How Does Blepharoplasty Work?
You can have blepharoplasty on your upper or lower eyelids, depending on the areas that cause the most concern. You can also have both eyelids treated for maximum rejuvenation. Your Longwood Plastic Surgery surgeon performs both procedures under local or general anesthesia in our accredited surgical suite. Carefully hidden incisions may allow the removal of excess skin and fat with no visible scarring. You will feel no discomfort during the procedure, which may take one to three hours.
How Long is Recovery From a Blepharoplasty?
After your blepharoplasty, you can expect some minor discomfort, swelling, and bruising. These effects will improve significantly within a few days. Most people return to work within a week unless they have a physically demanding job. Your LPS surgeon will let you know when you can resume your exercise routine and other strenuous activities. Follow these instructions carefully to ensure a smooth recovery process.
