Eyelid Surgery: Q&AAsk a Question
Lower Blepharoplasty Revision
A month after Blepharoplasty, my left lower lid looks worse compared to how it looked like before surgery. Now only is it puffy, it now seems to also have an indentation under the puffy area. I am wondering why this happened. I am very discouraged and disappointed with the results as my doctor said that it would not change--and it hasn't. He said there's nothing I could do. I feel I will need revisional surgery of the lower lid, and I'm wondering how long after this first procedure should I wait before I can undergo revision surgery? The doctor who performed the surgery is an oculoplastic surgeon, and I'm wondering if O should find a regular plastic surgeon who is more concerned with aesthetics for this revision.
