I had upper and lower eyelid surgery due to droopy eyelids. It was a disaster! I had such a severe hematoma and the bruising covered my whole face, breasts and stomach. The Dr. Kept saying it would go away. My eyes were swollen shut for several days. Some bruising did subside but 3 months later bruising remained. After a total break-down in the Dr.s office she finally recommended a plastic surgeon who did 5 reconstructive surgeries. He was very sympathetic and did all he could to help. There is definite improvement but my eyelids are not even and look patched from skin grafts.
My advice is ---- never let an opthomologist do this surgery regardless of experience. I did my part by having all my Dr.s approval and bloodwork. I realize too late she had no experience in lower lids.
