Big Eyelids 6 Weeks After Revision Ptosis Surgery. My eyelid droop a month after, is this normal? (photos)

A revision is not uncommon. With a revision can come more swelling than normal. Healing can take up to 6 weeks or more with swelling decreasing over that time. Follow your instructions, sleep with your head elevated, and avoid strenuous activity.

I will try to give you some answers, but seeing the eyelid function would help. Levator resection will shorten up and tighten the levator tissue to better hold up the eyelid margin. It is a straightforward technique that may provide an easier solution to the problem. If it is unsuccessful try to get a second opinion from an occuloplastic surgeon. I hope this helps.
