When considering undergoing eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) one of the first things you should be made aware of what to expect during the recovery time and weeks ahead.
What to Expert After Eyelid Surgery in Atlanta
While you’re recovering from blepharoplasty in Atlanta you will have certain restrictions to keep in mind as you heal.
Immediately Following Surgery:
The anesthesia you were given may cause nausea and sleepiness. If being “put to sleep” for surgery has caused you to be sick before, you should let us know beforehand. We may be able to prescribe you an anti-nausea medication. Resting and/or sleeping in bed for a while will help you get over these side effects faster.
A Few Days After Your Procedure:
Your eyes may feel tight, hot, or tender. For pain you can take the medication we prescribed. Common symptoms during this stage are blurred vision, minor sight impairments, bruising and swelling. As the area heals it may begin to itch but you should avoid rubbing or scratching your eyelids.
10 Days Following Surgery:
Though you may still have slight bruising, swelling, and blurred vision, you should be close to normal and can return to work. You may resume normal daily activities but avoid anything strenuous.
2-3 Weeks After Surgery:
At this stage, most patients can begin wearing eye makeup and contact lenses. Participating in more strenuous exercises and activities are approved, but contact sports should still be avoided.
4-6 Weeks Post-Op:
This is when you’ll see the final results and have all your restrictions lifted. Congrats!
