Puffy lower lids after Blepharoplasty?
More time requoted for healing
some surgeons like me redrape the fat using tiny sutures to keep it in place . This leads to slight inflammation in the fat pad that feels like a tender bump in the lower eyelid. It takes 3-4 months for this to resolve and give you a perfect result. Though it's very difficult to comment in your case without a picture but I have patients who point out the same thing but it heals beautifully once all the swelling settles down!

Swelling after lower eyelid surgery
4 weeks post op
Hi LiftIsSweet,Thanks for your question. In our experience, the majority of swelling resolves by about 2 weeks post-operative. However, we find that the last 10-20% of the swelling can take up to 6 months to resolve. In addition, if you had pre-operative malar edema, than I would expect to you to still have swelling at one month post-op and it will likely persist for up to 6 months. If you are having any increased pain, redness or warmth, I would not hesitate to call you surgeon. Also, some photos would help give us a better idea of what is concerning you. Hope this helps, good luck!
