Read here and elsewhere that seems to indicate that the above may be true but more in passing, so I wanted to ask directly to confirm it. I had lower bleph with a combo of fat repositioning and removal. While I had no complications after the surgery and the initial swelling went away within a week, I seem to be healing very slowly with what I hope is only residual swelling left. Left eye looks ok but right eye has a well defined bag. I can still feel an ever so slight firmness under puffiness.
Lower blepharoplasty with fat positioning (six weeks ago) take longer to heal and longer swelling time? (photos)

Most of you swelling should be gone by now

6 weeks is still in the first phases of healing. Yes, the initial swelling is gone, but it takes months and up to a year depending on the intensity of the surgery to see your final result. It is a slow process and your surgeon is there to guide you along the way. Keep your follow-up appointments and bring up any concerns with your doctor. Safety first.
