How Long is Recovery from a Blepharoplasty?

Do you have sagging eyelids that make you look older than you actually are?

Are you constantly being told that you look tired or sad – even when you’re feeling upbeat and well-rested?

If so, it may be time to discover the power of blepharoplasty surgery. This procedure – commonly referred to as an eyelid lift – is a great choice for people who have sagging skin around their upper eyelids (upper blepharoplasty) or large bags underneath their eyes (lower blepharoplasty). 

A blepharoplasty can help erase years off of your appearance, as well as help you appear energetic, focused, and bright-eyed.

Let’s take a closer look at how long your blepharoplasty recovery may last, including how to have a quicker blepharoplasty recovery.

How Long Will My Blepharoplasty Recovery Last?

At Awaken Aesthetics, our eyelid lift patients can expect to return to non-physical work about two to three days after surgery.

Most of your swelling and bruising should be gone by week two; any residual bruising can be covered with makeup. Your surgical incisions may be mildly red for about four weeks after surgery.

How to Recover from Blepharoplasty Surgery Quickly

The best way to quickly recover from your blepharoplasty surgery is to carefully follow your plastic surgeon’s post-op plan. That recovery plan may include:

  • Not lifting anything above 20 pounds
  • Avoid bending over for at least one week
  • Avoid straining to reach or pick anything up for at least one week
  • Resting as much as possible for 24 to 48 hours after your surgery

“I’ve done so many procedures for my acne scars and always felt nothing has worked, I decided to give it one last shot and see if anything else can be done. I came to Awaken Aesthetics and liked how Dr. Ahn explained everything and was very detailed. I really like the results and I am happy, I would definitely come for more. My mom had blepharoplasty done also and she was very happy with the results, and how Dr. Ahn does everything himself and takes his time. Not to mention Faith, very helpful in any questions or concerns. Overall everything was great.” *
