How Long Does Drooping Eye Surgery Take?

How Long Does Drooping Eye Surgery Take?

Drooping eye surgery repair can take 30-60 minutes, and most patients can return to work after one week. Blepharoplasty can correct excessive skin on the upper eyelid that is creating a hooding effect, and ptosis repair can repair the tendon that holds the eyelid in a normal position that can be damaged from an injury or acquired during the aging process. Surgery on just the upper or lower eyelid will be shorter than a procedure on both. 

Is Drooping Eye Surgery Painful?

Drooping eye surgery can improve the patient’s vision and reduce fatigue and tension headaches caused by drooping. This can occur when the muscles that lift the eyelid lose strength. Drooping eye surgery is a non-painful procedure that is performed under local anesthesia. There is minimal pain after the procedure, although some discomfort is normal. Temporary blurred vision may occur for up to 24 hours after the procedure and swelling and bruising can last for seven to ten days. The risks associated with drooping eye surgery are low.
