Eyelid Surgery: Q&AAsk a Question
One Eye Barely Changed After Blepharoplasty
I had Blepharoplasty done 5 weeks ago, and I immediately noticed post-surgery that the incisions were not the same. However, I didn't worry. Now, one eye looks wonderful and awake, but the other still has overlapping skin and looks tired. What could have happened? Is this result common with the procedure? I'm not sure if I should call my doctor prior to our next appointment (at the 10th week), or just wait and let it heal.
