There is nothing more confronting than looking in the mirror sometimes and seeing the reflection staring back at you and wishing (as many of us do) that we looked different or could change some part of what we see. I have felt this way, for as long as I can remember when it comes to the bags under my eyes.
I hate my photo being taken purely because of my bags. If absolutely necessary, and as long as it is a fine day – I’ll be wearing my sunglasses in absolutely every photo of me that may exist (unless of course the photo is of me in the distance)! I have tried numerous eye products that purport to reduce puffiness, wrinkles and make bags disappear with a miracle cream or serum!! I can’t tell you how many I have tried but I have finally given up and realised I need more help than just a cream at a beauty counter. It would appear that the fat pockets under my eyes aren’t an easy fix (but given the amount of money I have spent on magical potions) – I have decided that the time has come to go under the knife and get rid of the offending fat once and for all.
I have visited three different eye specialists in Auckland, who have offered a couple of options to me. As this isn’t a decision to be taken lightly I need a level of comfort not easily achieveable? It’s not a cheap operation; I need to have faith in the surgeon; and there is really only one chance to get it right as cutting around the eye requires such precision!
I am hoping this will help age me gracefully and give me confidence to be happy in how I look. There is only so much that make-up can hide before you realise more drastic action is required. The proof will be when I look in the mirror and like what is staring back at me. Wish me luck!!
