Upper eyelid punctal eversion after ptosis surgery

Can upper eyelid punctal eversion after ptosis surgery be resolved on its own? Or it has to be fixed?

I had two ptosis surgeries back to back, the last one being 10 days ago. I saw punctal eversion since day 1. Can this go back to normal as I heal. I can’t close my eye completely and I see the eyelid flipped outward a little medially. My crease looks high. Can it be everted because it is too high or tight?

It is always best to consult with the doctor that performed your surgery but I can tell you that 10 days after back to back surgical procedures is way too soon to pass judgement on your final results. Without even seeing you I am certain that you are edematous (swollen) and that can certainly affect function and shape of your lid. Light massage and compression masks will probably help speed things along but please get your surgeons approval first.
