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

I just had my chalazion excised on the upper eyelid. What I should and shouldn't do? And when can I remove the patch?

I just had my chalazion excised on the upper eyelid. What I should and shouldn't do? And when can I remove the patch?

Eye meds: An incision & drainage of a chalazion usually requires a 7-10 day course of an antibiotic or antiobiotic-steroid eye drop medication. Occasionally cold compresses for a day to decrease swelling, & Tylenol (acetaminophen) or aleve for pain management. Keeping the eyelid clean is important. I will add back warm compresses after a week if there is a persisting nodule. The recovery is usually 2-4 weeks. ...Read more

Chalazion: Could be there is still scar tissue in that gland or an adjacent gland. There are about 20-25 glands in the upper eyelid & each gland can get clogged/chalazion. See your surgeon about injecting a small amount of steroid (risks: see eyedoc2020@blogspot.com) or re-excision which is sometimes needed. ...Read more

What's the worst that can happen if the eye chalazion is not removed?  Can it go away on its own?

If you do warm: compresses long enough, often enough when it's not enlarged to a point of needing surgical drainage, you can reverse it. Overall, it means you have a long standing problem with eye dryness, not blinking enough, blepharitis, and need to see your eye doctor regularly to get this under control better. So, it's best to work with your eye doctor on this to remedy together. ...Read more

I just had a chalazion removed and wasn't given post op instructions. I currently have a patch on my left eye. What should I do?

Remove patch in AM: Keep lashes clean by gently washing with baby shampoo. Cool compresses help to keep swelling of healing down. Tylenol (acetaminophen) can be used for pain (avoid aspirin). It is rare to need an antibiotic as the lids have good circulation, but if the eyes have discharge, see the ophthalmologist for an evaluation. Any swelling or bruising should be gone within a week. ...Read more

Yes, it is locally: draining, and follow your eye doctors advice on post-procedure healing efforts. Reduce computer usage over the weekend and baby the healing of your eyelid now for best recovery. The areas just incised will have some edema present from the inflammatory nature of your chalazion. It will improve daily. ...Read more
