The hardest part has been the healing. I am glad I did it as long as I now that my eyes will even out at some point in the near future! Lol!

I did this after years of watching my upper eyelids get heavier and heavier. This is hereditary and I wanted to avoid the dramatic overhang that my dad and grandmother had in old age.

I had asian blepheroplasty incisional surgery 3 weeks ago. I have heard that asian eyes tend to swell more and can take longer to heal. My skin is thick and I did have fat removed from the lids. Notice that in my photo, my eyelids are uneven. I do understand that this does happen and is "normal" and it takes months to heal. I'm ok with the swelling but my concern is a flipped up eyelid on my left eye. (I wasn't expecting this.) It was this way immediately after surgery but it has not gone down very much at all. I am trying to be patient but I am concerned and wonder if I should be. From a professional point of view, can anyone shed some light on this flipped up eyelid. Is this normal and have you seen this before?
