I'm 41 male and after a period of periorbital inflammation

Customer Question

Hello I'm 41 male and after a period of periorbital inflammation and swelling the eye opening around both eyes appears to be stretched a bit which exposes some tissue nearest the tear ducts in both eyes. I have a mild amount of dryness and of course cosmetically this is a little distressing. Can the eyelids be sewn slightly shut and re healed to restore the normal shape of my eye openings and what kind of doctor would do this? Any otger information you could provide me would be great.
