Follow up

Firstly sorry for the lack of updates. I was planning to do an update and pics this week after my follow up with Mr Shoaib but then the big light in the hall blew and now I don’t have decent lighting (it’s the only area with really bright lighting) to take the pics.

So on to my follow up on Thursday 15th. Mr Shoaib said things looked how they should at this stage (just shy of 2 months). I showed him my scarring and he said some people scar badly and others have very little and I was probably in the middle of that scale. He said they would continue to fade and he would expect to see good improvement by 6 months. While having the consult I mentioned my lower eyes again as they feel a bit more obvious now (probably just in my mind) and he suggested again we could laser them to tighten the skin or use some fillers. Tempted to try the fillers but it’s £600 a tube and he said prob about half on each side. If I was confident of a great out come I’d do it in a heart beat but I’m worried that I won’t be happy with the outcome (worried that it will look puffy or lumpy). Might do a bit more research into the laser side of things. Anyway we left it that I’d come back to him if I wanted to proceed with the fillers or laser, otherwise I’d see him again at the 6 month stage.

As soon as the light is back working I’ll do some updated pics.

Happy New Year everyone. So it’s now just over 7 weeks since my surgery. I haven’t posted many pics or updates lately and to be honesty that’s partly down to things being hectic at work but also the fact that there isn’t really any major change happening. The first 2-3 weeks really saw almost daily changes and improvements but it all seems to have settled down and I guess the changes will be gradual over the next several months.



As those who’ve read my earlier posts will know, I was using a little concealer on the eyes to cover up the scarring and redness. Since this week I haven’t bothered. It’s not that it’s now not noticeable but I think it’s at the stage that I can get away with it, I guess it just make it look like my eyes are a little sore. The scar from the mole by the eye is still visible but I think it’s flattened down a little. Will be interesting to hear Mr Shoaib’s thoughts when I see him on the 15th.

Anyway that’s it for now. Will try and do some close ups from the side this weekend.
