Hey, look, I have eyes!!! And without makeup. Normally when I would smile, my squinting would make my eyes completely disappear. so that they are still visible, even with some remaining swelling, is just outstanding. The chin has a funky thing on it. Some scar tissue normally forms around the site where they put in the canula (sp?), so I use warm compresses and massage to work that out quicker, though they say it will resolve itself even without that over the course of about three months. But that’s why there’s the little almost cleft in the chin, the scar site is in the middle, and there there is a little bit of overscarring on each side that I’m massaging out, and there is still swelling from the chin back to the neck that very slowly is disappearing. All the makeup I have on my face is a little MUFE Body and Face Foundation, that gorgeous new Chanel blush, and I put on Trish eyeshadow base and groomed my eyebrows. The scar is there in the crease, but with my eyes open, you can barely see it, and it is disappearing more every day, but anyone looking can easily find it still.
For those of you keeping score or who just need to be updated that are new to the site, this is what I’ve done to my face in the last year or so:
Juvederm in the lips and a little on the side of my mouth running to my chin that has a crease
IPL laser (about 3-4 treatments) to help broken capillaries and sun damage
Lipo of the jowls
What I think I still want to do:
Fill in the tear troughs under the eye with juvaderm and… well, I think that’s it! It’s been an interesting two weeks, with one bad low as I looked in the mirror and thought… what have I done?!?!?! and the feeling now that it was worth it, and the change is a good one that will just keep getting better.
Scented Note: I was out shopping for the new Smokey Eyes from Chanel quad today, along with their new mascara, and I looked and looked for some new, interesting perfumes to smell… and nada. Harfumph. So instead I’m here to tell you that the new beige/chocolate brown Chanel quad that’s the LE for Christmas is TDF. Get on a wait list now. I’ve only seen the picture of it, but all the Chanel quads are so much more beautiful in person, so I’ll buy this one as soon as someone will take my money for it. I really have a serious addiction to the Chanel quads, it’s a sickness, truly. Okay, me below with my eyes on, and this is th enew Chanel Smokey Eyes quad, which dark grays/blacks normally are much too dark on me, so that I can get by with this dark of an eye is either due to the surgery or to that lovely Chanel quad.. or both!
