Uneven Eyes After Blepharoplasty

Please help, I'm really stressed out about this.
It’s been two months since I had upper eyelid blepharoplasty. Now, I feel like my eyes are uneven. Is this even possible, or am I just imagining things? No one has mentioned it because I always wear eyeliner, so it’s not very noticeable.

Hello,If your surgery was performed by a skilled surgeon, there should be no cause for alarm. It is possible that the issue is due to swelling in the eyelid area, which should resolve over time.In any case, you can send us a photo for a more precise evaluation or visit in person for a consultation. This way, we can better assess the situation and provide you with appropriate advice.

It’s understandable to be concerned about this, but give your body time to heal. Asymmetry can result from how the swelling subsides and this usually evens out over time. Make sure you’re following your post-op care instructions closely, and if you're still concerned, a consultation with your surgeon might help put your mind at ease. They can assess whether what you’re seeing is part of the normal healing process.

Hello! It's not uncommon to notice some asymmetry during the healing phase after a blepharoplasty. Swelling can sometimes be uneven and might give the impression that the eyes are not symmetrical. Give it some time, as it can take several months for all the swelling to subside and the final results to stabilize. If the unevenness persists, you should discuss it with your surgeon.

Hi there, experiencing some asymmetry shortly after blepharoplasty is fairly common due to differential swelling and healing rates. For now, I would recommend waiting a bit longer as it often resolves as the healing progresses. Keep monitoring the situation and if it doesn’t improve, consider visiting your surgeon for a follow-up.

That sounds stressful, but try not to worry too much at this stage. Asymmetry immediately after surgery is often due to swelling and doesn't necessarily reflect the final outcome. It's also possible that wearing eyeliner might be accentuating the appearance of asymmetry. Wait for a few more months to see if it evens out, and keep in close contact with your surgeon about your concerns.
