Open Wounds on Eye Corners After Blepharoplasty
I had blepharoplasty four days ago. My doctor decided to take the stitches out two days after the surgery. It was a bit aggressive, as some skin had grown over the sutures, and thus painful. Before I left, he put thin pieces of steri-strips on the outer corners of my eyes, with a bit of ointment. This part of both eye incisions feels as though it has not closed, or perhaps was opened by my heavy-handed doctor. When I (carefully) peeked under the steri-strip, it indeed appears to be an open wound. Is this easily corrected? Am I in danger of bad scarring? I won't get to see him for another three days.
