Why Do I Wake Up with a Swollen Spot on the Malar Bone After Blepharopasty and Mid-face Lift?
Today is the one month anniversary of my upper and lower blepharoplasty and mid-face surgery. Healing is proceeding as expected. However, my concern right now is this extra swollen spot on my left cheek bone that appears on my face overnight. I'm still sleeping on a recliner with my head elevated. I try to sleep on my back but tend to roll over on my side in the middle of the night. In the morning, I apply ice to this area and the swelling goes down. Is this normal? What causes it?
