I had known for some time that my ‘hooded eyes’ were covering what was once my best facial feature.
My eyes. Part of me I’ve always loved!
But a fold of skin has been gradually working its way south and eventually two folds of skin had been gradually hooding my vison.
I am comfortable in my own skin and accept the aging process. For this reason, I’m happy to admit that I have not succumbed to the Botox® and filler ‘pillow’ face that many of my age have.
But the gradual vanishing of my eyes started to give me some concern. Having confided in some girlfriends that I had been considering eyelid surgery, imagine my surprise to find that more than one friend had already gone down this road!
One recommended a local clinic and surgeon, and that is how I found myself in front of Mr Ian Morgan in the Harley Street Clinic in Reigate. This was another surprise, as I did not know that this gem was literally on my doorstep.
I wanted a result that looked natural and not obvious. I wanted to stay looking like me – my face, my eyes; but with a removal of the tired look.
What Mr Morgan proposed was an upper blepharoplasty to give me back a socket line and take away the excess skin folds that were hiding my eyes. My eyes now look like they did 15 years ago.
Refreshed. Youthful. Well defined.
I am so pleased with the results. I look natural, with a natural crease line and neatly formed lids. The change is so subtle but effective, that people who have not seen me for a while may look quizzically at me, but they can’t place why I look different. I have not had to reveal my cosmetic treatment to the world; I have only told my nearest and dearest.
Since this picture, I also secretly had eyeliner tattooing in Harley Street Clinic Reigate. This has defined my eyes even more. I can honestly say that the combination of these treatments has taken 25 years off my eyes. Both Rae Denman who did my semi-permanent make up and Mr Ian Morgan, were absolute perfectionists through the whole process.
I love my new look. It has restored my confidence and pride in my best feature, and opened my eyes to what’s possible.
