22 months old Double Eye Lids | Recommended Hotels in Taipei near Regent Clinic!

Hello everyone! It has been close to 22 months since my double eyelids surgery and i’m glad that my sharing has helped many in one way or another.. 🙂

Recently, i’m getting many emails from readers asking me for recommendation for hotels which is near to the clinic and also the current state of my double eyelids.. Hence, i will just do a quick update to show you how does my eyes look like currently and also some accommodations that i have stayed in Taipei during recent years.

First and foremost, present to you my close to 2 years old double eyelids (Pardon the little eyeliner bits left behind after cleaning away my eye makeup). The crease was what i chosen* for – Not too low in height and natural so it won’t look weird when i’m not wearing any makeup.

*To refresh your memory, Dr Chen simulated three different level of crease based on my 黃金定位點 and I chose the medium crease as i wanted a more obvious result but not too high crease!

As for the scar from the incision, it has healed really nicely. The scar is small and not really visible even closeup. Many people were surprised that i went for surgery as they couldn’t tell (as there’s no visible scarring and result is so natural).

Natural looking double eyelids without much scarring! 🙂

The appearance of my eyes with heavy eye make-up (Mascara, falsies, eyeliner & eyeshadow). Picture was taken during my pre-wedding shoot and the rare occasion whereby i will have such thick makeup on.

As for the recommended hotels, i will suggest staying in Da-an area as it is strategically located 1 stop away from ZhongXiao Dun Hua Station. Personally i love staying in this area as the location is good (near the major attractions and shopping centers) and there’s plenty of food around the vicinity. One stop from Daan station is Zhongxiao Fuxing station from where you can interchange to the Blue Bannan line (Most of the tourist attractions are accessible through this line) and the nearest station to Regent Clinic.. Have stayed in 3 different hotels located near Da-an station and they are Fu Hao Hotel, Park Taipei Hotel and Hotel Eclat.

Fu-Hua Hotel (Approximately $100 plus per night for smallest room)

Sorry but i don’t have the pictures of the room that i stayed in previously (if i never remember wrongly, i was having an arguement with my hubby so i wasn’t in the mood to take pictures. LOL!). However, you can check the pictures out via Tripadvisor 

Out of the 3 hotels, Fu-Hua Hotel has the best location as it is only less than 30 seconds walk from Da-an MRT station. Seems like a family run hotel and check in/out was relatively fast. Upon check in, i was surprised to receive keys instead of security card.. Personally, i don’t find it safe as it might slip your mind and there’s risk of forgetting to lock the door when you head out..

Room wise, the furnishing ia contemporary and pleasing to the eye. As we stayed in the executive room (商務客房), there wasn’t much space left as the king size bed took up most of it.. My hubby had to leave his luggage near to the door area while i put mine on the other side of the room (if not, it will be impossible to open up our luggage). The bed and pillows are lush and comfortable.. Entire room is very clean and there isn’t any no weird / stale scent in the room. Bathroom is on the smaller side as well and there’s no bathtub. Clean towels and toiletries are provided.. WLAN is fast and stable… Breakfast was provided and it was Taiwanese buffet fare style.. Food selections were limited but tasted nice.. 🙂

Will recommend this hotel if you are looking for one which is affordable with good location.

Park Taipei Hotel  (Approximately $200 per night for superior king on Agoda (limited time offer deal))

Decided to stay in this hotel as there was a flash sales going on Agoda and we paid about $150 for the deluxe King Room (Room Only).. During the point of booking, we were not very sure on the exact location and all we knew that i was located in Da-an area. Upon reaching Park Taipei Hotel, we were pleased to find that the hotel is located in a good location. Da-an station is located just a 2 min walk away (across the road)… We also observed that there’s a new station in the midst of construction and it is just located outside the hotel! Not sure when will it be ready but it should make communing even more convenient in the future (Hope the hotel won’t increase the room rates!)

Room – Spacious with ample space for walking even with all the furnishing + 2 open luggage. Bed has good support (medium firm) and comfortable with silky linen!  Pillows are plush and not too soft.. Amenities wise and aircon are working fine but WLAN is a little weak as we got the corner room.. My hubby went to test the signal strength nearer to the lift area and it was better there. Room is carpeted and very clean without stale smell.

