My actual surgery date was 5/27/2015 and it is two weeks later and I am seeing my new eyelids heal and get better each day. Swelling has obviously deceased significantly, and I honestly feel like I healed fast throughout the entire process, maybe icing every other hour every single day since the surgery date until now helped extremely, along with elevated sleeping position until this day.
The only "scary" experience I had with this entire process was immediately after the surgery/ throughout the week up until I got the sutures removed, I noticed the shape/stitching of the incision was obviously asymmetric, but doing hours of research and reading about other people's experience prior to the surgery I knew this was common and is only temporarily due to swelling and what not. But obviously i was a bit skeptical and freaked out that it was going to stay that way even after healing, but I had to just patiently wait it out and hope for the best. It was only after getting the sutures removed, they started to look more symmetric and evened out.
Overall, I am so glad and excited I got this procedure done and I had an amazing experience overall. I just wish I got it done sooner! I can finally apply makeup with ease and it actually shows with my new eyelids! :)
