Is my blepharoplasty incision healing normally? (Photo)

It should get better
In the context of having had inflammation, allergic reactions, etc the incision often look red and bumpy for 2 to 8 weeks. Give it time and don't use scar gel or vitamin E as this might irritate things. Give it time and check in with your surgeon. Occasionally steroid injections plus 5-FU can be helpful if needed.

at two weeks postop your incisions may feel lumpy and bumpy. You can use vitamin e oil or a scar gel to reduce redness. It is also important to stay out if they sun. If your symptoms persist, check in with your surgeon.