Toilet- Huge toilet for the room that we have stayed in. Completed with bath tub, separate shower area and complete set of toiletries. Temperature control for shower is easy to control and drainage is good. .

Environment- Located across the road and within 2 mins walk from Da-an station, the location is a big plus point to make travelling easy. Security is good as you will need your room access card to activate the lift and also the door of your own room..

 Services- Excellent!! Once you alight from the taxi, there would be someone helping you with your luggage. Everyone was all smiles and very helpful. The staffs were very quick to react to our requests and needs. Check in was fast and they allowed us to check in 2 hours before time without us even requesting for it (first time we have encountered this as most hotels in Taipei are really strict with the check in time). The manager even show us to the room and gave us a room introduction…

Will recommend this hotel if you are looking for one with top-notch service, comfortable room and good location.

King Size Bed

Ample Space to walk around and to open our luggage

Robe, Safe & Drinking Water Provided

Toilet is big and has a separate shower area

Toiletries are provided

Soaking in the bathtub and watching TV is made possible

Hotel Eclat (Approximately $250 per night for Deluxe room)

This boutique hotel is highly raved online and we were attracted to the furnishing and decoration of the hotel. Although location is not so good (about 10-15 mins walk to Da-an MRT station), the room definitely made up for this short coming.

The 5 star service experience started with us alighting from the taxi, immediately the staff came forward and helped us with our luggage. Upon reaching the counter, the receptionist addressed my husband by his surname even before he said anything. Check in was done fast and the receptionist even brought us up to the room while giving us a hotel / room tour. Even we asked for directions, they patiently explained to us twice to make sure that we understood. All i can say is that all the staffs were really attentive, service oriented and polite!

Eclat is a boutique hotel with luxurious & stylish feel! From the hotel lobby to the rooms, it is classy decorated with a prestige feel!! To access to your room level, you would need to tap your room card so security is good. Upon entering our  deluxe room, i was all surprised to see it filled with high-end equipments (even the toilet bowl and LED lighting! LOL!). The room might be small for some, space was sufficient for the 2 of us as we could open our luggage and still walk around comfortably. Almost all the items in the room are of top quality, – TV, sound system, pen, toilet bowl, coffee machine etc were all branded! Even the writing pen is from Mont Blanc and the toiletries are from Molten Brown! Sleep quality was good as well as you get to choose the type of pillows that you like..

Room service was quick and prompt as something was wrong with the safe upon check in. The maintenance team came within 10 mins and replace the flat battery. Excellent service recovery!  Oh yaa! I have to mention about the breakfast! They served nice english breakfast set and i could even request for egg benedict!

The staff went all the way out even when we checked out, making sure that we have enough water to drink and even offered us food. They helped us to get a taxi and even walked us to the taxi while helping us with our luggage. Overall, it was a good experience and will highly recommend if you don’t mind the location, want to pamper yourself a little for a different luxurious feel.

Such a beautiful room with high-tech features and i love the bed linen’s design (king sized bed)!

Different types of pillows given!

Complementary tasty local treat + Weather of the day

Average sized room

One of the installed gadgets completed with branded sound-system

Nespresso and Fruits provided! I have the feature the damn cool phone and clock!

Even the hangers are so stylish! Hubby told me that the safe that the hotel provided is a really good one.

Really love the bathroom furnishing (There’s a TV inside too). Enough said!

Molten Brown miniature toiletries, comprehensive shower facilities and Deluxe Toto Toilet

My Journey to obtaining Double Eye Lids (8 months post surgery)

Hello everyone!! I have many readers who want to know how the scar from the incision looks like..

Tried my best to capture it closed up and you can see that the scar is really tiny.. It is not visible unless you stand really close to me… 

DSC02884-1DSC02881

Dr Chen gave me a scar removal cream to use 2 weeks after the surgery but i only applied it for one week (lazy me! haha)..
Even without applying the scar removal cream religiously, the wound still heals really nicely and doesn’t leave behind much scarring.. 

That’s all about my double eye lids surgery and experiences.. If you have any questions, please feel free to leave me a comment or email me.. 

*Disclaimer: Results might varies among individuals and please do not take my outcome and experiences as a form of benchmark.. 

