Lower Eye Bag Removal. Is Vaseline Okay For Scarring Around Eyes?

Scarring after Blepharoplasty
Scarring only two weeks out from blepharoplasty is not abnormal, and so it's hard to say how exactly these areas will look in a few months. But for now, vaseline is an appropriate agent to keep the area moist, as moist skin heals the best. However, make sure you wash the area gently with soap and water first, and apply the vaseline with a clean Q-tip, to avoid infection.
