Everything you need to know about eyelid surgery is in the Beauty Diary.
In Australia, people are getting more and more interested in a cosmetic procedure that involves cutting away skin from the face while the person is awake.
I don’t remember exactly when I first noticed that my eyelids were starting to droop, but I’ll never forget the moment I decided to do something about it and called a plastic surgeon.
On a Saturday morning, I was scrolling through Instagram when a beautiful picture of Julia Morris popped up on my feed.
In the picture, the comedian, who is now 54 years old, had bright eyes and a healthy glow. She wrote that she had recently had a blepharoplasty, or, as Julia put it, “eye beef removal.”
The change in her face was very clear.
I knew right away that I wanted the same thing to happen to me. I’ve always had hooded lids, but I’ve noticed that they have sagged a lot in the last few years.
As a woman in her 30s who likes to wear makeup, it bothered me for a few reasons.
First of all, I thought it made me look older than I really am. But it also made eyeshadow, eyeliner, and mascara hard to use and enjoy.
I couldn’t really wear eyeliner because it would make a half-moon shape on my upper lid where it touched my lower lashline. I could only get around it by using a quick-drying liquid type that I had to let set before I could open my eye again. Not good at all.
