I had a lower bleph two months ago. I still have swelling, just lower than the original bags. I also have dark circles, again, not under my eyelids but closer to the tops of my cheeks. Heat compresses help some but I am not happy. My surgeon was surprised too at 4 weeks and asked if I had allergies. I am now taking allergy meds but see no difference. My eyes also feel somewhat tight. Will this improve?

We Cosmetic Surgeons could suggest many different ideas to help you: But TIME, massage, cool compresses, allergy control, future fillers and possibly lower eyelid tightening surgery may be beneficial.

Slow Healing from Lower Blepharoplasty?
Thanks for the posted photo. Yes gentle massage is slowly helpful. In my opinion a lateral canthopexy is needed with a filler in the tear trough.
This may be tender fat obstruction which should subside within 6 months. Gentle massage to the area should help the swelling.
