copd and plastic surgery

I had a stupid accident with my face...nephew though he could jump over me without telling me. As he was coming over, I looked up and the heels of his feet, with shoes on, landed on my face, my cheeks to be exact. I had plastic surgery years ago to fix an ectropian from a previous bleph.  

When my nephew landed on my cheeks, it pulled my upper, outer cheeks down and the outer corners of my eyes came down. Now my pretty eyes are so droppy and sad looking. I need them fixed. I just cry when I look in the mirror. This happened right before Christmas. I was at the hospital for what I now know was an anxiiety attack. At the hospital, they told me I might possibly have mild copd. I'm terrified that I cannot get my eyes fixed now.

I don't need oxygen or breathing treatments, my oxygen level was at a 100%... I will be seeing my family doctor soon. But right now, I just don't know what to think.

That does sound like an unfortunate accident.  It is a good idea to see your family doctor regarding your medical conditions including the COPD.  A detailed discussion between your family doctor and the plastic surgeon will determine if you are a candidate for further surgery.

If it turns out I can't, what are my options? Are there minor procedures that can be done in the office, under local anesthesia, that can at least lift the corners of my eyes? I'll just have to deal with my cheeks the way they are.
