Ptosis repair, but eye still stiff at 5 weeks, what to do?
Hi Crowly,Thanks for your question and photos. It certainly is hard to assess what your situation is without an exam. You will need time to heal and at 5 weeks it is too soon to tell. Since this was your third surgery, you have more scar tissue than most people. I would recommend massage but I am not sure what your surgeon did and it may hurt your results. Discuss your concerns with your surgeon and see if they can evaluate you with video conferencing and see if they know someone that can follow you in California. Good Luck!
All the best,
