Asian Eyelid Surgery: Q&AAsk a Question
After asian DE surgery, right eyelid feels weak to open? Do i have slight ptosis in my right eye? i feel a hard lump under the skin in the inner corner, possibly scar tissue (will it go away and what do i need to do)? also my right eye feels sleepy/tired. does this mean the muscle could have been damaged from the surgery? the surgeon said it feels tired because it means that eye has weak muscles? will it improve and can i fix it surgically? i'm 1 month post op. the eyelid droopiness is making me feel tired.
