Swelling 5 Weeks After Blepharoplasty
Different individuals will have different rates of resolution of edema. Anxiety about this is completely normal, but complete resolution is the norm. Some patients with thyroid conditions can take longer. Staying in close contact with your operating Surgeon for advice and reassurance is the best advice I can offer.
Swelling will resolve at very different rates for everyone, and sometimes even from one eye to the other. I have my patients use warm compresses. Also have them take an anti-inflammatory such as ibuprofen. With time the edema will always resolve!
The only answer here is patience. People heal at different rates and unfortunately your eyelids are healing a little slower. The only solution is waiting it out and letting it go back to normal. 99.9% of the time it does. You just need to give it time.