My Journey to obtaining Double Eye Lids (Surgery procedures & post surgery experiences)

Hello everyone!!! Finally i’m able to find time to blog about my double eyelid procedures.. It has been about 6 months post surgery and i’m really happy with the results.. People have been telling me that it looks really natural… About the scarring, all i can say is that unless you stand really close and stare hard at my eyelids, then you can see the small scar.. 🙂

Took this picture about one week ago while i was in Krabi.. Even with Zero Make-up, my eyes look so much awake and bigger..

So now, i’ll touch on the surgery procedures… I’ll try my best to recall and pen down each and small details.. I’ll suggest that you read the first post before reading this and here’s Part One in case you have missed it.. As i was’t allow to take pictures in the clinic, the following will be full of words so please bear with me..
 

1) As mentioned, i went to the clinic for consultation and it lasted for about 45 mins… I chose to do the surgery right after consultation as i would not be spending many days in Taiwan.. The nurse got me to fill up some consent forms and after which, i made the full payment of NT25000 (which includes the consultation charges, surgery fee, medicine and aftercare).. In case you are wondering, i paid for everything in full and this is not sponsored!

 

2) After more briefing of the procedures by the nurse, they led me into a room to change.. They handled me a warm and fluffy pyjamas and i was told to remove all jewellery (so as not to interfere with the medical equipment in the room).. I also spent some time trying to pin up my hair… When i was done, I was brought to see Dr Chen he explained the entire surgical process to me. Next, he confirmed the height of the crease that i wanted and made a making on both lids.. To make sure that the creases are even, he told me to open and close my eyes a few times to double confirm.

3) Next, i was led into the surgery room which is really big, clean and not intimidating… Was told to lie down and the nurse really put at ease by covering me with blanket and making sure i was ok.. My hair and ears were covered with a antibacterial cap. While the nurse and doctor Chen prepared for the surgery, they explained the procedure to me again to keep me prepared. My ankle was also strapped to a machine which i have forgotten to ask what is it for.. haha! At the same time, Dr Chen started to sterilise my face with alcohol swabs.. Once again, he explained the procedure to me again and told me to voice out if i experience any discomfort during the surgery. He was wearing a surgical mask with a blue dot and i was told that i have to open my eyes during the surgery and stare at the blue dot .. I was told to practice doing it a few times and he told me that the surgery would commence shortly..

4) When i was ready to start, he told me that he would be using very fine needle to administer LA to my eye area.. He also told me that this would be the most painful part of the surgery. As you know our eyes are really sensitive but Dr Chen was really very gentle during the injection.. The needle is also very fine so i don’t find it painful (Felt like tint ant bite) when he injected the LA into the outer corner of each eye (just uncomfy due to the sourish sensation when the fluid was being injected)… The nurse told me to relax and try not to tense up as this might result in bruising…

5) After the LA jab was administered, i was told to close my eyes and rest for 15-20 mins for the LA to take effect..  The nurse stayed behind and attend to me.. She chatted with me about Taiwan and the procedures while massaging my eye areas to speed up the full effect of the LA…

6) After sometime, Dr Chen came in the room with another nurse and he informed me that he was doing to start the operation. Once again, he told me to relax and just voice out if i experienced any discomfort. He also reminded me keep my eyes close gently and open it whenever i was told.. He proceeded to make sure that the LA was working and when i told him i cannot feel a thing, he started the operation..

7) Dr Chen started on my right eye first and I couldn’t felt any sensation at all on my eye area.. All i experienced were some movements on my eyelids.. Before Dr Chen started on anything, he informed what he was gonna to do next… Throughout the entire process, he kept reminding to relax as i tensed up really easily…. He also checked with me constantly as to whether I felt any pain or discomfort…. During the 1 hour procedure, my mind was blank but i remembered that he told me to open my eyes wide to look at the blue dot on his mask to allow him to check on the height of the creases..

8) The only discomfort part was during the fats extraction part where i felt a slight tugging and achy sensation.. Informed Dr Chen immediately and he dripped some LA on it… Another part of the operation which i disliked the most would be the stopping of bleeding and closing of incision part.. An equipment with a buzzing sound was used and after which i could smell my ‘burning’ flesh (smells like chao-da chicken wings.. haha)… It was repeated a few times during the surgery and i was trying my best to put up with the charred flesh smell.

