Non-existent Crease Years After Blepharoplasty
I had a blepharoplasty performed on my right eye about four years ago. I noticed after the swelling had gone down, the lid seemed to double crease resulting in my right eye looking a bit wider than my left, but at least with a crease so it didn't bother me much. But, in the past couple of weeks I've noticed that this has ceased and that the lid simply folds over resulting in no visible crease, just a fat pad over my eye. Is this normal four years after surgery? Can it be remedied?
