What to Expect During the Blepharoplasty Healing Process

When the goal is to improve the appearance of the region around your eyes, blepharoplasty can help you immensely. Not only does it boost the aesthetics in this area, but it can also correct vision problems by eliminating excess and droopy skin.

Before you undergo blepharoplasty, you need to know what will happen after the procedure. The reason is that you can take adequate measures to ensure you are comfortable during the healing process.

Healing After Blepharoplasty

For the first week, the doctor will ask you to apply an ointment, to prevent your eyes from drying out. You can place ice packs on the area of treatment to speedsup the healing process.

While you take rest at home, make sure you elevate your head and keep it above your body. For seven days after the procedure, you shouldn’t participate in high-intensity activities. After all, you want your body to focus on healing over everything else.

If you need to step out, make sure you have adequate protection against the sun. Wearing sunglasses will prevent wind and sunlight from increasing the time to recover from the procedure. Do make sure the frames cover the eyes from the side. Also, make sure you apply sunscreen before you go outside.

Get Plenty Of Rest

The best thing you can do is rest for as much time as possible. Your body will start to recover faster, ensuring you are back on your feet in no time. After 7 to 14 days, the doctor will ask you to resume your regular activities.
