The stitches which fixate the eyebrows to the forehead in the subcutaneous tissue can pull the skin for several weeks which is visible as a temporary dimple under the eyebrow. Swelling and bruises last for about ten days; however, it varies from patient to patient (based on experience, from one to several weeks). In people with eyes sensitive to the wind, who work behind the computer, or have an allergy to pollen, and if their common reaction is conjunctivitis (inflammation of the conjunctiva manifested as pink eyes with or without the lacrimation), such problems can also be expected after the eyelid operation. Similarly, problems with dry eyes can also appear when there is a lack of tears and it is manifested as a burning and tingling sensation in the eyes.
The scar is usually minimal and not visible when the eye is open. Sometimes, this scar is a little lifted in long-lasting swelling. However, it subsequently always lowers into the skin fold in the upper eyelid and hides there.
