Feeling self-conscious about bags under your eyes? These puffy areas, created by deposits of fat, do not have to be permanent; instead, you can get an eyelid lift to correct the issue. Eyelid lift recovery is a fairly quick and painless process. Here’s an idea of what to expect after surgery.

At the beginning of your eyelid lift recovery, it’s common to experience some blurred vision caused by swelling; this is to be expected. The majority of bruising and swelling will resolve in the first 10 days. Your eyes may also feel tender, tight, or sore. Some minor pain or discomfort is also standard after the procedure. Cold compresses will also help to decrease the recovery time. The sutures used in the procedure are normally removed five to six days after surgery.

After the healing process is complete, you’ll look and feel younger. Learn more about eyelid lift recovery by requesting a consultation with facial plastic surgeon Dr. James Ridgway at his Bellevue location.
