Choose Upper Blehparoplasty after seeing a photo that showed my upper eyelids droop and aging me by ten years or more! After consult with the doctor I was well informed and confident of the procedure. It only took a little over an hour for the surgery with little to no pain or discomfort involved. It was done with a lazer rather than scapel.
There was no pain afterwards and I was given analgestic and antibiotics and an antibiotic ointment, and arnica cream for the bruising for aftercare. There was swelling and bruising for the next week or two. I used cold compresses for the first two weeks and healing was going along beautifully. Unti, at 3 weeks, l I got an allergic reaction to the paw paw ointment that I was told to use, then I changed to Petroleum jelly and then Bepanthen Cream and the inflammation swelled and reddened my wounds and eyelids again :( After consulting this website and my surgeon via email I used an ophlamic steroid cream Dermaid Soft 1% cream made by Ego which quickly made the inflammation subside and reduced most of the swelling.
So back to normal healing now at 3weeks and 6 days using the Dermaid Soft 1% Cream and Almond Oil and warm compresses now. And I might say a great result so far but I am still a little swollen and eyes are slightly distorted, but it's early days yet. Trying to be patient! :) I know it'll be a while yet before the healing is completed. BTW I changed my hair color at the same time as I had the surgery and everyone thinks that from going from Auburn to blonde has made me look 10 years younger ;) No one has noticed that I had the surgery, Food for thought?
