Healing After Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery: What Patients Should Know

By The Landings Surgical Centre on August 23, 2016


A woman closing her exquisite eyesThe Landings Surgical Centre is a leading resource for anti-aging and cosmetic rejuvenation for the people of Halifax. We offer a variety of surgical and non-surgical treatment options that can make people look their absolute best.

Cosmetic eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) is one such procedure that can make a major aesthetic difference. Rather than consider the surgery itself, we would like to consider the healing process and what patients can expect. This offers people interested in eyelift surgery an insight into healing and what the procedure can achieve.

What to Expect Right After Surgery

Right after undergoing a cosmetic eyelid surgery, it's not uncommon for people to experience issues with discomfort and grogginess. This is generally the result of the anesthesia as it wears off. Patients should get ample rest after surgery, lying on their back with the body propped up by a few pillows.

Dealing with Pain and Discomfort

Pain and discomfort are both common after surgery. It will be most noticeable in the first days after surgery, steadily abating as the days go by. Most issues with post-surgical pain and discomfort can be treated through the use of recommended pain relievers and continued rest.

Issues with Bruising and Swelling

Bruising and swelling are both common problems following all surgical procedures. The swelling after eyelid surgery will be most noticeable in the first week or so after the procedure has been performed. Bruising will tend to be most pronounced during this period as well. Patients should get past the swelling issues by the end of a week and a half to two weeks. Major swelling should have subsided by the end of two weeks, with some residual swelling for a few weeks after that.

Dealing with Dry Eye and Eye Irritation

After any surgery performed on the eyes, patients will note some amount of eye irritation, dry eye syndrome, and itchiness around the eyes. It's of the utmost importance that patients avoid rubbing or touching their eyes as they heal. To deal with eye irritation and dry eye, lubricating eye drops are most ideal. As for irritation of the eyelids, ointment, cream, or lotion may be provided to help ease the discomfort.

Shielding Your Eyes from the Sun

The sun can have a negative impact on healing and wellness, which is why staying out of direct sunlight while healing is crucial for great results. For the first week or so after eyelid surgery, be sure to wear sunglasses as well as a hat with a brim. Keeping the eyes and eyelids covered can help promote total wellness.

A Word on Post-Surgical Scarring

Scarring is a reality after any surgery, though thankfully the scarring from eyelid surgery is harder to notice than other procedures. Surgeons make small incisions either along the crease of the upper eyelids or just beneath the lower eyelashes. The surgical scars should be quite difficult to notice, and they will fade with time as well.

Attend All Follow-Up Visits as Scheduled

A few post-surgical follow-up visits will be scheduled in order to monitor your recovery and make adjustments and recommendations to ensure you heal properly. Be sure to attend all of these as scheduled. Should any issues rise while you are healing, contact the practice with your concerns so they can be addresses as soon as possible.
