Drooping pretarsal lid 4 days post op DST blepharoplasty. Any suggestions? (photos)
Update: This has been resolved. It is indeed swelling, and after one week, my eyes are pretty much symmetrical. It looks great. Thank you for the professional opinions!

Droopy eye after ptosis repair
Thanks for your question and photos. At four days the swelling is not gone. It takes several weeks for eyelid swelling to go away especially if ptosis repair was done with requires more work on the inner parts of your eye. Please be patient with your surgeon. If the droopiness persists the go check with as something within the first week something can be done as maybe one the sutures with your repair broke. The person that is best suited to address your concerns is your surgeon. Good Luck!
All the best,
