Eyelid Surgery: Q&AAsk a Question
Is Six Months Post Blepharoplasty the Appropriate Time to Address Revisions and Should I Return to Original PS? (photo)
Had upper/lower bleph w/ lower & mid face lift 8 wks ago by respected board certified PS in large city. Eyes are asymmetrical, slight rt lower retraction, left eye over-corrected, much discomfort, though improving with time. Still have quite a bit of side facial swelling causing dent on one cheek & ridges on other. Second opinion w/ oculoplastic surgeon suggested waiting 6 months. He could inject 5FU now, I declined. I am massaging lower lid upward. Could time heal or is revision in my future?
Too early to consider revision
Is Six Months Post Blepharoplasty the Appropriate Time to Address Revisions and Should I Return to Original PS
Six months is appropriate before revision
A pre-op picture would be a great help, but nevertheless:
8 weeks after mid face lift and eyes
Mid face with with associated eyelid surgery will complicates convalescence and increases complications.
