Swelling/Bruising five weeks after surgery
Bruising has a tendency to "sit " where the soft eyelid skin changes to the firmer cheek skin. Think of it like the bruising is sitting on a "shelf".
In any case it is always the Best to call your Surgeons office with any concerns and questions.

Swelling after lower eyelids
In patients undergoing a simple transconjunctival blepharoplasty, one should expect only minimal if any swelling after 5 weeks. Ask your doctor if you has a more advanced procedure, like fat transposition. In this case, you still could have some residual postoperative swelling. Your doctor should be willing to see you at any time to answer your questions and concerns
