What Can I Expect Immediately After Surgery?
Recovery after an eyelid lift is relatively straightforward compared to other surgeries. With over 26 years’ experience in the field, Dr. Stein has perfected his technique, ensuring minimal swelling and bruising. Because every procedure is unique to the patient, no two recoveries are exactly alike. You’ll receive a recovery and aftercare plan specific to your needs upon completion of the surgery.
What’s Recovery Like?
Like any surgery, you’ll need to take some time off of work and lay low – this will ensure minimal strain on the face, giving the muscles and skin time to heal directly after the procedure. You may be given instructions on how to care for your eyes and may be given prescriptions to keep pain levels to a minimum. Adhering to aftercare instructions is crucial to yielding the best results possible.
It’s important to listen to your body during this time – in general, you should refrain from strenuous activities for a few weeks until Dr. Stein gives you the clear.
