Recovery From Blepharoplasty


Following an eye lift procedure, topical antibiotic ointment will be applied. Eye patches rarely are necessary .In this article we discuss about .recovery from blepharoplasty

.On the first day, you should apply cold packs each hour you are awake, for about 10 to 15 minutes at a time. The ice should reduce the swelling and keep bruising to a minimum. On the second day, apply cold packs every few hours for about 10 to 15 minutes at a time.

After 48 hours, warm compresses should be applied to promote faster healing.

Your eye doctor will instruct you about what pain medication to take, if needed. Most people need only non-prescription pain relievers. Narcotics rarely are necessary.

Expect mild discomfort during the immediate recovery period. But if pain is severe or vision changes occur, call your surgeon’s office immediately.

While you recover, your eye area will be bruised and red with swollen eyes, particularly during the first few days. The whites of your eyes (sclera) also may become red and bloodshot. It may take a few weeks for healing to be complete, during which time you should not wear eye makeup.

You can resume wearing contact lenses when the eyelid swelling subsides enough to allow the lenses to be comfortable. If you wear eyeglasses, you can put them on carefully at any time after surgery.

Often the sutures used for your procedure will dissolve on their own in four to seven days, and you will not need to have them removed. If non-dissolving sutures are used, then your surgeon will remove them about a week after the procedure.

Most people who undergo eyelid surgery report satisfaction and improved self image. Those whose vision was hampered by excess folds of skin often have improvements in the visual field they are able to see.

Possible Complications of Eyelid Surgery

A possible complication of eyelid surgery is a temporary inability to close your eyelids completely. This means that eyes may become abnormally dry.

Usually this condition resolves after a few weeks or months, during which time you would need remedies such as eye drops, humidifiers and even taping the eyes closed at night to provide lubrication. Some surgeons will have you massage your eyelids a couple of weeks after the stitches have been removed, to soften the remaining skin and allow better closure of your eyelids.

If the condition persists beyond two or three months, an additional procedure might be required to restore enough skin to the eyelid to enable complete closure over the eye.

Other potential complications of blepharoplasty include:

  • Vision loss from retrobulbar hemorrhage
  • Eyelid infection
  • Double vision
  • Noticeable surgical scarring
  • Malpositioned eyelids
  • Undercorrection (not removing enough of the excessive skin)
  • Overcorrection (removing too much skin)
  • Numbness of the eyelids

As mentioned above, always call your surgeon immediately when you have symptoms such as severe pain or a change in vision following a procedure.

What Does Eyelid Surgery Cost?

Blepharoplasty cost varies, depending on the region of the country where you live, the surgeon, the surgeon’s subspecialty, the facility where the surgery is performed and the extent of eyelid surgery you need.
