Do you have droopy upper eyelids that are making you look tired and old? An upper eyelid lift can rejuvenate your appearance because it will tighten the skin, and lift your droopy eyelids. It also restores clear vision if the eyelids hang too low. Are you curious to find out how long is the recovery from an upper eyelid lift?
Benefits of upper eyelid surgery
An upper eyelid lift or upper blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure that is done to lift sagging eyelids and rejuvenate the eye area. The eyelid skin becomes thin and crepey with age, giving the face a tired, sleepy appearance. An upper eyelid lift or blepharoplasty makes the eyes look brighter and more alert, and revitalizes the entire face.
What’s involved in upper eyelid surgery?
An upper eyelid lift is a very straightforward procedure. An incision is made within the natural folds of the eyelids, and excess skin is removed and bulging fat pads are also removed or repositioned.
How Long Is Recovery From An Upper Eyelid Lift?
Recovery from upper eyelid surgery takes 2-3 days on average. There is typically some swelling and bruising after the operation, which may take 5-7 days to resolve. Most patients can resume normal activities within a day or two of surgery. Patients are advised to follow the post-surgical instructions of their surgeon, to ensure optimal healing.
The results of an upper eyelid lift generally look very natural and last a long time.
