It is common to still have swelling at 4 weeks post op. It is also not uncommon to have one eye more swollen than the other. Try sleeping on your back with your head elevated to help reduce swelling. Sometimes sleeping to one side more than the other will cause increased swelling to that side. Also make sure you are continuing to see your surgeon for regular follow up appointments.
