Recovery After Your Surgical Procedure
Eyelid surgeries are performed in our Staten Island AAAHC-certified surgery center, and patients can return home the same day.
As you recover, you can expect mild to moderate swelling and bruising in the surgical areas. Pain and discomfort are minimal. Many patients do not even take the prescribed pain medication. You can expect to return to work and most normal activities in about a week. You should avoid strenuous activities for a couple of weeks.
You will need to see your surgeon for two to three follow-up visits after your surgery to ensure that you are healing well and your results are as expected.
