hi takuda,


yes, will feel tightness at the eyes coz of the stitches, will feel more comfortable once remove stitches.


Cant apply any cream on the eyes yet, have to wait until remove stitches.


Remember dont let water gets to the eyes area, used sponge to wash face.

Avoid seafood,peanuts,chicken & eggs.

Upper Eyelift Surgery

Postby Meg28 » Thu, 13 Dec 2007 11:06 am

Hi Takuda,

I didn't know you and Yen went for upper eyelift surgery as well. I hope both of you will recover well. I did my upper eyelift via the cutting method as well almost two weeks ago. Mine is to remove fats and loose skins. On the first five days, I looked like a racoon - eyelids are red and swollen. I have recovered very well since and my eyelids have gone down a lot and the redness is gone but my eyelids are still not normal - a bit swollen still. The scars are healing well but still a bit swollen. It will fade overtime I believe.

Dryness and tightness are normal. You can get Eyemo to relieve the dryness and like what Yen has said, keep them dry. You will see your eyelids starting to heal from the 3rd or 4th day onwards. If you want your scars to fade, you can buy from Kalo a silicon gel for scar and wound management called Scarfade. It costs RM120.00 and you can apply that 2 or 3 days after the stitches have been removed. Don't use the gel prior to that.

How did your rhinoplasty go? Take care! : )

Hi Yen,

Hope you are recovering well. Take care! : )

i was actually considering eyes or nose first. in the end, i chose eyes first. didn't want to have 2 procedures at one time since i'm afraid i can't pass the customs. anw, mine's healing well, except tightness, redness, and slight swelling. but i ate BLACK soy sauce CHICKEN wings just now. gosh, will it really matter? :???:

apparently chicken doesnt work, on me at least! i just woke up and found my eyes to be almost the same as ytd(or slightly better). so maybe it really depends on individual. but for sure FRUITS help. so take more. like oranges all that, rich in vit c. i am taking 2 each day. dunno if thats too little. but yes, i am recovering well. now, the crease is ALITTLE too thick, and its slight red. other than that, i do not have bruising under my eye or whatsoever! :)

I don't mean to be a naysayer, but I personally don't believe the food/infection link. Then again, better to be safe than sorry and people react differently to different triggers.

When I was attacked by a dog a few years ago and had to have surgery to the face, I tested my theory (yes, I was mad) and ate everything that was considered "tok" -- seafood, chicken, goose (yes goose as it was considered especially bad for you and i got someone to hunt down some goose for me), black soy sauce etc. I didn't just do it to piss off my Mom; I had 3 days of bland, "cheng" food and porridge and I thought -- enough! So I ate. And ate and ate some more. It was the only thing that kept me sane as looking in the mirror (Swollen eyes, nose, lips, scratches, bite marks etc) made me want to cry.

So anyway, 30 stitches on the face, open wounds etc and I am fine today. There are some very faint scars, one from where the dog tore off a triangular chunk of flesh above my eye, but it's been worked into my eyelid crease so you can't see it. The other one or two that I am aware of rest are practically nonexistent.

So, that's my experiment anyway. I won't say it didn't give my mom heart attacks and in hindsight i would have probably killed myself if i had developed tauyew-coloured scars, but I guess food affects some people and not others.

true! really depends on individual. and ouch! 30 stitches, that must have hurt, didn't it? oh well, you're lucky that your binging on ''tok'' foods didn't backfire. :lol:

Hi all,

Here to share with you some tip/experience onafter PS.


What can I expect after surgery?
There will be some swelling and stuffiness for several weeks, but patients usually resume normal light activity after a few days. It will take several weeks before the nose is completely healed to allow full physical activity.

What is the recovery period like?

You should be able to return to sedentary work after a couple of days. Although there is some pain in the first 24 hours, after this there is usually just a feeling of pressure and stuffiness.

You should keep your head elevated above the level of your heart for the first few days to reduce swelling. Bruising around the eyes is to be expected, usually peaking around 72 hours and subsiding in 4 to 5 days.

Cold compresses will help to reduce the swelling around the eyes. You may have a little bleeding too, so you will probably want to change your gauze bandages a few times a day for the first several days.

By the end of the first week, all splints, bandaging and stitches will have been removed. You will still need to be careful to not blow your nose for about two weeks, and avoid bumps to the nose for about six weeks.

You may not be completely back to normal for several weeks. Your nose might be numb, especially if there have been considerable changes made to the tip. You should use extra sunscreen, be gentle when washing your face, and avoid strenuous activity for about 4 weeks.


What is the long-term outcome like for most people?
It is common to feel dissatisfied with the appearance of the nose in the immediate post-operative period. At this point, the nose is still quite swollen, and much of the detail is still not visible enough to appreciate.

It is wise to take a wait-and-see approach since the elasticity of the tissues, the blood flow, the thickness of the skin and the appearance of the nose will change significantly during the first three months even up to the first year or two. It is important to be patient during this period of time. Rushing to perform a second operation during the first nine to twelve months is almost always a mistake.


What are the risks involved?
Rhinoplasty will provide significant improvements in the appearance of the nose for the vast majority of patients although, in occasional cases, a secondary correction may be required. There are risks with all surgical procedures. You should discuss all benefits and risks with your cosmetic surgeon.

oh ok.. yup festive season wld b busiest. Do be careful, alar after cutting the bottom to a certain degree, cant cut there anymore and will have to cut the part above the alar, might be visible. Do talk to the doctor first and see if it would be suitable for you, and hope ur recovery is good.
