I had my lower bleph done a month ago and I have indentation where eye sockets meet the cheecks. Worried.

I have these noticeable indentation where my eyes meet my cheeks and dark circles. I look like a raccooon. Also my eyes seem still swollen and there is a slight assymetry as well. Went to see a doctor who prescribed me steroids to help with swelling which seemed to help a little.  I am worried this may be permanent. The doctor assured me that my eyes will improve and I need to give more time. Anyone had experience with indentations that corrected themselves? How long did that take?

Same problem here. Don't go for fillers on cheeks as well. I did and it worsens the socket hollow !!! Another doctor gave me false hope when he filled the area with hyauloric Juvederm. The covered hollow last only a week and the socket remains hollow. I look goggled as the skin becomes stretched white rim around this socket ! So very sad now. Look as old as before and $4k poorer with traumatic feeling of knowing people see the irregularities and somewhat unnaturalness of my face now. Sigh !

I am 3 months out and my eyes do look different but you have to point it out, I look much better and I see changes every week. The Dr said I would see changes in a year. The tops are perfect but the bottom as healing. He said he might have to do a pinch on the one eye. I trust my Dr and will wait for more healing. Everyone says I look amazing. Be patient but expect what you really wabted to be done but it does take time especially on the bottom

Thanks for your reassurance. yes me too. it has been six weeks now and my eyes made tremendous improvements last week. So, I am optimistic now.

I did not have that complication but would recommend that you post your question about the complication under the "ask a doctor" tab. Include pictures that clearly represent the problem. I posted my question and their answers have been very helpful in seeking out the help I need with my unusual upper eyelid complication.
