Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
The nurse after I had upper lid surgery used this magnetic wand with gel on my eyelids to heal and dissolve the bruising from the surgery. I was wondering if this could have caused the ptosis on the left eye that now is drooping more. I had it before surgery 2 years ago but it wasn't as bad then.
She used it directly on my incisions on the eyes lightly. I did dissolve the bruising fast
excess skin. He is a very good surgeon and highly recommended, so I was a bit disappointed when my left eyelid was was lower after I healed. I saw my before photos and my eye was slightly different, but my right eye now look round and the left looks almond and lid lower. Not severely but you can tell. I went back to him and he said revision and ptosis. I was thinking about why he didn't address this and fix it before the surgery
I did have more than average swelling during the surgery, so maybe that was difficult to be precise.
I think my swelling was due to too much fish oil I had been taking before the surgery.
This magnetic machine had a 3 letter name, like TRM or something
I was thinking that my right eye was now so much more open that maybe it made it more obvious, but the left lid hits the top of my iris lower than the left by a centimeter.
than the right i meant
It's funny, my two eyes have always felt different because I am able to completely shut the left lid while the right one is completely. I figured the muscle was a little different from the other one because most people can't do that.
I am having the surgery again next month. and curious as to if you think the magnetic therapy could have done this
Would swelling have been a reason to not get it exact
Not enough skin off could cause the droopy lid couldn't it? He is having an eye specialist come in during the revision this time
okay I must have the appearance but he said it wasn't a result of the surgery and I asked if it was Ptosis and he said yes.
The before photo I saw was slight but maybe 2 years made a difference. What causes Ptosis
Why does it slip and Is it easily fixed ?
Can it become stretched from skin tightening machines used on the lid like Thermage?
That's what I have done in the past Thermage of the lids
okay Thank you so much for your help. You are always so good at answering my questions.
I'll let you know how it goes
