13 weeks post op upper lower bleph. Are healing complete?
Had upper/lower bleph 13 weeks ago. I'm satisfied with upper lids however there is slight puffyness under eye which never goes away. This was the point of undergoing lower bleph in the first place. The puffyness seems to be just displaced from the original area. My doctor says total healing can take 4-6 months. But I'm almost at 4 months now and puffyness has never diminished....Can I assume these are the final results of the surgery? There is still a pinching and tenderness around the eye and the area where the stitches were is still numb so I'm hoping that healing is not complete.

Although you probably are not complete healed, I don't think the appearance will change much. The pinching effect will go away. You should discuss with your surgeon or consult an oculoplastic surgeon.
