What Can I Expect After Surgery?
You can expect to see results within several weeks. For some, the results of blepharoplasty may last a lifetime; others may experience a recurrence of droopy lids.
After the Procedure
Recovery time is dependent on the extent of the surgery to address your individual goals. You can go home the same day of this outpatient surgery after you’ve been monitored for any complications.
Following surgery, you may temporarily experience:
- Tightness and soreness
- Blurred or double vision
- Light Sensitivity
- Watery, dry, itchy, or sticky eyes
- Swelling and bruises
- Puffy, numb eyelids
You will be given aftercare instructions and, if needed, medicine to help with pain and discomfort.
What to Expect at Home
Your eyelids may be swollen and bruised for 1-3 weeks, but their appearance may continue to improve over three months. Most patients can return to work in two weeks, though bruising around the eyes can last longer.
