  1. "Cutting half of the front yard or painting half of the house" – I'm in hysterics.

    I have a friend who just got her upper eyelids done and though this is something I don't want or need, I was wondering what the risks of such a procedure are and while cleaning, I just let the next videos keep playing and about fell off the step-ladder laughing when I heard that.

    My friend has always had somewhat lowered eyelids compared to other people, but nothing I thought that really stood out as totally unusual. She is 47.

    I was thinking if I were her, I would have done another part of my face first or as well. She is starting to get sagging jowls and chin and has always had these odd shelf-like structures in her skin at the top of her cheep bones.

    I was wondering how these kinds of differences play out over time. She does not have money to do anything else. Her mother paid for this because it was something she always wanted to do – even her 30's. Maybe it will look great though, but I am curious to see how this all looks over the long run.

  2. Does a (CO2 Laser Surgery) get rid of some what of your under eye bags and if so would a second procedure later on make it look even better ???