9) The surgery was done really fast (was told that it was one hour) and the nurse adjusted the bed so that i can sit upright… Dr Chen told me that the surgery went on really well and i was handed a mirror… To be frank, i was quite surprised to see the newly created double eyelids as the creases seem high and unnatural.. Dr Chen told me that once the swell goes down, the creases will look more natural… He also showed me two big piece of fats extracted (It was yellowish and reddish and it looks really bouncy)… Dr Chen said that my left eyelid has more fats so he extracted more and therefore i will have more swelling on the left.. Hence, my left eye will be more swollen than the right so the crease will be higher too… But Dr Chen rest-assured me and told me that the crease will balance out after the swelling goes down in 1-2 months..  He also show me the two tiny wound which were neatly stitched up..

10) The nurse led me out the room to change and they called my bf as he went out for coffee.. After changing, the nurse did cold compression for me and told me to rest for 15-20 mins.. After which, I was led back to the consultation room and Dr Chen briefed me on the aftercare.. I was given 2 days’ supply of oral antibiotics, painkiller, one tube of antibiotic ointment and 2 cold packs.. The nurse demonstrated to my bf on how to apply the ointment onto my wound. The ointment can be reapplied whenever the wound area feels dry.. I was also instructed to keep the wound dry and to do cold compression every hour to keep the swelling down…

11) The nurse also scheduled an appointment on 6th day (post-surgery) for the removal of stitches… After making sure i was okay, the nurse bidded goodbye and told me that i can call them anytime if i experience any abnormality…

POST SURGERY PICTURES

Day One

(One hour after surgery)

This picture was taken 3 hours after surgery and crease was high and unnatural.. Swelling has already started to kick in and i did not experience any pain… Eye area felt a little sore which cold compression helps to reduce the sore sensation..

At night, i did not experience any pain and i ventured out in search for comfort food… I’m not supposed to do this since i have to do cold compression and rest my eyes…  I won’t recommend that you follow what i did but if you really want, please remember to shield your eyes with spectacles / sunglasses and apply a thick layer of ointment to protect it from dust / water.

Day Two

The creases increased in size due to the swelling but i was prepared for it… It is very important to be mentally prepared so that you won’t feel lousy as negative thoughts / anxitiy will slow down healing.. The swelling made it a little hard for me to open my eyes totally and my bf kept saying i looked sleepy.. wahahaha! But despite of the swelling, no pain was experienced..

I increased the frequency of cold compression (every 45 mins once) to reduce the soreness and swelling… Therefore, do prepare more eye-masks so that you have enough masks to ‘ice’ the eye area often… How to do cold compression? Just make sure that the eye-mask are cold (Not freezing cold) and put a clean piece of tissue / gauze on your eye area.. After which, put the eye-mask over and make adjustments so that the mask covers your eye area properly.. Leave it on for about 15-20 mins.. After removal, make sure that you apply another layer of ointment (if most of it went onto the tissue/gauze).

I went out at night since i was feeling so bored!!! Applied a thick layer of ointment and i did mininal walking.. My poor bf has to carry my stuff for me as i was told not to exert too much force (Excuses.. hahaha!)

Day Three

Still swollen but swelling went down a little.. As being told, my left eye would be more swollen and i saw some red marks on my lower lids.. Brusing was taking place (damn it!!!)

Increased the frequency of compression again to reduce the swell and bruising…

Went to explore Dan Shui in the evening and apparently there’s ‘Han Liu” so temperature was only 10 degree.. Now i can have natural cold compression.. LOL!

Day Four and Five

Swelling went down significantly but the amount of bruising increased… Called the clinic and they told me it is normal and i just have to keep doing compression.. Even on normal circumstances, i obtained bruises very easily so i told myself not to get too alarmed! Wound area started to get itchy (signs of healing! Yay!) and there’s a tight sensation whenever i blink..
 

Went to Beitou for Hot Spring which IS NOT RECOMMENDED as hot spring will increase blood circulation which will increase swelling.. Please do not follow my bad example.. 😀

Day Six

Bruising continues to ‘travel downwards’ but i told myself to ignore it… Went to the clinic to remove my stitches and i was told to proceed to a room for cold compression in order to numb the area (No LA will be used for stitches removal)… After 15 mins, Dr Chen came into the room and told me that the wound healed very well.. Dr Chen sterlized the incision wound with Alcohol and i heard him making a snip on the thread.. After which, the thread was removed swiftly and it just felt like ant bites.. After the removal of stitches, the annoying tight sensation was gone and the nurse applied the ointment onto the wound area..

