What’s Recovery Like After an Eyelid Lift?
Eyelid lift surgery will require a bit of recovery time after your procedure, though specifics will vary from patient to patient. Dr. Sethna will provide you with detailed instructions for caring for your eyes after surgery.
Most eyelid lift patients feel comfortable enough to return to work within the first 1-2 weeks. The majority of bruising and swelling should fade after about three weeks, but you can expect continued improvement as your skin heals over the next few months after your surgery.
If you experience any unexpected side effects after treatment, please contact our office immediately.
What Can I Expect for my Eyelid Lift Results?
- Initial Results at… 10-14 days
- Final Results at… 2-3 months
- Results last… Permanent*
You will notice the changes in the look of your eyes immediately after your surgery. There will be some bruising and swelling, but much of this will fade during the first month. After about 2-3 months, your eyelids should be fully healed, revealing a younger and revitalized look of your eyes.
*No cosmetic surgery can fully stop the aging process. It’s important to keep in mind that while your results are permanent in a sense, your skin will continue to age normally. However, the procedure will have you looking years younger than if you had not had the surgery, allowing you to look and feel your best at any age.
