What to Expect: Eyelid Surgery Recovery

By: Paul Johnson, MD

 

As an oculoplastic surgeon, I perform many different types of eyelid surgery for my patients. I receive many questions centered around the recovery process and what patients can expect after the procedure. Read on to discover more about eyelid surgery recovery at Matossian Eye Associates.

Day Of Surgery

In most cases, the procedure is done in the surgery center under sedation. These are outpatient procedures, which means you would arrive and leave the surgery on the same day without staying overnight.

Days After Surgery

After surgery, you will be out of commission for 2 to 4 days depending on how extensive the procedure is. Patients typically experience very little pain, but I write a prescription for a pain medication just in case.

Bruising and swelling tends to last between 10-14 days and can be covered with sunglasses or over-the-counter concealers such as Dermablend®. After the first few days of rest and recovery, you can resume most daily activities. We do ask that you avoid heavy lifting and exercise for one week after the procedure.

Post-Operative Visits

I usually see my patients in the office twice during the first two weeks after surgery, in order to to remove stitches and to make sure they are healing appropriately. Throughout the recovery process, I am very much in contact with each individual patient to answer any questions they might have and to make sure they are progressing through the recovery.

Thanks to advances in technology and surgical technique, our eyelid surgery patients can now enjoy a fast recovery and the desired result.

At Matossian Eye Associates, we do everything we can to make sure that your surgery goes smoothly and that you have the best results possible. Call our office today to schedule your consultation so that we can answer any questions specific to your unique condition!