Dr Chen also taught me an eye exercise which will help to strength the eyelid muscle, reduce swelling and enhance the end result of the double eyelids.. The nurse also told me that this exercise will increase the size of my eyes… All i have to do is to slowly roll up my eyeballs as high as possible without tilting my head and raising my eyebrows. Only my eyeballs are supposed to move and i must feel the tension on the eyeball and upper eyelid. I must maintain it for a few seconds and after which slowly roll my eyeballs down… I’m suppose to do it 20 times or more every hour. 

Sound simple but i kept raising my eyebrows while doing it… He told me that i can one fist to ‘feel’ my eyebrows (so that i won’t raise it unknowingly and use another fist to aid my eyeballs. To end the session, Dr Chen also told to avoid rubbing my eyes, not to engage in strenuous activities and bending forward for the next 1 month. I was also given 2 tubes of anti-swelling cream which can only be used 1 month after the surgery.. Before leaving the clinic, the nurse repeated a summary of what Dr Chen said and told me that i can call them when needed.. She also told me to pay them a visit the next time i am in Taiwan..

To sum it up, I will highly recommend Regent Clinic and Dr Chen as he is really meticulous and passionate in his work.. Not forgetting the really good service and care that i have received from each and everyone in the clinic… If you want to get double eyelids with more natural results, affordable and does not compromise on quality, i’ll really recommend this place!!

This is how i look 10 days after surgery.. I resumed the use of make-up but i practiced extra caution during make up removal..

The creases became balanced after 1.5 months and the double eyelids became very natural after 5 months.. After the surgery, applying eye-make up to obtain dolly eyes is a breeze! 🙂

Some tips to help prepare you for the surgery

1) Do sufficient research so that you can be mentally prepared on what to expect.. Please note that you will be awake during the procedure but try to keep your thoughts positive.. It is really not as scary as you think.. 🙂

2) Prep your body for the surgery, check out this post on what i did before surgery.. Personally, i feel that Pineapple juice / Pineapple helps to reduce swelling so try to drink / eat it after each meal.. In Taiwan, you can find it in their food court or night market.. Also, try to reduce your salt intake as this will increase swelling.. Do ask for an extra pillow so that you can sleep with your head elevated to help reduce swelling..

3) Get a travel buddy to accompany you and take care of you during your stay in Taiwan.. Since i cannot bend forward, my bf was the one helping me to wash my hair.. He was also the one helping me with my luggage and giving me mental support…

4) Do keep skincare procedures as minimal as possible.. Makeup is a big no no so please avoid it.. Just cleanse, tone and moisturize to keep skin clean.. Splashing your face with water is impossible so you can wipe your cleansing foam with Sponge after massaging your face with cleanser.. Follow up by your toner and moisturizer… As for the residue built up on your eyelid area, you can cleanse it gently with a wet cotton bud to keep the area clean.. Remember to apply a clean layer of ointment after doing so. 🙂

5) Personally i feel that it is much better to get the surgery done during their winter season.. Weather will be cold and drier which i fekt that it aids healing better as you won’t sweat as much (also face won’t get oily that fast)… I really dislike the weather in Singapore (HOT AND HUMID) and i gave up applying the ointment in Singapore since it will literally ‘melt’… I have oily eyelids so the ointment will just ‘melt’ and it will get into my eyes.. Very very Annoying!!!

That’s all for now and I’ll add in more details if i manage to recall it.. But please feel free to leave a comment if you have any questions.. 🙂

My Journey to obtaining Double Eye Lids (My double eye lids surgery)

Many of you should have known by now that i did my double eyelid surgery in Taiwan…
Why this decision and why Taiwan?Since young, i have uneven eyelids(left eye has a weak line and my right eye has none) with excessive fats.
It is really frustrating to do my eye-make up as it will be uneven and non-visible despite of the efforts made..
Double eyelids glue and stickers will be of no use to be due to my fatty + puffy eyelids.. Due to the unevenness, It is also difficult to put on falsie to enlarge the appearance of my eyes.

Decided to go ahead with this surgery after i’m done with my PT degree studies as i wish to reward myself for all the hard work put in…

That’s my eyes without any make-up

My eyes with heavy eye make-up and falsies..
(Note the unevenness and puffy eyes even with a lot of eye-make up)

I have consulted a doctor in Singapore as i wanted to do the Suture Method initially…
There will be no incision (Cut) made to create folds on the eyelids as eyelids will be sewn instead..

