Prior to blepharoplasty/fat transfer surgery, I was told my down time would be about 3-4 days for the bruising and a couple more days for the swelling. 3 weeks later, I am still bruised, swollen and have an unsightly lump under my right eye. I feel the surgeon was not honest in the severity and complications of the procedure, and now I have lost confidence in him & don't know if I should be massaging this lump as instructed. Please advise if possible.I had lower eyelid surgery 3 weeks ago with fat transfer/grafting. I have a lump the size of a pea/small bean under my right eye that my plastic surgeon referred to as fat relocation. I was told to massage the area, & it would resolve with time. Does this make sense or should I seek another opinion?
Minimized the down time and the outcome so far is most unsatisfactory. I have lost confidence now in following his recommendations.
