Massage or Surgery for Raised Swelling After Blepharoplasty?
I had a lower Blepharoplasty peformed and within two days, a raised sausage-shape swelling appeared under the stiches. After stitches were removed, the swelling remained for 6 weeks on. I've been massaging the area it still doesn't go away. The appearance of my other eye is fine and so are the scars. Should I just keep on massaging or will I have to have another surgery to correct it. The stitch is also visible and there was a large tuck at the corner of my eye--this now looks a little better.
Will likely resolve with massage, otherwise a small revision
