Left with "Floppy" Eyelids! Doctors & Patients Alike Please Help! - Los Angeles, CA

First, right after my eyelide surgery, I noticed...

First, right after my eyelide surgery, I noticed that the stitches were unever & that there were gaps where the skin seamed to 'gap' open. I just figured that the PS new what he was doing. Then I noticed that the incision 'crease' lines were not even! Now that it is 9 days post surgery, stiches out -- my eyes look horrible. I seem to have hanging eye lids above my incision line! Please let me know if this is normal. ( I do not think so because I have been looking at many other post surgery photos & not of them look like mine. PLEASE, DOCTORS, PATIENTS please give me your honest opinion & adivise. I can take it as long as I can get this fixed! And how long until I can get a revision?

Just wondering how it all turned out? It took me 3 months for most of my issues to resolve themselves (dry eye, droop, swelling, etc). I hope yours got better!

Hello and welcome to RealSelf. It's possible your eyelids are still swollen and will settle down over the coming weeks. How are you doing now?
