I explained about the bumps in my previous post-"bumps on outer corner of eyes", but I tried to take pics of them with no make up. They are a little blurry as it is hard to get that close. I am looking for any suggestions on how they might be treated. I am 15 mos. p.o. and p.s. has done CO2 on them about 10 weeks ago. He will cut them out if I want, but I am afraid of more scars. I hate them. Any other suggestions?
I have the same bumps after having an U/L bleph w/cantho and direct browlift 3 1/2 weeks ago. My PS told me they are fluid pockets but I doubt that. My guess is its scar tissue that will need to be removed. I go back to see her in 2 weeks and will decided if I need a few minor revisions including lifting my out corners a bit more.
3 1/2 weeks is still pretty early--so much can happen. They may go away on their own. Hopefully ! I did have a question though. You mentioned raising the corners a bit. Can they do that? And if they can- is it a whole revision or cantheplexy or is it just an in office procedure? I would love for my ps to be able to lift the corners a bit especially on the bottom if he removes these bumps. Keep me posted and happy healing!
I'm sorry, when I had my bleph 15 mos. ago, I knew what most of these terms meant, however it has since escaped me!lol! What is a SOOF? Cantho is the one where they tighten the muscles/tendons/ligments/, I think???? So would she be able to lift the corners by doing something simple or would it require something more involved? Thanks for the info.
I had the same bump since my rt lower bleph revision over a year ago. Immediately after surgery it was hard and fluid filled, like pea.. Over the past year it's flattened and softened and looks like a small welt. I believe this resulted from the way the incision was closed; it's called a "dog ear" and looks this way because the skin was slightly gathered when stitched. At my one year follow up, my PS said basically "live with it", as a scar revsion would look even worse. If it still bothers me several months down the road, I will seek another PS's opinion to see if it could be easily fixed. AFter dealing with my old PS since June 2004, I think we're both "sick" of eachtoehr and I'm glad never to be going back again!
trning 50...if it was me[i had upper&lower bleph 19 months ago]i would have the Dr.cut them out..it was hard to tell from photos they were small but if i clicked on them way to big and blurry...maybe just my computer.keep us posted annemarie
I also have the exact same thing that GS mom has described. I have one under my right eye where the incision would have ended and it looked harder and pea like in the beginning but now it is softer and more welt like. Somedays its more noticable than others. I am at 8 months and I am doubtful it will go away. I did have two smaller ones on my left side that cleared up on their own so anything is possible. I think I will live with mine if my only other option is to cut it out.
thanks everyone for the suggestions and information. Ihave several things to talk to him about that I got off of this board-like steriod, kenalog or 5FU injections. Maybe even a lateral brow lift. All though right now , I'm not ready for anything to major, so we'll see what he has to say. At least I feel somewhat informed now. Thanks so much!!!!!
i think you should see another surgeon, there is no harm in getting different opinions, even though it can be emotionaly tolling. also i think you would benefit from fat grafting to your uppers close to your nose to give a more youthfull apearance. best wishes
