Asymmetrical Swelling After Lower Eyelid Fat Grafting
I'm only 9 days post op.. i had a lower eyelid fat grafting to fill in hollow lower eyes. My left eye has healed perfectly.. there is a hint of a minor bruise left but the result is smooth and looks great. My right eye, is red, and blotchy, and a bit lumpy, and looks odd. Its freaking me out since the left has healed so nicely and the right one is so off.. Will the blotchiness tighten up as the weeks go on? Is this most likely initial swelling? Or is this the fat that is healing uneven?
