Want to ask more about my previous question. Had upper eyelid skin graft done 1 mth ago to lengthen my eyelids about 3mm so i have better eye closure,but the result was very bad. It just changed my identity! The eye closure doesnt improve. I consider to remove the grafts, when can it be done?Some surgeons told me the grafts can be removed in 3 months. Is it too soon to do that?Can I restore my previous eyes after remove? I really hate the graft. I've decided to remove them. Just want to when?
Upper eyelid skin graft?

Eyelid skin grafts
require time to heal and smooth out and if you do remove them, you will return to your pre-op situation where you cannot close your eyes. A photo would help considerably and generate more responses to your concerns. Trust your surgeon to want to do the best job for you and achieve the desired outcome.
