Facial Edema

Q:

I had eyelid surgery and a brow lift. It has been 4 months and my eyelids and face and neck are still very swollen. Seems like I have sprung a lymphatic leak! My surgeon is at a loss for an explanation. I feel like a mangled mess.

A:

Debbie,

 Angioedema following perioccular surgery can be quite a nuisance. Conservative treatments often assist in the resolution. If your surgeon does not know what to do consider a second option with one of the many OccuoPlastic ASAPS Member Surgeons in your area. They should be able to advise you on best to proceed. 

 Best,

 

Gary R Culbertson, MD, FACS
