Postoperative Concern

I had upper lid blepharoplasty 3 weeks ago and my right lid is drooping more than before surgery. My eyebrow is noticably lower than and I have no muscle control of my eyebrow at all and my right eyelid does not close all the way I was told to massage my lid, tape my lid closed when I sleep and use ice packs which I've done religiously since the surgery. Nothing has changed and I'm very worried.

A examination most likely will be required to address your concerns. Consider seeking out a second option with a local ASPS member that performs Occuplastic Surgery. Best,

Thank you for sharing your question and photograph. It would be best to call your surgeon to describe your concerns as they know the full details of your surgery.

Cindy, I regret your problem. If your surgeon in America Board of Plastic Surgery certified, or certified by an appropriate Board that deals with Eyelid Surgery, then get back to him/her immediately. If he/she is not, then go to an ABPS certified surgeon, now. There are plenty in in your part of the country.
