I had both upper and lower lids done 4 wks ago, including fat extraction and a 'deep stitch' on the corner of each eye to tighten the pouches. Surgeon says I have very 'reactive' skin (I'm a redhead, late 50's). The stitches on the corner of lower lids appear raised and red, and I am also concerned about the lower eyelid redness and puffiness of left eye. The stitches on the top lids are healing nicely, but entire upper lids are RED... The doc says time will heal all of this inflammation...
Upper Lids Still Red, Inflamed After 4 Wks, Left Lower Lid Slightly Puffy. What to Do?
