i had fat graft 4 months ago in lower eye lid for retracted lower eyelid . i had prevoius 3 surgeries i still have upper eyelid swelling , its still persistant
Eyelid swelling can take up to a year to improve
Persistent upper eyelid swelling after a lower eyelid procedure is unusual, but at this point I would wait for up to a year. I have seen swelling improve over that time period.
Persistent swelling after multiple eyelid procedure is not unusual. Becuase of scarring from previous surgery, a longer recovery is not unexpected. All the best.
