Hello to all out there.  I am in San Diego and had Lower Bleph on 2/20/14. So I am 3 weeks out as I write this...I still have some slight bruising and swelling but what is worrying me is I have some bulging bumps that are kinda hard. They do seem to be getting smaller every couple days or so...Just wondering if this is normal for 3 weeks post op..??  I also have on the outside corner of my eyes where the incision was is a little bump. It does hurt a little when I press on it and was also told this is common after this procedure but it doesn't seem to be going away at all.  I had this surgery to get rid of bags and bumps not to get new ones.  LOL  Anyone out there experience anything similar???

I had that little bump on the lower eyelid outside also. It was painful at first. Now - at six weeks out, it has almost completely disappeared. I have now realized the recovery is much longer than I thought.

Did your surgeon perform a canthopexy or canthoplasty? It could be the permanant suture.

Sounds very normal to me.  Did you have stitches?  That is usually why you have bumps, even if they are the dissolving kind.  It really does take about 6 months before you see your real results.  It took me almost 8 months.  Hang in there!

thank you! I was expecting to look fabulous after 6 weeks....now I realize that is unrealistic.

It is a rough few months because you feel like you are totally healed, but the swelling and dry eyes and what not linger for a while.
