Under the skin tear?


On Nov. 8th I had lower eye lid surgery to get rid of fat-pockets. Two weeks since the surgery, I have an issue with my left eye. In the area of the Lateral Canthus it feels like the eye is tearing under the skin. It feels like my eye is tearing and when I wipe it with a tissue there is no moisture. On my 7 day check-up my doctor said it's no big deal and it will go away. It's been two weeks and my issue has not gotten any better. Can you make a suggestion? Thank You.


You can have different sensations during the first 3 months after your Blepharoplasty. You will see the final result after that period, be patient.
