Will Eyelid Retraction Relax Post Surgery?
I had a levator recession done on upper eyelid. It was 4mm asymmetry from other eye with about 1-2 mm scleral show. It was my second surgery, after a mullerectomy where eye became immobilized. So I am extremely happy with the functional results.
Issue is eyelid is about 1 to 1.5 mm higher than other. It fluctuates, but thats the range. I'm 2 months post surgery, and feeling the tightness of scarring occurring. Question is, is there a chance it can relax and lower a bit? Is that possible/likely?
