Lifestyle ~ African American Ethnic Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery) Day 13 - Day 16

African American Ethnic Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery)
Day 13 - Day 15 I am still in full healing mode and my spirits remain high.  I'm pretty active going to the gym and doing yoga, cycling and power walking occasionally.

Day 16 was my Doctor's appt. I was given the okay to wear my contacts and makeup if I wanted to. I told him my concerns and her agreed with me on all points.  My first concern was of course the bruising that still appeared, well he told me to give it 4 to 6 weeks and it will totally be gone... so I will wait.  I'm not sore but it just doesn't seem to want to go away!

My left eye is healing perfectly and is folding correctly as it should. My right ey (the ptosis eye) is giving me problems because it isn't folding up into the crease as it should.  He looked at it and felt some scar tissue (my deepest fears) underneath, so he injected me with a steroid solution to flatten out the scar and to break up the scar tissue. He gave me two prescriptions, one was a 100% silicon gel and the other was Tri-Luma a fade cream.  The silicon gel i'm supposed to apply at night right over the scar and put the Steri-Strip tape on top to provide pressure to keep it flat. The Tri-Luma I will apply in the mornings right over the scar and underneath my makeup if I wear any.
