Lower eye lid palate graft - what to expect
- It sounds as though you may be having reconstructive facial surgery to correct previous surgery.
- The best person to advise you will be your own surgeon.
- Your mouth will be sore and will take several weeks to heal - and your tongue will be aware of the irregularity.
- Ask your surgeon if Porex will be used - I would not use it.
