9 Days after Ptosis Surgery
The healing process from surgery can be frustrating. Creating a wound requires healing cells to repair that wound and this often results in swelling as well.
Please give yourself time to heal.
I hope this was helpful.

What to expect from ptosis repair
Hello, From your photos, it appears that your operated eyelid still has some swelling which is normal for 9 days after surgery. It looks like your swelling has been improving steadily since your procedure. Once the swelling has completely resolved, which may take a few weeks, you'll have a better sense of the final result. (Which I predict will be great!) Continue using the lubricating drops and keep in contact with your surgeon. Best of luck.
