This is what 58-year-old Terry looked like before her anti-aging procedure (left), and this is what she looked like six months later (right). Like Reggie, Terry had fat injected in the hollows of her eyes except Reggie got Restylane, which lasts up to a year, and Terry got fat, which is permanent.
How does Terry feel about her new look? "I'm absolutely ecstatic about it," Terry says. "I feel like I've had a big rest. I think I look younger."
Oprah: So now you can take out what we used to call "bags," that's what we're calling these fat pockets?
Dr. Airan: Actually what you're doing is re-contouring around the lid. One way that we describe it to patients is when you're young the way that the fat is held in [around] the eye is like a sling, like a hammock. And then as you age, the hammock loosens up and the fat can pouch out. In the old thinking, they would remove fat. But now you can use Restylane or fat to reshape, re-contour the lower eyelid area and that makes people look better, more well-rested.
Do you look a lot older than you are? Are you brave enough to find out? In a dramatic experiment on TLC's 10 Years Younger, women agreed to step inside a soundproof "age guessing" box in the heart of Santa Monica, California, and once inside, total strangers guessed her age!
A self-described hippy, Kim wondered if she looked as old as she felt. The average age 100 strangers guessed her to be: 51. Kim is really 43.
After a face peel, Lysik eye surgery, a hair cut, a new wardrobe, age-defying makeup tips and trapeze lessons, Kim says she feels 20 years younger!
One hundred onlookers guessed that 40-year-old, stay-at-home-mom Kathy was 50 years old. "I grayed so early I was so used to being gray," Kathy says. "My mother always said to me 'As long as your gray is white, then you're okay.'"
To help Kathy turn back the clock, she heads to the dentist's office where her yellow stained teeth are whitened and bonded. Next, it's off to the dermatologist's for salicylic acid chemical peel and a homework assignment: an at home skin bleaching kit to help get rid of her brown spots. After haircut and color, some helpful anti-aging makeup and some waxing, her "grandma grays" are long gone! "I feel it inside," Kathy says. "It just feels so much better."
