Lifestyle ~ Blepharoplasty | Hooded Eyelid Surgery 1 Year Update (Part 10)

One year ago on April 27, 2015 I had Blepharoplasty aka upper eyelid surgery.  I was very transparent throughout the entire process and blogged the entire journey here on my blog (Blepharoplasty) as well as created a playlist on my YT channel (Blepharoplasty Playlist). While this will be my last post of this journey, I doubt that it will be my last plastic surgery.  I really want to have a breast reduction, but I'm going to wait until I have totally transformed my body from fat to muscle, that way I will be able to see how much of a reduction I really need.

At the one year mark, there's still a remarkable difference in the before and after photos even though my eyes have relaxed a lot.  My right eye (left on screen) will always have the little Ptosis droop. Ptosis is when the muscle becomes weak and cannot hold up the eyelid properly. It also takes away the crease fold which gives the eyes a distinct look.  It's more noticeable in the photo that show my full face below than these closeup photos.

Having a Blepharoplasty aka upper eyelid surgery has changed my life in some ways. I can see much better especially in my right eye that has Ptosis and Coloboma (coloboma is when the Iris does not fully close leaving a perpendicular shape to the Iris). Coloboma is a birth defect, but because my Iris is dark, it wasn't discovered until I was having vision problems at the age of 13. The eye doctor at that time asked me if someone hit me in the eye... I said I don't think so, then he asked my mom if she had seen the inside of my eyeballs and she said no... that's how it was discovered.  Back then, my eye doctor had never seen an Iris like mine and didn't even know what it was called.  It wasn't until years later that I had to have laser eye surgery to repair the nerve in the back of my eye that they told me what it was.
