... Hi! I just read your post with interest! I too have thyroid disease, for the past 30+ years, 11 years ago I had a U/L bleph due to puffy U/L lids with some starting bagginess underneath.

... to 2 weeks, depending on how well you follow your doctor's instructions. My doctor used dissolving stitches, so they didn't have to be removed. I had very hooded upper eyelids and no crease at all, and bags underneath. Now I have a small crease and NO BAGS UNDERNEATH! ... (5 replies)
... Thank you so much for posting on this Green Eyes. I can not afford it right now, but it is something I really would love to have done. Where did the Dr put the stitches when they lifted the lower and then upper lids? Is there any visible scars? How much time did you take off from work? Did you feel like it took about 10 years off the way you look? I do not really have any... (7 replies)
