Depending on your condition, your surgeon will create incisions in the creases of your upper eyelids, below your eyelashes, or in the innermost part of your eyelid. To reshape the area, your surgeon will remove excess fat, skin, or muscle. The surgical incisions are then closed using very small sutures. Your surgeon will then cover your wound with a clean dressing to protect it from injury.The recoveryImmediately after the procedure, it’s normal to have soreness and bruising in your eyelid area. To prevent any discomfort, your surgeon will advise you to take pain medications and anti-inflammatories. You will need to place an ice pack on your surgical wound for several days to reduce swelling of the area. For the first few weeks after the procedure, you may experience watery eyes and light sensitivity. Once your stitches are removed, the swelling and bruising around your eyes will start to diminish.When to consult with your surgeonBefore discharge, your surgeon will give you a schedule regarding your follow-up.
