White Raised Eyelash Line 9 Months After Upper Blepharoplasty

I had an upper bleph 9 months ago for ptosis repair. I am happy with the slight asymetry etc...I look better than I was. I have a thin white raised line along upper lashes that just will not quit being swollen and sore.It looks like it is a collection of white heads actually..all in a fine line along eyelashes. Do you know what it is and what I can do to treat it? I dislike my surgeon and do not wish to visit him again.

This sounds like it could be milia, or blocked galnds along the eyelash margin and you should go to an Opthalmologist for evaluation and treatment.

You may be seeing a line of the little glands that lubricate your eyelids. I suggest you consult an eye specialist , such as an ophthalmologist or oculoplastic surgeon.

So sorry to hear that you are not happy with your surgeon.

Without a personal consultation or at least photos, it is hard to know what is going on.  It is possible that with the ptosis surgery, the lid margin was rotated in a subtle way that causes you to see a structure that was always there is a different way.  I would recommend seeking one or more consultations with fellowship trained eyelid plastic surgeons.  The American Society for Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (ASOPRS) maintains a geographic directory at their website: ASOPRS.org.  This will help you find a well qualified surgeon in your area to see regarding this issue.
