Are eyelids supposed to be this red 3 months after upper bleph? (Photo)
Doctor Answers 6
Blepharoplasty - redness persists after 3 months
- Your photo suggests that your redness is from dilated capillaries.
- This can happen -
- It may have existed before and be more noticeable now or reflect changes from surgery.
- These may be temporary or permanent.
- If you return to your plastic surgeon, s/he may be able to explain it and recommend a treatment.
- Generally treatment is avoided for 6 months after surgery, as the capillaries may fade on their own.
Hope you find this information helpful. Best wishes

Thank you for your questions and photos! The colour of your eyelid skin can occur with blepharoplasty although the color may have been present before your surgery. Please review your preoperative photos with the eyelids closed. The color can be treated with laser or intense pulse light with great care.With warmest regards,Trevor M Born MD
