Choose Upper Blehparoplasty after seeing a photo that showed my upper eyelids droop and aging me by ten years or more! After consult with the doctor I was well informed and confident of the procedure. It only took a little over an hour for the surgery with little to no pain or discomfort involved. It was done with a lazer rather than scapel.
There was no pain afterwards and I was given analgestic and antibiotics and an antibiotic ointment, and arnica cream for the bruising for aftercare. There was swelling and bruising for the next week or two. I used cold compresses for the first two weeks and healing was going along beautifully. Unti, at 3 weeks, l I got an allergic reaction to the paw paw ointment that I was told to use, then I changed to Petroleum jelly and then Bepanthen Cream and the inflammation swelled and reddened my wounds and eyelids again :( After consulting this website and my surgeon via email I used an ophlamic steroid cream Dermaid Soft 1% cream made by Ego which quickly made the inflammation subside and reduced most of the swelling.
So back to normal healing now at 3weeks and 6 days using the Dermaid Soft 1% Cream and Almond Oil and warm compresses now. And I might say a great result so far but I am still a little swollen and eyes are slightly distorted, but it's early days yet. Trying to be patient! :) I know it'll be a while yet before the healing is completed. BTW I changed my hair color at the same time as I had the surgery and everyone thinks that from going from Auburn to blonde has made me look 10 years younger ;) No one has noticed that I had the surgery, Food for thought?
Am now at week 9 and healing is progressing well....

I had problems with the aftercare products due to allergies of my own including paw paw ointment (that I was told to use for aftercare), vaseline (petroleum jelly). I had to use a mild steroid cream to alleviate this. This was just after my first post. Be very careful with creams and ointments on the eyelid area, test them out first and get professional advice.
Just checking in to give an update. It's approx 14...
