If youβre considering a blepharoplasty procedure anytime soon, itβs important to have an understanding of the eyelid lift recovery process. Blepharoplasty is just another term for an eyelid lift, which is a fairly straightforward process from the surgery to the healing phase.
The surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure, allowing you to go home immediately afterwards. Patients should arrange for a driver to take them home before the day of the surgery. For a week after surgery, your tissues will be healing and adjusting to their new locations. In order to avoid any issues with eyelid lift recovery, make sure to keep your head above chest level while sleeping and to avoid smoking for at least a few weeks afterwards.
