Can't Completely Close Eyes After Blepharoplasty?
I had a Blepharoplasty done 4 weeks ago and one of my eye scar seems to be holding it slightly opened when I blink and sleep. I had steroid injections on the scars a few days ago. I have excess skin that folds over the scar even when my eyelid is closed.
My lower lid on the same eye has a dimple from the scar and it seems it is keeping it from lifting properly. What is causing this to happen and will it ever be able to close?
