I had upper eyelid surgery 8 weeks ago, still bruised. One eyelid is more swollen in morning & eyelids are itchy?

bruising has moved down to my cheekbones

Eyelid swelling can be extensive

Swelling after eyelid surgery can persist for months. Eyelid massage and application of either steroid eye drops or steroid topical cream will help the itching. Please see your surgeon for advise and medications.

The bruising will all eventually subside, you may need some skin care products or even a bleaching cream to help resolve that problem.

Good Luck!
