What is the recovery period like after Eyelid Surgery?

Usually, you will need a ride home after the procedure. Your eyelids will be lubricated and bandages may or may not be applied. After the anesthetic wears off, your eyelids may feel tight and sore. Your surgeon may offer you a prescription for pain medication which you should fill before the procedure.

If the post-operative pain is severe, this may indicate a serious problem and you need to call your surgeon immediately. Once at home, keep your head elevated and use cold compresses. It is important to keep your eyes clean; your doctor will give you instructions on how to do this.

Eye drops or ointments will be provided to lubricate the eyes. Bruising is normal and peaks about a week after the procedure. The bruises may last 2-4 weeks but can usually be covered with makeup by about 10 days.

Activity can usually be resumed in 3-5 days and most patients return to work about 10 days after the procedure. Swelling usually lasts one to two weeks but in some cases can last months
