Revision Blepharoplasty Recovery

Your recovery after revision eyelid surgery will mimic your original recovery period in many ways. Your vision may be temporarily blurry when you first awake due to moisturizing antibiotic creams applied to your lids. You may also receive prescription eye drops to prevent dryness, which should be applied several times a day according to your surgeon’s instructions. Over-the-counter pain medications will help offset any soreness or discomfort. Patients should take care to avoid washing their eyes for the first 48 hours after surgery. If dissolvable sutures have been utilized, they will slowly be absorbed over time. Any removable sutures will be taken out within 5-10 days post-op. Patients will typically return home the same day, accompanied by a friend or family member. Most will be able to begin walking around in the evening or the next morning after their procedure. Heavy lifting or vigorous exercise should be postponed for at least one week. However, gentle walks are encouraged and may help boost the patient’s overall mood and well-being. For the first 1-4 weeks, patients can expect mild bruising, swelling, and puffiness. Ice packs gently applied to the face can help mitigate these side effects. It is also recommended to sleep in an upright position for the first week. If scabbing or crusting occurs, avoid picking at the skin, as this can interfere with your aesthetic results. Patients can resume wearing cosmetics and contact lenses after the first few weeks, as advised by Dr. Carniciu. Sunglasses should be worn outdoors to protect the skin from harmful UV rays.
