Small blood clot after transconjunctival bleph?

Hello all, I just has transconj bleph, and to it went quite well, I barely feel any pain and eye are functioning perfectly normal. However, I noticed what seems like a small blood clot, right in the middle of where my left eye bag was. It basically looks almost exactly like a mole. Of course it wasn't there before. I called the doc and they said it is fine, probably the location of the anesthetic injection, a bit of bleeding will be absorbed later. Is this true? Do I have anything to worry about?

Bruises do happen and yes they go away.  One side almost always lags behind the other so it is helpful to be patient.  If you want a more concrete answer, consider posting actual photographs.

Hi Bubbagump.  It is hard to give advice without seeing a picture. Bruising is common after blepharoplasty, and from what you describe, I don't think you have anything to worry about.  If you are concerned, I suggest you see your plastic surgeon.
