4 months after ptosis surgery. Will massage help?
Doctor Answers 3
Hi 7VF409,Thanks for your question. A photo would really help us to get a better understanding of your issue. However, I can say that there's usually little to be gained from eyelid massage after a mullerectomy in the first 4 months. In fact, it possible that you could stretch the lid back out and create another ptosis situation. We usually wait 6 months after a mullerectomy to determine if a revision is needed. I would remain patient as most patients become more symmetric as time goes on after this procedure. I wouldnt hesitate to contact your surgeon if you have additional questions. Good luck!
Revision ptosis surgery ?
