After lower eyelid surgery and a mini facelift i now how a bluish stain on top of each cheekbone plus a little fluid. The surgery was about 6 weeks ago and the stains on my face are not getting lighter. What are they, what is causing this and how do I get rid of this problem

This is most likely a post operative effect similar to a bruise, with, indeed as you say, a little fluid collection. However, six weeks is a long time for things to resolve post operatively.This warrants a call to the surgeons office, report this and ask them if you need to come in.dt______________ Click accept to give credit; positive feedback appreciated.

the surgeon says it is a stain and will eventually go away or he will give me bleach. is there another way to heal or remove this stain
In some cases pigment changes in the skin after some procedures such as dermabrasion can be perment. Most acutal "stains" should sluff of as skin itself remodles. Before bleeching you might ask your surgeon if any compounds such as alphs glycolic acids [which help remove old skin] might be helpful to try first. Goot Luckdt
