Did my Eye Lift 7 Months Ago Cause This? (photo)

I had an upper and lower eye lift seven months ago. Last month a noticed a small hard bump. Now it is larger and turning red. Could this be related to the eye lift?

Blepharoplasty and postoperative "lump"


It may or may not be related to something that was done during the initial surgery you had done. The best advice I have is to contact your surgeon and go in for a postoperative follow-up.

If your doctor used any deep sutures, theoretically its possible that there is a reaction/infection,  though you may develop this type of infection even if you didn't have surgery.

Whether its related or not, is of no consequence at this time: you should see your surgeon immediately, as you may need antibiotics
