How can I remove a scar on my eyelid after a chalazion surgery?

Scars...: Are permanent and cannot be removed. Generally the best scars on the body are on the eyelids because of the excellent blood supply and thinness of the skin. Scars take some time to mature, however, and don't assume their final appearance for 6-12 months. See a board certified plastic, facial plastic, or ophthalmic plastic surgeon for a definitive opinion. Read more

Before chalazion surgery eyelid is numb or not?

Before chalazion surgery eyelid is numb or not?

Usually: The eyelid is anesthtized ("numbed") before the incision and drainage of a chalazion (chronic stye). Some times for a hordeoulm (acute inflamed stye) it can just be incised with a needle a scalple if it is near draining spontaneously, and this will allow it to resolve without a more extensive surgery requiring anesthetic.

I have a chalazion in my bottom eyelid. It's pretty swollen and ugly. Is there a way to "pop" it? I cannot afford surgery. I've had it for too long.

I have a chalazion in my bottom eyelid. It's pretty swollen and ugly. Is there a way to "pop" it? I cannot afford surgery. I've had it for too long.

Chalazions: These do require surgical 'unroofing' so that they don't come back. Even, if there was a way to just 'pop' them, they would return fairly quickly. Sorry that there is no quick and easy answer about it. Good luck. Read more

Eye surgery: The best thing to do when you have a question about a surgical procedure is to ask the doctor who performed it since they are the most knowledgeable. Swelling of this nature is not unusual and is one of the classic responses of the body to trauma. Surgery is controlled trauma. You should get better with time, but talk to your doctor anyway.

2 months after chalazion eye surgery & if I look closely at the eyelid looks bigger than the other & when I touch it there's nothing is it normal?

Possible residual: Chalazion surgery approach removes the major cyst from the lid from the inside. Sometimes there is a small sort of satellite cyst near the major one which can be unrecognized at the time of primary removal. When all heals this can then be felt. Check with the ophthalmologist who removed yours and see if this is the case. Read more
