58 y/o male, upper and lower bleph, bi canthoplasty....still slightly swollen with edema in left eye causing some uneveness in healing, slight droop in eyelid.
slight bumps at end of eye caused by internal stiches from canthoplasty.

So, my questions are:
heat compress or ice?
how do i help internal stitches from dissolving?
what is best to elinimate edema?
what are some of the things that you did to help overall healing.

I am at the stage, for past 3 weeks, that i am mentally beaten down and i need to pick myself up and try new products and/or improve my outlook/attitude.


Help please :-)

Can anyone recommend a person to do very Light...

I had upper and lowers down four weeks ago and my lower right eye is bumpy and scar looms terrible compared to the left. I'm going back to the doctor in two days. I'm nervous

Remember eah eye is its own surgery and will heal at different rates. Are you using scar gel?

Hi shar18. I had my upper eyelids done 7wks. ago & still have incisions that are healing. I also had bump in my left eye on outer corner, but it has laid down now. Give it more time. Would love to see your pictures.

I'll see if I can get someone to take pictures. Thanks for the encouraging words. The upper eyelids seem to be doing a lot better than the lower ones. I'm going to write down all the questions so I'm prepared when I see my doctor tomorrow

hi mbs, I applied it sparingly on the stitch/scar line and would lightly pat it with dampened cloth so it didn't seep into eyes. although safe, I didn't want swollen eyes in the morning.

How are your eyes now? Mine are really getting better, still swollen more on the left, but I think I'm just getting used to seeing my upper lids again! When your used to looking at yourself one way, it's different when it looks different. I don't ice, my doctor said it really doesn't do any good after the 3rd day. I do use antibiotic cream at night w/eye drops. I still have alot of healing to do though. Hang in there, let us know how you feel.

Glad you are doing better. I am too. Not perfect, far from it, but i am becoming happier with results. Still have some bumps on outer portion of eyes where stitches from bi-canth are located, but they are slowly disolving. What type of antibiotic cream do you use, where do you apply it and is it prescription? I use FML ointment on outside under and over lashes.

It's otc neosporin, I apply it to the incision pattern on the upper lid.
