Keloid Damage After Upper/lower Bleph

I had upper/lower blep 07/13 and devloped a keloid in lower inner left eye. K-pak treatment (9 days later), resolved keloid but inner eyelid still tucked in towards eyeball and rubbing. Lower lid is pulled down revealing more of the eyeball. Looks like I have a glass eye. My surgeon said it's normal?

My eyeball feels very exposed. I realize it may be too soon to tell if my lower lid will bring itself back up, but I'm very worried. Is this correctable if it doesn't fix itself?

My doctor didn't remove my stiches his practitioner and when I mentioned the uncomfortable feeling and look of the left eye turning inward, he blew me off. I had to call a two days later to have my surgeon look at it and address the keloid. If you do the surgery you should be the one to remove the stitches and check out you work and look for any complications.

It's improved, however the incision never smoothed out completely. So it's visible, but not obvious or hideous or bizarre looking. The physician did give my eyelid injections a few times to relax the incision. It didn't hurt although the needle was injected inside my lower lid. I seemed to help a little. So it's a trade off, I don't have hooded upper lids and puffy under eyes anymore. The incision that didn't heal correctly was the only long lasting drawback. Catch it early if you get keloids, so it doesn't interfere with the healing process.

Would like to know how your eyes are now looking and if you feel better about your decision to have this done. I have been contemplating this surgery, but have keloids from other non-cosmetic surgery and am very nervous about doing this but so need it.

Hello. Read your review and first let me say I'm sorry you are experiencing this pain and emotional concern. You need to post this as a question to the Doctors. I'm not one, but had a bad upper and lower eye lid surgery many years ago, now seeking some reversions and have posed many questions to the doctors regarding my issues. One of the surgeons mentioned I may have Scleral Show, which is when the whites of your eyes are exposed and should not be. This is due to many things, basically too much fat being removed or tissue cut away. In your case it maybe due to pulling of lid from the Keloid. In any case it could have interfered with the healing process or altered tissue. Since the procedure was done 7/13/09 you may have had enough time to heal and problem now resolved. If not, I would continue to address your doctor, but asking the doctors on this web sight has been beneficial for me. Pictures( Before and After) definitely help in there suggestions, although difficult to sometimes tell from pic's, as opposed to in-person consultation. Hope this helps, and hope things are better.Either way, good luck.
