Swelling vs Fat following lower blepharoplasty
Thank you for sharing your question. If the blepharoplasty was recently performed, you will have to wait to find out if the bulge is fat or fluid. You are properly managing the issue at this point. Allow more time to pass before judging results.
What to do with a bulge in the lower eyelid?
This may be swelling, in which case you are doing the right things and time will improve it. If it is fat, it will need to be addressed.
This should go down given enough time.Heat and massage will help it go down more quickly.Lo salt also helps.
This early after surgery swelling could be a factor
but if it persists you may need to be reevaluated.
In that case retained fat pocket could be a possibility.
