As previously stated, this is a subconjunctival hemorrhage and may occur after blepharoplasty. It looks bad but resolve without sequelae. It will take a few weeks and there is really nothing to do but let nature take its course.
Subconunctival hemorrhage after blepharoplasty
Hi. As stated by other physicians, you appear to have a subconjunctival hemorrhage (basically a bruise underneath the clear lining of the eye). The blood will typically resorb over a few days to a few weeks. It generally does not affect the outcome of surgery. Hope this helps, Best regards, Ira Vidor, M.D.
Bruising in that area looks red because the blood that has spilled is still being oxygenated through the thin layer of conjunctiva over it. I will go away, like any bruise, with time.
This is what a bruised conjunctiva or white of the eye looks like.
This is a subconjunctival hemorrhage and it is very common after eyelid surgery. This gets better on its own without intervention. Generally it is associated with swelling and can lead to chemosis, a technical name for conjunctival swelling. The use of artificial tears and ointment keeps this from drying out and speeds resolution. Ask your surgeon if this would be right for you.
This can occur after any eyelid surgery. Some blood tracks up under the conjunctiva. Looks bad but will not affect your result. Nothing to make it go away - will take 10-14 days ususlly
Conjunctival hemorrhage following lower blepharoplasty
Thank you for sharing your question and photo. It is not a problem to get a conjunctival hemorrhage following blepharoplasty. It will mostly clear up in 2 weeks with no issues. Although these type of hemorrhages are alarming to see, they cause no negative effects. I hope you find this helpful.
Blood in eye after lower blepharoplasty
I would agree with your surgeon that it is possible to get blood in the eye after a lower blepharoplasty, but this does not occur with most people. It should resolve by itself over time and I would say it is usually gone before a month. There should be no problems with your eye, other than the red color, which should go away completely.
Concerned about blepharoplasty
Thank you for your picture. This is a normal occurrence after a transconjunctival blepharoplasty for a subcillary approach to perform a blepharoplasty. This is call a subconjunctival hemorrhage which equates to a bruise that is lighter due it's excellent oxygenation. Unlike a typical bruise that is darker purple due to its slightly reduced oxygenation. The long and short of it is, this will improve over the next several weeks. Good luck.
