Eyelid surgery improves signs of aging and comes with the following cosmetic benefits:

  • Removes excess skin and fat.

  • Removes puffiness or bags above or below your eyes.
  • Reverses wrinkle lines of the lower lid.

Moreover, many patients also receive eyebrow lifts for functional purposes to prevent the following problems:

  • Sagging eyelids that affect your field of vision.
  • Excess folds of skin that rub together, creating irritations.
  • Discomfort in the forehead from lifting sagging eyelid skin.

What Can I After Blepharoplasty?

It is important to us that our patients that are interested in eyelid surgery take the time to understand what the recovery for blepharoplasty entails.

  • Recovery period may last between 2 to 4 weeks
  • Initial swelling is normal, and should subside within several weeks. Patients may not be able to fully realize final results for a few months following the blepharoplasty.
  • Eyes will feel tight and swollen following surgery – this is normal and will dissipate as the patient continues to heal.
  • After surgery, it is important that the patient rest with their head elevated

The recovery after blepharoplasty plays an important role into the surgery’s final result. To preserve the work that your plastic surgeon has done, rest and relaxation are essential. During initial surgery consultations at Associated Plastic Surgeons & Consultants, PC, we thoroughly discuss the recovery process to each patient, and will tailor it to their specific needs.
