I had a lower lid bleph with fat transfer 7 days ago and have a ridge of puffiness around orbital rim that makes me looked deformed - is this normal?
I had very bad bruising and swelling - still a huge black/purple bruise under one eye. I can't find pictures of the healing process of a bleph and wasn't expecting this hard ridge of "fat" around my eyes. I don't have full high cheeks so this really makes me look deformed. Is this a normal part of the healing process and will they relax and look normal? Where can I find pictures of post surgery at 1 week, 2 weeks, 1 month etc to see how this should progress?

After fat transfer give it 2-3 weeks for the edema to go down and the fat to soften up. Relax for now, it sounds normal for only one week out.

Kind regards,
