I decided that i'm going to post regularly in this forum because there wasn't any information on this kind of surgery on Ethnic or people of color that I could find helpful. So I will document my journey and post when I can. I'm not feeling well enough to do a lot of typing but so far I haven't experienced any significant problems that anyone else hasn't been experiencing. I've been using the saran wrap with a mask at night while sleeping, sleeping in an incline, icing regularly and using Neosporin gel on my bruises. I wanted to address two very significant points that must be discussed with your Doctor if you are a person of color and that is 1) Deep Tissue Scaring and 2) Keloid formation. Melanin is a blessing and a curse but it has to be dealt with properly when any kind of surgery is performed on people of color. I feel that I found an excellent doctor who addressed my concerns significantly. We agreed that wearing the surgical tape until the stitches are removed will provide pressure on the scar preventing the scar tissue underneath to rise over the surface of the scar. He also prescribed a Steroid Pack called MethylPrednisolone to prevent scaring. These steroids has to be taken over 6 days starting on day 2, they seem to make me feel numb but maybe the numbness is supposed to be there (or not). My eyes were not symmetrical to begin with, I have sight Ptosis in my right eye. My personal insurance would not approve the Ptosis surgery because it wasn't droopy enough so I sought out and researched PS in my area to see what could be done. My PS did not want to address the Ptosis as he felt it wasn't bad enough to warrant surgery so he only preformed the eyelid lifts. Maybe they will become even... who knows... to be continued.
