Loose cornea?

Two weeks post blepharoplasty and you have a "loose cornea?"  I amnot sure what you mean, but if it is swelling of the conjunctiva then that is most likely chemosis.This is fairly common and is often treated with topical steroids.  You should follow closely with your doctor.

Swelling after blepharoplasty

It sounds as if you have a swelling of the conjunctiva, which is not unusual. This looks like jelly. If that's the case, then this condition is known as chemosis. This will go away with time, but often your surgeon will prescribe steroid drops to hasten the resolution

it is not clear what you mean by a "loose cornea"

you will have changes in your eyelids themselves for several weeks or even months  with improvement as the swelling goes down.
