I had an upper eyelid lift on one of my eyes a week ago and it is still swelling periodically throughout the day and night. The swelling is only on the one side of my face. Did my doctor do something wrong?


This is common so there is no need for alarm. Swelling is most visible during the first week after surgery and it will gradually subside in the next two weeks. I advise that you sleep with your head elevated and that you regularly use ice to prevent more swelling from occurring. It is also important to wear sunglasses when you go outside.