This method has lesser risk, lower downtime and it is reversible (in case you are not happy with the outcome).
Since 3-points suture will be used to secure the folds in place, this method will not be permanent..
As per my research, knots will loosen / break within a few years so you have do the procedure again..

However, i have too much fats on my eyelids so this method is not suitable for me..
Little or No fats cannot be extracted using this method so my lids will be putting a lot of pressure of the suture (eeekss! Imagine if it breaks when i rubs my eyes)

Hence, i have decided to go for the incision method as it is permanent and fats can be extracted! 🙂

Under the incision method, there’s conventional and mini-incision method…

Under the conventional method, an incision of 2-3 cm will be made.. Excessive fats and skin can be removed so results will be permanent..

Under the mini-incision method, a mini incision of 0.5 – 0.8 cm will be made.. Excessive fats can be removed but not excess skin… As such, this method will not be suitable for more matured individuals with droopy / saggy eyelids.

Decided to go ahead with the mini-incision method as there are lesser downtime and complication. I also don’t fancy long scars on both lids which will seem so unnatural. Moreover, i do not have saggy skin on my eyelids and there’s no need to remove excess skin…

No one in Singapore is using this technique so i decided to head to Taiwan for it..
In addition, the cold weather will prevent me from sweating (which will not irritate my wound). Nobody in Taiwan will recognize me so i will feel more at ease (which will speed up recovery as well)…

Called up 麗晶 整形外 to fix up an appointment before booking my air tickets..
Over the phone, the nurse told me that i need to remain in Taiwan for at least 4 days after the surgery for removal of stitches (Which means stitches removal can be done on 5th day post surgery)..

Over the phone, the nurse told me to avoid taking chinese herbs and supplements one week before the surgery; also to avoid using glue / stickers on my eyelids…


My surgery was scheduled on the 02 Jan 2012 (i flew over to Taiwan on 01 Jan 2012).
Upon reaching Taiwan, i called up 麗晶 to confirm my appointment and the nurse once again reminded me not to take any supplements and herbs.. Also, she mentioned that i could have my breakfast before coming over and advised me to have a shower first as i won’t be able to wash my hair properly after the surgery.

My appointment was at 10.30 am and the clinic is strategically located so i did not face any problems finding it. The clinic is located at the intersection of Zhong Xiao Dong Lu and Fu Xing Lu. Once you come out from exit 2, you can see the building directly across.

板南線 - 忠孝復興站 二號出口 (東方大廈)
木柵線 - 忠孝復興站 二號出口 (東方大廈)
忠孝東路下橋直行至復興南路口即到 (SOGO百貨)

The building should look like this…
To be frank, the building seems really run down so it made me more anxious.. 😦

Every visitor must change into disposable slippers before entering the clinic for hygine purposes. Upon entering the clinic, i was greeted by the very friendly nurses and brought into the waiting area.. The clinic is very clean, modern, nicely decorated and everything put me at ease..

 I did not bring any pictures to show Dr Chen as i want him to decide what the best is for me; as every individuals have different facial features, what looks good on someone might not be the best for me.. During the consulation, Dr Chentold me he will emphasize on natural results so he will decide the crease based on my 黃金定位點 which was obtained from the mid-point of myeyes.

Dr Chen simulated three different level of crease based on my 黃金定位點. I have to hold a mirror in front of my face and was told to close my eyes gently. Next, he placed a metal pin on the mid-point of my eyelid and asked me to open my eyes (without raising my eyebrows). I chose the medium crease as i wanted a more obvious result but not too high that it might appear to be auntish…

The entire consultation lasted about 45 mins and whereby Dr Chen explained the procedures, pros and cons, healing time etc to me. After which, i was brought to the waiting area so that i can make my decision.. Decided to go ahead with the procedure but D was still showing signs of apprehensions. During payment and documentation, the nurse shown him a few before and after pictures and also reassured that everything will be fine… Dr Chen and all his nurses were very patient, professional and knowledgeable so i’ll be in safe hands..

Will continue with the surgery procedures and post surgery experiences in the next few posts..

So stay tune!
Meanwhile, here’s some AFTER photos so enjoy! 🙂
