I would suggest you go back to your doctor for advice on massage after eyelid surgery.  Personally I have my upper bleph patients massage the outer corner of the incision where it crosses the bone as it is harder feeling out there than across the eyelid itself.  But check with your doctor for permission.

   Massage by itself may be useful to help in the scar maturation process.  The key in this scenario is time.  Give yourself more time.  Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA
