Lower eyelid blepharoplasty surgrey
I had a lower eyelid blepharoplasty 81 days ago my eyes are still puffy and I also have pain in the corner of my eye where I was cut. My left eye have a small pin ball under the skin also when I touch it I have pain and each eye look different in healing.
Is all this ommon and the swollen lower eyelids?
I am a 55 years healthy women . I was told i would be back to normal in 30 days and I see that is not true.

I did everything ice packs , sleeping with head elevated , some warm heat also I was told later after the healing process would help the pain . Please tell me something again is all of this normal in this time frame. I was reading online some women are still having swelling after 5 months. Just tell me when will all of this will go away.


Very concern patient.

See if your surgeon can explain the situation and get a second opinion. It won't hurt.
Good luck from NYC
