Bruising under eyes
Thank you for your question. Yes it is completely normal to have bruising and swelling under the eyes after having an upper lid blepharoplasty. It is caused by the gravity effect. The fluids, bruising and swelling settle under the eyes which takes 2-4 weeks to disappear. You can apply heat after day 10 to help. Good luck

Severe bruising after upper lid blepharoplasty
- Bruising is common after upper lid blepharoplasty and it usually ends up below the eye,
- It usually not as severe as yours,
- If you took aspirin, ibuprofen or any other anti-inflammatory 2 weeks before surgery, it would cause this marked bruising,
- Bruising moves down the face, changing color as it goes,
- It will take 3 weeks to disappear, maybe 4,
- Best wishes.
Is it normal to have severe fluid retention and dark purple bruises under my eyes after upper eyelid surgery?
Though not the norm this could happen. Allow 10 days of healing than become concerned if not fully healed by than....
Yes, this is typical bruising with eyelid surgery.
It is completely normal to have bruising and swelling in the lower eyelid and even the face after upper eyelid surgery. We instruct our patients to avoid medications and herbal over the counter products that interfere with platelet function for 3 weeks prior to surgery to help minimize this type of bruising. Yes, the timing you are describing is pretty typical. If you are having pain, vision loss, or an expanding bruise, these symptoms should be brought to the attention of your surgeon immediately.
