9 days post blepharoplasty and mild ptosis repair: Eyelid appears very overcorrected (Photo)
Doctor Answers 1
If at 1-2 weeks my postop ptosis repair patients are either very undercorrected or especially overcorrected, I prefer to take them back to the procedure room or OR as soon as possible where the wound comes apart very easily with minimal bleeding and the problem can easily be rectified. The incision can be closed with only a few sutures. The incision heals very quickly and there is very little time lost for recovery.
you should be seeing your surgeon soon and can address these concerns in more detail.
