  • I’m 25. I had lasik eye surgery (femto) about 6 months back. Developed malar edema after may be 20-25 days. I literally woke up to the swollen malar area overnight. Initially I thought it was due to eye shields I had been using while sleeping. My GP said it may be due to messed up lymphatic drainage. The area was pigmented as well. It’s been around 5 months and the swelling has subsided. I can certainly say that but there’s still some swelling left. One side has more swelling than the other. I looked up on internet a lot over this topic (that’s how I found your channel). Some dermatologists say that the swelling should dissipate in 6-8 months if it is sudden (due to fillers, lasers, peels, etc). Will the edema go away on its own? Please help! Even looking after tonnes of topics on internet I did not find anyone getting them after laser eye surgery.
    P.S. I had teensy bit of malar bags before the surgery which I never noticed. I noticed them after some doctors claimed malar area usually swells if you have malar bags. So I went back and checked my pre op photos. And yes I did have them but the swelling has made them prominent. They were barely there before!

  • If half of the good youtube doctors were in my town instead of the dudes who claims as a doctors and cant diagnose my pain, id be a free human being.

  • You are not good awarded, none of these are true, I’m healthy, no problems at all, healthy food healthy life, my parents had not puffy eyes, but I have, for what reason, can you tell me?
