I had surgery on my uppers and lowers Friday, May 31st. I'm going in to get my stiches removed tomorrow. My upper lids are still very swollen between the incision and my lash line. I'm worried at this point that when I have to return to work in another week that it will be very obvious that I've had something done. I have not told many people, none of my co-workers, and at this point I would be horrified if anyone saw me in my current state. I am following all of the guidelines my Dr. has given me, but in looking at pictures of others in their recovery process, I seem to be much more swollen in comparison. Will removing the stiches help reduce the swelling?
