Revision Incision Parallel Crease, 8mm, Medial Epicanthoplasty - Los Angeles, CA

Day 17 eye update
1 Month and 1 week
Just wanted to share an update - it's been 1 month and a week. Just went to see Dr. Choi to get steroid injections to prevent additional keloid scarring from the epi as my eyes continue to heal. As you can see, there are a few raised reddish bumps on the inner corners already. It doesn't bug me because I can cover those with undereye concealer but hopefully more won't form. My eyelids are still a bit swollen but they look fine and I go out with eyeshadow / fill makeup on. The crease folds a little above incision line especially for one eye (doctor had offered to fix that for me when I got my stitches out but I declined it because it still looked even enough to me and I didn't want to extend the healing time). Otherwise, the crease is healing perfectly without any major scarring / bumps (knock on wood.)
I've attached pictures of my eyes with and without makeup from today.
Compared to the other healing photos I've seen, Dr. Choi's incisions were clean and nicely done so the healing was very quick with minimal bruising and scarring. He was also a perfectionist so that when I went back to have the stitches removed, he refined/restitched the epicanthoplasty was was uneven on my right eye so it took another 5 days, but my eyes are super even! It's only been 2 weeks but all I'm waiting for now is for the swelling to continue to go down. The stitches he used were very fine and he placed them in skillfully so there is no scarring from those either. I would totally recommend!
