Swelling After Lower Blepharoplasty
I recently had a bilateral lower blepharoplasty done 4 1/2 weeks ago. Swelling had resolved after a week or so, but over the past few days both, lids are getting puffy again. How long does swelling take to completely reslove? Do I need to go back to my surgeon as early as possible?
Swelling will come and go
Yes, it is imperative that you return back to your surgeon for a follow up reevaluation!!
