Big Eyelids after 5 weeks from Revision Ptosis Surgery
I have recently gone through a left eye ptosis surgery in one of our local hospital. However, this surgery was in fact a repeated surgery (2nd ops), I have done 1 surgery in 2007. It was unsuccessful and the eyelid droop after a month from the ops and it left me with a little bit of swelling which did not go down eventually. The swelling is still not that bad. I still look ok compare to this time round surgery. After few year apart, I decided for another surgery which took place on 28 Apr 11. I still look good after my surgery on 28 apr 11, the swelling was not that bad. But unfortunately, after my follow up with my specialist doctor on 3 May 11, he recommended me to go for revision surgery on 4 May 11 (just a few day apart from my surgery), initial is to re-adjust the stitches, to make it look better. My doctor afraid that I cant close my eyes and I might look weird with over-correction. During the my revision surgery, doctor discovered that there are more scars and he open up my wound and re-do the surgery again. With this, my eyelid was expanded than usual, i am now having a very big big eyelid compare to my right eye. My eyelid was extremely big and noticeable when people look at me. I am feeling very depressed over this matter. Please advice me anything can be done to my eyelid without affecting my ptosis which my doctor already lifted up the eyelid.
later part if my swelling doesn't comes down, what type of procedure can I go since I have ptosis corrected on my left
