Plastic surgery (in English)

(Article in English cause can’t type Chinese characters on my laptop)

 

This time I returned to Taiwan to attend two conferences – the official reason I told my boss. Most importantly, I was thinking of gaining some “extra value” during my stay.

 

And… the following messages were exchanged between me and a respectful plastic surgery doctor.

 

Me: Dear Doc, can you make my eyelids double?

(Students were not afraid of me. Partly because when I stared at them, they had difficulties to find my eyes.)

(I believe my eyes would look larger if I’ve got double eyelids and I also apply some makeup on my eyelids.)

 

Doc: Dear Miss, according to my professional opinion, you don’t need a double-eyelid surgery.

 

Me: Oh, really?

(I was supposing he may suggest some magic eye makeup instead.)

 

Doc: What you need is – a face lift!

Doc: Specifically, you need a forehead lift. After you’ve had that, your original inner double eyelids could be quite obvious. You may not need any more surgery then.

Doc: Let’s see… when are you available? I can arrange the operation for you now cause you come from overseas.

 

Me: But… Let me reconsider and contact you again. Thanks very much Doc!

(Appeared to be invisible as fast as I can… )

Several days later, I told a close friend about my plan.

She said: “Hmmm, then you may always look being surprised if you had that surgery…”

Me: That could be a good thing though. So I would be very convincing before I replied to a question raised by a student. Cause I would always say: “Oh, that’s a very good question!

So maybe, I should have that surgery next time I return to Taiwan…

facelift vs eyelid lift
2013/01/15 04:54

facelift! My friend told that facelifting should be done before 50 to achieve the best result. Now she is 67, I could not tell if she ever had the facelift.  However, her eye lids look a bit strange from facelift prodecures.  And I believe this is the cause for her severe dry eyes which requires daily Restasis drops. 

Psycholobically, she feels her facelift still in effect.  Oh, btw, she had it done in Taiwan and when she returned to US, she had to see another plastic surgeon due to thick and red scars formed right behind her ears. 

It's good that you disappeared in no time. 

fyi, you can go to eye surgeon if you really need a eyelid lifted if your vision is blocked.  for say, ptosis.

Oh, thanks so much for providing such a detailed explanation, Marsha! To be honest, I've tried to avoid any operation, not mentioning getting one which is not necessary! :-)
