Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, is a common cosmetic surgery that can revitalize the eye area and rejuvenate your overall appearance. Although it is considered a safe procedure with few risks, there are some steps you can take before and after surgery to support healing and speed up your recovery.
Before Your Eyelid Surgery
If you are in good health, you can significantly reduce the possibility of complications during or after an eyelid surgery. A balanced diet can help ensure that your body recovers as quickly as possible. In addition, lifestyle adjustments you can make–such as reducing late nights and controlling sleep deprivation–that can help strengthen the body’s reserves.
After Your Eyelid Surgery
After a blepharoplasty, the average time for recovery is about 2 weeks. Depending on your profession, it may be necessary to take more than two weeks off before returning to work.
It is important to follow any post-operative instructions you are given.
