Lower eyelid blepharoplasty will take 7-14 days to recover from. Mild discomfort is expected after the procedure, and ice packs are recommended for the first two days. Although lower eyelid blepharoplasty can cause bruising and swelling for up to seven to ten days and temporary blurred vision for up to 24 hours, there is minimal pain after the procedure. After the procedure, heavy lifting, contact lenses, swimming, and other strenuous activities should be avoided. Getting enough sleep and drinking plenty of fluids can help with recovery.
Will I Be Awake During a Blepharoplasty Procedure?
Lower eyelid blepharoplasty is performed with local anesthesia with sedation and takes 30-60 minutes. Local anesthesia will numb the incision area, and sedation will make you sleepy and relaxed. Your surgeon will ensure you are as comfortable as possible and safely sedated during the procedure. Immediately after the procedure, you will have nurse and physician supervision for a short period.
What Are the Benefits of an Eyelid Blepharoplasty?
Lower eyelid blepharoplasty can provide long-lasting results and restore your natural, youthful appearance. It can reduce the effects of aging on the skin and reduce sagging skin around the eyes, causing vision problems. Lower eyelid blepharoplasty can be customized to address each patient’s specific concerns. The treatment plan is based on the options that best address your needs and anatomical features.
