The face is very rich in blood vessels, reacts strongly to attacks and surgery, even practiced with gentleness.
This reaction to the aggression manifests itself in two ways: the bruising and swelling.
- Bruising reflects the distribution of a small amount of blood under the skin, the common “blue” after a stroke. The gradual reduction of these bruises will pass the skin from blue to green, from green to yellow. The importance of these bruises are difficult to predict. Their demise is certain, but more or less rapid, usually within three weeks.
- Swelling, edema, is another way of reacting tissues of the face. This swelling can sometimes be very fast and impressive on the eyelids, cheeks. Deflation is usually very fast.
It will take a little patience (ten days to a month) that these phenomena have disappeared. Then we will not see that you had surgery.
Scars on the face should be almost invisible, hidden on the outskirts, hair, ears, nostrils.
They are exposed at the level of the eyelids, but this is the only place in the body where you can say a scar usually becomes truly invisible.
