Swelling After Ptosis OK

Swelling after ptosis surgery is quite normal and can lead to feelings of tightness. If the swelling is severe or getting worse or if you have redness, pain, or the skin around the eyes feels hot this could be a sign of infection and you should see your surgeon right away.
