Eyelid Surgery - Chico, CA

Procedure itself was painless. I chose this procedure to combat very baggy skin on upper eyelids. It is still too early to tell if I will be happy with the results.

I went back to Dr. one week after surgery (surgery was week and a half ago) to have stitches removed. He was unable to remove stitches because my skin had healed over. He then cut the ends and told me it would be fine if the stitches stayed in, that the material was compatable with my body. I am nervous about how well I am healing, lids are still puffy and numb to the touch. I am concerned that scar tissue will form around the stitches. Should I insist that the doctor remove the stitches?


It has been a year and I am happy with the results...

It has been a year and I am happy with the results and no residual problems with the stitches. My eyes look much better and I have no regrets about having the procedure. The healing process was pretty quick and painless.
