1 Week After Blepharoplasty
To be safe; however, go see your surgeon and make sure it is nothing to worry about.
Swelling and itching after upper lid surgery
- If the problem is not improving, you must call your surgeon.
- One side always heals faster - but if your right is in more swollen, and the cheek is swollen, it may be an early infection.
- If the eye itself is hurting, it may be dryness, or an abrasion or an allergy or an infection.
- Your surgeon will be able to help you. Call the office now. Best wishes.
Pain after a blepharoplasty
A week after a blepharoplasty you should not have significant discomfort. Some mild itching is normal. Your symptoms require evaluation by a doctor to rule out any significant problems such as corneal abrasion, bleeding around the eye, etc. Do not delay being evaluated by your surgeon.
