Eyelid Surgery: Q&AAsk a Question
How Long Will It Take for Swelling to Go and Eyelid to Close?
I had upper eyelid surgery 9 days ago. There is barely any bruising but there is a lot of swelling in the area between the eyelashes and the crease area. One eye, which also doesn't shut completely (there is a tiny area in the corner near the nose which remains slightly open)is a lot more swollen than the other eye, which shuts normally. The eye that shuts feels and appears nearly normal, the other eye looks and feels a lot more tight and swollen. Will this resolve or do I have a major problem?
