The puffy bags under the eyes that make many of us look tired are created by deposits of fat. Luckily, this unsightly issue doesn’t have to be permanent. Many people are now realizing the benefits of an eyelid lift, or blepharoplasty.
Blepharoplasty recovery is a relatively quick and painless process patients need to be prepared for. Here are a few things one can expect after surgery.
During blepharoplasty recovery, the bruising and swelling usually goes away in the first week following surgery. Ice packs and proper elevation will help. Your eyes may also feel tender, tight, or sore. Some minor pain or discomfort is also pretty standard.
After the blepharoplasty recovery process is complete, you’ll look and feel younger and well rested. Learn more about eyelid lifts by requesting a consultation with board-certified cosmetic surgeon Dr. Sean Younai, who services the Encino area.
