I had alot of loose upper eyelid skin so I had surgery about 4 months ago. My eyes were black and blue and very swollen.
About 3 weeks later I started seeing the bruising go away much less swelling but still some swelling left. It has been 4 months now and my eyes look better but I still have to go back for a touch up on one eye. The inner part seems to have a small bumpy soft area. I did go back a second time and the doctor had to cut more towards the inner eye, it seems he just stopped half way. I hated to go back again but he said he would rather be conservative and do touch ups if needed.
Like I said I have to go a 3rd time, my dermotolist said I should'nt cut anymore. I have to ask her why? My biggest problem is dark pigment on both sides of the incisions. I need to know how to lighten it. Scar aids dry my lids out too much.
Overall I am happy I did it. no real horror story.

not sure if I would recommend. I had to go back twice for touch ups, all seems ok but I dont want to recommend the doctor to others, they may not tolerate it.
