Eyelid Lift Healing — Dayton Surgery Recovery

Published on September 21, 2015

Nobody likes bags under their eyes. These puffy areas, created by deposits of fat and fluid, can be corrected by an eyelid lift. Eyelid lift healing is a fairly quick and painless process. Here’s an idea of what to expect after the blepharoplasty surgery.

Immediately following your eyelid lift, it’s common to experience some blurred vision caused by swelling. It’s important to understand that this only temporary and nothing to worry about. The majority of bruising and swelling will typically resolve in the first week. Your eyes may also feel tender or tight. Some minor pain or discomfort is fairly standard during the eyelid lift healing process. Ice packs should help to reduce swelling and speed up the recovery time.

The sutures are normally removed after five to six days after surgery, unless they are of the self-absorbing variety.

After the eyelid lift healing process is complete, you’ll look and feel younger. Learn more about eyelid lifts by requesting a consultation with our experienced surgeons at the Plastic Surgery Institute of Dayton.
