Eyelid Surgery Recovery
Most patients are publicly presentable after 7 days following eyelid surgery. At this stage, the swelling has mostly gone down, and the eyes will begin taking their new rejuvenated shape.
Following this, there is a further recovery period of several weeks for healing to complete. How long this takes depends primarily on your age and the healing ability of your body.
Dr. Langdon will give you clear instructions on how to care for your eyes, what medications to take, and how to reduce the risk of infection. You may experience some irritation or dryness of the eyes immediately following surgery. If so, you can use eye drops or prescribed medication.
Am I a Candidate for Eyelid Surgery?
If you are healthy and would like to alter the appearance of your eyelids, you could be a great candidate for eyelid surgery. The procedure can help eliminate drooping upper eyelids and lower lid bags long term.
