: I am three weeks post-op from having a blepharoplasty, browlift and liposuction to my neck.

: The first two weeks were terrible as to me my eyes looked Elizabethan (rounded and slightly sunken) as opposed to my natural eyese, which in hindsight were pretty, just slightly hooded. I also had the lower lids done and am generally happy with that (it removed the bags under my eyes).

: This morning, for the first time, I noticed that my left eye looks a bit "lazy" and not symmetrical with my right eye. I am chalking this up to the numbness which persists but I am terrified that this is permanent.

: Also, my neck is a bit mis-shapen where the lipo was done.

: The coronal area of my skull - center and from ear to ear, is still numb and so is my left temple (where the left lazy eye is).

: Anyone have any experience with this?

: My surgeon was Dr. Ira Papel of Owings Mills, MD. Anyone know about this doctor? he came highly recommended by another plastic surgeon I had been seeing for some time previously.

: Thanks.

RE: Blepharoplasty, Browlift and Lipo to Neck

I too had a Bleph. 3 weeks ago. I too have a somewhat lazy eye (my husband said it's not noticeable but I think he's just being kind. The reason for the lazy eye look in my case seems to be assymetry. The incisions were in slightly different places on each eye so one lid has more area than the other. My lower lid is also numb and droops slightly.
the other eye has a rather deep scar at the lateral side where he stitched it very tightly. I'm not sure how I feel about all of this. The overall effect will probably be better
than my former hooded eyes, but only if the scars underneath and to the sides fade and the redness of the scars goes away. My doctor had absolutely amazing credentials; Harvard Suma Com Laude, professor at a prestigious university, textbook author, designer of parts for jaw reconstructions, cleft palate surgery, etc. He only does surgery at the neck and above (no lipo, etc) so I'm fairly sure he is as good as they come. The issue is that humans with the free hand cannot be exact when cutting, stitching, etc. and we also respond differently depending on physiological differences. I'm hoping my eyes will settle down, and look more similar, the scars will fade, etc. but I think I'm cured from ever having anything else done to my face. Thanks for listening. Jaye
