Bruising: The bruising is likely due to the recent surgery. Apply a cold pack to help relieve the swelling. If you develop pain or difficulty moving the eye, you should be evaluated immediately.

Have you called...: Your surgeon to ask about this? Do you have any post op instructions? Is there pain around the eye? Are you able to see normally out of the eye? Is the movement of your eye affected? How does your incision look? Have you had bleeding, swelling, or increasing pain at the surgical site? Without seeing it, I can't say that it's normal. Call your surgeon and ask. Someone should be on call 2help w/ UR?

Call the physician: If a patient notices swelling and bruising of the upper eyelid after a lipoma was removed from forehead it may be the result of some bleeding that seeped down to the eyelid. Call the physician for advice and apply cold compress to swollen area. If the swelling or bruising involves the eye itself you should see a physician today or go to Urgent Care center or ER.
