Healing Process Of Eyelid Surgery
Thank you for posting your photograph.
It seems like you are doing well with the recovery process.
The photo shows nothing but normal swelling from your surgery. Remember that you are only at a week post-surgery.
Recovery takes time and so a little more of patience is required at this time.
Patients with eyelid surgeries could take up to 8 months for the full results to be established.
I encourage you to keep your surgeon in the loop of your recovery process.
Best of luck to you and thank you for your inquiry.
Lower blepharoplasty swelling day 8. Normal?
Thank you for the photos. It looks like normal swelling for this point in the post operative course. The body will take its time healing wounds. They need to go through a maturation phase. Please let your surgeon know your concerns.

It sounds like scarring, which is normal after surgery. Massage will improve and soften it over time. Discuss this with your surgeon before trying it. Let him/her guide your postoperative care.
