Hi, It would be best to consult your doctor immediately especially this is immediately after the surgery and could be a sign of infection nad might need drainage. Are you allergic to any specific substances? Have you had allergic reactions in the past? 'Puffy eyes can result from a number of causes, including: * Heredity * Fluid retention such as due to changes in weather or hormone levels * Allergies or dermatitis, especially if puffiness is accompanied by redness and itching * Certain medications * Kidney or thyroid dysfunction.' 'There are a number of steps you can take to prevent and reduce mild under-eye puffiness: * Get enough sleep at night. For most adults, seven to eight hours a night appears to be the best amount of sleep. * Sleep with your head slightly raised. Add an extra pillow or prop up the head of your mattress. This helps prevent fluids from accumulating around your eyes as you sleep. * While sitting up, apply a cool tap water compress to the skin under your eyes for a few minutes. You can also use chilled cucumber slices, a refrigerated gel mask or chilled, damp tea bags. * Reduce allergy symptoms. Avoid allergens when possible, and ask your doctor about over-the-counter or prescription allergy medications.' You could read more about the condition at the following link - http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/dry-eyes/DS00463/DSECTION=7 If puffiness is severe and persistent or you notice swelling (edema) in other parts of your body, see your doctor.
