The Healing Time Seemed an Eternity - Colorado, CO

- 3 Apr 2013
I had a face/neck lift and upper and lower bleph on Jan 21, 2013. I had severe swelling both eyes and face. I am about two and a half months post op and still have some swelling, but mostly tightness and pulling. Also pin-prick sensations when I touch my face or smile. My ps says it is healing normally, but it seems like the time is excessive. I would not have been able to go out and work until approx 2 months. My eyes still look squinty and swollen and when I read too much they get sore and dry. Anyone else experience this delayed healing? I had to have two revisions on my outer lower lids because of skin splitting toward my cheeks. I still have scarring from that. I had a oculoplast do the blephs and I thought that would avoid problems, but guess complications do occur. I probably would not have done this if I had known how much time and discomfort was involved.
