Do Eyelids Tighten Up As They Heal After Blepharoplasty?
I'm 4 weeks post-op after upper and lower blepharoplasty. Once the initial swelling went down, gaps developed between my lower lids and eyeballs. Doctor said it was chemosis and would resolve on its own over time. It's improved, but I still have gaps if I turn my head to the side or lower my head while looking straight ahead. There's no drooping and I LOOK fine, but the lower lids feel "loose" and soap gets in my eyes in the shower. Will they eventually tighten up? Would a transconjunctival approach have avoided this? (my snap test was perfect)
