a recall from the previous post)
My review appointment with Dr Wu today. I have bought up my concerns on the severe dark eye circles and sunken areas (indention). He claimed that the dark areas are due to blood stasis (staining) from the operation. These darkness will disappear in a couple of weeks.
The indention (see pic below) is due to swelling on both areas just below my lower eyelashes and right below the sunken area. It is believed that when both swellings are gone, the sunken area will look plump up naturally. Well I will give them the benefit of a doubt. The bloodshot on my left eye has reduced in size.
The dark eye circles were so bad that even concealer was not able to cover up the darkness.
The dark circles were still as bad. The bloodshot on the left eye has significantly reduced. The mini eye bags and sunken (indention) areas for both eyes are still obvious. Hiaz!
Week 5 1/2
The dark circles has superficial reduced a little. The bloodshot on the left eye was almost recovered. I was still troubled with the indention, they make me look tired and aged. Sign……..
Today, I went to Dr Wu’s clinic for my second review and this image above was taken by Dr Wu. After a quick examine, he claimed he has noticed some improvements and suggested that in order for me to look even more younger, he would like to inject minimal fillers (1/2 vial) to plump up the areas just right below the eye socket (inner cheek areas beside the nose). Don’t ask me why I couldn’t say NO and eventually I went ahead with his suggestion. The result? I can’t tell the different before and after with that 1/2 vial of fillers. Money wasted!
Finally, the bloodshot on my left eye has completely gone! Somehow I feel that the mini eye bags have became more prominent and that make my indention even more visible even from a distance away. Feeling upset about it actually ….. Although the overall dark eye circles have reduced significantly but the dark patches right below the mini eye bags (where the indention areas are) are still noticeable. I reckon these darkness are caused from a shadow cast by the mini eye bag or the lack of fat pads under the skin that make it less transparent and that create a hollowed-out look in under-eye area.
The dark circles are back to the previous condition as per before the treatment. They are still visibly dark (which I’m used to it) but not as bad as the blood stasis (staining) result right after the operation (see Day 18). The mini bags and the indention are still noticeable. I was told earlier that generally it will need six months or longer to see actual full result. Well, I guess I have to wait patiently to see ‘them’ disappear soon.
Overall, I’m quite satisfied with the result, the bags and puffiness are gone! But I just hope that the mini eye bags and hollowed-out look will be gone in the coming two or three months’ time. Will probably do an update again soon.
