I just had my cheek bone and the bone under my eye repaired after being traumatically broken. The surgeon placed three plates like a triangle to secure the bones. One incision he used to do this was my upper eyelid. My eye is still quite swollen and my eyelid is not moving at all. He assures me this will go back to normal with time and eyelid movement. Can you please expand on this? Is this normal recovery? How long before my eyelid opens completely? I did not expect this to happen as he told me nothing would be droopy after surgery. Thank you.
