Hard Lower Lids After Lower Blepharoplasty?
I am 2 weeks post lower blepharoplasty including fat removal and muscle tightening. While the majority of swelling has dissipated, what remains are hard, puffy, and lumpy lower lids as well as local numbness. Is this muscle, cartilage, tissue, or just residual general swelling? I am aware that lower lids take weeks, often months to appear normal, I just want assurance that is not an abnormal problem that needs to be addressed before I see my doctor in 4 weeks.
