Incision on lower eyelid not healing quickly (Photo)

Incision needs more time to heal
One of the great challenges after eyelid surgery is being patient for everything to heal fully. Complete healing from blepharoplasty can take a minimum of 6 months to one year -- you are only 6 weeks after your procedure. You might consider discussing with your surgeon the use of something like vitamin E oil or a commercially available scar gel to gently massage that incision line. After 1 year, if the scar is still unacceptable a revision might be considered -- but you must wait longer before considering that choice. Best of luck in your recovery and please discuss with your surgeon!
