Surgery was February 10, 2009 by the same surgeon who did my nose.

I am healing in these photos.

So far I am pretty satisfied, and am hoping I get to thrilled.

Contact me with any questions! :)

Hi Bambistar,

I just saw this today and hope your surgery went well!

WIth my lower lids I had both fat and skin removed. Two incisions.

One on the inside (no stitches) where the fat was extracted and another on the outside to remove loose skin.

I cannot even tell where the incision is on my lower lids!

I'm one year post op today. :)

PM me if you'd like! I'll be updating w/pics soon. :)

Hi. Thank you so much for posting you pictures and comments about your surgery and recovery. Your eyes look amazing. With respect to your lower eye lids, did you have skin and fat removed or just fat? I am having lower bleph in 2 weeks. Thanks again for all the pics and info you have posted!

I'm getting mine done on Feb 9th. Is there anything you can tell me to expect?
goldennoseFrom: goldennose | 2010-01-12 15:19:25


I didn't tell anybody at first, aside from a few friends, stayed in hiding for 10 days until I could wear makeup.. and my husband and I had to be somewhere that night.
You can on the day 10 photo it all looked pretty nice considering I'd just had surgery.
Other days I wore light sunglasses and it helped. Even inside. You can get by with glasses. My husband is having the surgery soon (his wont be as major... just some skin removed) and is planning on wearing his glasses and using my coverup. :)
On days where I didn't have to be anywhere I wore zero makeup and allowed my scars to breathe. The started using various scar treatments.
If you're considering it, research it then go for it. I'm so happy I did mine. :) PM me if you'd like more images or information.

Hi Goldennose,
Wow just went through all your pics and details. Thanks so much for doing that. I am thinking of having the surgery but I'd really like to not tell anyone I am having it done (ex husband of course). Is that stupid to try to pull off? I could probably stay "hid out" until all stiches are out but even that would be tough. But if I can manage it, could I pull it off with the help of makeup after the stiches are out? It looks like you did. The reason I think I might could do it, is that I wear glasses (which sure help me to hide the bags and tiredness look right now!). What do you think?
By the way, you do look great and I'm glad you are so happy with the results!!!!

I just got a message from someone (MMHeals link isn't working so I don't know who to respond to directly, my apologies) regarding what make up I'm wearing on day 10.

It's pretty much my same every day makeup. It's hiding things well, you can still see the incision a little but it's bette with make up than with out.

~Prescriptives colour match foundation even over the eye lids
~"Eye Bright" from Benefit. It comes in a stick and I used it under my eyes

~This is the most important step and it comes in a set of concealer and powder to set: Bobbi Brown's Creamy Concelear in Warm Beige which hides the redness and Pale Yellow powder which looks translucent to me.

~Demablend is fantastic as well if you don't care for Bobbi Brown. Match your skin tone and set it with powder.

~Cliniques eyeliner in Espresso

~Clinique colour surge eyeshadow duo in Sunburst. Only I didn't use the sunburst colour I used the lighter shade that came with it.

~Very carefully curled lashes with MAC's Zoom Lash mascara in black.

Wendy I got your PM and responded. :)

I also gave you my email address.

Thank you for the compliment. I'm very happy I did my eyes. I never look tired nor do I hear, "You look tired... have you been sleeping OK." :D So great!

Hi Goldennose,

I PMed you with some questions about my progress. I too had a rhino and bleph with Dr. G. Please let me know if you got my PM. I'd really appreciate your thoughts on my progress. By the way, you look beautiful!
GoldennoseFrom: Goldennose | 2009-10-30 22:29:02


Thank you so much. I just got your note here.

As of today 10/31/09 I am beyond thrilled with my outcome. Thank you for your sweet words as well.

I hope you are happy with your eyes, face and brow. I'm thinking I may need a brow and face lift down the line. Botox helps for now and really tightens things up with my brow. It stinks to go it alone. Even if I didn't have my husband I would do what you did and you are very brave for doing so! Bravo to you!

Recently I had to have a teeny section of my scar reworked and my doctor (Dr. Golden) was so fantastic about it. The stitches have been out for a few days and things are healing the same way as in the pictures.

No regrets. My doctor says this should last me about 15-20 years. Yay! :)

Thank you so much for your extremley frank and informative posting. You are obviously a very beautifull and intelligent woman and your results are brilliant.
I'm so glad for you that you had a supportive husbamd behind you, it must make all the difference. I have had to 'go it alone' unfortunately. I am sixty one years old and have had Brow lift, face lift and upper and lower blephs so things have been quiet drastic really. Reading how other women have had similar fears to mine is strangley helpfull. Maybe one day I will be able to post some pics off myself on this site and also help support others.
Thanks again.

nose pictures are in my "nose album" :)
GoldennoseFrom: Goldennose | 2009-07-11 20:14:58

My pic is in my profile and I've posted them on Rhion4u under "Firefly."

Also, I email them out to everyone who asks since the show my ENTIRE face and I'm a fairly private person. If you'd like to see pictures, please email me. :)
msweetszFrom: msweetsz | 2009-07-09 17:24:24

why dont you have pictures of your nose?....you keep singing dr.goldens praises but you havent posted any pictures of your actual nose...not suspicious at all.
crystalgirlzFrom: crystalgirlz | 2009-05-26 14:54:06

Goldennose your eyes look absolutely beautiful, I think your surgeon did a fantastic job. It looks fresh and subtle and one cannot tell you had anything done.

It ran under my lower lash line,but not hidden under. It ran from edge to edge along the lashes but not past the outer edge and not near the inner tear duct. If that makes sense.

You can't see it in the pictures because it is GONE! :D I had a hard time finding it after day 10. :)

It is such a nonissue for me and healed almost straight away. My upper lids are taking longer but that is to be expected.
I remember my doc. telling me the skin on the eye heals the best on the body, or something like that.
help911From: help911 | 2009-03-19 15:24:49

Im curious if you had the skin pinch with your lower bleph...??and if so...how far did the stitching extend to??
GoldennoseFrom: Goldennose | 2009-03-06 18:31:01

I know mickey3. :)
I wasn't prepared for what I looked like when I looked in the mirror and had a really hard time believing things would get better.
The stitches and scars afterward had me reeling with anxiety and I get fairly stressed quite easily.
This is is normal. Your post-op, taking medication, recovering, feeling lousy... that all contributes to how you feel. My doctor put me at ease about everything.
I had my nose done too at the same time. It is flawless. :) And I know my eyes will be the same way.
mickey3From: mickey3 | 2009-03-06 09:51:55

I think you look absolutely beautiful and can only hope I look like you do. I had my Upper Bleph on 3/4 and get my stitches out on Monday, the 9th. I look pretty horrid, as expected. I am panicking about the scars but I know I have to be patient. Thank you for posting your pics and giving hope, it's helped me tremendously.
GoldennoseFrom: Goldennose | 2009-03-05 01:23:25

Thank you neweyes47. This is quite a journey! I'm already seeing an improvement when comparing day 7-8 to my March 4 (no makeup pic).

*Breathing again* LOL Post op nerves are calmed. :D

Hi Michele,
You appear to be healing very well. I know you are fretting about the upper lid scar ..It will Improve! I went through the same worry when I had my revision. Keep smiling
