I had congenital ptosis(2mm)on 6th October 2010 I had ptosis repair,after surgery doctor told me that he had resected the levator muscle to 20mm. Now after 3 months my upper eyelid is still swelling and ptosis gone, my left eye now has eyelid swelling that was not present before, Is it normal ?

6-8 weeks is average, but sometimes swelling can last longer. Are you taking any steps to minimize swelling, such as cold compresses or bromelain supplements?
